The411 with Sherlene Shanklin:  We are just days away from the beginning of the London Olympics.  Athletes from all over the world will gather to compete for their country.  Kentucky will be well represented from Lexington native Tyson Gay to Louisville native Clark Burckle.  Everyone including myself will watch the games every chance I get over the next two weeks.  Everyone is wondering what role will Louisville native Muhammad Ali will play in the opening ceremonies.  I know that his brother Rahmaan will carry the Olympic torch during the relay on behalf of his brother.  Some people at one point, thought that the "Greatest" would light the torch like he did in the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta.  We will have to see who will be added to the iconic Olympic moment.  The 2012 Summer Olympics will be held in London from July 27th to August 12th.  If you have a family member on the USA Team and you live in Kentucky and Indiana I would like to hear from you.  Send your information to The411@whas11.com.  You can also follow me on twitter @Sherlenemediapr.
