Cullen Jones is a young man on the move and on a mission. He has a million dollar smile and now, a treasure trove of medals...
Jonathan Borlee spent only a short time as a member of the Florida State track & field program, opting to turn professional after earning All-American honors in 2009 for the Seminoles , when he won the NCAA Outdoor Championship in the 400-meter dash. Saturday at London's Olympic Stadium, Borlee and his twin brother Kevin - a two-year All-American for the 'Noles in the same event - thrust themselves into serious medal contention in the grueling sprint event.
The game revealed the half-dozen core players upon whom Krzyzewski will be relying over the final two rounds, when the pressure is high and the games could be tight. There were no surprises for the final 8:38 (which began with an 80-75 U.S. lead): James, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul were on the floor throughout, along with a two-man rotation that featured Kevin Durant, Deron Williams and Anthony (with Anthony remaining on the bench for the final 4:29).
Lauren Perdue, a swimmer from Greenville, N.C. and an Olympic rookie, won a gold medal in the 4x200 relay despite having back surgery in early March. She will return to the University of Virginia for her senior year once she gets back from London.
Chaunté Lowe is reported to be a new math teacher at Grayson High School for the 2012/2013 school year, but she will likely be missing the first few days of school. It is also possible she could begin her tenure at the school not just as a first time teacher, but as an Olympic medal winner.
Over a decade-long international career, Laura Georges has performed several functions for France. Prolific goalscorer has never been among them.
