LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- The 2012 Olympics kick off in eight days in London.
As we get closer to the games we wanted to shine the spotlight on several of our local athletes who will be representing the USA and southern Nevada.
Kevin West joins us now with a look at boxer Michael Hunter. Hunter missed out on a chance to represent the USA in the 2008 games after a shocking loss in the Americas qualifier. He elected not to turn pro and he'll definitely be one to watch in London.
