Olympics: Macron to meet International Olympic Committee commission on Tuesday

Organisers say spectators will be able to travel around the city using public transportation, including a beefed-up metro system, but LA is up against Paris's first-rate metro.

"Mr. Macron has also confirmed that he will be meeting with the IOC Evaluation Commission while they are in Paris and that he will be active in backing the bid all the way to Lima".

The bidding race has been dominated by recent intrigue over the possibility that the International Olympic Committee may award both the 2024 and 2028 Games at the same time at September's vote in order to lock in two solid bids.

The IOC has four vice presidents looking into the prospect of awarding the 2024 and 2028 Games at the same time in September. "But they just had the initial conversation with us".

Moreover, according to Committee Chair Baumann, "Los Angeles is already a great Olympic city but after these three days, we realize that was a great understatement".

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said that every Olympic athlete would be given two free tickets to the competition they were competing in.

Merkel spokesman Steffen Seibert said Friday that the chancellor will receive Macron on Monday afternoon, a day after he takes office. "At the right moment, as the no risk option". "The IOC demanded to know our plans", he said. "2024-2028 was not a matter of discussion".

"Emmanuel Macron has been a supporter of the Paris 2024 bid since the very beginning".

"Paris excels in its technical facets relating to how it will host the various sports although our interest is based around the fact that if it wins athletics will be the focal point of the Games".

But Estanguet is only too aware that 12 years ago Paris passed this stage with flying colours, receiving a higher technical evaluation than rivals London only to lose the bid for the 2012 Games. "To get a direct idea of what the city of Paris and the bid committee are proposing". The new president has already thrown his weight behind Paris' bid, telling IOC President Thomas Bach over the phone of its "expected benefits for all French people".

Bid organisers are hopeful that Macron's internationalist outlook will be a boost to their campaign, and he had signalled his intent to meet with the IOC's evaluation commission on Sunday.

The 2024/2028 possibility followed the International Olympic Committee evaluation commission throughout its stay in Los Angeles, from meeting at the JW Marriott, to a star-studded dinner hosted by Wasserman on Wednesday night to exploring venues from the Rose Bowl to Honda Center to Long Beach and a virtual reality tour, also hosted by Wasserman, of the $2.6 billion stadium being constructed at Hollywood Park.
