Two days later, the opening ceremony will take place starting from 1:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CET on July 26.

Olympic 2024 list of torchbearers

While the official person to light the Olympic torch or the final torchbearer remains unknown, this year, there will be about 11,000 torchbearers. Notably, the organizers selected these torchbearers from an initial pool of over 100,000 people. The list features public figures as well as other less well-known people.

The organizers narrowed down the pool of torchbearers based on commitment, dedication, and their embodiment of at least one of three core tenets of Paris 2024. The first tenet includes people who are athletes, volunteers, or working professionals from various sports associations. Meanwhile, the second involves people who run businesses, or are standout innovators and creators across French communities. Lastly, the third tenant includes people who work each day to improve society. Given below are five of the torchbearers listed by the Olympics:

  • Michela Rubegni
  • Nicolas Wallon
  • Genevieve Petey
  • Margot Boucher
  • Christian Cabantous
