FLYING SQUIRREL(S)

FLYING SQUIRREL(S)

Watch your head for Flying Squirrels at the London Olympics. There's more than one of 'em.
U.S. Greco-Roman wrestler Ellis Coleman earned that nickname a few years ago because of his risky, signature move of the same name. Pint-sized gymnast Gabby Douglas earned the exact same moniker for the way she seems to fearlessly fly through the air on the uneven bars.
The two Flying Squirrels had a run-in Thursday _ sort of.
"Oh my God, I think he wanted a picture with us today. He's pretty big, right?," said Douglas, asked whether she had met Coleman. "Yeah, I think so."
Turns out the photo never happened, though. Squirrels are hard to catch.
"We had to catch a bus," Douglas said, "so we didn't have time."
