The 14th of April marked the 100 days to go countdown to the Opening Ceremony. As per our sources, the preparations for the Olympics opening ceremony have begun inside the New National Stadium.
Strict restrictions are imposed around the Olympic village and only little movement is allowed. Over the weekends, passersby could hear rumblings from inside the venue. This means the preparations have begun for the scheduled Olympics opening ceremony on 23rd July.
