On Monday (January 8), President Emmanuel Macron commenced the 200-day countdown to the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. In doing so, he urged the French public to become more active in athletics as the nation prepares to host the Games for the first time in a century.
Macron said in a video posted on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter while posing next to a punchbag with gloves on his shoulder and a trace of perspiration on his forehead.
It's in 200 days and it starts now. That's why we have a major national cause this year: sport.- Emmanuel Macron
Sport at school. As you know, we've made 30 minutes of sport compulsory for all elementary school pupils, we've added more sport in secondary school and I invite you all to do at least 30 minutes of sport every day, I hope more if you can.- Emmanuel Macron
Macron further emphasized the additional objectives that France had established for the Games.
France will be hosting the most carbon-free Olympic and Paralympic Games in history, green Games that comply with the Paris (climate) agreements.- Emmanuel Macron
We're going to host gender parity Games, with as many female athletes as male. We'll have some exceptional delegations of Olympic and Paralympic athletes and, I hope, a lot of French medals.- Emmanuel Macron
With under 200 days remaining until the commencement of the Games, organizers are diligently striving to finalize venues that have fallen behind time.
"We are in the home straight, now we have to sprint,"one of the organizers of the Olympic Games in Paris declares two hundred days prior to the opening ceremony. Tony Estanguet, the president of the organizing committee, aptly remarks that the enormous quantity of labor that has been completed thus far "is useless."
According to official statements from France, all preparations are proceeding according to plan, and the nation will be prepared to receive over 10 million spectators on July 26.
The CEO of Solideo, Nicolas Ferrand, reports that 84% of the work has been completed, as opposed to the 89% that was originally anticipated. Despite this, the organization tasked with providing the infrastructure and venues for the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 has identified several issues.
One such aspect pertains to security. 168 accidents have been documented across the 70 newly opened sites, which is four times fewer than the typical number.
Delays have been observed in three specific domains: construction of the Colombes swimming pool, the training facility for synchronized swimming, and the Grand Palais. However, these issues have only persisted for a few weeks and do not seem to have had an impact on the competition thus far.
The Olympics will be conducted from July 26 to August 11, while the Paralympics will be held from August 28 to September 8.

Final Words

In less than 200 days, Paris 2024 will provide an Olympic experience. The Summer Games will be situated in the center of Paris, with the city's emblematic landmarks integrated into the design as a backdrop. Gourmet, regional fare should be provided to spectators and athletes in collaboration with regional chefs, restaurant proprietors, and producers.
As an unprecedented occurrence, the Opening Ceremony will feature an equal number of male and female athletes competing in an Olympic competition for the first time.
