LONDON 2012: Day 1: Olympics Hero of the Day - Ye Shiwen

Ye Shiwen, 16 year old Chinese girl who won the gold in the 400m Individual Medley AND broke the world record.

Honorable mention to Tunisian fencer Ines Boubakri who fought her way to the quarter-finals before falling to three-time gold medalist (and the most successful Olympic fencer in history) Valentina Vezzali of Italy.

Egypt's table tennis trio Dina Meshref, Omar Assar and El Sayed Lashin did us proud by moving to the second round, while Tunisian Malek Jaziri won his first round in tennis at Wimbledon.

Not to mention the explosive start from Ryan Lochte who won the 400m IM. No podium for Michael Phelps!
