MoonHunter:
Okay. It is the first medal in my sport we have won in a really long time.  For those that might not of guessed, yes I was a fencer.  I had dreams. I had bad knees.  So now I just watch.

When I can, they seldom if ever televise Fencing, because nobody seems to care.  After all, the last medal in the sport we won was over a decade ago. I just found out about her win today because I wanted to see the point and match totals to see how badly we lost.

ALL HAIL OUR LITTLE HERO!!!!
