International Athletes Prepare for London Games
Around the world, Olympic trials are being held to determine who will represent each country in London in just a few short weeks. Here in the US, the competition has been fierce, especially in swimming and gymnastics. Janet Evans, the 40-year-old swimmer who was looking to make a comeback, retired after a poor showing in the preliminaries, and in a massive upset, Scott Weltz beat both Brendan Hansen and Eric Shanteau, the two favorites in the 200-meter breaststroke, to claim a spot on Team USA. Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps are similarly duking it out in the pool. In women's gymnastics, competitors have been falling and stumbling, including Nastia Liukin, the all-around gold medalist, making it difficult to tell who might make the team. No matter who ends up on the American Olympic team, London is the place to be this summer to see all the best in sports. For those traveling to England for the games, the first place they should look when asking where to buy Olympics tickets is online at QueenBeeTickets.com. With seats to swimming, gymnastic, and all of the top events, the website can make sure everyone gets to see who stands atop the podium!
