The eyes of the world will be on London on 27 July for the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games, which is expected to have a global TV audience of more than a billion people.

Award-winning film directors Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, The Beach and Slumdog Millionaire) and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) will oversee what is sure to be the UK's biggest-ever live show.

British Countryside Comes to the Olympic Stadium

The Olympic Stadium will be transformed into a British countryside scene for the Opening Ceremony.

The set – one of the largest ever built – will feature meadows, fields and rivers, families eating picnics, sports being played on the village green and real farmyard animals, including 70 sheep.

Titled "Isle of Wonder", the event will open with the ringing of the largest harmonically tuned bell in the world.
Olympic Ceremony Athletes' Parade

Don't miss the chance to see your favourite athletes in the Olympic Ceremony Athletes' Parade.

The Olympic Opening Ceremony parade will feature 10,000 athletes from 205 nations.

Each country has its moment of glory however many (or few) athletes it has competing. Cheer on your country's entrants as they take a lap of the Olympic Stadium's running track proudly holding aloft their national flag.

The African nation of Mauritius is scheduled to send athletes to compete in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, United Kingdom from July 27 – August 12, 2012.

Best sports

Boxing is the only sport in which Mauritius has won a medal.

Star performers

Bruno Julie, the boxer, is undoubtedly Mauritius' biggest success story. He became the first athlete to win a medal in his county's history when he seized bronze in Beijing.
