The London 2012 Olympic Games are drawing near. Julio Jones Pink Jersey . To celebrate each
five-day mark, CTVOlympics.ca brings you up to speed on the biggest stories
unfolding in the countdown to London 2012. Weather or Not Concerns over the wet
British weather have been front and centre—especially after Great Britain
recorded its wettest June on record. “Its only a bit of British weather,” said
Charles Powell, a spokesman for the Met office, the national forecaster. “Its
naturally variable.” But London Olympic organizers say they are ready for
whatever Mother Nature brings.”The main thing is that we are used to it and we
have planned accordingly,” said Debbie Jevans, director of sport for the Olympic
Games. “It is something that is a fact of life. That is why our country is so
lovely and green.”  Plans have been drawn to make sure organizers and spectators
get the most up-to-date information possible. Weather forecasters will be
working around the clock, providing long- and short-range forecasts for the
event.   Getting into Rhythm Widely considered to be a long shot to make the
final at the London 2102 Olympic Games, the Canadian womens rhythmic gymnastics
team proved they have the ability to hang with some of the worlds best.  After
reaching the final of the World Cup on Sunday, the six-member team finished in
eighth spot, and were in contention for placement as high as fifth. “Our goal
going into the competition was to make one final and in that final to compete
with no major mistakes and we accomplished that,” said Alexandra Landry of
Toronto. “On day two we were much stronger and stuck all our elements with no
drops.” Other members of the team are Anjelika Reznik, Anastasiya Muntyanu, and
Rose Cossar, all of Toronto, Kelsey Titmarsh of Thornhill, Ont., and Katrina
Cameron of Mississauga, Ont. “With three weeks of training left until we step
into the Olympic village, were already feeling ready,” said Landry. Gotta be
Dreaming Count American President Barack Obama on the side of the Dream Team.
Obama disagreed with a recent statement made by Los Angeles Lakers and Team USA
guard Kobe Bryant that the 2012 team could beat the Dream Team from 1992. “This
is a generational thing,” Obama said during the halftime interview of Team USAs
exhibition win over Brazil on Monday. “I was around in 92, I was a Bulls fan, so
Ive got to go with the original Dream Team.” The Dream Team, which was formed 20
years ago and rolled to gold at Barcelona 1992, featured 11 players now in the
Hall of Fame.  “I suspect that Michael and Sir Charles (Barkley)  and others
would point out they were probably never down at any point in any of their
games,” Obama said. “But this is a great team, unbelievable talent.” The
president added: “You know, Kobes a competitor, so you expect him to do a little
trash talking whenever the opportunity arises.” Tony Gonzalez Jersey . 1 Rory McIlroy has set
his sights on ending his best-ever season on a high by finishing the year as
European No. Michael Turner Womens Jersey . The win on
grass a week ahead of Wimbledon was just Clijsters second since returning from a
three-month hip injury. She lost the opening set to Romina Oprandi on Sunday and
struggled in the second before taking control of that match. http://www.atlantafalconsroom.com/william-moore-jerseys
. Strasburg matched his career low by lasting only three innings, allowing five
runs Friday night in the Washington Nationals 9-7, 10-inning loss to the Miami
Marlins. John Abraham Jersey . – Up a man and tied,
the Montreal Impact had a chance to seize Saturday nights game against the
Colorado Rapids. Matt Bryant Red Jersey . Liverpool said
Monday that the 27-year-old Skrtel signed a “long-term contract.” The Slovakia
international has made 175 appearances for Liverpool since joining from Zenit
St.CLEVELAND—What appeared to be a stirring win turned into a crushing loss
for the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. The Reds scored the go-ahead run in
the top of the 10th on a wild pitch, but closer Aroldis Chapman gave up
Asdrubal Cabreras two-run homer with one out in the bottom of the inning that
sent Cincinnati to a 3-2 loss. “The game goes from jubilation to a downer on one
swing,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Thats a tough one to take.” Cabrera
drove a 3-1 pitch from Chapman (4-3) into the seats in right field. The second
homer allowed this season by the hard-throwing left-hander scored Shin-Soo Choo,
who had reached on a one-out single up the middle. Nick Hagadone (1-0) worked
one-third of an inning in Clevelands second straight win over the Reds after
being swept in three games last week in Cincinnati. The Reds had taken a 2-1
lead in the top of the 10th when Chris Heisey scored from third base with a
headfirst slide on a wild pitch by Hagadone. It was the third blown save by
Chapman in 11 chances. “Hes human,” Baker said. “What he was doing early in the
year was unhuman. Asdrubal Cabreras an all-star. He can hit. When they do catch
up with Chapmans ball, hes supplying most of the power. If they catch up to it
and centre it, sometimes thats going to happen.” Only five of Chapmans 11
pitches were strikes. “Youre down in the count, you have to make a pitch down
the middle and he hit a home run,” he said through translator Tomas Vera, the
Reds assistant athletic trainer. The switch-hitting Cabrera was batting from the
right side against Chapman. “You just look for a fastball in a zone,” he said.
“You cant try to pull anything. I just wanted to make contact.” Despite the fact
Chapman hits 100 mph consistently on the radar gun, Indians manager Manny Acta
didnt want his players to back down. “My thought was, Hes human, ” Acta said.
“Theres no one in the game where you go and pick up the bats and gloves and go
away. I gave them a little rah-rah talk. Sometimes it works.” Chapman doesnt
think he will have a problem bouncing back from the loss. “Its just another
game,” he said. “What happened happened. All you can do is wait for the next
day.” The Indians have hit both of the home runs Chapman has allowed in 34 1-3
innings. Jose Lopez homered against him in Cincinnati last week. The NL
Central-leading Reds had a six-game winning streak snapped by their Ohio rivals
in a 10-9 slugfest Monday night and seemed to have bbounced back before Cabrera
connected. Jason Snelling Womens Jersey. Pinch-hitter
Willie Harris opened the Reds 10th with a double to centre off Joe Smith. Zach
Cozart, who had three hits, tried to bunt Harris to third, but Smith hustled off
the mound to field the ball and make a throw. Harris seemed to elude the tag by
third baseman Jack Hannahan, but television replays showed that his front foot
slid past the bag as he was tagged out. Hannahan then fielded a broken-bat
grounder by Heisey at the exact instant that the barrel end of the bat bounced
between his legs. Hannahan threw to second to force Harris. Hagadone, a lefty,
came on to face Votto and threw a wild pitch just past the sluggers ear, sending
Heisey to second. Votto worked the count to 3-2 and bounced a ball over
Hagadones head that was fielded by Cabrera, the shortstop, behind second base.
Votto hustled down the line and beat the throw for a single, moving Heisey to
third. Brandon Phillips then swung at an 0-1 pitch in the dirt that got past
Carlos Santana. The catcher tracked it down and shovelled the ball to Hagadone
covering home, but Heisey beat the tag for a 2-1 lead. The Reds went ahead 1-0
in the first against Josh Tomlin. Cozart hit a leadoff double, took third on a
wild pitch and scored as Heisey grounded a ball up the middle and beat the throw
to first by Cabrera for an RBI single. Cleveland tied it in the fourth. Santana
doubled into the right-field corner, moved up on a groundout to the right side
by Michael Brantley and scored on Casey Kotchmans soft single to centre. Reds
starter Mike Leake gave up one run and six hits over seven innings. The
right-hander walked one and struck out four. Tomlin gave up one run and six hits
over 6 2-3 innings in his best outing in five starts since missing three weeks
with a strained right wrist. The right-hander walked two and struck out two.
NOTES: Both managers downplayed an implication by Reds RHP Mat Latos the Indians
stole signs Monday night when they pounded the pitcher for seven runs in four
innings. “We dont do that,” Acta said. “I have enough trouble making sure our
kids know our own signs.” Said Baker: “You dont really have to steal signs when
the ball is down the heart of the plate and up.” ... OF Drew Stubbs (left
oblique strain) is eligible to come off the DL Friday. Baker said Stubbs may
take batting practice Wednesday and a minor-league rehab assignment is possible.
... Bronson Arroyo of the Reds faces Justin Masterson in the series finale on
Wednesday. ’ ’ ’
