U.S. sweeps women's sabre in Beijing Saturday, August 09, 2008

Beaverton's Mariel Zagunis (left) probably looked something like this when she won the gold medal in Women's Sabre at the Olympics yesterday. She also won gold at the Olympics in Athens.

I woke up this morning to news that the U.S. women's fencing team swept the medals in Sabre at the Olympics. These were the first three medals for the United States at these games.

You might remember that the team was here in Portland back in April for the National Championships. Two of the three medalists are from the Rose City. Here are some of my pictures from April.
