Sadly, a mix of work and personal projects kept me away from the computer, er, away from blogging time.
Here's a grab bag of five-ringed headlines, in case you missed them:
- Olympic marathon silver medalist Grete Waitz, who also ran the New York City Marathon (highlighted in this post from January 2009) and Atlanta's Peachtree Road Race, died of cancer.
- Kellogg renewed sponsorship of the U.S. Olympic Committee. This news is Grrrrrrrrrrrreat!
- Nintendo and Sega will bring Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
- Olympic champion Carl Lewis is not only running for New Jersey Senate, but he also has a New Jersey driver's license!
- Olympic champion and fellow Edmond, Okla., home-towner Shannon Miller is tackling cancer treatment with exercise regiment.
- London will spend a cable car full of money to build a transport system across the Thames in time for the 2012 Games.
- Rio's historic architecture is worth revitalizing before 2016, say some locals.
Make it an Olympic day!
