French swimming star Léon Marchand secures place at Paris Olympics

In this week’s edition of Destination Paris, we focus on French star Léon Marchand, who dominated the French swimming trials to secure his place at the Paris Olympics. We also look at preparations for the opening ceremony on the River Seine. Plus, we bring you an excerpt from an exclusive FRANCE 24 interview with Olympic icon Tommie Smith. He reflects on the historic moment when he and his teammate John Carlos raised their fists on the podium in Mexico at the 1968 Olympics to denounce racism in the United States.
