200 Days Until 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris: Armenia's Athletes and Event Highlights

With just 200 days remaining until the start of the much-anticipated 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, Armenia proudly stands with seven athletes set to compete in various sports.

Among the athletes representing Armenia are shooter Elmira Karapetyan, esteemed wrestlers Artur Aleksanyan, Malkhas Amoyan, Slavik Galstyan, Vazgen Tevanyan, Arsen Harutyunyan, and gymnast Artur Davtyan. These athletes embody the spirit of Armenian sportsmanship and dedication as they prepare to showcase their talents on the global stage.

Scheduled from July 26 to August 11, 2024, the 33rd Summer Olympic Games in Paris promise a unique opening ceremony. Departing from tradition, the grand inauguration will take place along the Seine River, marking a historic first for the Olympic Games.

Paris, following London's footsteps, becomes the second city to host the Olympics three times—previously in 1900, 1924, and now in 2024. Significantly, the date chosen for the opening ceremony holds symbolic resonance, coinciding with the closure of the 1924 Games.

An intriguing feature of this year's opening ceremony is the teams' entrance via boats, a departure from conventional stadium marches. The Paris Olympics will have 32 sports, awarding 329 medals, with break dancing making its debut as a new sport.

Additionally, certain events are set to take place not only in Paris but also in Tahiti, Nantes, Lyon, Marseille, Saint-Etienne, and more, showcasing the diverse and widespread nature of this global sporting event.

A staggering number exceeding 10,000 participants will join the Olympics, with approximately 45,000 volunteers from various corners of the world contributing to the smooth conduct of the Games.

Moreover, the organizing committee unveiled the Olympic Games' mascot—Phryges—a symbolic representation reminiscent of French hats. With its red color and resemblance to the iconic Phrygian hat, a symbol of the French Revolution and liberty, Phryges embodies the spirit of unity and freedom celebrated at the Games.
