Missy Franklin just qualified in eight for the final, but she seemed very cautious, it looks she is saving for the 100 back, though I think itīs Seebhom gold to lose

Chinese and French swimmers will go 1-2, look for Taehwan Park

After at least 40 minutes, they rejected the protest of the epee semifinal and physically escorted Shin from the piste. The crowd gave her a standing ovation as she left.

I don't know how she is going to recover. She is supposed to come back in a few minutes for the bronze-medal match.

What exactly happened in the fencing? :(

ETA: I just read an article that explained it. How could they have three starts of the clock ending in simultaneous touches without a single second running off the clock? And then the German won it on the fourth touch. That sounds like a pretty good basis for a protest.

I'm not sure. If they chose to not measure in smaller increments, time's being rounded up. Thus Shin's job was to keep Heidemann from scoring for one second (an advantage she got because of a coin toss) which she failed to do four times in a row. I do feel sorry for Shin, but that's my understanding of the situation.

Looks like all the audience in fencing arena is cheering for Shin. She's getting more and more applause when she scores.
