The City of Light will shine especially bright this July when Paris hosts the 2024 Summer Olympics. With iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées serving as backdrops, athletes from around the world will converge to compete at the highest level of their respective sports.

There will be no shortage of attractions at these Summer Games, as the XXXIII Olympiad will feature a staggering 329 events in 32 sports, including breaking, which is set to become the first dancesport in modern Olympic history. Skateboarding and surfing will also return after making their debut four years earlier in 2020.

Although France will have athletes in every event, it's the US that enters as a prohibitive -2,500 favorite to win the most medals. America has, after all, led the way in each of the last seven Summer Games and continues to set the gold standard with its amateur athletic programs. China (+1,100) and Japan (+5,000) round out the Top 3 in what should be an entertaining – if perhaps lopsided – race to the top of the podium.  

The Olympics aren't the only must-see event in July. Sports fans can also look forward to Wimbledon, the MLB All-Star Game, UFC 304, and NBA Summer League action.
