Not Just Another Saturday Night

From London . . .
David Boudia was appropriately named, as he went up against a pair of Goliaths in the form of Qiu Bo of China and Tom Daley of Great Britain in the men's 10-meter platform diving competition . . . and got the gold medla.  Bo got the silver; Daley, the bronze.
Allyson Felix was again part of the women's 4x400-meter track relay team, as in Beijing, and not only won a gold medal, she won her third for these Games.
Davids Boudia is the first American gold medalist in platform diving since Greg Louganis in 1988.  Allyson Felix is the first American woman to win three gold medals in track in one Olympiad since Florence Griffith Joyner, also in 1988.
Wow! :-)
