NEWSポストセブン|五輪開催地投票 “日仏密約”によりフランスは東京支持も

「前回の1924年大会以来、100年ぶりの開催を目指すパリは2024年の五輪開催に名乗りを上げている。しかし2020年がマドリード開催なら欧州の連続開催になってしまい、反対論が起きる可能性が高い。そこで今回は東京に恩を売り、代わりに2024年の開催に協力するという“日仏密約”があるといわれています」(JOC関係者) 敵の敵は味方──という構図だが、フランスは“並の味方”ではない。近代五輪の父・クーベルタン男爵の母国で、3人のIOC委員を擁する「五輪大国」。そして旧宗主国として中東・アフリカ諸国の委員にも影響力を持つといわれ、決選投票の帰趨を決め得る立場にもなると見られている。その“フレンチ・コネクション”を日本側も当初から期待していたようだ。
