The Olympic spirit blows on the Côte-d'Or

Labeled as a land of games, the Côte-d'Or will welcome the Olympic flame in 2024 on its way to Paris.

At the same time, eight preparation centers for the Games have been selected in the Côte-d'Or, three of which are supported by the Côte-d'Or Department.

On the way to the Games!

This time, it is well underway! The steering committee of the 2024 Olympic Games in Côte-d'Or, which associates the Departmental Council and the Departmental Olympic and Sports Committee (CDOS) was installed on November 30, 2022. It will organize events around the Olympics and also the passage of the flame.

The Olympic flame in Côte-d'Or

The passage of the Olympic flame planned a few days before the opening of the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Paris 2024, will stop in Côte-d'Or!

In the spring of 2023, the detailed route of the torch relay, with the different stopover cities and their program of activities will be unveiled. In Côte-d'Or, the flame should pass through the most emblematic places of the department, from a historical, patrimonial, cultural or natural point of view.


"This relay will be an opportunity to thank and honor all the volunteers whose commitment is exemplary, but also our athletes, whether they are amateurs or professionals. whose commitment is exemplary, but also our athletes, whether they are amateurs or professionals to give our young people the desire to get involved in a sport and to carry together the values of Olympism, the surpassing of oneself, the taste of effort, work and effort, work and team spirit.

The preparation centers for the Côte-d'Or Olympics

The Olympic Games in the Côte-d'Or also means eight preparation centers for the Games, three of which are supported by the Côte-d'Or Department:

  • Semur-en-Auxois for cycling,
  • Beaune for the triathlon,
  • Dijon for shooting sports.

All of them will welcome international delegations to train before the big day.

"It is a great opportunity to have a preparation center in Semur-en-Auxois. It proves the capacity of our region to host a rear base. The reception of foreign delegations will make people dream, give them desires and arouse vocations.
Benoît Perrin
President of the Côte-d'Or Cycling Committee (FFC)
"It is an opportunity to make shooting sports better known and to show how much this sport brings values and qualities: control of stress and emotions, respect for others.

The athletes of the Côte d'Or say...

"These will be my third Olympic Games, but they will be at home, in France! I see them as an apotheosis in my sporting career. Especially since my objective is clear: gold!

"The Olympic Games are the biggest multi-sport event in the world, the Holy Grail for all athletes! My wish is that the Olympic days planned in the Côte-d'Or will allow us to promote sports, to make young people practice sports who are a little too focused on their screens!

Celebrating sport in the Côte-d'Or

In 2023, the Côte d'Oriens will be able to take part in this huge sports festival with the organization of public events, such as the Olympics open to young people.

"The rise in power towards 2024 will be achieved by organizing major events that will mobilize the entire population of the Côte d'Or.
