Clip of the Week (Olympics Week 1)

As promised, this week's Clip of the Week is coming from jolly old London, where the first week of the Olympics hasn't disappointed.

So with apologies to this trick shot from John Daly (not Olympics-related), and this crazy buzzer-beater in women's basketball, and this rant from former TARP Inspector General Neal Barofsky (also not Olympics-related, but read his book if you liked it), and this world record from Dana Vollmer, and this amazing vault from McKayla Maroney in the women's gymnastics team final... this week's Clip of the Week is going to Nathan Adrian, who won the 100 freestyle in what may have been the race of the Olympics so far.

Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to embed NBC's videos on my page (I'm pretty sure they made it impossible, and I'll save my long list of gripes about NBC's coverage for another time), so you'll have to go to their site to watch the clip (click here). Congrats to Nathan and the rest of the American gold medalists; it's been a fun week.
