    Tammara Thibeault won gold! And Charlie Cavanagh won Silver (she looked good in the first 2 mins, but then was dominated the rest of the way). Cavanagh is still young and should develop. The other who competed (Scarlett Delgado and Priyanka Dhillon) lost to eventual medalists in their events.
     
    Thibeault and Delgado are guaranteed the Commonwealth Games, and at least two men will be named to the team, leaving two slots open. Cavanagh is not guaranteed a spot according to the qualification system, as events until April are looked at. Would be a travesty if she is not sent.

    So today I ran my first 5k in 36:47.
     
    It's nothing nothing to write home about, nevertheless it's a decent prep for a local B2Race next month for which I have entered.
     
    It's a team race, and there is no doubt that I will be one of the discard scores.  But hey, maybe I'll get to pick a medal for somebody else's work, in a true business style!

    TLDR: the ticket sales will be centralized and worldwide instead of country-by-country, starting in early 2023.
     
    I've already booked my trip with a tour operator- I'm hoping to go on similar dates as CCB above. My dream itinerary:
     
    Wednesday 24th- handball (I'd be flying in from Toronto Tuesday night and wouldn't have a room in Paris until Thursday)
    Thursday- non-sports activity (I was thinking the show at the Moulin Rouge- any suggestions welcome, though)
    Friday- opening ceremony on the Seine
    Saturday- tennis and boxing
    Sunday- beach volleyball and swimming
    Monday- diving, rugby and badminton
     
    Any advice for trip planning from people who have been to the Games and/or Paris would be appreciated.

    I have started planning a trip to Paris in 2024. Handball will start in Lille on Thursday 25 July, and I will drive there by car. After the matches I want to go to Paris by train. Friday 26 July I hope to see something of the opening ceremony. Then I stay for 3 days in Paris to watch sports.
     
    My programme will look like something like this:
     
    Saturday 27 July
    11.00-12.00 diving (synchron)
    14.30-18.30 time trial cycling
    21.00-00.00 beach volleybal - amazing with the Eiffel Tower view, really looking forward to it
     
    Sunday 28 July
    10.30-18.00 some field hockey matches (hopefully Netherlands)
    20.30-22.30 swimming finals (hopefully with some Dutch swimmers)
     
    Monday 29 July
    14.00-16.00 waterpolo women
    17.30-20.30 gymnastics team final men
     
    Unfortunately, it is still difficult to plan because of course little is known about the sessions and participation of Dutch athletes. It is also possible that I go other days, but this seemed like a nice program. Although I would also like to see judo, 3x3 basketball and athletics.
     
    Does anyone already knows about ticket sales and hotels?
