MARCHING IN THE RAIN?
After a few days of glorious and, well, summer weather for the summer games, rain is back in London's forecast starting on Friday.
U.S. fencer Mariel Zagunis may have to deal with it for a change.
Her sport is an indoor sport, so rain, sun, whatever, it's irrelevant to her in competition. But she's also the U.S. flag bearer for the opening ceremony on Friday night, so she might have to do her job amid raindrops.
"There's so many things that you can't control," Zagunis says. "And the weather is obviously one of them. If it rains, it rains. We're still going to have a great time and it's not going to affect anything."
Zagunis said she has a more simple concern: "I'm just going to focus on not tripping."
