Visit of the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 to Greece

A three-day visit to Greece is made by members of the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games "Paris 2024" to discuss with the Hellenic Olympic Committee organizational issues for the Ceremonies of the Olympic Flame.
The visit of the five-member French delegation began at the HOC's offices, where the first discussions on all issues related to the Olympic Flame and the Torch Relay took place, in the presence of THE HOC President Spyros Capralos, the Secretary General Manolis Kolymbadis and the President of the Olympic Torch Relay Committee Thanasis Vassiliadis.
Mr. Capralos welcomed the members of the French delegation, stressing: "Dear friends from France, we are glad that you are here to discuss the details for the conduct of the Ceremonies of Touch and Surrender of the Olympic Flame for Paris. The previous two times, for Tokyo and Beijing there was no Torch Relay due to the pandemic, but now we will keep the tradition and it will be repeated. The next Olympic Games are particularly important for us as well, as with France we have excellent relations at all levels and together we revived the Olympic Games, in 1894 with the establishment of the IOC and in 1896 with their organization in Athens. I believe that you will have an excellent cooperation with the President of the Olympic Torch Relay Committee Thanasis Vassiliadis who has a lot of experience in this field."

On Thursday, the representatives of the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games "Paris 2024" will travel to Ancient Olympia, to see up close the facilities and the place where the Olympic Flame is born to begin its journey to the Olympic Stadium of the city that organizes the Olympics.
This will be followed on Friday by a visit to the Panathenaic Stadium, where the sacred Flame after the Torch Relay on Greek soil, is handed over to the Organizing Committee of the next Olympic Games.
