Discus thrower Jesus Parejo, 31, throws during a practice session in Caracas May 21, 2012. Socialist-run Venezuela has been unable to replicate the Olympic glories of political bedfellows Cuba, China or the old Soviet Union. Yet there is no lack of enthusiasm among the 60 or so athletes heading to the London Olympics with the dream of adding to the South American nation's gold medal tally of one. Parejo is trying to reach the mark to attend the Olympic Games in London. Picture taken May 21, 2012.
