Icelandic singer Bjork will open the OLYMPIC GAMES in Athens on Friday (13AUG04).

The eccentric star will perform before 70,000 spectators at the Greek capital's new Olympic Stadium and a worldwide TV audience of four billion at the four hour opening ceremony.

The centre of the stadium will be turned into a lake for the event, which will also feature important symbols of Greek mythology, including a giant Trojan horse, a statue of the goddess Athena and a centaur shooting an arrow.

Bjork will join a spectacular collection of 'A' list stars at the event, including NAOMI CAMPBELL - who will carry the Olympic torch on one of its last legs - Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson, Britney Spears and DAVID and VICTORIA BECKHAM, who are all attending the sporting event.
