The 2024 Paris Olympic Games are approaching steadily, and Judo Canada is already working hard to ensure everything is in place to exceed the country’s 2021 Tokyo Games haul of two bronze medals. The federation is therefore proud to announce that the Canadian Olympic judo team will be hosted by the city of Levallois, in the Île-de-France region, just prior to the start of the Games.
For the month preceding the Olympics, Canada’s judokas will train at the Magali-Baton dojo at the Éric-Srecki Gymnasium. Nicolas Gill, Chief Executive Officer and High Performance Director of Judo Canada, is pleased to have secured the perfectly located venue at the gateway to the City of Light.
“To ensure the best possible preparation for their teams, the world’s powerhouses are all looking for quality venues. Each country has its vision, and for us, proximity to the Olympic Village is a priority.”
