IN NUMBERS – If France is aiming for fifth place in the ranking of nations for Paris 2024, such success is also based on a certain number of data. Here are the most striking.

1,6. This is the multiplier coefficient targeted by the Minister of Sports due to the “Home Games” effect. Since 2000, this has always been between 1.5 and 2.3 (for Brazil in 2016).

15. The record for Olympic titles won during the Atlanta Games in 1996, which the French team wants to surpass in 2024 (and without taking into account the 1900 Olympic Games).

17. The number of Regional Performance Houses throughout France, for a total budget of 5 million euros per year.

18. The number of French sportsmen and women already qualified for Paris 2024. Among them we find two former standard bearers: Teddy Riner in 2016 and Clarisse Agbégnénou in 2021.

27. The very optimistic projection from the Nielsen-Gracenote company, a world reference in analysis and data, as to the number of Olympic titles that France will win in Paris, which would place it 3rd in the ranking of nations behind the untouchable Americans and Chinese.

43. The record for medals won during the Beijing Games in 2008 (again without taking into account the figure of 1900).

68%. The percentage, increasing, of the budget mobilized for direct support of high performance by the Ministry of Sports (from 67.85 million euros in 2016 to 114 million euros for 2024)

560-562. The planned number of French athletes participating in the Games. “We will never have had such an imposing French team for the Olympic Gamesrecalls David Lappartient, the president of the French National Olympic and Sports Committee. This is 45% more athletes than in Tokyo, which statistically gives us a greater chance of winning medals.

5.500-6.000. The number of high-level athletes identified by the National Sports Agency (ANS) across 69 federations. Among them, 311 are part of the “high performance circle”, that is to say those who have already finished, for example, on a world podium.

40.000. In euros, the minimum amount of annual income guaranteed to all athletes in the performance unit set up by the ANS (i.e. 591 for the Paris Games).

80.000. In euros, the amount of the bonus allocated to each gold medalist (compared to 65,000 euros in Tokyo). Please note that the technical support of the athlete will also share the same amount. A silver medal will bring in 40,000 euros and bronze 20,000 euros.

4,3 millions. In euros, the annual budget dedicated to the development of data, which has become an essential element of high-level sport.

4,5 millions. In euros, the budget allocated to the Maison de la Performance which will be located during the Games at the Marcel Cachin high school in Saint-Ouen.

20 millions. In euros, the amount dedicated to the “Very high performance sport” priority research plan initiated in December 2019.

300 millions. In euros, the additional financial resources in favor of high-level sport committed by the State.
