And what a way to start! He beat the record by a whole body length!
I saw the end of woman's fencing. America took all three medals. The final bout between the two rivals was okay, but I wish they had shown the more dramatic battles between countries.

Did anyone notice how when they lifted that guy up on the cables and tilted him so that he could run sideways he almost dropped the torch? Seriously though, he is probably the only person ever to run around the ceiling of an arena sideways. It was like watching Super Mario Galaxy.
The irony of the fact that his name was Li Ning was not lost on me, either.
