More than 11,000 athletes (including 408 French) for a thousand of medals to be won. Postponed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Olympic Games take place from Friday July 23 to Sunday August 8 in Tokyo (Japan). This 32nd modern Olympiad has already beaten a record, that of the number of competing sports, 33, including 5 new disciplines.
Besides, what will surfing or climbing do at the Olympics? Who go succeed King Usain Bolt over 100 meters? Will Teddy Riner pick up his third Olympic crown? The French Pauline Ferrand-Prévot and Loana Lecomte will they climb as a duo on the podium in mountain biking? Will Mélina Robert-Michon end up covering herself with gold in the discus throw?
So many questions posed by the editorial staff of franceinfo, in the starting blocks. To go “faster, higher, stronger”, as the motto of Baron Pierre de Coubertin says, we offer you our own calendar, not exhaustive and subjective. This is a day-to-day program, depending on the events of the most anticipated French athletes and predictable appointments, not dependent on the qualifications of each other. Happy Olympics to all of you!
