About our Paris 2024 Olympics news

Latest news on the Paris 2024 Olympics, providing comprehensive coverage of the Olympic Games, including athlete news, venues, sports, schedules, medals, controversies, and more as the world prepares for this global sports event.

The 2024 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, are scheduled to take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 in Paris, France. With over 10,000 athletes from more than 200 nations expected to participate in 32 sports, including breaking which will make its Olympic debut, Paris 2024 promises to be a spectacular global event.

As the Olympic flame arrives in France following the lighting ceremony in Olympia, Greece, organisers are finalising preparations for the Games amid ongoing security concerns. The planned Seine river opening ceremony has been scaled back due to safety fears, while over 300,000 hopefuls have applied for the 45,000 volunteer positions. Sporting federations are also grappling with the controversial decision to allow Individual Neutral Athletes from Russia and Belarus to compete.

Paris 2024 aims to be the most accessible and inclusive Olympics yet, with a focus on gender equality, sustainability, and youth engagement. Organisers have unveiled innovative plans like installing a temporary arena at Place de la Concorde for urban sports and the Olympic debut of breaking. The Games will also showcase France's rich heritage, with events at iconic venues like the Palace of Versailles, Champs-Élysées, and the Eiffel Tower.

This will be the third time Paris has hosted the Summer Olympics, following the 1900 and 1924 Games, marking a significant milestone in Olympic history. The city's successful bid emphasised its experience in hosting major sports events, compact venue concept, and strong public support.
