Paris 2024: the route of the Olympic flame in Seine-et-Marne revealed

The newspaper “Le Parisien” revealed the program of the Olympic flame route in Seine-et-Marne on Saturday July 20. A mystery remains for the moment: the name of the emblematic torchbearers who will carry the torch (we insistently mention the name of Lilian Thuram). This will be the third time that the Olympic torch will cross the department after 1968 (Grenoble Winter Olympics) and 1992 (Albertville Winter Games).

Departure from Fontainebleau at 8 a.m.

The Olympic flame will be launched at 8 a.m. Defense National Sports Center (CNSD), to Fontainebleausite which will host the South Korean delegation during the Games. It will then move on to Avon before returning to Fontainebleau. At 8:44 a.m., the Olympic torch will be in the courtyard of the castle to put the modern pentathlon in the spotlight. She will finish her journey at the Philippe Mahut stadium, still in Fontainebleau, at 9:28 a.m.

From 10:20 a.m., the flame will be Pontault-Combault. It will leave the Roger Boisramé gymnasium to arrive around twenty minutes later at City Hall. At 11:23 a.m., she will be at Lagny-sur-Marnewill leave the town hall to arrive at the Frémoy stadium, Torcy, passing through Saint-Thibault-des-Vignes. It will then cross the Olympic nautical stadium in Vaires-sur-Marne which will host the rowing and canoeing events.

Arrival in Meaux at 7:20 p.m.

At 2 p.m., the Olympic flame will be at Melun. His departure will be from the National Gendarmerie Officers School (EOGN) with an arrival scheduled at Place Praslin around twenty minutes later. At 3:05 p.m., she will join Vaires-sur-Marne and will then cross Briou-Chantereine before joining Chelles where a fan zone will open its doors on Friday July 26, the day of the opening ceremony of the Games.

At 4:55 p.m., the torch will be brandished on the famous Caesar Tower in the medieval city of Provins. His journey will end an hour later at Meaux, chosen as a stopover town. At 6:04 p.m., it will set off from the Great War Museum, cross the Marne twice before arriving at the Georges Tauziet stadium at 7:20 p.m. where the final ceremony and festivities will take place.
