2012 Olympics Preview: Caitlin Leverenz Tries To Upset Ye Shiwen In 200 IM Final

Caitlin Leverenz hopes to shock the world by upsetting the Chinese upstart Ye Shiwen. Leverenz is in a good spot to contend for a medal (finishing 3rd in the heats and semifinals), but it'll be tough for her to win gold. Can the Tucson product make it happen?

Andre Iguodala and James Harden will be two of the big Arizona faces in action, as both collegiate products from the University of Arizona and Arizona State respectively will be competing for the United States men's basketball team against Tunisia. Amy LePeilbet will also be competing for the United States women's soccer team against North Korea.
