Reader's Digest picks a winner for the cover

Trying to tie a magazine's cover to an event that is weeks away is a nerve-wracking experience for an editor. But sometimes the magic works. 
A great example is the current issue of Reader's Digest, which features diver Jennifer Abel. With her teammate Emilie Heymans, Abel claimed Canada's first medal -- a bronze -- of the 2012 Olympics (weeks after the issue went to press.)The issue also has profiles of an array of contenders, including wrestler Khetag Pliev, boxer Mary Spencer, fencer Phillipe Beaudry, chef-de-mission Mark Tewksbury and the feature on Abel by Malcolm Johnston.
