|Missy Franklin celebrating her|
gold medal win
The 2012 London Olympics rolled on it despite some wins, it was a Day of Disappointment as Ryan Lochte apparently was cursed since his beat Michael Phelps in the 400m Individual Medley because he gave up a big lead in the relay and yesterday came in fourth place in the 200m Freestyle….I don’t know about you, but something smells fishy about that and another huge Olympic let down was the men’s gymnastics team finishing fifth after a promising first place qualification finish. But there was reason to celebrate as 17 year old Missy Franklin from Aurora, CO, struck gold in the Women’s 100m Backstroke and Matt Grevers set an Olympic sized record by rallying to a win to capture gold in the Men’s 100 Backstroke and fellow American Nick Thoman brings home silver, while Michael Phelps qualified to defend his title in the 200m Butterfly and Missy Franklin qualified in the 200m Freestyle. Coming out of the pool just for a moment to a sandy surface, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh captured their 16th consecutive Olympic victory in beach volleyball to improve 2-0 and Maggie Stephens scored 7 goals as the women’s polo team got past Hungary 14-13 and for a smaller, dryer ball, Venus and her sister Serena continue their march to gold by advancing and Andy Roddick and John Isner also advanced. The ladies of the basketball court showed no mercy against Angola and ran all over them 90-38…..yes, you heard correctly……NINE ZERO – THREE EIGHT as Candace Parker notched her second double-double of the tournament finishing with 14 points and 12 rebounds.
For your 2012 London Olympic news, U.S. women's soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo didn't back down Monday from her Twitter outburst against NBC analyst Brandi Chastain, saying the tweets were her way of expressing her opinion about the quality of television announcers, FIFA has imposed a two-match ban on Colombia player Lady Andrade after U.S. forward Abby Wambach said she was "sucker-punched" by her opponent in an Olympic soccer match, Swiss soccer player Michel Morganella, was expelled from the Olympics on Monday for his threatening and racist message on Twitter about South Koreans after losing the match….think twice before you hit send. London Olympic organizers say former Beatle Paul McCartney and other star performers who took part in Friday's opening ceremony essentially donated their time and basically receiving a mere pound for a $1.57, for their performances, A security guard at the Olympics is under investigation for allegedly insulting a soldier as they worked together at a Games venue as the investigation continues, and finally, Australian boxer Damien Hooper, who wore a T-shirt emblazoned with an Aboriginal flag at the arena has been warned by team officials for violating a policy barring athletes from making political statements.
