The London 2012 Olympics official opening ceremony begins tomorrow! I personally am super excited for the summer games to begin, particuarly because I can't wait to watch and cheer on all of the Latino Olympians participating.

But with over 400 competitors involved, identifying all of them would probably be a little difficult--which is why we did it for you! Below, 12 Latino Olympians you should definitely look out for at the 2012 games and when you can see them compete! Happy watching!

12 amazing Latino Olympians!
