LA 2024 Promises To Embrace French Language If Awarded The Games

The message could be seen as an awkward nod to the American bid's rival in the race, Paris.

The decline of French in the Olympic Movement has caused much angst among countries where it is the first language. This is an opportunity for 274 million people across five continents to celebrate the language we share and the diversity of cultures evolving within the Francophone world.

In February the Paris 2024 bid committee was widely criticized across France and in social media for unveiling it's tagline "Made For Sharing" in English - and projected across the Eiffel Tower.

In addition to implementing Olympic Charter Rule 23 to use both French and English in announcements and signage at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Los Angeles 2024 guaranteed that French-speaking volunteers will be available to assist athletes and other attendees during the Games.

She claimed it made her "angry".

On this festive day, discover or learn more about the French language and francophone culture through contests, performances and festivals.

"On behalf of the Government of Canada, I extend my best wishes to everyone around the world celebrating the International Day of La Francophonie".

"With Los Angeles' deep ties to every corner of the Francophone world, every French-speaking athlete and fan will have a home field advantage at the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in the City of Angels".

LA and Paris are competing to host the 2024 Olympic games.
