Olympic cheerleaders are entertaining crowds at the basketball, beach volleyball, and indoor volleyball venues.  The London organizing committee hired the English 'Crimson Heat ' cheer squad as the official cheerleaders of the 2012 Games.  Hearkening back to the days of an amateur Games, the squad is not being paid for their services. - By Andrew Dubbins, Yahoo!
