The Olympic Games in Tokyo (Japan) will start on Friday July 23. Thursday, impatience reigns in the Olympic Village.

With a year late due to the health crisis linked to Covid-19, the Olympic Games in Tokyo (Japan) will begin on Friday July 23. Thursday, on the eve of the opening ceremony, excitement and impatience reigns among the athletes present in the Olympic Village. They want to forget the health constraints to focus only on the exceptional aspect of the event.

Even if optimism is in order with the French delegation, it is difficult to forget the specific context of these Olympiads. The French football team made its debut in a stadium without any spectators. Only the journalists and the organizers attended the meeting where the Blues lost 4-1 against Mexico. For two weeks, Tokyo will be the center of the world for already unforgettable Games.
