The Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony warmed us up for a great day of action, as Saturday kicks off a whole host of events that will be run during a 16-day period. With football and archery already taking birth in Rio, it is now over to the rest of the disciplines, including high-profile ones like hockey and tennis.
Those two sports are among India's best hopes for a medal, with the India hockey team doing really well of late to raise hopes of a podium place. Led by PR Sreejesh, India will begin their Olympic campaign with a match against Ireland in Pool B.
There are five other men's pool matches scheduled for the day â€“ Argentina vs Netherlands, Belgium vs Great Britain, Australia vs New Zealand, Canada vs Germany and Spain vs Brazil â€“ while the women's section will play two matches â€“ Argentina vs USA and Great Britain vs Australia.
Every single one of those matches should be interesting, but the focus for the majority of the people in the subcontinent will be on the India vs Ireland match.
Indian interest in tennis comes via Rohan Bopanna and Leander Paes, the doubles duo who seemingly do not get on really well with each other, but have been thrown together, because, on paper, they make the best team.
Paes has already grabbed the headlines, after news broke out that he has not been allotted a room in the Games Village. While that particular problem has reportedly been sorted, the fact that the veteran, in his seventh Olympics, only landed in Rio a couple of days before the match, does not help matters.
Hopefully, they will be able to put their problems behind them and fight their way past the Poland pair of Lukasz Kubot and Marcin Matkowski.
Sania Mirza, and her partner Prarthan Thombare, open their women's doubles campaign against the Chinese pair of Peng Shuai and Zhang Shuai.
Novak Djokovic will also be in action on Saturday, in the men's doubles for Serbia, where he is partnering with Nenad Zimonjic. Djokovic and Zimonjic play the Croatian pair of Marin Cilic and Marin Draganja.
Apart from tennis and hockey, there is a lot going on, on Sunday with shooting, rowing, water polo, fencing, table tennis, volleyball, handball, cycling, equestrian, beach volleyball and judo all making their Rio Olympics 2016 bow.
Two Indians will be on show in the 10m Air Rifle women's qualification, and finals, if they progress, with Apurvi Chandela and Ayonika Paul looking to impress. The 10m Air Rifle men's competition will also take place, with Gurpreet Singh and Jitu Rai looking to clinch a medal for India.
