Paris, France - January 17, 2024 - With less than 200 days to go until the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF), the French Paralympic and Sports Committee (CPSF), and Paris 2024 came together on January 16th to reveal the official outfits for the French Olympic and Paralympic teams. The outfits, designed by the renowned Le Coq Sportif, are set to make a statement and showcase French athletes in style and comfort as they compete on the world stage.
The collection, meticulously crafted over several years, is an ode to the journey of athletes and the values of sports. It includes a range of outfits tailored for various occasions during the Games:
Representation Outfits: These outfits will be worn by athletes on podiums, in the athlete village, during closing ceremonies, official visits, media appearances, and at celebration sites. The design features a sinuous gradient line, symbolizing the challenging path to victory. The outfits are made from ecru fleece, providing comfort and sustainability through innovative production techniques.
Training Outfits: Designed to accompany athletes during their preparation for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, these outfits capture the emotions and intensity of sports. The design combines repetitive curved lines representing effort and muscle vibrations with straight lines symbolizing direction. The outfits are made from synthetic materials to optimize breathability and elasticity.
Competition Outfits: When athletes take the center stage to perform and represent their country, these outfits come to life. The collection includes unique designs tailored to more than 60 Olympic and Paralympic disciplines, ensuring that athletes shine in their respective sports. Over 200 product tests were conducted to create the most suitable outfits for athletes from 30 Federations.
Podium Outfits: After the competition, athletes don the podium outfits, showcasing elegance and purity. The outfits feature a subtle shine and proudly display the French flag behind the athletes during celebratory moments.
Le Coq Sportif has gone the extra mile to ensure responsible production practices, with an emphasis on local sourcing and sustainability. The outfits are manufactured in Romilly-sur-Seine, a town at the heart of the French textile basin, renowned for its knitting expertise. This commitment not only guarantees the comfort and quality of the products but also reduces environmental impact.
Mr. Stéphane Ashpool, the creative mind behind this remarkable collection, stated, "We have designed these outfits as a tribute to the incredible journey and dedication of our athletes. They represent the spirit of competition, determination, and the pursuit of excellence that characterizes the Olympic and Paralympic Games."
Le Coq Sportif's dedication to quality, sustainability, and local craftsmanship has resulted in a collection that embodies the essence of the Games and reflects the values of sportsmanship.
These outfits are now available to the public and can be found in Le Coq Sportif boutiques, their online store (eshop), partner retailers, and official Paris 2024 stores.
