Bolt, Phelps the stars as Olympics return to cradle of sport

17 July 2012, 13:30

London - Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps defend their hero status against new rivals when the Olympics return to the cradle of modern sport for the London Games.

The Jamaican Bolt redefined the men's sprint with gold medal runs in world record times in the 100 metres, 200m and 4x100m at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He has further improved the records since then but also has a formidable rival in countryman Yohan Blake.

Phelps won an unprecedented eight gold medals at one Games four years ago for an overall record 14, and the American swimmer also has a major challenger from his own camp in Ryan Lochte.
