The Paris Olympics schedule has been released, and the probability of China winning the first gold has greatly increased

  On April 1, local time, the International Olympic Committee officially approved the competition items and schedule of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

After the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games on July 26, 2024, the competition will be fully launched on the 27th, and the first gold will be born on the same day.

According to the schedule, the first gold medal of the Paris Olympics is not basically focused on shooting like the previous Olympic Games, but the first gold medal in diving and shooting will be produced almost at the same time.

In this way, the Chinese delegation is expected to continue the good tradition of winning the first gold medal of the Summer Olympics many times before, and it is hoped that it will win the first gold medal of the Olympic Games in a row for the first time.

  The Paris Olympics has set up a total of 32 major events and 329 small events. All gold medals will be decided between July 27 and August 11.

According to the schedule, the first gold medal of the Olympic Games will be born on July 27, most likely in the shooting and diving events.

Compared with 339 events in 33 major events in the Tokyo Olympics, the Paris Olympics have further completed the "slimming".

The new karate event during the Tokyo Olympics will temporarily leave the Olympic family and be replaced by breakdance, which will be the first breakdance event in the history of the Olympic Games.

In addition, the small adjustment of some projects is not good news for the Chinese team.

For example, weightlifting, China's traditional dominant event, has been reduced from 14 events at the Tokyo Olympics to 10.

In addition, the men's and women's mixed team race walking relay replaced the men's 50-kilometer race walk.

  Because the Tokyo Olympics is postponed by one year, the Paris Olympics cycle is only three years away. For all athletes, opportunities and challenges coexist.

Veteran athletes only need to stick to it for three more years to have the opportunity to compete in the Olympic Games again, while young players need to grow rapidly to meet the test of the Olympic Games.

  In the history of the Summer Olympics, the "first gold" once became a topic that was widely discussed and concerned.

The Chinese sports delegation has won four first gold medals in the history of participating in the Summer Olympics. Because of the project setting, these four first gold medals all came from shooting events. One of them was Xu Haifeng who won the first Olympic Games in history for China. gold medal.

Since 2004, the Chinese shooting team has continued the glorious tradition of winning the first Olympic gold for the Chinese delegation every other session. Du Li is the Athens Olympic Games; Yi Siling is the London Olympic Games in 2012; Young Yang Qian lived up to expectations and won the jackpot for the Chinese delegation.

In the Paris Olympics, because the first diving final event was arranged on the day of the first gold medal in the Olympic Games, the probability of the Chinese delegation winning the first gold medal has greatly increased.

  According to the schedule, although the Paris Olympics will be decided on the first official competition day after the opening, road cycling (men's and women's time trials), judo, fencing, shooting (pistol, rifle), swimming, rugby sevens, diving and skateboarding will be decided. Part of the gold medals in the 8 major events, and the first gold will be produced in the shooting and diving events to a large extent. The time is about 6:00 p.m. Beijing time on July 27, which is near noon local time in Paris.

Unlike shooting events in China, where only some events have an advantage and the competition process will change rapidly and contingency is very different, whether it is single or double diving, the Chinese diving "dream team" is the absolute king, and the double event that starts first wins the gold. greater grasp.

In this case, the Chinese delegation is expected to achieve the feat of winning the gold medal in two consecutive Olympic Games for the first time.

Of course, this depends on the specific progress of the diving and shooting events of the day.
