Mariel Zagunis retains her Athens 2004 Olympic gold medal winning title, defeating her teammate Sada Jacobson in the gold medal bout 15-8, and 2006 world champion Becca Ward narrowly beating her Russian rival Sofiya Velikaya 15-14 won the Bronze.

I'm hoping this is a sign of the great things to come from our great country during these games.  If you missed the opening ceremonies... you missed one of the most amazing events of our lifetime and should really check it out.  The vast number of performers, the elegance with which they performed, the themes and messages... and of course the fireworks were at times awe inspiring.

You can also checkout NBC's site dedicated to the Olympic games in Beijing.  Not only can you get all of the standings and check the schedule of events, there are fantastic videos and pictures!  When you get to the site you may have to search "opening ceremonies".  I have found 3 videos so far that combined show the entire event...  truly worth the time to watch!
