Muchas gracias Vivi Ruano y Anabel Medina por los partidos tan formidables como el que tuvísteis contra China y muchísimas felicidades por esa Medalla de Plata tan merecida.

Rhythmic Gymnastics (final): Almudena Cid (Spain) - For ever

Basketball: Becky Hammon (Russia)- an american woman in Russia with no complex (well done!)

The Olympic Spirit: Joanna Hayes

Watching the Osaka Athletics World Championships I miss a great athlete I discovered at watching the Olympic Games in Athens, Joanna Hayes. I remembered the 1st round 100 m. Hurdles: during the race an athlete fell on to the floor, and Joanna run to her immediately after winning to see how well she was before celebrating her victory; I knew then she was a wonderful person too.

This video (link on the name) is the final, of course she won the Gold Medal; if you find the video I'm talking about in internet I'd appreciate you posted.
