Para Triathlon

The Pont d’Iéna at the foot of the Eiffel Tower will offer the perfect vantage point for watching road cycling, athletics (marathon and 20 km race walk) and swimming (10 km marathon) events, as well as the Olympic and Paralympic triathlon events. The venue will be at the heart of an area buzzing with Games excitement and home to competition venues such as the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower stadium and the Champs-de- Mars arena, as well as the Trocadéro Live Site. The Pont d’Iéna will be fully equipped for the occasion with temporary structures, hosting spectators in the best possible conditions and offering athletes a unique experience.

Built between 1808 and 1814 by engineer Lamandé, the Pont d’Iéna, which is 155 m long and 35 m wide, is one of the 37 bridges spanning the Seine. It was the first bridge
to be built following Napoleon’s victory in Jena (known as “Iéna” in French) in 1806. The bridge has five arches – each with an arc length of 28 m – and four intermediate piers. It links quai Branly, Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower on the left bank to the Trocadéro Gardens on the right bank.
