The Olympic Flame lights up Cambrai

This Tuesday, July 2nd was gloomy… until the passage of the Olympic Flame which brightened the Cambrai landscape. This was followed by a successful party for the youngest. In Cambrai, we will remember this passage.

It had to be a memorable day, and it was. This Tuesday, July 2, Cambrai welcomed the Olympic Flame. Like a symbol, the weather was gloomy… until the Flame lit up Cambrai as it passed in front of the town hall. After this relay — bringing the Flame to the new Pierre de Coubertin hall — the weather cleared, the sun came back and the Place de Cambrai began to applaud its athletes.

After the passage of the Flame…

Indeed, after the passage of the Flame, the City took over with a short relay honoring local sports personalities — Richard Dodrieux, Gérard Prévost, etc. — culminating in the lighting of a cauldron by young Mickaela Lahlah. A few minutes later, the city’s sports associations and schoolchildren paraded around the Place de Cambrai to the applause of the public.

Before and after the passage of the Flame, the young people were able to try various sports on the square of Cambrai. About twenty associations met to introduce their sport to the youngest. Boxing, badminton, climbing, football, rugby… Everyone was able to try a sport that, perhaps, seemed inaccessible to them. If the activities were reserved for CM2 of Cambrai this morning, they are now open to all children of Cambrai this afternoon. Everyone is delighted and fully enjoying it.
