The Olympic flame will pass through eight towns in Yvelines. The Yvelines département recently unveiled the eight towns in the region that will host the Olympic torch relay on 23 July 2024. 100 people will carry the flame. Three days before the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games on 26 July on the Seine in Paris, the flame will pass through the towns of Mantes-la-Ville, Poissy, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Rambouillet for segments of 3 to 5 km, Saint-Rémy-les-Chevreuse, Les Mureaux and Guyancourt (at the national golf course), for segments of 1 km.
Saint-Germain-en-Laye, labelled a "Land of Games" in 2019, has been chosen by TEAM GB, one of the most medal-winning teams at the Summer Olympics, for its preparation from 2022 to 2024. The qualitý of the top-level sports facilities, the ideal living environment and the location closé to the Paris 2024 competition venues in ST Germain en Laye appealed to the team.
A sporting city, with the emblematic Paris-Saint-Germain football club, but also a city of history, with a long history as a royal city and an exceptional natural heritage? It is also one of France's most international cities.
