Olympic opening rehearsal on fast-flowing Seine set for 16 July

The postponed rehearsal for the Paris Olympics opening ceremony on the River Seine has been rescheduled for 16 July, France's Ministry of Sport and the Olympic Games said on Friday. When Paris 2024 begins with a waterborne parade down the river on 26 July, it will be the first Olympics in history to take the opening ceremony out of its traditional setting of the main stadium.
