There was an upset in Olympic swimming last night in London. Not because Ryan Lohte of Team USA won the gold medal in Men's 400m Individual Medley, but because his teammate, Michael Phelps, who is considered the best swimmer in the world, didn't make the podium. He came in fourth place. Thiago Pereira of Brazil won silver and Kosuke Hagino of Japan won bronze.
On the Canadian side of the things, Our women's soccer team beat South Africa 3-0, Joshua Binstock and Martin Reader won their first beach volleyball match against Great Britain 2-0 (21-19, 21-13).
