The Daily Feed: Sites We're Searching 8/9

You'd think that all of my Olympic excitement would have calmed down by week two. I almost wish it had though now I'm cheering for those running laps around the track instead of those swimming laps in the pool. This Daily Feed isn't as Olympic-themed as last week's, but it comes close. Check out what I've been reading in the last 24 hours.
  • Usain Bolt is fast, proven by his repeat gold medal win in the 100m dash. As he gears up to repeat his 200m win, a feat that would make him the fastest sprinter, Equinox takes a look at what makes him so fast.
  • Last week it was all about what Michael Phelps was doing in the pool. This week People may have had a little too much fun digging up the budding relationship between him and Megan Rossee on Twitter.
  • I'm totally intrigued by the Science of the Games section at How do Oscar Pistorius's blades work? What makes Missy Franklin fly through the water? What's up with Usain Bolt's biomechanics?
  • Thanks Barre Bee Fit for sharing this Cooking Light recipe. That salad needs to go in my!
  • Congratulations to Allyson Felix for grabbing her gold! Sports Illustrated takes a look at the 200m race.
  • I finally read more in The Washington Post about the women's marathon race last Sunday and what happened to that lead that Shalane Flanagan and Kara Goucher held. I feel for Kara: running with calf pain is awful.
  • Lake Michigan: good for sailing, swimming, kayaking and SUP-ing. Ready to take your stand-up paddleboarding to a new level? Try competing in this four-person relay on Saturday--or come out and watch me and the media team test our luck.
  • I've been searching but I can't find this Today Show link. Jenna Bush Hager finished her Today segment with a goof--I swear she said Ashton Easton instead of Ashton Eaton. The only problem is I can't find the video.
What's caught your eye online? What are you reading?
