Loads of stuff is happening to mark 100 days to the Olympics

In just 100 days time the London Olympic Games will officially begin.

The motto for the games has been revealed - "Inspire a Generation" - and events are being held to mark the countdown to the opening ceremony.

10,500 athletes, 21,000 media people and 8.8 million ticket-holders will be arriving in the capital for the biggest sporting event on the planet.

But despite all the excitement, there is still a lot to be done.

In Horse Guards Parade, home of the beach volleyball, 3,000 tonnes of sand need to be dumped and 15,000 temporary seats put up.

A further 200,000 temporary seats and 10,000 portable toilets need to be installed around the city.

Building work is also taking place in Greenwich Park, where the equestrian events will be taking place.
