The USA may have been tipped as the favourites for gold in the men’s Basketball, but injuries have given opposing teams hopes of an upset ahead of the start of the competition

The USA team arrive in London as the defending champions and with a 54-1 win-loss record that dates back to 2006.

The squad, led by global superstars Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, features five players who won gold in Beijing, and five others who won the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

However, there are plenty of big names missing too, with Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin among those forced to sit this summer’s campaign out. read more

Table Tennis is one of the first sports two begin on the first day of the Olympics 2012.

Lulu, who led out the country’s five-strong Olympic team at the opening ceremony, was carrying the support of the ExCel Arena crowd against Ligia Silva, however, it was far too difficult. For her to overcome the Brazilian, with her exit sealed in a 4-0 defeat.

That was one of three straight games victories in the opening session, in which Canada’s Mo Zhang brushed aside Qatar’s Aia Mohamed, while Cameroon’s Sarah Hanffou wasted little time in cruising past Libya’s Tvin Moumjoghlian.

The other morning encounter was an early contender for match of the day. read more
