In an exclusive letter to “The Team”, the world champion Kylian Mbappé affirms that he will participate in the 2024 Olympics in his city. “It was while watching the London Olympics in 2012 that I realized the importance of this global competition. The Games are “THE” benchmark for sport, the absolute Grail that all sportsmen and women in the world want to compete in and experience at least once in their life. This is the time when you can give people the most pleasure, convey emotions and experience them in return. Being in the Olympic Village, giving, receiving, is a unique experience of its kind. I must have been 13, I was still very young, I remember the hours leading up to some competitions in London. I was impatient. Before each game of the American basketball super team, with LeBron (James), Kobe (Bryant). I wanted to see how Usain Bolt would take us to the track in athletics, 100m, 200m …. I followed a lot of other sports, of course football with Neymar’s Brazil who was beaten in final by Mexico (1-2), and Ney, disappointed, who said he wanted to win four years later in Rio, in his country. “Already, in 2020, for the Tokyo Games, I wanted to participate, it was an objective but they quickly pulled the rug out from under my feet … When you see what the teams of France have succeeded … ”That’s when I said to myself, I too want to be there. I want to experience the Paris Games. It’s a strong, inner feeling, as if I was destined to participate in this huge celebration in my city, in my country, a hundred years after the last competition in France. (Summer Games). It is a childhood dream that emerges. I dream of going to other sports that we don’t have time to see the rest of the year: judo, handball and men’s women’s basketball, 3×3 in basketball, volleyball, canoeing, even skateboarding! Already, in 2020, for the Tokyo Games, I wanted to participate, it was an objective but they quickly pulled the rug out from under my feet … When you see what the French teams have succeeded … We win in volleyball, in hand, we are a finalist in basketball against the United States. They went to look for gold and brought credit to France. I hope to experience that and do the same in 2024, with a team that would bring together the best players of the moment. These Games will be in France, they are those of the centenary in Paris. It’s not the biggest competition in football, but you have to play the Games in your career. It is something unheard of when you are in love with sports. »Read also All the news of the Olympic Games
