The flagship sporting event of the decade and of 2024 for the French, the Paris Olympic Games are fast approaching! While you're waiting for the competition, brush up on your knowledge of the sports on the program and discover some of the lesser-known ones!

32, that's the number of Olympic sports you'll be able to watch at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, on TV or on site, thanks to one of the millions of tickets on sale. While everyone is familiar with the rules of soccer, rugby and tennis, thanks to the many high-profile competitions that take place every year, other sports don't enjoy the same understanding from the general public. If you're selected at random in the second phase, this is your chance to choose a discipline that's a little less coveted but just as interesting, and why not discover a new passion!
