Paris Olympic village ready on time as confidence grows

February 29, 2024

The organisers of the Paris Olympics are set to take the keys for the athletes' village on Thursday a day ahead of schedule, reinforcing growing confidence that they will be ready for the Games. The handover target of March 1 for the crucial piece of Olympics infrastructure has been respected, demonstrating that France was "capable of delivering on time", an advisor to Macron told reporters this week. "We made a promise: that we would create above all a new neighbourhood for Seine-Saint-Denis rather than an Olympic and Paralympic village," said Laurent Michaud, director of village operations for the organising committee. This photograph taken on February 16, 2024 shows a general view of the Olympic village where the athletes will be housed in Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine, a nearby suburb of Paris. Organisers are set to spend the next four months fitting out the village with more than 300,000 items of furniture and decoration.
