As I predicted, Wu Jingyu brought gold to China for the Featherweight Division. Our very own Mark and Diana Lopez brought home a silver and bronze for the light weight divisions. Did you see any of Mark's matches? That man may have the fastest legs in Taekowndo. Congratulations to Team USA on 2 medals so far. We have one fighter left to try for gold.

In case you didn't know, the Olympic Tae Kwon Do is broadcast live over the internet. You can go to nbcolympics.com and select the sport you want to watch. Unfortunately, to watch it live you must do what I am doing right now, and be awake at 2:30 a.m.! It's been good stuff. The 49kg Chinese fighter Wu Jingyu is a strong contender for Gold. I've seen more axe kicks to the head from her than all the other matches combined!
I am watching Charlotte Craig's 3-2 loss to Venezuela. It was close, and a couple of shots should have gone her way. Tough match. We still have the Lopez family to look to. Maybe they can bring home some hardware!
