London Olympics Live Updates: Medals, Records & More From 2012 Summer Games

The London Games are in full swing.

Once the alternately educational and mesmerizing Opening Ceremony was out of the way, everyone was finally ready to focus on the Summer Games themselves. Although the full schedule of events actually kicked off before the Opening Ceremony, many Olympics watchers really jumped in headfirst when Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and and a bevy of other swimmers hit the pool during the first weekend of the Games.

With more than 14,000 athletes from more than 200 countries competing over more than two weeks in events ranging from beach volleyball and handball to swimming and gymnastics, there will be something for everyone -- although not likely medals for all.
