The flame will pass between 8:40 a.m. and 9 a.m. It will travel around the Verrier site where 2,000 schoolchildren are expected to perform a flashmob to a song they wrote about the Olympic Games, set to music by Paul d’Amour who often comes to perform at the Halle Verrière. Then, we will have an echo in the Olympic discipline of the company In fine, which will present its vertical Olympics. We will also have the presence of Gauthier Fayolle, Freestyle football champion. And everything will be orchestrated by the master of ceremonies Calixte de Nigremont.

A flamboyant day where the people of Moselle will be able to enjoy the Olympic flame as it travels.
