This year, they’re held in London through the second week in Augus. 205 nations are expected to take part.
NCTV17 took to the streets to see what games or what athlete, local residents will be tuning in to see.
Kelly Aubone, of Naperville said,“Swimming and gymnastics, those are my favorite.”
“I’ve always enjoyed the floor routines, I think those are cool…the dances and stuff like that. And also the bars,” commented Ellie Wyant of Glen Ellyn.
“All the weird stuff because there are lots of stuff we didn’t expect, like Judo,” said Aaron Smith from Indiana.
Naperville Resident, Kyle Crement said,“I’ll probably be watching basketball and swimming, and then Anna Li the gymnast from Naperville.”
Naperville will try and catch a glimpse of one of their own, Anna Li, who is a part of the U.S. gymnastics team as an alternate.
