Today, 24 potential Team USA hopefuls from a variety of sports rode into New York City on a double-decker bus in honor of the 100-day celebration.
It doesn’t seem like that long ago when the finishing touches were being put on Beijing’s Olympic Park in 2008. Now, officials in London are working to finish up preparations to welcome the 15,000 athletes from more than 200 countries, along with millions of visitors, who will enter the city for the Games.
In honor of today’s celebration, here’s an Inside look at what some of the world’s top athletes and organizations are tweeting about the countdown:
