But with the opening ceremony of the 2024 Paris Olympics just days away, the crowds have thinned to a trickle. “It’s a catastrophe,” said Mr. Pierret, surveying his near-empty terrace. Before him, thousands of brightly colored bleacher seats lined the quays of the Seine, which are now cordoned off. The river flowed by quietly — devoid of traffic — a scene reminiscent of Covid lockdowns. “The Olympics were supposed to be great for business,” Mr. Pierret said.

But if you walk a short distance away from the sparkling Stade de France, which is about six miles from downtown Paris, you’ll find a very different world. The Stade de France will host track and field events and Rugby sevens game during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Investment fueled by the Olympics has poured into Seine-Saint-Denis to fund improved public transit, more green spaces and better-quality housing, Troussel said.

(Photo by Francois Nel/Getty Images)Andy Murray has announced his retirement, saying the Paris Olympics will be his "last ever tennis tournament". The three-time Grand Slam champion, who is the only man to have won two Olympic golds in the sport, made the announcement in a post on X. The 37-year-old memorably ended a long wait for British tennis when he won Wimbledon in 2013, having been beaten in the final the year before in emotional scenes. He repeated the success in 2016 having won his first grand slam at the US Open in 2012. After losing in the Wimbledon doubles a few weeks ago, he said he was ready to call it a day.

Her multi-hour phone blitz to Democratic Party power players on Sunday hinted at an operation primed ahead of time but that was kept secret and didn’t leak. The vice president has shown signs of improving her political skills recently, but that’s never been her forte. In a memo to reporters, the Trump campaign previewed a blistering assault to come on Harris. Harris is the least popular vice president in history – which is no surprise given her terrible record,” the memo said. The question now is whether Harris, who has exhibited considerable political liabilities as vice president, has the skills, staying power and luck to take advantage.

By age 13, Neeraj Chopra weighed nearly 190 pounds, making him one of the biggest boys in his tiny farming village. By chance, he saw a javelin being thrown and noticed that, in flight, it seemed to shimmy like a fish through water. A decade after that improbable beginning, Chopra won the javelin competition at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. It was the first gold medal ever won by India in track and field, considered the marquee sport of the Summer Games, and only the country’s second in an individual event in more than a century of Olympic competition. Chopra’s triumph inspired athletes across India, the world’s most populous nation.

CNN —Tour de France champion Tadej Pogačar will not compete at the upcoming Paris Olympics due to fatigue, the Slovenian Olympic Committee announced on Monday. The Slovenian Olympic Committee cited “being too tired” as the reason for Pogačar’s withdrawal from the Olympics, according to Reuters, adding that his place in the team would be taken by Domen Novak. Pogačar crosses the finish line of Sunday's time trial in Nice, the final stage of this year's Tour de France. At this year’s Tour de France, Pogačar claimed six stage victories – the most since 2009 – and ultimately finished six minutes and 17 seconds ahead of Denmark’s Jonas Vingegaard. He capped off his latest title with victory in Sunday’s time trial in Nice, which marked the final stage of the race.

Read previewThe Olympic Games in Paris hasn't even begun, but talent agents are already looking to the Los Angeles Games in 2028. Savvy agents are leveraging the Paris Games — a huge moment in their own right — to snag fresh, breakout talent and negotiate long-term commercial deals with the expectation that the Los Angeles Games will draw even more demand from brands that want to work with athletes. More talent agencies have also expanded into working with Olympic athletes. Crane said the Los Angeles Games are a big focus for the firm. "Everything is a little more amplified in Los Angeles, and there's going to be a lot of media and press.

Rafael Nadal beaten by Nuno Borges in Swedish Open final

CNN —Portugal’s Nuno Borges played the match of his life to comfortably beat Rafael Nadal 6-3 6-2 in the final of the Swedish Open and claim the first ATP title of his career. Borges’ victory in his maiden ATP Tour final – against Nadal on clay, no less – lifts him to a career high of No. 161, was playing in his first final since the 2022 French Open, but two mammoth three-set victories in the previous two rounds had perhaps taken their toll on the 38-year-old. However, Nadal revealed after losing in the first round of the French Open that he is open to continuing his career should his body continue to improve. The 22-time grand slam champion is due to compete in the singles and doubles with defending French Open and Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz.

No nation officially wins the Olympics, but that doesn’t stop journalists and others from trying to keep score by counting gold, silver and bronze medals. The raw medal count overly favors populous nations, while ranking nations by medals per capita overly favors small nations that win one, two or a few medals, possibly by fluke. The problem, as I said, is that it’s not reliable when it comes to the performance of very small nations. For example, rural counties dominate the list of counties with the highest kidney cancer rates, which seems like a good reason to rush funding to rural health authorities. But guess what — rural counties also dominate the list of counties with the lowest kidney cancer rates.

LONDON — LeBron James, a soon-to-be four-time Olympian shooting for his third gold medal, will carry the American flag for the United States delegation during the Paris Games opening ceremony Friday along the River Seine. The United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee said Monday in a news release that James had won a vote among nearly 600 members of Team USA to carry the flag.

The unforgettable moment when a competing athlete first enters the Olympic Village in Paris may be defined not by the complex’s impressive size and sweep, but by a smell: the scent of freshly baked baguettes. This is by design. “Every French village has a bakery,” said Guillaume Thomas, who works in communications for the Paris Olympics. For the 15,000 Olympic athletes competing this summer, food is vital for optimizing performance. The French would like to sprinkle in some delight.
