It’s the final countdown to the start of this year’s Olympics. The iconic Olympic Torch arrived in Rio De Janeiro today.
The flame traveled by boat and the torch arrived at the naval school this morning. It will pass through the city and end up at the Olympic Stadium at the end of the week for Friday’s opening ceremonies.
Team USA has announced that swimmer Michael Phelps will be the American flag bearer during those ceremonies.
You can catch all the action on WXXV NBC 25, starting with an Olympic preview special tomorrow night and opening ceremonies on Friday.
