It's funny how with friendly insults there is usually a seething hatred just under the surface.

They are fantastic venues; quite an architectural tradition on display.

Excel center isn't a bad location! Jubilee line & DLR make it worth existing
Just don't take an hotel night because City airport is a nightmare

The Paris 2024 baseball (and softball) venue(s) will be at Marne-la-Vallée (aka ©Disneyland Paris).

BTW, those sports have been added (again) very recently in the IOC' list...so...

Hopefully they won't be like London and only had it visible for only those that attended track and field or ceremonies.

Petition calls for Paris 2024 aquatics venue to be named after Camille Muffat

A petition calling for the new Paris 2024 aquatics stadium to be named after Camille Muffat, the London Olympic 400 metres freestyle champion who tragically died in a helicopter accident less than three years later, has already gained over 10,000 signatures.

A nice article on the French contractors who sponsored the Olympic bid now looking for big profits from the construction and security contracts at the 2024 Games.

The article also notes some political and bookkeeping issues.

I suspect that visitors better get used to drones and not conduct any illegal transactions on the street.

First post here after lurking for a number of years. Looking forward to following the preparation here. Been a few times to Stade de France in rugby, athletics and concert modes and always enjoyed the place.

Watched the 2015 World Track Cycling Championships in St Quentin-en Yvelines from a few places around the track and the sight-lines can be great or very poor, especially if you're seated above the exit of the last bend. With the curve and the banking of the track, the riders disappear. They also had some humidity issues during the meeting with water dripping onto the track from the roof due to raising the temperature to reduce air pressure, but that was during the winter. I imagine the humidity issues will be controlled, but the sight-lines will be difficult. Would be interested to hear from someone who has been to London, Rio or other velodromes.

If the committees for 2024, 2028 and, for that matter, also 2020 try to do just the opposite of many of the things that were done for 2012, they should come out ahead.

Sebastian Coe and other people working with his committee, including the graphic firm responsible for 2012's logo and the movie producer who did the ceremonies, didn't do justice to the Olympic games.

The event's successors in 2016 didn't help matters too.

However, attendance for 2012 was very good. So that one aspect of the games five years ago should be admired by 2020, 2024 and 2028 and is the one thing future committees should attempt to emulate.

There is already a swimming pool named Camille Muffat in Nice but I think it would be well desserved.

Hidalgo hopes to get rid of diesel cars in Paris by the time of the Olympics.
