Britain’s Olympic athletes will let the train take the strain when they attend the Paris 2024 Olympics, as Eurostar has been named as the official travel partner of The British Olympic Association (BOA).

Eurostar has also committed to supporting ParalympicsGB with their travel plan to provide the most appropriately accessible transport options for athletes and will be confirming these arrangements shortly.

“We are all preparing to welcome our customers to these unforgettable moments in Paris in 2024. The Paris Games aim to be the greenest ever, we are therefore delighted to support British Olympians by offering them the most sustainable journey possible between London and Paris. We are all proud in the Eurostar Group to “take the team to victory”. Carrying the Olympic team on our trains encourages all of us to give our very best,” says Gwendoline Cazenave, CEO of Eurostar Group.

Eurostar was the official transport provider for French and Belgian athletes during the London 2012 Olympic Games and will continue to provide transport for the Belgian and Dutch Olympians and Paralympians to Paris this year too.

The carbon footprint of one flight is on average the same as 13 Eurostar journeys.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
