Olympic Games: Paris 2024

Paris 2024 Vision

Paris 2024 will see a new vision of Olympism in action, delivered in a unique spirit of international celebration.

We will offer one of the world’s most inspirational cities as a memorable stage for the athletes – and a truly global platform to promote them, and their incredible stories.

And we will partner with the entire Olympic family to demonstrate that, more than ever after an extremely challenging period, sport has a unique power to help create a better world.

Our plan features 95 per cent existing or temporary venues, and every single one has a clear, defined legacy aligned with the city’s long-term development plans. 

The sporting celebration will flow along the Seine, from the new Olympic Village, just 15 minutes from Paris city centre, to such city centre landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais.

Paris has welcomed people from all over the world – including the founding fathers of the Olympic Movement – for hundreds of years, to collaborate and inspire each other; to shape ideas and forge the future.

In 2024, we will stage magnificent and meaningful Games that will set a new milestone in sporting history, in the city where Pierre de Coubertin first imagined the potential of a world united by sport.

Hanoi Formula 1 circuit for 2020 Vietnam Grand Prix revealed

Formula 1 chiefs have revealed the first official track map of the new Vietnam street circuit, which will join the grand prix calendar in 2020.

The 3.458-mile long street circuit, which will feature one newly constructed area, runs near a stadium in a suburb of Hanoi.

The circuit features a straight nearly one mile long and early simulations suggest a top speed of 208mph.

Some cues have been taken from existing F1 tracks, with the tight Turns 1 and 2 modelled on the opening sequence at the Nurburgring.

The section out of Turn 12 will weave through the barriers in a manner similar to the climb out of Sainte Devote in Monaco.

A later section of the track – through Turns 16 to 19 – is similar to the Esses at Suzuka.

F1 race director Charlie Whiting visited the Hanoi location ahead of the Japanese GP, and said he had no doubts that the facility would be ready in time.

“It is mainly on the streets, but there is a section that is not yet built,” he explained.

“That is an open site where the pit buildings are going to be built.

“Part of the track will be built there, which doesn’t exist at the moment. But it will become a road after that.”
