Public approval high for Paris 2024’s proposals for a new Games experience

Paris 2024’s proposal to add four new sports (breaking, skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing) to the programme for the 2024 Olympic Games and to allow the general public to take part in the Games through mass, virtual and connected events, has met with widespread approval among French people.

Following the official presentation of the proposals yesterday, Thursday 21 February 2019, the French Institute of Public Opinion (IFOP) conducted an opinion survey on behalf of Paris 2024 and which showed how willing French people are to play a more active role in the Games and to see their country stage Games that are both spectacular and youth-oriented.
