Swiftbot leaps to make the basket.  He's coming along nicely but young Tom Swift is still wishing his robot could play just a bit better.  After all, the robot Olympics will be starting tomorrow.   He really wanted Swiftbot to win.  Especially against Andy Foger's entry.  When the kids arrived at the event, they were greeted by protesters from the TRB -- a terrorist group who rejected technology.  But that didn't discourage Tom.  Security was really tight and there was no way that TRB could get into the Olympics.  So he concentrated on Swiftbot and the games.  But what was really going on around here?  More than you can imagine.
