Paris Olympic’s 100-day countdown starts

The countdown of Paris Olympic Games-2024 has started.

The countdown clock in Paris hit the 100-day mark Tuesday.  

The French capital will officially open the games July 26 with a celebration on the Seine River.

This year marks a century since Paris last hosted the Olympics, positioning it to become the second city after London to have hosted the Games three times. The historical and current connections are palpable, making the city a living legacy of the Olympics.

That came on the same day the torch was lit at the birthplace of the sporting competition in Ancient Olympia, Greece.

A relay of torchbearers will carry the flame along a 5,000-kilometer (3,100-mile) route through Greece until handing it over to the Paris Games organizers in Athens on April 26.

Amid these high expectations, the organizing committee is tackling numerous challenges, primarily focusing on security and transportation logistics.
