- CBC Olympics Coverage - Thanks to being in Seattle and being able to get Canadian TV, I got to watch the opening ceremonies live this morning and am watching live events as I write this while the rest of the U.S. is only getting to see the opening ceremonies right now. They have live video on their web-site too, but it is seemingly blocked in the U.S.
- Doubling her efforts - I'd love to see Shalane Flanagan medal, but it is probably a long shot. The 10000m is probably the best chance.
- China's Liu ramps up training to defend hurdles title - Let's hope he is healthy and it is a great race with Robles.
- Kenya: 800 Metres Sensation Pamela Jelimo Speaks of Possible World Record - It would be awesome to see, but many folks would question if she is clean.
- Hold on to your medals ... The Dash is checking in from Beijing - An interesting list of 40 people to watch at the Olympics
- How the IAAF uncovered Russia's doping cheats - More details than I probably wanted to know, but clearly countries with strict visa controls have a way to tip athletes off that the testers are coming.
