You'd expect to find elephants in the African Bush, but perhaps not in the UK, and certainly not at this year's Olympics to
be held in London, July 27 - August 12, 2012. Nonetheless, training for
the baton hand-off are two female African elephants, 20-year old "Five"
and "Latabe," 19. Hailing from the West Midlands Safari Park, these two
lively and affectionate pachyderms were ready for their "close-up" on the world's
largest international stage.
