America's First Lady Michelle Obama will be at the opening ceremony along with 80,000 other people.
Cyclist Daniel Weston from Barnstaple will be there as part of the Great Britain team, and is one of the favourites for a medal.
His coach Will Newton, has high hopes for the 22-year-old.
Before Daniel got on a bike at the age of six his severe autism led to behavioural problems that would prevent him from living any form of independent life when older.
He now works part-time at the Barnstaple Hotel and his parents believe it's cycling and swimming with other people that has transformed his life. He's even met the Prime Minister and carried the Olympic torch in Ilfracombe two years ago alongside fellow North Devonian Jonathan Edwards.
Last month Daniel won three silver medals at the Special Olympics GB National Championships.
