The 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London have reached their midway point. This weekend attention turns to London's Olympic Stadium and a smorgasbord of blue riband track and field events. Anchor Aaron Schachter talks with The World's Alex Gallafent about the race to determine the world's fastest man, and about the first women to compete in the Olympic Games for Saudi Arabia. Alex also has the story of a controversial running of the 400 meters race in London's Olympic Games of 1908. Plus a touch of sporting poetry for the weekend in celebration of amateur athletes everywhere.
