2012 Olympic Swimsuit Mishap.html
US Swimmer and Beijing relay gold medalist Ricky Berens tore the back of his swimsuit in a qualifying heat of the 4x100m relay freestyle on Sunday during the World Swimming Championships in Rome. Shortly before stepping up to the starting block, the University of Texas senior leaned down to stretch and his suit tore.
"I kind of freaked out for just a second," Berens said. "I felt like [the hole] was almost down to my knees. I felt like I was putting on a pretty good show."
He did. And the US qualified for finals and won. Photos of Michael Phelps and the victory here.

At 4 is any other new Korean entry; Kim Tae-kyeong brings us the primary horror of the summer with "Don"t Click", a movie that has been getting combined studies from critics forward of its opening weekend.
Another "Madagascar" turns out to were made; this time the hilarity takes position in Europe. Animations are typically neatly won in Korea, yet "Madagascar 3: Europe"s maximum Wanted" handiest controlled to come into the sport with 39,712.

While he does feel sympathy and a feeling of justice after he's taking at the cases, acknowledged situations also roughly land onto his lap and the truth that they all just take place to be attached to the key plot feels contrived as well.
There are many fantastic parts about "Hero - Drama - 2012" and the characters are fun, yet it's totally challenging to glue to them on a more than superficial point at this point. so much is dependent on whether they are going to make any other season, for the explanation that thing here is, OCN isn't that fab with intensity of tale and while they are attempting to move for a more US tv form of format, their storytelling strategies are that of Korean drama. The plot feels too stretched out so as to hide many episodes and regardless of its exciting presentation, it feels slow on the improvement side.
This manner that the drama sounds like an introductory season and then the "real" thing will start. The query is, will it? This may also be a series value finding out for all of the excellent things it does, but it does no longer feel like one that will be a standalone drama. If OCN has some other season planned, then this is able to just be great. For now, there is attainable no longer yet realized.
