The Paris 2024 Organizing Committee has unveiled the podiums for the Olympic and Paralympic winners’ ceremonies this year, from July 26 to August 11 and from August 28 to September 8.

Tony Estanguet, president of Paris 2024 and three-time Olympic champion, along with Alexis Hanquinquant, Paralympic champion in Paratriathlon, have gathered with sponsors at Pulse, the Paris 2024 headquarters, around this iconic object for athletes worldwide. There, they were able to see the materials and how the Paris 2024 podium was made, with French wood and 100% recycled plastic.

Since 1932 at the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid and in Los Angeles, the podium has been a significant part of the victory ceremony. “For an athlete, stepping onto the podium is a moment of pride and emotion; you hang the medal around your neck and in an instant, the dream comes true,” says Tony Estanguet.

The podiums will be gray, in homage to the rooftops of Paris. They will be used in the 329 medal ceremonies of the Olympic Games and the 549 of the Paralympic Games. With the creation of these podiums, there was a desire to create continuity between the medal and the podium, two symbols of achievement that define the identity of the games and the pride of the host country. “The podiums follow the journey of the medal, with a piece of the Eiffel Tower inside, inspired by the lines and curves based on Eiffel’s work,” added Estanguet.
