Olympics Feat. Nathan Adrian, Allison Schmitt & Total Medal Count & More: 8/2, Vol. 199, 1st Edition

Flow to you…let the river of my worship flow to you.  Lord I pray in all I do, let the river of my worship flow to you!  Good morning and welcome back to Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio better than when you it yesterday, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Here We Go!

The ladies golden celebration
in the Women’s 4x200 Freestyle
The 2012 Olympics rolled on as the United States experienced a great day in the world of swimming as Nathan Adrian got the best of favorite James ‘The Missile’ Magussen of Australia by one-hundredth of a second, the slightest margin possible to win the Men’s 100m Freestyle and Rebecca Soni set a new world record during the qualifying semifinals of the 200m Breaststroke with a time of 2 minutes and 20 seconds and basically chipped off 12 seconds off the previous mark.  Allison Schmitt was back on the medal stand as she anchored the final leg in the Women’s 4x200 Freestyle to win gold along with Missy Franklin, Dana Vollmer and Shannon Vreeland.
It was a tough night for the men in gymnastics, but Danell Leyva managed to make it through and earn a bronze medal for his efforts and Kristin Armstrong was strong enough to earn a gold medal in Women’s Individual Time Trial and as Serena Williams advanced to reach the quarterfinals in tennis, her sister Venus was ousted in single competition.  But the ladies in basketball continued their dominance as they walloped Turkey 89-58 with 18 points from Angel McCoughtry.
So as more medals were won during another day of competition, China is now in the lead with a total of 30 medals comprising of 17 gold, 9 silver and 4 bronze and the United States is one behind in China with 29 total medals consisting of 12 gold, 8 silver and 9 bronze while Japan is third with 17 total medals.
For your 2012 London Olympic News, Larisa Latynina, the gymnast who competed for the Soviet Union in the 1956, 1960 and 1964 Olympics, whose career record for most Olympic medals was broken by Michael Phelps says she doesn't mind that the American swimmer has surpassed her mark, well I guess she really doesn’t have a choice now does she?  Nonetheless comma I digress as Harrison Dillard, who is 89, the oldest 100-meter Olympic champion was back in London for the games, only this time as a celebrated athlete, not a scrawny kid from Cleveland who botched the hurdles only to win the gold in 1948, a double-decker bus carrying journalists at the London Olympics hit and killed a bicyclist Wednesday night, Lauren Jackson became the all-time leading scorer in Olympic women's basketball history with 18 points in Australia's 67-61 victory over Brazil on Wednesday to overtake Lisa Leslie for the honor, and finally, eight badminton players at the London Olympics were kicked out of competition Wednesday for trying to lose purpose to secure a more favorable position in the next phase of the event, a display that drew outrage from fans and organizers who said the women had violated the most sacred stage in sports.  You don’t go to the Olympics to try to lose….seriously.  Come on man or should I say come on woman!
