8:09 am
>> david kerley, thank you for your reporting this morning. we want to switch gears now, in the big news, the marquee rivalry at the olympics. not only did ryan lochte take home the gold but michael phelps didn't even score a bronze. meanwhile, women's gymnastics is about to kick off. former anchor of weekend "good morning america," bill weir is in london covering the games for abc news and having a blast. there he is, smiling already. >> good to be with you. top of the morning from rainy london. we're getting our first storm of these games. michael phelps and ryan lochte share a six-bedroom suite in the olympic village. phelps being the reign of the pool gets his own room. you have to think he was alone with his own thoughts after yesterday's stunning result. >> it was a sight difficult to comprehend.
8:10 am
"the star spangled banner" plays as a u.s. swimmer steps up for gold. but phelps is nowhere to be found. because they belong to ryan lochte. he owned the 400 individual medley from the beginning. taking the early lead. and flirting with a world record time. and phelps, he's the one lagging far behind, barely a contender after the first lap. sinking to a distance fourth at the end. his main american rivalry, lochte, easily winning gold. hours before phelps barely qualified. for the finals. look at that again. afterwards, lochte tweeted, thanks to my fans. this gold was for lochte nation. that's what happens when lochte nation unites. while michael phelps tweets, not pleased with my race tonight. but tomorrow is a new day and a new race. you have to go back to 2000 olympics, when phelps was 15, the last time he raced and didn't medaled. it was a solid day for swimming all around.
8:11 am
american elizabeth beisel took silver. back on terra firma u.s. men's gymnastics team top of the standings after the qualifying round. in hoops, the u.s. trounced croatia. while in soccer, they routed colombia, one step closer to repeating their 2008 gold medal win. in volleyball, the top-ranked u.s. women's team held off south korea. and tension as tight as a bow, as america's first medal of the games slipped from gold to silver. on the last arrow, in the men's archery competition, italy needed a bull's eye to win and that's where the final arrow landed. happened to be in a london pub, and i never saw a crowd more excited about archery than at that moment. the morning papers -- no brit has medaled yet. so, our swimmers are front-page news.
8:12 am
there's a superstar is born on the top of the sunday times. pool shark atop the sunday times as well. this is that sinking feeling, the underwater picture of phelps and "the sun" going with close-ups of beach volleyball bums. there you go. right there. >> bill weir, thank you. we appreciate it. >> i read bill's tweet from the pub in london. he was having a good time last night. we love having bill on. we can't get enough from the shocker from the olympics. we'll have more. we're joined by summer sanders. no stranger to the olympics herself, she won four medals in the pool at the u.s. at the barcelona games. thank you so much for joining us. >> it's my pleasure. >> i have to ask you, the first time in 12 years that phelps didn't win an olympic medal. >> it's a shocker. that's been the headline back in
8:13 am
the stage. it shocked him. i didn't expect him to walk away with the gold medal in the 400 i.m. his first racepy didn't exhibit him to get fourth. he didn't, either. he's very competitive. he's disappointed with it. the question is, how can he come back? not only mentally but physically, how can he feel strong. >> yesterday, he barely qualified for this i.m. he had to swim in the eighth lane, the outside lane d that impact his performance, do you think? >> i have to say, he didn't mean to qualify eighth, certainly, because he only made it in.07. he naturally breathes to his right on the lap. he knew exactly where he was. the fact was, he didn't have enough gas if the tank to bring it home. that's so unusual for michael phelps. we don't like seeing him like that because he's our olympic hero. >> phelps and lochte are going
8:14 am
to go head to head one more time who has the mental edge right now. >> well, i think it's pretty obvious, ryan lochte, let's give him some credit. he won the first gold medal for the united states last night and he definitely has the advantage. he feels good. he feels strong. he had the swim of his life. and he has a gold medal already. so that weight is off his shoulders. but michael phelps, he knows how to bring it back and he loves a challenge and this is the challenge of a lifetime for him. and he loves the 200 i.m. it's a better event. the longer events are going to be tougher for him. this 200 i. xhchlt could be more of battle zp summer sandsers, thank you so much for joining us. now, here's a look at the medal count. china is in the lead. they just won another gold. they have a total of 7. then it's italy, followed by the u.s., with one gold, two silver and two bronze.
8:15 am
we want to keep piling up those golds. >> much more with bill weir in london in our next half-hour. we'll switch gears now and turn to your voice, your vote. mitt romney is in israel, the second stop of his international tour and the presidential candidate has already made news, outlining how he would have handled the escalating tension with iran. david muir is traveling with romney and has more this morning from jerusalem. >> bianna, good morning from jerusalem. where mitt met with israeli prime minister benjamin net ya hue this morning. the two are longtime friends. emerging from israel here this morning, tough talk on iran. in fact, the foreign policy adviser with the romney campaign saying that romney would respect and back a military strike against tehran. romney is expected to elaborate on this later on in his speech.
8:16 am
in an excerpt released, make no mistake, they're testing our moral defenses. they want to know who will object and who will look the other way. the obama administration hasn't taken military options off the table. we'll ask the governor for exact differences between what he's laying out and what the president is saying. >> david, thank you. dan? will that warm welcome in israel be enough to erase memories of romney's snake-bitten visit to london. let's ask matthew dowd who's in for george stephanopoulos on "this week" today. so, pretty good start to the visit to israel. he had a rough ride in london. did he do himself actually lasting damage, mr. romney, when he was in london, can this israel trip make up for it? >> he did himself momentary defense.
8:17 am
when you traveling internationally for the first time and who's on the whole stage, you want to be competent. that london part of the team didn't demonstrate that. i think he obviously has to finish this up strong and well in israel and come back to the united states. because he wants to get back here as soon as he can and talk again about the economy. so, finish strong. put london past him. come back and talk about the economy. >> let me ask you a question closer to home, even the president's advisers, according to the "new york times" today, are a little worried that some of his tv ads have gone too negative. i know both candidates are negative. but, is there a risk here for that the president was a hope of change? >> it's a balance that you have to look at. i look at negative ads like weed killers, you have to have enough weed killers but
8:18 am
not too much to damage your own lawn. they're concerned that they're damaging their own lawn. the last two weeks, 90% of the ads that president obama's campaign has run negative ad. equally so for mitt romney. but equally problem for barack obama he seems to dropped down to the same thing that americans are really tired up. >> it's all about the proper dosage of that weed killer. matt dowd, thank you for your input this morning. by the way, matt has a big show this morning, with jon karl who scored an interview with dick cheney. time now for the weather and ginger zee. ginger, good morning. good morning, everyone. it was a rainy and stormy day in the northeast. in new york city, over 5 1/2 inches. record rainfalls. it looks like this when you put it on the ground and you can't really handle it. look it.
