Sad Turn of Affairs in Beijing

Apparently, parents of 2004 volleyball Olympian Elisabeth "Wiz" Bachman and in-laws of U.S. men's volleyball coach Hugh McCutcheon were attacked by a Chinese man while visiting the 13th-century Drum Tower in Beijing, just a day after the 2008 Olympic ceremony began. More here.

Also in Beijing: Gary Russell, Jr., another Olympic hopeful from the DC area, will not get his chance at Olympic glory when he fainted after practice trying to make weight. More here.

Russell talks about missing his chance. See it here.

Talk about tough times at the Olympics. Here's hoping things take an upward turn from here on out.
