These original shots were taken by AFP photographers at past Olympic competitions and at events leading up to the next Games to be held in Paris in 2024.

Through AFP's unique perspective, a blend of expertise, creativity and innovation, the audience will be able to experience or relive the most memorable moments of these major sporting events.

Beyond the performances, this exhibition highlights the determination and courage that drive the athletes and allows the audience to imagine what the Paris Olympics will be like.

The exhibition celebrates diversity in sport, showcasing events for men, women, individuals and teams across the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The audience will see iconic images of the most popular events such as the 100m, fencing and swimming races, as well as lesser-known but equally impressive disciplines, such as table tennis and the long jump in the Paralympics.

The audience will also be able to admire some of the most iconic views of Paris, including famous monuments such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe decked out in Olympic colours in the run-up to 2024.
