British rock stars are seizing the stage to close the Olympics with an extravaganza that promises to keep a worldwide audience entertained well into the night — and dancing all the way to Rio.
The London Olympics opening ceremony will be a grand spectacle — but will it be a surprise? In a word, no.
The decision-makers finally have an answer to the question of who will light the Olympic cauldron at Friday's opening ceremony.
With the opening ceremony less than two weeks away, there's a mad dash to the finish line at the Olympics, and it has nothing to do with sprinters.
Roger Bannister returned to the track where he broke the 4-minute barrier for the mile 58 years ago, walking slowly but smiling broadly as he carried the Olympic torch across the finish line Tuesday just 17 days before the start of the London Games.
Beat it, Beckham. That was essentially the message given former England captain David Beckham, who was told he failed to make the British soccer team for the London Olympics — the very games he helped secure for his country.
