The Olympic March Past refers to the walk that is taken by the participants of various disciplines from different countries during the opening ceremony. Greece usually leads the Olympic march past with the host country last.

The athletes from China will be the last to enter during the opening ceremonies. Olympic protocol dictates that the host country's athletes enter last at the opening ceremony.

In accordance with tradition, the host nation China was the last one to march into the stadium during the opening ceremony. If you mean excluding that, then the last one was the African nation of Zambia.

An Olympic Games cannot last more than 17 days. With the Opening Ceremony on a Friday, competition would take place until the 3rd Sunday after the Opening Ceremony.

In the opening ceremony, the athletes from the host country enter last. In the closing ceremony, the athletes enter en masse and there is no structure as to what country's athletes enter last.

The first country in the parade is always Greece. The last country is the host nation. In between, the countries march in alphabetical order according to the official language of the host nation.
