carol huynh canada's first gold medal

Canada, you've got gold. Yesterday, wrestler Carol Huynh won Canada's first gold medal at the Beijing Olympics: Canada's Huynh grapples to gold. That kicks ass. Her win is considered something of an upset, defeating defending three-time world champion and Athens silver medalist Chiharu Icho of Japan.

The five-foot-one Huynh is a three-time world championship medallist (silver in 2001, bronze in 2000 and 2005) and placed 5th at the 2007 world championships. These are her first Olympic games. More here: Golden triumph for Canada. Finally, Canada. Celebrate.
