In a period when amateur and professional sport was stopped following the spread of the coronavirus, where even the 2020 Olympic Games were postponed to the following year, the French sports movement (Ministry of Sports, CNOSF, CPSF, Paris 2024) offers a series of Facebook lives, in which internet users will be able to interact with French sport champions.

For the first live, broadcast this Thursday from 5 p.m., Martin Fourcade, five-time Olympic biathlon champion and president of the Paris 2024 Athletes Commission, will answer the participants’ questions in a moment led by another Olympic champion, the fencer Brice Guyart.

Athletes will distill tips on staying in shape from home and tell anecdotes about their careers.

The objective of the initiative is, according to the press release, to “federate and promote this positive dynamic around the digital initiative #BougezChezVous and thus create a link between the athletes and the French during this period of confinement”.

The hashtag #BougezChezVous encourages the population to practice sport from their home to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The “French, Olympic and Paralympic Sport Family” underlines that “despite the difficult situation they are facing, with the impossibility of continuing normal training and the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Games”, the French athletes were “the first” to send a “positive message of solidarity and mutual aid”.

The next meeting will be Monday 5 p.m. with Sarah Ourahmoune, Olympic vice champion at the Rio Games in 2016.
