Olympic Gold in Beach Volleyball

In case you missed it, our girls beach volleyball team of Kerri Walsh and Misty-May Treanor won the gold last night! The torential rain did not discourage them and they pulled off another victory. This is the first time any beach volleyball team has won back to back gold medals in this event and the first time a team has won every single game in the Olympics. (14 total) The girls have also not lost a game for about a year, too! Now that is what I call an incredible story! And Kerri Walsh is known as "Six Feet of Sunshine" - what a great nickname!

There's been many great stories this year. Dara Torres in her fifth Olympics at the age of 41 and winning two silvers. Our girls gymnastics team came away with many medals. And the gymnast from Germany who won a silver on vault - at the age of 33!

I no longer feel so old...
