We are a week away from the opening ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The KING 5 crew heads out on Saturday for more than three weeks of coverage.

There are 40 athletes with local ties we will be keeping an eye on.

The Olympic torch arrived in London on Friday after a 62-day, 8,000 mile trek around the United Kingdom.

Thousands of fans turned out on the banks of the Thames to watch the flame arrive by helicopter.

London's Olympics are expected to cost at least $14-billion.
