Our thoughts are with two Bruins this week, Nick Ekbatani and Lacy Westbrook. Your UCLA family is behind you, here on BN, out in the greater Bruin universe, and support came in all over the Twitterverse.

We are hoping for the best for Nick and Lacy.
Meanwhile, our Olympians are getting ready for London.

We will have a round up of Bruin Olympians as we get closer to the Opening Ceremonies.
Anna Li is preparing, but she is also looking for help to send both of her coaches (her parents) to London. The USA will pay for one coach, but not both.
Thank you so so much for those who have helped!! #GoUSA! #beLIevefundrazr.com/campaigns/cKhL…— Anna Li (@AnnaLi_88) July 16, 2012
