Chantal Jouanno, the French Minister for Sports, has confirmed that she will be attending the international SportAccord Convention, to be held in London next week (3rd-8th April), with representatives of Annecy 2018.

She will attend the official presentation of the bid, followed by a press conference, on 7th April.

"I will be a part of the Annecy 2018 delegation which will promote the French bid at Sport Accord next week. As Minister for Sports, I will reaffirm the government's commitment and the support of all of France.

France has a strong track-record of hosting international sports events as well as being committed to the Olympic Movement and its ideals.

Sports do not just train athletes, they also train citizens. For our youth, the Games will be a tremendous and emotional time for sharing and dreaming."
