U.S. softball beats Japan in extra innings 4-1, into final - 2008 Olympics - SI.com: "After losing in the morning to the U.S., Japan beat Australia 4-3 in 12 innings to secure a spot in the gold medal match. The Aussies were left with the bronze.The pitcher from AUS is Tonya Harding. She is a UCLA grad. I helped to lead a cheer in right field for her. U-C-L-A, U.C.L.A., UCLA - go Tonya!
On the way home we peeked into the baseball venue and the score was still 0-0 late in the game.
The basketball venue, like the Water Cube, changes colors.
In the morning, we are up early to get to the 10-K open water swim for the men.
In today's women's 10K it was a Russian and then two Brits. The Brits have been impressive in the swimming events.
Beijing has the first ever 10-K open water swim races in Olympics. Well, if you don't count when the regular swimming was in the open water. These will be the longest races.
I predict that the USA guy swimmer will be on the podium in the 10K swim.
