More than 10,000 athletes will converge on ‘The City of Light’ this summer vying for one of the most coveted prizes in all of competitive sports — an Olympic medal.

The opening ceremony, which will take place on the Seine River on the last Friday of July, will feature boats representing the national delegations, traveling from east to west and winding through the heart of Paris, where the athletes will compete over the next 16 days.

Over 40,000 volunteers will be on hand to assist the athletes and over 20,000 journalists will also be accredited. 35 venues will host the 329 events, which will generate 350,000 hours worth of television broadcasts. Millions of spectators around the world will be watching the events live in Paris, while millions more will view them from their mobile devices and homes.
