LONDON -- Several Ohio Olympians were in action at the 2012 London Olympics. Here's a look at how they fared in their events.

Massillon's Jacob Wukie competed in the individual archery event. Wukie lost in the second round to Baard Nesteng of Norway by just two points. Wukie, who helped Team USA to a silver medal in the team event, however, shot "lights out" in the first round. He scored a near perfect 86 out of 90 points and at one point shot five straight arrows that scored perfect 10s.

Westlake's Margot Shumway will have her chance to row for a medal this Friday. Shumway and her partner, Sarah Trowbridge, finished second in the women's double sculls repechage event. That qualifies them for the medal race.

Ohio State's Zain Shaito was eliminated in the first round of the men's individual foil event losing to Zhu Jun of China. Shaito is competing for his father's homeland of Lebanon. His little sister, Mona, also competing for Lebanon was eliminated in the second round of the women's event over the weekend.

Anna Tunnicliffe of Perrysburg is still on track in the women's Elliott 6m sailing event. So far, her crew has sailed six races in the round robin event and have won four of those and lost two. They are in third place at the moment. The round robin event concludes on August 4.

The women's field hockey team defeated Argentina 1-0 in a rematch of the Pan Am Games. The team includes Ohio's Keli Smith Puzo who is in her second Olympics and back into world class form less than a year after having her second baby.

Cincinnati's Heather Mitts and the women's soccer team march on. Team USA defeated North Korea 1-0.
