London’s been getting ready for the Olympics for years, and now the Games have finally arrived: Events started earlier this week, and the opening ceremonies are going on right now. We here at The Sports Section are ready to go, too. We’ve been profiling some athletes with whom you’ll want to familiarize yourself. We talked with teenage Brooklyn fencer Race Imboden, as well as Olympic legends Greg Louganis and Carl Lewis. We kicked off our swimming, gymnastics, and basketball coverage, and took a closer look at Carmelo Anthony’s role on a star-studded U.S. hoops team. We even offered some suggestions on how to light the Olympic cauldron. But what happened this week that didn’t involve British sporting heroes?
We tried to quantify the Knicks’ Jim Dolan era.
The NCAA handed down its sanctions to Penn State.
And the Knicks’ and Nets’$2 2012–13 schedules were released.
That’s it for us. Have a great weekend.
