We've done a few Olympic previews already: one yesterday and one about a week ago.
But with the Beijing Games mere hours away, I'd be remiss not to direct your attention to BBC Sport's Durosimi Thomas and his look at the African sides involved in the men's tournament.
General consensus favors a good showing by the African nations involved. Can they win the gold? I don't know. Thomas seems to think the young guns of the African continent will run out of luck this time around.
So there you have it. And with that, I promise to stop with the previews!!
Argentina and Brazil must be the favourites for Olympic Gold, with European under-21 champions Holland also holding a big chance.
But the African challenge is strong, and all three teams from the continent can be expected to progress beyond the group stage.
Ivory Coast are the dark horses of the tournament, and they may well get as far as the semi-finals, as could Nigeria.Nigeria beat Brazil in the semi-finals in 1996, before defeating Argentina in the final - a path that may have to be revisited if there is to be African gold again.
But what about the women, you ask? Glad you did ...
