Police haven't found enough evidence that the swimmers were robbed.
Through unrelenting determination and sheer talent, you finally reach the world's greatest theatre of athleticism -- a level of competition few ever reach. You are an Olympian.

So declared our main news splash on Thursday, announcing the birth of two new regional editions of HuffPost, in Alberta and British Columbia. As other major media organizations across the country lay off staff and shutter their presses, HuffPost's expansion west is good news -- great news -- for readers who are rapidly running out of sources of local news and opinion.
Meanwhile it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas -- which is a parent's way of saying it's Back to School time. I need advice on how to a contrive a sympathetic and sorrowful look on my face when my kids and I bump into the stacks of school supplies at the mall. My impulse is to shout, "YES!"
The Canadian men's 4x100 relay team were disqualified in London, but they've won a medal that's perhaps even more precious than Olympic bronze. Elijah Porter, a 10-year-old boy from Newfoundland, wrot...
Watching the Olympics I asked myself over and over again why an individual chose his or her particular sport, and what passion and drive moved them from a simple love of a sport to become an Olympic athlete? It's a question perhaps without one absolute answer.

With the 2012 Olympic Games over and all the results locked in, Canada has finished 13th in medal standings. So, was the London Olympic Games a success or a failure for Canada? Some may justifiably argue that since we did not reach our goal, Canada failed. But, I'm not so sure I'd agree.
Far away from the headlines of this headline-grabbing Olympics is an important lesson that can bring solace to almost every germaphobe. Unlike any other Olympics before, these Games have shown that preventing infection is not only possible, but also relatively easily accomplished.
Christine Sinclair, the tournament-leading six-goal scorer in women's soccer at the Olympics, meets the criteria of what many Canadians consider necessary in the role of a captain. She does not seek the spotlight, but it always, invariably, finds her. Sinclair showed the way. And she should do it again on Sunday as Canada's flag-bearer in the Closing Ceremony.
