In France, Olympic fans will already in celebration mode, preparing to welcome the opening of the Summer Games for the first time in 100 years.

Not according to a couple of French members here. Especially after this weekend's Euro political turmoil, seems like the Paris 2024 Olympics will either be tossed to the wayside at best, or used as some sort of political pawn at worst. Which in either case, is a sad state of affairs.

Was so looking forward to Paris 2024, too, but like much Tokyo 2020ne (but for different reasons of course), it's looking to become another hot mess. But still holding out for hope for a spectacular Paris 2024 Games!!

This was indeed my fear from Sunday evening. But what happened yesterday and today seems to dispel this fear, given the latest shocks in French political life, in my opinion the Olympic Games will not even be a campaign theme.

On the other hand, it is clear that until July 7, in France, we will talk very little about the Olympic Games. Since Sunday it is absolutely no longer major news in our country.
