Highlights include the opening and closing ceremonies on 27th July and 12th August respectively, the 3rd August when the athletics begin including the big one, the men’s 100 metres final on 5th August.
In a country where football (soccer) is almost a religion there will be, for the first time ever, a British football team participating in competition. According to the Olympic schedule this starts on 26th July 2011 and you can expect stadiums to be full.
The first swimming medals will be won on Saturday 28th July and there is a lip smacking possibility of two of the greatest swimmers of all time competing against each other in the 200m freestyle.
Australian Graham Thorpe recently announced his comeback and the golden man, Michael Phelps, with 14 Olympic golds to his name is pretty much guaranteed to make the cut.

Sunday 12th August sees the basketball final, will the American ‘dream team’ be able to defend their Olympic title?
