In a surprising development, Brigitte Henriques, the president of the French Olympic Committee (CNOSF), has tendered her resignation just over a year before the highly anticipated Paris 2024 Summer Games. The CNOSF confirmed this news on Thursday, shortly after the opening of their general assembly at the Maison du Sport Français. The CNOSF released a statement acknowledging Henriques’ decision to step down from her role as the president of the French National Olympic and Sports Committee.

While the exact reasons behind her resignation remain undisclosed, it has sent shockwaves through the sporting community as preparations for the Paris 2024 Olympics continue.
