“We still have a year to go before the Olympic Games, everyone is working on this challenge and I am very confident that by the time of the Olympic Games it will be a huge success, which will benefit the whole population,” said said Bach after inaugurating sports facilities in Vitry-le-François in northeastern France.

“We must not forget that for a very long time swimming in the Seine was prohibited,” he continued.

“If with these Games, the Parisians return to the Seine, also for leisure and for swimming, it’s a huge project and I have good hopes that we will obtain a good result.


In recent weeks, the test events planned in the Seine could not take place due to an excess of E. coli bacteria in the water.

An open water swimming race was canceled, while a triathlon was turned into a duathlon involving only cycling and running.

A triathlon has never been made into a duathlon at the Olympics since the sport was added to the program in 2000.

Asked about such a possibility next year, the IOC President insisted: “During the Games, the Olympic program is triathlon! “.

The Parisian authorities announced at the end of August that a malfunction of a valve in the city’s sewerage network could be the cause of this pollution.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has promised Parisians could resume swimming at three sites on the Seine in 2025, just over 100 years after it was banned.
