This story is not for the squeamish.

One South African runner is not your typical female athlete.

People in the equestrian media tent were given a good scare.

A Belgian wins the men's road cycling Gold Medal.

A thief is caught using the camera gear he stole from a reporter covering the games.

Eleven black Olympic athletes you might not know about.

Here are some stars you won't see.

And finally, one of our presidential candidates just had to use the Olympics to take a swipe at another (and neither is Mr. Bill's wife).
