As far as most people are concerned, the 2012 London Olympics officially begin on Friday with the highly-anticipated Opening Ceremony helmed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle. That some of the events have already taken place (including a thrilling comeback by the U.S. women’s soccer team) won’t detract from the “Isles Of Wonder”spectacle unfolding at the Olympic Stadium in London.

With its elaborate — and somewhat still secret — production, the 2012 Opening Ceremony will aim to produce moments as memorable as Muhammad Ali’s inspiring torch lighting in Atlanta and the breathtaking long-range, pyrotechnic archery of Barcelona.

Stay tuned for live updates, commentary, images and video from the real-time rendition of the spectacle in London all the way through the televised version that airs later on NBC in the United States. @HP
