Olympics 2012: Best and Worst Moments From Two Weeks in London (PHOTOS)


By most standards, the 2012 London Olympics were pretty epic for Team USA.

Between Missy Franklin's incredible run in the pool to gymnast Gabby Douglas' stunning performance in the Individual All-Around, stars were born, tears of joy were shed and history was made in just over two weeks of competition.

And we haven't even mentioned Michael Phelps yet.

Of course, not everyone left London with 22 career Olympic medals. In fact, for every good performance by the Red, White and Blue, there were just as many hiccups, misfires and, in the case of the men's gymnastics team, a whole lot of falls. (Seriously, what happened?!)

 

Which athletes will return to their respective countries with medals? And which athletes are going home, well, without medals?

    That is not Kayla Harrison. Pretty sure that's Kim Rhode.

    Despite Olympic committee of no positive testing, John Leonard accused the Chinese 16-year-old swimmer ‘suspicious’. Another US swimmer from nowhere did the same and no one accused her of doping. Guess which country is among those whose athletes have been tested positive? Not China. He represents the silly swimming coaches, but not me. The better human spirits are shown by the Muslim girl. I wonder what they wear in beach volleyball. Religion needs to adapt to the global culture to some extent. The amputated athlete won our hearts. He could be the only one who participates in two Olympics in the same year. The Malaysian diver just lifted the spirit of a nation, same as the one Hong Kong won a long while ago. These are the treasures and why we enjoy Olympics. ------- There are other 75 similar articles:http://ebtonypow.blogspot.com/2012/08/a-nation-of-no-losers.html
