The flame of the 2024 Olympics will be placed on the Eiffel Tower

The organizers want to maximize the external effect.

The Olympic flame of the 2024 Summer Games will be placed on the symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower. The series of sports competitions will open in the French capital on July 26 and will last until August 11 next year.

A source close to the organizing committee said that for the past two years the question of how to connect the two iconic sites is being worked out. For technical reasons, the torch cannot be placed on top of the tower, as it would pose a threat to the antennas located there.

Therefore, now we are coordinating the place of construction, in which the flame would look spectacular and would be safe for the structure.
