Martin Fourcade, Olympic biathlon champion and president of the Paris 2024 Athletes’ Commission, explains the French know-how in the organization of major sports events!
"A wonderful trio of events in preparation with precisely these World Championships, with the Rugby World Cup in France in 2023 and the Olympics and Paralympics Games in Paris in 2024."
Are the 2022 Finals a good rehearsal for the 2023 World Cup ?
“I think athletes also have with the years, with experience, the distance to come to understand, but also to provide feedback on the organisation, the opportunity to have rehearsal events like these ones, life-size.
It is about being able to improve and being even more efficient next year to fully satisfy the athletes.”
Paris 2024 and Courchevel Méribel 2023, is there a French know-how ?
“This is an unique opportunity for French sport. The French Touch you were talking about is above all the desire to be willing to host the world doing so with our values and our sensitivity. And apparently, people are sensitive.”
