Paris, Amsterdam et Los Angeles : quels héritages olympiques pour le sport français d’entre-deux-guerres ?

Abstract : Despite a growing interest in literature, the topic of olympic legacy lacks historical approaches (Viersac & Attali, 2021). This work aims to understand the effects of three consecutive Olympic Games (1924, 1928, 1932) over three aspects of the french sport : political, educational and practical. The study shows that the Games have sparked the sport policy by legitimazing its need as a consequence of low scores. However, they had an adverse effect on the educational conception of sport insofar as they deviated from social expectations. This has affected the emerging practices, such as decathlon or « complete » sport certificates, by keeping them away from the olympic sport model. Nevertheless, the Games have helped reaching new populations, as we focus on the Algerian champions and the elder sportmen. Thus, the legacy is at the crossroads of the Games effects, social issues and cultural traditions, which leads to valuable conflicts as much as unexpected effects and innovative forms of pratices.
