Have Barely arriving, the new sports minister and Olympic Amelie Udea Castella will be baptized by Olympic-level fire after the blunder of the Champions League final at the Stade de France on Saturday.

This former junior tennis champion, former Emmanuel Macron’s Ena classmate, probably wasn’t thinking about stepping on the Senate carpet right away. On Wednesday (5 pm), she left herself to a game of questions from a senator who asked to know more about what happened with Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, a bystander of the Liverpool-Real clash. increase.

The legislative election period began quite a bit for a smooth inauguration, but European football was invited to the table.

I will continue to admire you. “Anyway, in these cases you are on the same line as the interior,” observes a formerly elected official.

In theory, she would have more free hands, as she is no longer under the supervision of the Ministry of National Education. And, especially for two years after the Olympics and Paralympics in Paris, she is in charge of this huge file.

After kissing her already known Olympic boss Tony Estanguet on Tuesday afternoon, she toured some of the services of the Organizing Committee (Cojo) with Philip Mae, Chief of Staff of Finistair. Did. It includes up to the 7th roof terrace of the building in Saint-Denis, with breathtaking views of all the cranes that pollute the horizon of the sector around the Stade de France, especially from an Olympic point of view.

Then leave the journalist for seriousness and a working meeting with General Manager and Chief Financial Officer Tony Estange to scan for security, budgets, sponsors, competition venues and much more. After the Stade de France storm is over, she can concentrate on becoming the “animator of this entire ecosystem” that she defines herself.
