Only few hours are left until the official opening of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The organizers pledge to make the XXX jubilee Olympic Games special. It’s the third time the British capital hosts the competition – the first was back in 1908 and then Olympic flame was carried throughout its streets 40 years later.
More than 10,000 athletes from 205 countries will compete for the Olympic champion’s title. The 2012 Summer Olympic program features 26 sports.
Russian official delegation will be headed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Tennis star Maria Sharapova, who’ve recently won the fourth of her Grand Slam singles titles, will be the Russian flag-bearer.
The country's team is represented by 436 sportsmen. The Russia.Park was set up to follow the achievements of the athletes during the Games. On the eve of the Olympics' opening top Russian officials have also launched Sochi.Park in London's Kensington Gardens, expressing hope that the culture center, which features a cinema and ice rink, will deliver the magic of the Caucasus – the venue of the Sochi 2014 winter games – to the current Olympic capital.
Spectacular show worth $42 million will be staged at the opening ceremony.
