Kathie Lee & Hoda: U.S. Olympic Trials
Some inspiring stories coming from the U.S. Olympic Trials. Nastia Lukin, U.S. gymnast who hurt her back or shoulder and has been trying at a comeback at the age of 22, was doing the uneven bars and missed the bar and fell right on her face. She got up and finished the routine to a standing ovation. Great to see, but she failed to make team. Michael Phelps has qualified in eight events for the London Summer Olympics, which is same amount he did in Beijing Games and he could match the record he set in Beijing. Also, the sprinters who finished in a photo finish have decided to do a runoff to decide the winner.

For her Favorite Thing this week, Sara Haines brought in John Frieda Ocean Waves Texturizing Spray.

Sara is depressed about the possible discontinuation and said when on the beach you spray your hair and it gives it a tousled look.
