The Wimbledon’s men’s singles final featuring Andy Murray is forcing the upcoming Olympic games to take a back seat in London, at least for one weekend.

But Games organizers are not getting a lot of time to rest. LOCOG chairman Sebastian Coe delivered his invitation for Chinese citizens to come to London to enjoy the big event.

There are 19 days to go before the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, which will be officially known as the Games of the 30th Olympiad. The 2012 Paralympic Games will follow as soon as the Summer Olympics are finished. They will start in London on August 29th and will run until September 9th.
