CNN —The mayor of Paris told French radio on Wednesday that she would swim in the city’s River Seine next week, in a bid to show its suitability for the Olympics despite ongoing cleanliness concerns. However, despite a 1.4 billion Euro (1.5 billion USD) clean-up plan, concerns remain over the river’s suitability for swimming events. Mayor Hidalgo – one of the main faces behind the organization of the Paris Olympics – had previously said she would swim in the Seine but postponed the dip following the dissolution of the National Assembly by French President Emmanuel Macron. Macron, who also said he would swim in the Seine, has yet to announce a date. The Opening Ceremony of the Paris Olympics is set to take place on the Seine on July 26 if currents are not too strong.

CNN —Reigning world champion Simone Biles will become the fourth American woman gymnast to compete in three Olympic Games after placing first in the all-around competition at the 2024 US Olympic Gymnastics Trials Sunday in Minneapolis. Biles started her night on the vault, posting a score of 15.500. Her second rotation of the night - the uneven bars - showed Biles’ consistency, as she finished with a score of 14.200. Like on night one of the competition, Biles was shaky on the beam - her third rotation. In Paris, Biles’ first opportunity to add to her haul of seven Olympic medals will be the women’s team final on July 30, two days before the all-around final.
