London 2012: Best Athlete Tweets, Twitpics and Instagrams from Day 2
Day 2 was a bit unkind to two of America's most high-profile teams. Both the men's swimming team and women's gymnastics team were shaken by the suddenness of Olympic competition.
Jordyn Wieber did not qualify for the all-around competition as she was edged out by her own teammate. The two gymnasts per country rule bit the Americans today.
Perhaps over-confidence bit the men's swimming team. They were stunned by France in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay. Olympians reacted to both defeats as well as to any and everything else happening for them in their Olympic experience.
Check it out.
Jordyn Wieber missed out on a chance at all-around gold, but she is ready for the next challenge:

There's nothing like brotherly love:
On the phone to my mum...mum: "do u want to say good luck to your brother?" My brother: "you're sh*t"...thanks @Benjdaley (Y)— Tom Daley (@TomDaley1994) July 29, 2012
If someone is doing tricks like this at a party, I'm betting there's a liquid present that Daley isn't old enough to drink.
Something tells me Belarus isn't as swanky as the Olympic Village. Jordan Burroughs chimes in:
Made it safe to Belarus. It's no Olympic Village, but we've got to make the most of it!— Jordan Burroughs (@alliseeisgold) July 29, 2012
This has no redeeming value beyond the fact that I was struck by her beauty in this picture—oh, and nice shoes. Allyson Felix is already shining like gold and she hasn't even competed yet. Carry on.
