Royal wedding gives Luxembourg turn in spotlight
LUXEMBOURG (AP) - The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg doesn't get a lot of turns in the spotlight.
It's an independent country tinier than Rhode Island, the smallest US state, and it would fit inside Germany, its neighbor to the east, 138 times with room to spare.
It won no medals at the 2012 London Olympics; its best performance ever was one lone medal in the 1952 Helsinki Games, a gold in the men's 1,500 meters.
But this week is Luxembourg's turn to shine.
