TOKYO — The Olympics are officially here. 

The Tokyo 2020 Summer Games start with the opening ceremony, which will air live in the U.S. on Friday (7 a.m. ET, NBC), one day shy of when it was originally scheduled to take place in 2020.  

About 950 spectators, mostly dignitaries — such as first lady Jill Biden — and journalists, will be at Olympic Stadium for the subdued festivities. The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee said more than 200 athletes, led by flag-bearers Sue Bird (women’s basketball) and Eddy Alvarez (baseball) are expected to march during the ceremony.
