Find out how Red Spot is positively different to the big rental-car companies. Go with the underdog and save. Australia's Olympic team boss has hit out at sections of the media over unflattering photos of swimmer Leisel Jones and suggestions she's not taking her sport seriously. For more we're joined from London by Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew. Edwina, Nick Green's been very strong Not just Nick Green a bevy of female athletes, Cathy Freeman, Giaan Rooney, Libby Trickett. Many competing alongside her. I'm disappointed with the article. And I think they're extremely unfair on Leisel Jones and the work she's done for this country at this level. She's a triple Olympic gold medallist, winner of eight medals for this country. I think she deserves a lot more respect than she was given. I think most people would certainly agree with Nick Green there. Leisel Jones coach says this won't disrupt her preparations for the Games you her preparations for the Games but her preparations for the Games but you can imagine it would hurt on the psychological front, guys. Yes, Nick Green has been busy. He had a few stern words for members of our athletes team, arguing with Athletics Australia? Yes, it was quite a fiery press conference Nick Green who is usually quite mild quite a fiery press conference from mannered, Mel. It was to do with the issues evolving around John Steffensen and Josh Ross. They are angry they can't compete angry they can't competely and in the 4 by 100 relay. John Steffensen has called it on race angry they can't competely and only

issues and has called for a federal inquiry on the selection process. He threatened to pull out of the Games. Nick Green has had quite enough of that. He is what he had to say about that. My suggestion would be that you get into the village and put your head down and your bum up and concentrate on your job and that is to run and compete for this country. He said he has 400 Olympians to take care of and he wants all of their focus to be on competition, which is fair enough, two days out. He is really laying down the law, which is good really laying down the law, which is good. Look, Charles and Camilla turned up for the torch relay, did they pull on the track suit? No, didn't break a sweat, they were only there to see the torches kiss as they passed from one runner to the other. Kochie, you might like this, one of the 153 torch bearers was Rupert grinch, flying the flame for red heads around the world. He was honoured for his charity work as well. I can tell you, tomorrow, we will see a few more of the royals out and about as the torch makes its way towards the Olympic Stadium. Just quickly, sign of rehearsals behind you? Well, Mel, keeping our eagle eyes on the stadium behind us, we can hear some music, there are choppers hovering above, we saw smoke earlier, we expect it to go until midnight when we will see fireworks. Whamo. Good on you. Still ahead this Sunrise - Hawks coach Alistair Clarkson suspended for swearing at a junior footy official. Plus, Qantas of Arabia.

You should wear those socks during the Olympics? Don't you think? Good idea. Phlthe flash of gold. As you can imagine, Leisel Jones is making the papers. The Melbourne 'Age' has Nick Green's comments we've been reporting this morning: But journalist Greg Baum says the debate should be about Leisel's fitness, not body image. Writing in 'The Age', he says: No-one is saying Jones is fat but some are asking if she is in trim and taught condition ready to contend for more medals. He contends: We will get more on this after seven. We will chat with Olympics legend Lisa Curry, who can comment more than us, having been there. She mous must know herself? She must be OK. There is no way she would be in that position, on that team in that group and not be prepared. This is it. One of her great moments. Olympic Games, she is a multiple it. One of her great moments. Fourth medallist and ready to go. She wouldn't be allowed to go if she wasn't in great condition. You don't get a spot on the team from sympathy. Yep, correct. On a different note from the Games, Leisel's swimming colleague, Stephanie Rice, has been tweeting about the pool. She says: Could prove quite interesting. How do you feel about unisex toilets? Have your say this Sunrise. I remember once being at a big photo studio and going to the bathroom and coming out and there was a bloke walking in and for that split second I thought, " I thought, "My God, I walked into the wrong one." I am not keen on them myself. Stage fright. As long as you girls learn how to put the seat up, no problem for anyone. Moving on. Away from the Games - a new study into child care is making headlines. It says entering care as a baby, or a 2- or 3-year-old makes no difference to a child. Repeat: no difference! The report found long hours in child care makes kids happy and competent. Childcare centres have welcomed the findings. What do you think? Our kids will be OK. Yes. It will all be right? an 11-year-old boy who managed to slip through security at a major British airport He wasn't in child care? No, he was with his mum. And fly to Rome without a passport, ticket or boarding pass. Red-faced officials at Manchester Airport say he mingled with other passengers and just walked on board the plane. Cabin crew eventually picked up the mistake. After landing in Rome, the boy was taken back to his relieved mum on the next flight. Just fantastic story. So he and mum have gone to the Withenshore shopping centre, he went, " shopping centre, he went, "Mum, I had a gutfull." And went to the airport and went to Rome. Apparently he tagged along with another family with a whole bunch of kids. I can see how he got through the gates but he must have got a random seat? Tell us about your run away stories? Still ahead - the woman curing the world's worst hoarders. But next, news, sport and weather together. You're watching Sunrise on the Seven Network. The Olympic swim star introduces us to his mum. News time first, though, here's Nat. Hello again. Australia's Olympic team boss has lashed out over criticism of Liesel Jones' weight ahead of the London Games. Newspapers ran pictures of the Olympic legend yesterday, hinting she may not be in shape to defend her 100m breaststroke title. Chef de Mission Nick Green says insulting one of our finest athletes is a disgrace. I'm disappointed with the article and I think they're extremely unfair on Leisel Jones and the work she's done for this country on this level. Trouble too for our track-and-field squad. Josh Ross is threatening to walk out on the team while John Steffensen is calling for an inquiry after both were overlooked for individual berths. Officials have ordered them to stop complaining. Police closed off part of central Melbourne last night when a suspicious package was found in an electronics shop. The Bomb Squad was called to the premises in Gallagher Lane and Little Collins Street around 8:00. One building was evacuated. The area was declared safe just after 11:00pm. Forensic experts in Sydney have spent the night examining a bomb, which was left at a Sydney pub. Police believe the device was intended to blow up the Mill Hotel in the south-western suburb of Milperra. Qantas is reportedly edging closer to a deal with Emirates to transform its struggling international business. The 'Financial Review' says Qantas is in late-stage discussions with the Dubai-owned carrier on a massive codeshare agreement. Under the deal, it's understood Qantas would begin flying to Dubai then rely on its new partner to transfer passengers to Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Julia Gillard will visit a special-needs school today as she holds out hope about the future of her National Disability Insurance Scheme. The Prime Minister has again hit out at the nation's conservative premiers, accusing them of failing people with disabilities. Yesterday, the leaders of WA, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria opted out of trials for the disability scheme. They wouldn't put forward the those relatively small amounts of money to get it done for their people in their states. The premiers want more money to set up the policy. It's claimed Colorado's alleged cinema gunman sent a journal outlining his plans to a psychiatrist. Police say the diary contained the detailed plot to kill people, including haunting drawings. It was sent nearly two weeks before Friday's massacre in which 12 people lost their lives. But the diary apparently went unnoticed in a university mailroom. Finance news now.

To our region yesterday, it was all red on European Time for sport. The AFL has been urged to implement a three-strikes concussion policy which would see Crows forward Kurt Tippett banned for the rest of the season. Player agent Peter Jess wants a safety first approach taken with players who suffer multiple concussions. But it's likely Tippett will miss just a week despite suffering three bad head knocks in the last five weeks. We won't rush the player and in consultation with the experts we'll make the correct decision for him. I'm sure he's going to play some really good footy again for us this year. Tippett will be replaced by Taylor Walker for this weekend's clash with Geelong. Rabbitohs full-back Greg Inglis will miss the next three matches after his dangerous contact charge was downgraded at the NRL Judiciary last night. Souths had hoped to cut the suspension from five matches to one for Inglis's hit on Dean Young. It was better news for the Broncos with Ben Te'o cleared to play against the Eels on Monday after his high-tackle charge was downgraded. 14-time gold medallist Michael Phelps says he's ready to put it all on the line for one last time at the London Olympics. Phelps is retiring after the Games and wants to win another seven gold medals to cap off a amazing career. Meanwhile, boxing icon Muhammad Ali is in London and shared the stage with another global sporting icon - David Beckham at a sports award night. Time for a check of your weather right now.

Australia's Olympic team has closed ranks around Leisel Jones after unflattering photos emerged of the swimmer at training. For the latest, let's go back to Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew in London. Eddie, what support is Leisel receiving? Yes, Kochie, I know there has been a very strong reaction to the publication of these photos since they appeared around 24 hours ago there. It has been the same here. All of our female Olympians rallying around Leisel Jones. In terms of how she is doing her coach said she is competitive. She is not here for a holiday as some people seemed to make out. Nick Green, our Olympic boss also lashed out saying it is disrespectful for a four time Olympian to be treated this way. And the boxer, Naomi LeFisurasmun, the only female boxer said this. It is all about how you perform. She's here. She's qualified. weight or body composition I don't think with her performance. has anything to do If she's winning gold medals, knocking her. no-one should really be And the female swimmers who have competed alongside Leisel said she has always had this body shape and it has done her no disservice in the past. And Nick Green has told some of the team to stop whinging? Yes, he had a very busy day. He holds a daily press conference but today's was fairly and directed towards John Steffensen and Josh Ross who are competing not in individual events and only relays. Steffensen has called for the federal government to investigate the selection process. He claims race was an issue before hand. Josh Ross has threat hand. Josh Ross has threatened to pull out. Nick Green said it is un1 welcome distraction. Here is what he said. I have responsibility for the other 408 athletes is seamless to ensure their preparation that happen around the village. and not distracted by other things to the athletes in the team So that's why my suggestion and do what they're here to do - is they get in here and knuckle down represent their country. Putting out a lot of spot fires, Kochie. The vast majority of these athletes, Nick was quick to point out, are focusing solely on competition ask let it distract them. Australia is not the only problem having problems with out spoken athletes. Why has spoken athletes. Why has Greece kicked a member out. A female member, a triple jumper, she made a racist comment directed towards Africans. She hadn't left Greece yet and she was quick to delete her Twitter comment but it was too late, the Olympic committee decided to kick her off the team. It goes to show what an important part social media will play in the games. Our officials have warned athletes to be careful what they say. We see the positive side of that with the comments supporting Leisel Jones but a negative side too. The opening a negative side too. The Opening Ceremony with the festivities, can you tell us anything? I wish I brought a pair of binoculars. We know it starts with a green pastures and moves into a an industrial revolution stage and tells the story of two girls who go on night out defying their parents and travel through a journey of English from the beet lds to the naughtys, through a journey of English music sothat should be interesting. The stadium is lit up. There are people in there who are dummy spectators, I suppose, sworn to secrecy. We have seenth lights and choppers. We are looking forward to fireworks. We have seen people we think are dressed up as beef eaters but it is a long way. I would have hired the Monty Python gang to do the Opening Ceremony, walk by the athletes. I actually interviewed the cast 'Downton Abbey' today and they actually interviewed the cast of going to the ceremony as a 'Downton Abbey' today and they are they are not going in costume going to the ceremony as a family, though, just as every day folk. We will leave the name-dropping there, thank you, Eddy. You picked it up? Doing awful work. Thank you. Scientists in the US have discovered a new wonder drug which they claim could treat Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis - all in a single pill. Sunrise GP Ginni Mansberg joins me now to explain. Good morning. Ginni, this medication sounds too good to be true. Is it? We don't know yet because it is still happening in rats and mice. We do have one early clinical trial in humans but it is basically, we don't know what causes Alzheimer's disease which is bizarre because it is the 6th leading cause of death in Australians. We looked through the brain of people with Alzheimer's and found a protein all over it. Most of the drugs have been targetting the protein. The protein is the result of the Alzheimer's not the cause, let's actually tackle inflammation, it is the cause of Alzheimer's and all the brain conditions. They developed a new drug tackling inflammation, not the protein and the result in the mice are quite amazing. After 11 months they much less symptoms and behaved in a amazing. After 11 months they had way less than Alzheimer's disease and and when they looked at the brain way less than Alzheimer's disease

after it was far less affected. There was one wonder drug deemed to fail. How long do they need to implement the drugs? This is just a case in point because in rats and mice it was looking absolutely fantastic. The first of four big human trials they did. They had to stop it early. No.1, no in the people who took the drugs stop it early. No.1, no difference versus the placebo. No.2 they had swelling in the brain, which didn't happen in the mice and rats. So it tanked. Thanks very much for explaining it. Here is Mel. Dramatic vision has been released of a killer whale attacking its trainer at Sea World in San Diego. The pictures show Ken Peters struggling to get free after the whale took hold of his foot and wouldn't let go. Peters eventually managed to escape with severe cuts and a broken foot. The video was shot in 2006 attacked and killed another trainer four years before a killer whale at the park. as part of a court case It's been released a ruling where Sea World is appealing of the pool with killer whales. that its trainers stay out whales in captivity. In Australia we don't have any the world. But there are more than 40 around So is it time to free them? the Whale Conservation Society. Paul Hodda is with Good morning, Paul. Let's start with these attacks. turn on its trainer? Why would a killer whale In your view? Nobody really knows. They consulted with some of the most well-respected behaviouralests during the process of the hearings and nobody can really tell. The different occasions when killer whales have attacked their have been in different places under whales have attacked their trainers different situations and different animals so no-one really knows. What is the solution? Should they not be kept in captivity? Should they be free? These animals should never be kept in captivity. They live amazing lives and travel amazing distances and complex relationships with other mammals and pods and it can't be replicated in captivity. No should be taken from the replicated in captivity. No more should be taken from the wild. should be phased out. Females can should be taken from the wild. It live 8 a or ninety years but it must be phased out. Is there a purpose for education purposes? You can gain a little information in terms of research and you can add educational programs to the displays you put on but it is really not worth the animals being in captivity. It is a bit of pay back but the critters shouldn't be in there. Anyone who has seen killer whales in the wild can see the ones in captivity are just mammal meat that perform people. We will see how the court just mammal meat that perform for case plays out. Thank you for your views. News is coming up. for her fourth Olympics? Then, is Liesel Jones fit enough

How has everyone reacted? My goodness! Has Hollywood fallen apart? Hollywood is still together, even though there was a 3. even though there was a 3.8 earthquake there so I'm glad I'm New York. The tabloids are having a earthquake there so I'm glad I'm in field day. Everything about their relationship has been speculation but Kristin has issued a very 'Public' heart felt apology naming Rob. The relationship they never confirmed is sudly very confirmed. She said: -- is suddenly very confirmed. Now, the director from 'Snow White' at the centre of this, Rupert Sanders has issued his own statement. He is married. As for Rob potenson, he has sort of taken the high road and staying very quiet. Interestingly in a recent interview with 'Vanity Fair', he weighed in about the subject of infidelty and he said 'The one thing I never got is why do people cheat' Wise words. Pick up the phone or talk to each other rather than Tweet? Just putting it out there. Bizarre. It is swreerd. -- it is weird. I think they're disgraceful. on Leisel Jones. over the swimmer's weight debate. The Olympic chief's outburst join the torch relay Charles and Camilla as a Harry Potter carries the flame. speculation of another cut. Plus, the cost of living fuels for abusing a junior footy referee. Also, the AFL coach suspended Andrew De Silva! (CHEERING AND APPLUSE) his second shot at fame. He's live on (SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # this is Sunrise on Seven. Right across Australia, Kochie and Mel. From Brekky Central, Good morning, again. with Andrew de Silva We're looking forward to catching up 'Australia's Got Talent' last night. after he won Good of him to come in. about Leisel Jones and those photos. with plenty of discussion and debate to speak with Lisa Curry, In about 10 minutes, we're going on the weight debate. and get her view this hour, with Nat. But we'll begin our Olympic coverage Good morning. Nick Green Australian Olympic team boss has angrily told runners John Steffensen and Josh Ross to stop complaining and get on with the job of representing Australia. Seven News reporter Jim Wilson has the latest on the tensions within our running ranks. We're in Tonbridge, just outside of London, and Australia's track-and-field team is in crisis. Two of our highest profile stars, John Steffensen and Josh Ross, have been overlooked for individual berths. Steffensen is sticking to his claims that he was racially taunted over a number of years, as far as competing for Australia, by officials and by other squad members, while Josh Ross says he's in great form, he should be given an individual berth in the 100m. Neither will run the individual events that's despite Steffensen winning the national title. They'll probably opt for Steve Solomon now, who finished third in that race, and the fact that both these athletes It's an embarrassment to the governing body, Athletics Australia, and certainly something the Australian Olympic Committee could have done without and, certainly, our two athletes, Josh Ross and John Steffensen, are disenchanted. about my decision not to run the individual 400m, which I believe is quite evident, is wrong on many levels. And justice will be served and hopefully an independent review, which I plea to the government to do post Olympic Games. My suggestion would be that you get into the Village and you put your head down and your bum up and you just concentrate on your job and that is to run and compete for this country. So just days before the Games begin, Australia's track-and-field ranks are in crisis, two of our biggest stars, Josh Ross and John Steffensen, overlooked for individual berths, in the 100m for Ross, and the 400m individual for Steffensen. For now, it's back to you. And we have some pictures just in now from London of the second full dress rehearsal of the opening ceremony. It's the final chance for organisers and choreographers to get everything just right for the main event, early Saturday morning Australia time. (Kochie: Oh!) And as we count down, team officials have ordered critics to lay off Leisel Jones who's copped questions about whether she's in shape for the Games. More on that with Leaseaea Curry very -- Lisa Curry very shortly. In other news - a major Sydney road has reopened to traffic after a nasty overnight crash. A car slammed into a power pole at West Pennant Hills, blocking Castle Hill Road for several hours. Police believe it rolled before landing on its roof. The impact snapped the power pole and brought down powerlines. Incredibly, the driver walked away with only minor injuries. The father of a WA teenager says his son has been bashed by a gang with baseball bats and hockey sticks for no apparent reason. Jimi Brewer-Joyce is in hospital with bleeding on the brain and hearing loss after the attack south of Perth on Saturday. Who goes around, driving around with baseball bats and that attacking people for no reason? Police are still looking for the attackers. Queenslanders struck down by the flu have been warned to stay home from work as the bad season sweeping the country hits the Sunshine State. For more, Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins us from Brisbane. I think she is well and good this morning. Michelle, doctors say too many people are trying to soldier on some That's right, Nat. They are simply saying stay at home if you feel unwell. So far this year more than 3,300 people in Queensland have tested positive for the flu, which is about 50% more than normal. Health authorities believe the figure is a lot higher than that because of course, not everyone to the doctor to be tested. Many simply just ride it out at home. So because of course, not everyone goes

far, 3 330 people have been hospitalised with 10% requiring intensive care. Some experts are saying they believe this year's flu is more easily transmitted. But fortunately, it doesn't appear to be an extremely severe strain in terms of killing people. So doctors are saying stay at home if you are feeling sicko you don't transmit it to others and also so you don't become severely sick and require hospitalisation. And the world has been given its first look at North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's wife. State TV aired these pictures after weeks of speculation about a mysterious woman joining the leader at public events. The secretive regime won't say how long they've been hitched. There you go, all our questions answered. Still ahead, guilt-free child care. The new survey showing care makes no difference to kids. Thank you, Nat, Wall Street up 59 points overnight.

That was dangerous contact. It was only a minor victory for the Rabbitohs, who were pushing to have the ban for Inglis's brutal shoulder charge on Dean Young cut to one match. Broncos back rower Ben Te'o also had his high-tackle charge downgraded and is free to take on the Eels on Monday. Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson has been banned for four weeks for abusing an official at his son's under-9s footy match. Clarkson pleaded guilty to unacceptable behaviour at a South Metro Junior Football League tribunal hearing last night. The incident occurred less than 24 hours after Clarkson punched a hole in the wall of an MCG coaches' box. The ban won't affect his AFL coaching duties with the Hawks. Competition has already started at the London Olympics Great Britain's women's soccer team downed New Zealand 1-0, courtesy of a brilliant, bending free kick. One of the gold medal favourites, the United States, came from behind to defeat France 4-2. So no Opening Ceremony quite yet but competition has started. It normally does a couple of day early. Why? The football competition is so big you either push it that way and go later. Or go longer? Start it football competition is so big so

earlier. Just saying. The Olympics going longer. But everyone then sits around. It is only the football that needs to be extended. Everything else fits in two weeks. But I like the way you are thinking. Let's go to Nuala with the weather. Hello some Yes, I have got a lot hairier all of a sudden. It is Womble, the hairy-nosed wombat. hairy-nosed wombat. When things are cute, prepare yourself, Bud is a all of a sudden. It is Womble, the

three-month old hairy-nosed wombat. Isn't that outrages? His mum was a victim of a road accident. Meg has been raising him... been raising him.... (voice squeaks) been raising him.... (voice squeaks). You're in trouble. Ready for his feed now? Have his bottle now. Meg here has been feeding this little guy every two hours. The alarm goes off every two hours. It is all about the moisture, in his mum's pouch there would have been oils and natural secretions to keep him moist. Meg has nine wombats at home. She will have this guy for two years before he is ready to be released into the wild... My goodness. While my ovaries calm down, let's look at the weather. Sunrise Weather brought to you by Beacon Lighting's lamp and chandelier sale. With 50% of your second lamp or chandelier. Shop in store or online. One of the things Meg also has to do is to moisturise him. This is outrages. Keep his skin from drying out. He is so beautiful. But he is also a timely reminder to take care on the roads. Meg and the other volunteers, don't want more little Joeies on their hands. I love you! We are here at the university of Sydney's exot pet hospital at Camden. They care for these of pd animals for free. If you have spare animal and you want to make a donation to Spud's welfare. I can't, it hurts. Take one home and look after it. So cute! We wish her all the best. Australia's Olympic team boss has hit out at sections of the media over unflattering photos of swimmer Leisel Jones and suggestions she's not taking her sport seriously. Nick Green says the articles are disgraceful. And I think they're extremely unfair on Leisel Jones and the work she's done for this country at this level. Other Olympians have also come to the defence of the triple Olympic gold medallist. She's qualified. She's here. I don't think weight or body composition has anything to do with her performance. I don't think it's very friendly, it's not very encouraging at this stage in the game. I think it's very un-Australian, to be quite frank. Leisel is set to become the first Australian swimmer to compete at four Olympics. So is it fair that her body is the biggest issue right now? Olympic legend Lisa Curry has a view on this. She joins us now from Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Good morning. Is all this weight criticism fair? Hi, Mel. No, it's not fair, Mel. This is mean and it's cruel and it's unnecessary, particularly coming in three days before she races. Now, the reality of all this is anyone who knows anything about elite sport and the Olympics will know that Leisel is not in the best shape of her career and Leisel would be the first one to admit that. But she in the best shape she be be for first one to admit that. But she is these Olympics and it is different to how she was in Beijing. But at the same time, Leisel is the master of technique. She has the most beautiful technique. She has a drive and glide in her kick that is just amazing. In fact, I used to take my daughters to watch and train with Leisel in Ken more in Brisbane and sit under the pool and watch her technique because what happens on top of the water is different to what happens under the water. She is ready, she laz won 8 gold medals. We as Australians need to support Leisel as we do for all the other athletes at the Olympic Games and more than supporting her, we need to protect her. Because, protect her in a way a woman needs to be protected. Because no woman likes to be seen or written about or photographs in an unflattering way. We need to protect her from that. Mentally, that is a pretty awful thing to do to deal with. Absolutely. I agree. I have seen photos of me and nearly died. But there is a journalist in the 'Age' saying no-one is saying she is fat. What he is saying, is she trim and taught enough and is she in Olympic condition. You yourself say she is not in the best condition has been in. So is it good enough to go to the Olympics? Well, it is good she is not in the best condition she

enough to make the team. It's good enough to compete. Now, in saying all of this, Leisel is an competitor, now, in two days time we are going to see. Because her all of this, Leisel is an amazing

will be in direct proportion to her are going to see. Because her result preparation. So she is going to race. Regardless of how she goes, the whole of Australia will support her. They are right behind her. I hope that she performs really well, she can turn around and stick it up everyone and say, " everyone and say, "See, I can still swim spast fast." Or come away and go, " go, "I have been to my fourth Olympics and done the best I can do said said it is all we can ask. Give it the best they have got. We look at Ian Thorpe at the national trials and he was carrying a bit of weight and no-one said anything about him. It is very, very unfair, the type of headlines following Leisel around. Really quickly, she is a triple gold medalest. She knows her body better than anyone else. Would it affect her focus? She could use this to really drive her. She and her coach only know the times and splits she is doing in training. They know if they are on track or not. She could use this to spur her on and I hope she does. Leisel is a great girl and a fantastic athlete. But let's back off and support our athletes. Lisa, good to talk to you, thanks. See you soon. Meantime, our Olympic team boss has also had some stern words for members of our athletics squad. Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew is in London. Who's Nick Green had a go at? He is really cracking the bhip? He certainly is, Kochie. Nick is in charge of 400 of ouroth athletes. With two days to go he is sorting everyone out. Specifically John Steffensen and Josh Ross from our athletics team. Steffensen has claimed for the last month race has claimed a place in his selection for the Olympics and last Olympics. Steffensen claims he has run fast times recently and he should be given a go but both runners are competing in relays and not individual events. Here is what Nick Green had to say about them today. My suggestion would be that you get into the Village and put your head down and your bum up and concentrate on your job and that is to run and compete for this country. Steffensen is also calling for an dependent review into selections after the Games are over. Behind you is the Olympic Stadium. Another rehearsal? What can you tell us? Yes, exciting. We have just heard the theme song from 'Chariots of Fire' ring out from the stadium. A classic. Yes. When they did the first dress rehearseal a couple of days ago it went until 1:00 in the morning. So we don't think it over. Plenty of lights and fireworks to come. They have told the athletes morning. So we don't think it is

to hot foot it around the stadium, no Dili dal no Dili dallying. They want to get through the 200 nations. A bit of news, volt mort plays a role in Opening Ceremony as does Mary Poppins. Also, Charles and mamilla news, volt mort plays a role in the

They saw the torches meet as they changed from one torchbearer to another. Tomorrow it will go Buckingham Palace and Kate and Wills will come out. I will be following to another. Tomorrow it will go to

their every move. Just before you go, matchue Mitcham's -- Matthew Mitcham photo on the rings causing problems? Yes, it is in a paper on the way they hand out to Tube passengers the 'Evening Standard' but there are very funny shots and Tweets coming out from there. And it is a great incite into what life is like for the athletes into the days leading up it the Games. But certainly a great shot and he is being praised for it here. Thank you, keep us posted. There's growing speculation the Reserve Bank may cut interest rates when it next meets after the release of lower- than-expected inflation figures. Vegetables had the biggest price spike along with furniture and medical services. But domestic holiday travel and accommodation and electronics prices both took a big tumble. The annual inflation rate is now below the RBA's target range. It's also at its lowest level in 13 years. Joining me now is Aussie Home Loans boss John Symond. John, why do inflation figures have such a big impact on interest rates? It will have an impact on rates. I think rates will continue to go down, but, Dave, not for a couple of months. Why? Why will the Reserve Bank hold off? Well the Reserve Bank are happy about inflation. It is good to have low inflation because high inflation forces the cost of living up. When it's low, it gives the Reserve Bank a chance to interest rates. So I think Reserve Bank wants to just see what the Reserve Bank a chance to drop

happens in Europe, because it is interest rates. So I think the

still very unstable there. They to be pretty comfortable where still very unstable there. They seem Australia is at at the moment, unemployment seems to be OK, the housing market is still tough. All in all, we are still in reasonable shape compared, to, certainly any other country. In other words, they want to keep fire power here in case it all falls part? They want to keep something up their sleeve if, in fact, the world does slide. While we have got you, financial services minister, Bill Shorten wants banks to reveal how much they offer in terms of interest rates on lones to customers in -- loans to customers in different suburbs so you can shop around? That is pretty complicated. I don't know how you do that. Do you change it? Do change it? Do banks change it? have been plenty of surveys saying Woolworths and Coles have a change it? Do banks change it? There

different price in one suburb than say a Ritzier suburb They do. Sometimes if you are a low risk with a big deposit and want to borrow $ a big deposit and want to borrow $1 million, the banks might want to take your business and offer you half a per cent cheaper than a struggling person in the suburbs is offered. So, yes, the banks do. Should they reveal it? I think the only people they reveal it to is when you ring up and demand a better deal and hat is what people ought -- and that is what people ought to be doing. That is the bottom line, ask the question. Thank you. The star of the new 'Batman' movie has honoured victims of the Colorado cinema shooting. Christian Bale, who plays the 'Dark Knight', visited victims in a Colorado hospital. He also laid flowers at a memorial dedicated to the 12 people killed in the weekend massacre. NBC reporter Jay Gray is in Colorado. Jay, how important was Christian Bale's visit for the shooting victims? Thank you for your time. Hey, Mel, I think it was very important. Especially with the victims that he visited, both in the hospital and some of the survivors at the make shift memorial just a block from the movie theatre. It's kind of neat. He did it on his own, no shift memorial just a block away

publicity. The only way we found out was some of the pictures Tweeted out by survivors who said what it meant to them. And it did mean a lot. He meant to bring help and hope to this community and all they are going through. He also stopped by and visited with visited with first responders, both police and firefighters on the scene that night. He wanted to make an impact and I think in a lot of he did, Mel. A little glimmer of hope in all this. A baby has been impact and I think in a lot of cases

born to one of the victims. Tell us about that? Yes, it is really amazing. A couple was at the movie theatre that night. The husband was shot and he is in a medically induced coma right now but his wife did have a baby yesterday and are celebrating the birth while watching and waiting for him while did have a baby yesterday and they

he begins the long prauz of heeling. Right now he -- the long process of healing. He doesn't know he has a new baby. His friends and family say they hope he can understand it, but they say it is baby steps for him to recover. How it is going in terms recover. How it is going in terms of how the investigation is playing hout? Big changes in that investigation today. Investigators say they might have writing detailing plans for this attack. They got the information on where this They got the information on where this evidence may be from the shooter himself, the man accused of the killing spree, James Holmes. He apparently told investigators they needed to look at the college where he was studying neuroscience to search and find an unopened package he sent to a psychologist there. They open it and inside there is a notebook with handwritten details about killing people, we are told by sources within law enforcement. We Don't know to this point if there is any connection to the psychologist that was sent to at the school and the subject himself, whether have ever met. Gosh a lot to come out. Thank you for your time, good the subject himself, whether they

Many love a long-haul flight, Beretts is off today. Bring on London. Olympic swimmer Lisa Curry has joined the defence of Leisel Jones over those unflattering pictures taken poolside in London. She says it's extremely unfair and critics need to back off but Leisel could also use the negativity to drive her on. This is mean and it's cruel and it's unnecessary, particularly coming in three days before she races. And our Olympic team boss has told athletes John Steffensen and Josh Ross to knuckle down and focus on competition instead of constantly complaining. And a Greek athlete has been kicked off her country's Olympic team after writing a racist message on social networking site Twitter. Triple jumper Voula Papachristou posted an offensive joke about the number of Africans living in Greece. She's since issued a statement, expressing her heartfelt apologies for the unfortunate and tasteless joke published on her personal Twitter account. But that wasn't enough to stop her being dumped. It's claimed the makers of thalidomide kept saying the drug was safe despite being warned about birth defects. Previously unseen files from within German drug company Grunenthal have been published by Fairfax newspapers. It's claimed the documents showed the company covered up and ignored warnings about thalidomide in the years before the drug was banned in 1961. It caused defects in an estimated 10,000 babies including hundreds of Australians. Australia's battling car industry has been dealt another blow with parts supplier CMI slashing 117 jobs in Victoria. The company has announced it'll will close two factories in Campbellfield and West Footscray because recievers failed to find a buyer. Workers were told at the end of their shifts yesterday. And an Austrian adventurer has taken a stratospheric leap, skydiving from the edge of space. The thrillseeker jumped from 29km above the United States, nearly three times higher than cruising passenger jets. He landed safely near Roswell, New Mexico, after reaching a top speed of 862km/h. That would hurt. Not a bad day at the office. Dropping in near the alleged aliens. What an incredible feat. The AFL has been urged to implement a three-strikes concussion policy which would see Crows forward Kurt Tippett banned for the rest of the season. Player agent Peter Jess wants a safety first approach taken with players who suffer multiple concussions. But it's likely Tippett will miss just a week despite suffering three bad head knocks in the last five weeks. We won't rush the player and in consultation with the experts we'll make the correct decision for him. I'm sure he's going to play some really good footy for us again this year. Tippett will be replaced by Taylor Walker for this weekend's clash with Geelong. Rabbitohs full-back Greg Inglis will miss the next three matches after his dangerous contact charge was downgraded at the NRL Judiciary last night. Souths had hoped to cut the suspension from five matches to one for Inglis's hit on Dean Young. It was better news for the Broncos with Ben Te'o cleared to play against the Eels on Monday after his high-tackle charge was downgraded. Danny Green has farewelled his home-town fans with a crushing victory over American Danny Santiago at Challenge Stadium. Green was totally dominant last night in what was billed as his final fight in Perth. He knocked Santiago to the canvas four times and stopped his overmatched opponent in the fifth round. 39-year-old Green's staying tight-lipped about whether he'll fight again.
