TMZ first reported, Miller filed a paternity lawsuit against Sara McKenna, seeking to establish custody rights — their son will be born next month.

McKenna tells us she plans to fight Bode’s request, claiming the ski champ previously wanted NOTHING to do with the baby. McKenna says Miller initially denied the baby was even his and has not bothered to contact her since she got knocked up.

Sara says she and Bode dated sporadically in Spring 2012 (right before he hit it off with his new wife, Morgan Beck) and the pregnancy was unplanned.

According to, The London Standard Ye Shiwen 16, did something that was truly unheard of. In winning the 400 metres individual medley, she not only broke the world record but actually swam faster than a man: her time of 28.93 seconds in the last 50 metres of the freestyle leg easily bettered the 29.1 seconds that the American Ryan Lochte had managed in the men’s event minutes earlier. Some are wondering if she’s using drugs?

Voula Papachristou Expelled From Olympics Made Racist Comments On Twitter

The Hellenic Olympic Committee – Greek’s Olympic federation – made the decision to expel Papachristou from the Olympic team after she made a racist comment on Twitter.

 

“With so many Africans in Greece … at least the West Nile mosquitos will eat homemade food!!!,” Papachristou wrote. She also reposted a comment from controversial Greek politician Ilias Kasi diaris, who has strongly criticized his government’s “soft” immigration policy.

When Papachristou realized she might not be allowed to participate in the Olympics, she tried to apologize  by saying.

“I would like to express my heartfelt apologies for the unfortunate and tasteless joke I published on my personal Twitter account,” she said. “I am very sorry and ashamed for the negative responses I triggered, since I never wanted to offend anyone, or to encroach human rights.”

It was too late the damage was done. Greek Olympic chiefs consulted with senior members of the Greek parliament, including aides to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, before making their decision.

Princess Beatrice got her running shoes on at the weekend to part in a five-mile race on Sunday.

 
The young royal was competing alongside 5,000 members of the public who had been chosen to inaugurate the athletics track in the newly renovated Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London.

 

 

“I am thrilled to be able to play my part in such a historic occasion and it is fantastic to see the incredible transformation that the Olympic Park has undergone,” she told crowds as runners took their positions.

 
“I, like so many others running on the day, know that the experience of being one of the first to cross the Olympic finish line is an extraordinary moment in what promises to be a memorable year for the nation”.

 
After sounding the klaxon to start the race, the Queen’s granddaughter then joined the throng to complete the task in a respectable 45 minutes 45 seconds – crossing the finish line to the sounds of Chariots of Fire.

 
The jog won’t have been too taxing for Beatrice, who is used to these kinds of sporting events.

 
In 2010 she became the first member of the royal family to run the London marathon, raising money for the charity Children in Crisis.
