London 2012: Days 6 and 7

Posted by on 3 August 2012

It’s been an interesting couple of days at the Olympics.  At this point, the USA has taken the lead in the medal count. 

Today we watched Dalhausser/Rogers lose their beach volleyball match.  That puts them out of getting a medal for these Olympics.  It’s really a shame, but it happens. 

Our swimmers were HOT!!  Michael Phelps has a record number with one more to race to go.  That one will be a relay.  Our ladies are doing fantastic too.  I’m really enjoying the swimming this year.  I enjoyed what Phelps had to say about the young ones coming up.  Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was on hand to watch the events too!!

Gabby Douglas got the gold medal and 2 Soviet’s got the silver and bronze.  It was a tie with Ally of the US for the bronze, but in a tie breaker, the Soviet came out on top. 

Women’s volleyball is on a roll too.  Women’s water polo wins again too.  Track and Field had many of their opening events as well.  The US earned the silver medal in shot-put.  That’s one that I did as a young girl!!

Here’s the latest medal count…..
