London 2012 Olympics schedule unveiled
The schedule for the London 2012 Olympics has been officially announced.
Full details of the dates, times and prices for all 26 sports have been released, with the opening action set to be women’s football on 25 July. The men’s 100m final – arguably the Olympics’ showpiece event – is set for 5 August.
The opening ceremony is set to take place at the Olympics Stadium on 27 July at 7:30pm with the closing ceremony to be held at the same venue on 12 August. Tickets for all events go on sale on 15 March.
London 2012 chairman and double Olympic champion Sebastian Coe said: "This is a really big moment, a huge moment. In my own experience as a competitor this is the point that it suddenly becomes very real. I remember this point in the build-up to Los Angeles and suddenly realising I was going to be running seven races in nine days.”
