The silver medal that swimmer Park Tae-hwan won in the men's 200-m freestyle at the London Olympics was not the real deal but rather a counterfeit version, according to the Korean Olympic Committee on Monday. The IOC prepares copies in case of emergencies, such as an athlete misplacing one, or in the event of two athletes sharing the same medal, which was the case for Park. He won two silver medals in London -- in the men's 400-m freestyle and 200-m freestyle, -- but had to split second place with Chinese swimmer Sun Yang in the shorter event."

After trying in vain to pry him off me and hand him to a teen-aged instructor, I gave up and got in the pool with him. I had no idea what to do, but the young teacher did. Over several days, she stood with us in the shallow end and patiently fetched toys -- plastic fish, tiny watering cans, little boats -- to entertain Leo until he let her take him without tears."
