Basketball, shooting, suspense around the boxing scene

The Paris 2024 Organizing Committee has to worry about the map of the Olympic venue.

A little less than two years after changing the map of the competition venue, the organizers of the Paris 2024 Olympics are once again worried at the risk of unhappiness not only in basketball, but also in shooting and boxing.

After a money-saving reorganization in September 2020, swimming moved from Saint-Denis (a town on the northern outskirts of Paris) to the west of the capital (Nantere) and Le Bourget (north of Paris). Landed in. With Villeneuve-d’Ascq (near Lille in northern France), I had no plans to retouch the card again. It was unfortunate that I had to play in the Hall of Parc de Expo de Versailles for the group stage without relying on the stars of the French basketball team playing in the NBA. According to some observers, a bad Twitter topic led by the International Basketball Federation has caused the Olympic Organizing Committee (Cojo) to abandon the site.

Since then, full discussions have been held. Between the International Federation, the IOC, the City Hall of Paris, Kojo … “The equation is not simple“We explain everywhere. The city hall of Paris, the host city of the Olympic Games, wants to continue playing basketball in Paris.”Far from Paris, this increases carbon dioxide emissions … “Slide the elected officials.

Northern basketball, handball in Paris?

The last option that has been placed on the table and not yet verified is the exchange for a handball that must evolve in Villeneuve-Dusk. It will play in place of basketball at Parc des Expos de Versailles and will return to the northern finals as basketball remains in Bercy for the finals. On Wednesday before the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) in Lausanne, this option was subject to muscle exchange.By evoking the solution3 hours from Paris»Although not appropriate, everyone understood that Andreas Zagklis, Secretary-General of the International Basketball Federation, was talking about Stade Pierre Maurois, home of the Lille football club.

Response from Tony Estanguet, Chairman of the Organizing Committee: “Everyone wants to play at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in the heart of Paris“. The whims of basketball players sometimes went terrible with Kojo. Solution”Must be accepted not only by you, but by all stakeholders and public opinion“I worked on the Triple Olympic Champion. He waved again.Budget limit“And need”Optimize“. In the midst of an inflationary period, there is a risk that Kojo’s budget will change drastically this year when expenses and revenues will be scrutinized. For basketball, a meeting will be held next week and the secretariat of Kojo will be decided on June 23. The purpose is to do.

Another explosive equation: the location of the shooting event at La Courneuve (Seine-Saint-Denis, northern Paris). Located on the ground of Essence, the former military ground has been cleared, but is now balanced as it is not ready in time.

This question is politically sensitive, as Seine-Saint-Denis bears the brunt of change. Especially around Le Bourget, there is a risk that the construction of the media village will be stopped, the new subway station will not be in time, and the shooting test will fly.

Shooting vs boxing?

Aiming at the national center of Châteauroux, about 270 km south of Paris, Kojo returned there last weekend. “”It’s no longer the technical side, it’s the political side“I explained to AFP Michel Baczyck, the chairman of the French Shooting Federation. The Indore community is quite excited about the idea of ​​hosting the Olympics and is already owned by the Chinese to meet the need for housing. I’m trying to buy a site.

But if Seine-Saint-Denis loses a shot, it could probably recover … Boxing, the moment planned at the Susanne Renren Court in Roland Garros, will benefit from a removable roof by 2024. I studied temperature and noise conditions. Two years after the event, the organizers are in a difficult situation in every way. “”It’s going to be a fight (…), the federal government wants things, the community, the mayor of Paris …Predict the observer.
