Heritage meets sports in Paris Olympics

AS the 2024 Olympic Games descend upon Paris this summer, the world will witness athletic prowess and sporting spectacle on a canvas of history and architectural marvels. The 2024 Paris Olympics will rely on purpose-built venues to host some sports, as well as an Olympic Village and media village, but many of them are set to feature the city’s heritage.

As is often the case with the Olympics, the venues are spread far and wide, and few are located within walking distance of one another.
