Riders sweltered during the second longest stage in this year's race climbing to nearly 50 degrees. Their endurance tested with a bunch sprint to the finish. McEwen jostled with Tour leader Thor Hushovd but the 34-year-old held out. Every year the eyes of the sporting world turn to France for the Tour and it seems every year there's another drug scandal. Winning the Tour de France is the pinnacle of cycling. Some cyclists resort to drugs to help give them a winning edge. The favoured method is EPO. That stands for erythropoietin. giving energy to all our tissues and organs. can inject extra EPO, made in a lab, into their bloodstream so the bone marrow produces more red blood cells and more oxygen gets to the muscles. Even in an endurance sport only over a few hours it will allow you to exercise harder at a higher intensity, you have that added advantage of over a long period of time as well. In 1998 the Festina team was kicked out of the Tour between fake EPO and natural EPO. as some athletes have successfully appealed against their positive tests. formerly called Liberty, was asked to withdraw because its manager was involved in a doping scandal. Two of the hot favourites have also been banned. And Lance Armstrong continues to be accused of blood doping even after he's retired. The more red blood cells you have the thicker the blood becomes. It can clot, stopping oxygen getting to parts of your heart or brain There have been numerous reports of cyclists dying in the Tour de France because their blood was too thick and they've had strokes. So I guess the riders just have to train harder but many of them are already training up to eight hours per day so is there a point where they can just train too much? We know if people overtrain their motivation reduces, they become more depressed. glandular fever and we know too much training does impair your immune system so you're much more prone to developing infections. Former world champion triathlete Greg Welch used to spend nearly all day swimming, cycling and running. and is now restricted to only walking. Doctors advise me that I'm done as a competitive athlete or I may well be dead. If you have a heart condition intense training can bring on a heart attack. affecting only about 1 in every 200,000 young athletes. But if you get any symptoms excessive breathlessness, excessive tiredness, it can be checked for. For most of us, overtraining isn't the problem, it's getting out there in the first place. I need a nap. From the peak cyclists to the world's highest mountain peaks, and Emily's in the Ten News centre with more on that. Good morning, Scott. Yes, young Aussie climber Christopher Harris was just eight when he and his dad made it up Australia's highest peak, Since then he's climbed four of the world's seven highest mountains, and two months ago he headed off on his biggest adventure so far - 15-year-old Christopher Harris was after a place in history to be the youngest to reach the peak of Mt Everest. It's what he's always wanted to do. before catching a bus to base camp, 5,200 metres above sea level. It was pretty cold at night-time. but we stayed up until, like, 11:00 watching DVDs. At this high altitude there's less oxygen. So to get their bodies used to that they moved up and down between the various camps. you don't get up any earlier then probably 9:00, it's too cold. You're really waiting till the sun's up on the tent

so 10:00 is breakfast, 3:00 is lunch and 8:00 is dinner. we got pizza and chicken and that sort of stuff, so that was pretty good, but up at the North Col it was pretty sort of mashed potato and a bit of salami heated up. Each day they walked between five and eight hours. where you look down this big slope and that On May the 1st the team made it to the 7,000 metres camp, not uncommon at high altitude. And with a badly twisted ankle as well, Richard turned back. Christopher pressed on for the summit with Lincoln Hall. I was naturally concerned Also I wanted to be there when he made it. Christopher experienced very low blood pressure I had this thing that the doctor calls a collapse, where I couldn't really breathe properly. It was like I had been underwater for about a few minutes And just 1,500 metres from the summit on advice from his dad and Hall he turned back. Reliving their amazing adventure back home, Christopher and Richard don't see what happened as defeat. had ever reached on Everest. The father and son team intend to keep climbing. Richard's not sure if he'll give Everest another go but Christopher? Yeah, I'll definitely give it another go. And Scott, he's still aiming to conquer all seven tallest mountains. That's something only around 200 climbers have achieved. Christopher's certainly following his dreams.

Originally, America was colonised, or ruled by Britain. In 1774, representatives from 12 of Great Britain's 17 North American colonies met to discuss an end to British rule. Then they rebelled, beginning an eight year war with Britain. On July the second 1776, after much debate, the colonies voted unanimously for independence. Then they worked on a document called the Declaration of Independence until all agreed. independent states - the United States of America. and fireworks ever since. A Brisbane high-schooler is about to embark on They've already had to postpone two launch attempts because of thunderstorms, once on Sunday and again yesterday. Now they're hoping the skies above the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in Florida will be clear enough tomorrow

A Brisbane high-schooler is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. picked for space school in the United States. 16-year-old Claire Berry has just received her own personal space suit. when you go over to the space camp. It's got a NASA patch on it Claire is one of just two Aussie students picked to fly to Alabama for NASA's exclusive space school. There's one boy from Sydney, me and teacher of the year from Canberra. As part of her training Claire will spend time submersed in a scuba tank. it's the closest thing you can find to the feeling of weightlessness. She'll also learn about the mental, emotional and physical demands astronauts face. The week-long advanced space academy program is college-accredited. from the University of Alabama. The camp also teaches the space cadets team work. As part of their practice in the lunar orbiter students will rotate roles and responsibilities just like a real astronaut would in orbit. She hopes her time at NASA will be the perfect set-up for a future career on Earth, designing rockets. An aeronautical engineer would design new aircraft, maintain aircraft and also rockets. She gets a space suit. She gets to be over there, she gets a NASA badge. She gets that branding as the one in Australia who gets that opportunity. For now there's just the question of the money for her air fare. But as the latest schoolyard hero you can guarantee more than one sausage sizzle to raise the funds.

The battle for Wimbledon is under way in the UK but in Australia there's a battle of a different kind Disturbing claims of cheating have emerged, after being ripped off at junior tournaments. In the heat of sports competition, even at the junior level,

there's usually an umpire to make the tight decisions and implement the rules. and I can't think of any other sport that doesn't have an umpire. And that means it's the kids calling the shots. Probably 50% of matches there's cheating going on. They come back from the tournament, crying their eyes out that they've been cheated and I have to console them. Tennis coaches Dale Collings and Greg Braun say they're fed up with losing promising players to other sports

While the association is aware of cheating accusations, it doesn't think it's a widespread problem. If we start putting umpires on every single junior match you'd probably quadruple the cost of participation in the sport. So it seems the ball is back in the players' court. Most of the kids are quite fair and want to play fair but there are some out there who really want to win at any cost. And Lleyton Hewitt is through to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Lleyton took on Spain's David Ferrer in the fourth round. After winning the first two sets he dropped the third and was forced to come back from 3-love down in the fourth. two of the favourite nations are gone England lost David Beckham to injury and Wayne Rooney to a red card Brazil is also out. France scored the winning goal. we thought we'd test how popular soccer has become. if they're ready to switch codes. but a lot of people do prefer soccer because it's played all over the world. And do you know anyone who's thinking, "I'd rather play soccer now?" No, not really, apart from my little sister but she didn't play much sport anyway.
