Let the countdown to the Games begin!

The Paris Olympics is just 100 days away, with competitions scheduled to begin on July 24 and the festivities slated to officially commence with the Opening Ceremony on July 26.

That will launch a two-week global competition featuring dozens of sports, hundreds of countries and thousands of athletes, with live coverage on NBC and Peacock.

The action begins with men's rugby and men's soccer matches on the morning of July 24. The final medals will be awarded on Day 16 of the Games, which falls on Aug. 11. That, of course, will be followed by the Closing Ceremony.

To kick off the 100-day countdown, NBC asked Team USA athletes to guess the Olympic sport that a professional mime was performing. 

Check out the video above and see if you can guess what sport the mime is acting out before the Olympians do.
