Quand Macron joue au tennis-fauteuil pour défendre Paris 2024

26 Juin, 2017, 01:21 | Author: Loic Jullien

Coup de com' ou simple curiosité... Le Président français était invité à participer à la Journée Olympique mondiale, organisée à Paris aux couleurs de la candidature aux JO 2024.

C'est sous le soleil de la capitale qu'Emmanuel Macron a fait son apparition samedi en fin de journée sous le Pont Alexandre III.

Sa partie de tennis s'est jouée en mode handisport, en fauteuil roulant et aux côtés de plusieurs joueurs célèbres tels que Lucas Pouille et Michaël Jeremiasz, avant qui n'enfile des gants de boxe. "Sur les réseaux sociaux, les réactions fusent".

Après un bain de foule et de nombreux selfie, le président s'est ensuite rendu sur une plateforme flottante sur la Seine pour un petit entrainement de boxe. Le jeune président s'est toutefois montré moins offensif dans cette discipline.

"Il y a ce formidable esprit universel dans l'olympisme (.) mais quand je participe, je préfère toujours gagner".

A la question: "Qu'est-ce que les JO 2024 apporteraient à Paris et à la France?"

Macron se rendra notamment à Lausanne le 11 juillet pour la réunion de la centaine de membres du Comité international olympique.

"Paris 2024 est un projet porté par tout le pays". Durant cette session extraordinaire doit notamment être adopté le principe d'un double vote en septembre pour l'attribution des JO-2024 et 2028, alors que Paris et Los Angeles sont sur les rangs. "Il est important d'envoyer le signal que le chef de l'Etat est aussi au rendez-vous, parce que la population française est au rendez-vous", a déclaré Emmanuel Macron, estimant que la "force de la candidature de Paris 2024, c'est la France, ce sont les athlètes qui sont tous mobilisés, c'est la mobilisation des territoires, et c'est l'ensemble des services de l'Etat".

"C'est la France, et tout ce qu'elle charrie de fierté, de gloire dans le monde". "De la fierté et de l'optimisme, répond le président. La vie d'un pays c'est de la psychologie et une envie d'aller de l'avant".
