Olympic Gold

I was up late last night/early this morning and watched some of the Women's Olympic Fencing on USA Network. I was surprised how different the competition was from how fencing is portrayed on TV and in films. There was a lot of wild lunging and wild "swings." It was interesting how close each match was. The USA was able to win all three medals, including the first gold of these games.
Also, there was some wild Badminton action in singles action. The court looks so small to hit the shuttlecock into but so large to cover by yourself. The players I saw were making some incredible shots.
