London or BUST: 2012 Olympics Introspective – Day 9
Provided by USA Today

Today was another great day for Team USA. It was the 2nd day of Track and Field competition and swimming competition came to a close.

Women's Singles

Congrads to Serena Williams for bring home the Gold Medal in this event. She is well deserved to earn this medal and a well-accomplished tennis player. She played an excellent match against another great tennis player.

Men's Tennis - Pairs

The Bryan brothers played very well and earned their Gold medals in this event. It was a very close match and well deserved.


This is the last post where I will be mentioning anything about swimming for another 4 years. Michael Phelps went out on top with 22 medals overall when he added another Gold medal for the Men's 4x100-meter relay. The Women's team earned another Gold medal as well and broke a world record in the same event.


Team USA brought home a Silver medal in the Cycling - Team Pursuit event. They competed against Great Britain, who brought home the Gold medal and set a new World Record for the event. Team USA did very well and were only 0:05 behind GB.

Track and Field

Team USA brought home several medals for several events. Will Claye brought home the Bronze medal in the Men's Long Jump coming behind GBR and AUS. He was only 0.04 meters behind the Silver medalist. Galan Rupp brought home the Silver medal in the 10K coming behind only less than 0:01 behind the Gold medalist. It was an amazing finish to watch. Carmelita Jeter brought home the Silver Medal in the 100-meter Dash in an outstanding performance finishing behind Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce from Jamaica.

Tomorrow's expected to a very exciting day with the Women's Marathon and other Track and Field events taking place including the Men's 100-meter Dash.

Until tomorrow....

    Greetings, Chicago Suburbanites! Welcome to Active Suburbia! My name is Denise, but I am known as Firefly, Red, and "Hey there". I will be your tour guide to everything active within the Chicago suburbs. In this blog, I will be your guide to places within the Chicagoland Suburbs that will help lead a more active lifestyle and a lot of fun too. In fact, studies have shown that reading this blog will bring a smile on your face, a spring in your step, and burn those last nasty 5 lbs that you can't get off. (Ok, everything's true except for the last one that hasn't been proved.....YET, but I am determined to make it true.) Here's a short introduction about myself: I am a very active person. You can say that I have endurance, determination, grit, and hard work in my bones. I enjoy running and cycling. I have completed a couple of marathons, half-marathons, 5K's, etc in my running career. I also enjoy trying most things active and willing to explore if I have to. I enjoy checking out the trails near me and doing a lot of running. I also enjoy teaching Pilates and yoga. I am also a suburbanite living in the awesome suburb of Berwyn. I am a suburban girl at heart and love every minute of it. I originally grew up in the frozen tundra of the Twin Cities. I am also a die-hard sports fan and enjoy the competitive nature of it. I love baseball, college and professional football, and even hockey. I am always interested in finding more fun places within the Chicago suburbs. If you know of a gem, shoot me an e-mail at You can also follow me on Twitter too.
