Lane 1 - The OC Register posts "Comeback only part of Evans' busy life. Janet Evans displayed the retrieval skills of a proud mother Friday night at the Speedo Grand Challenge. Mere minutes after racing in the 400-meter freestyle, the mother of two plucked her iPhone from her backpack and quickly showed video and pictures of 5-year-old daughter Sydney."
Lane 2 - Summer Time! "Jersey Shore Shark Attack (2012) - Trailer. Many years ago, hundreds of locals and tourists were massacred by giant man-eating sharks in the infamous 1916 Jersey Shore attacks. But that's just a legend... or is it? It's a holiday weekend on the Jersey Shore and, unbeknownst to anyone, underwater drills have attracted dozens of albino bull sharks to the pier. When a man goes missing, TC (The Complication), Nookie and friends fear the worst and plead with the police chief to close down the beach. It isn't until a famous singer is eaten alive during a performance on the pier that the shark hunt begins. Now, the Preppies must work together with the Guidos in order to save the Jersey Shore and its inhabitants from another vicious slaughter." via youtube
Lane 3 - FT Magazine posts "Watch the real Olympic relay – on eBay. Commercialism is fine, but what grates is the attempt to pretend that everything is still true to the Games’ original ideals. Talk about getting into the spirit of the Olympics: within hours of the London 2012 flame being lit, eBay was filling up with people offering to sell the torches they are due to carry over the next few weeks. Apparently, each of the 8,000 people who will bear the flame has their own torch and can purchase it after the event for about £200."
Lane 4 - The Australian posts "Jones warms up for London with win in Canada. OLYMPIC 100m breaststroke champion Leisel Jones appears to be back on track for the London Games after a morale-boosting win at the Canada Cup today. Jones was not her world-beating self at the Australian Olympic trials in March as she struggled with a persistent ear infection and was beaten into second place in her pet event by rising star Leiston Pickett."
Lane 5 - Brisbane Times posts "Odd bods driven by common goal. They're a team without a catchy moniker, so Olympic champions will do just fine, writes Daniel Lane. The four men expected to form Australia's formidable 4x100m freestyle team in the final of the London Olympics are vastly different characters, but James Roberts - the grandson - chef Eamon Sullivan, footy warrior James Magnussen and business graduate Matt Targett share a bond initially forged by a common goal which quickly developed into a mateship that could provide them with a winning edge when their lungs are screaming for oxygen and their arms feel like anchors."
Lane 6 - iOL posts posts "Swim champ burgled. It was meant to be a day of celebration for Cameron van der Burgh. But by lunch time on Friday, the Commonwealth and World Champion swimmer’s 24th birthday had turned into a nightmare. In a home burglary half of his trophy and medal collection was stolen. The swimmer’s parents’ home in Pretoria was broken into and ransacked on Friday. His mother discovered the crime when she returned from a shopping trip."

Lane 8 - The West posts "Olympic dream comes true for kid with attitude. Tommaso D’Orsogna was just six years old when he turned to his aunt, who was dropping him off at his Perth swimming club, and declared with absolute certainty that he was going to swim in the Olympics one day. While D’Orsogna conceded he probably sounded like a “punk kid with attitude” back then, 15 years on the sprint swimmer heads to his first Olympic Games in London in August."
