When it comes to sports, we have our differences. What’s the best rivalry in sports? Who’s better: Kobe or LeBron? What’s the greatest individual accomplishment in baseball history? The list goes on…
But if there’s one thing most of us can agree on, it’s that the Olympic Games are awesome. In the weeks leading up to London, SI.com is counting down the top 100 memorable U.S. Summer Olympic moments.
Coming in at #89 is none other than Notre Dame’s own, Mariel Zagunis, who made Olympic history in 2004 by defeating Chinese fencer Xue Tan to capture America’s first fencing gold medal in 100 years.
Check out the SI.com site for more on Zagunis’ Olympic glory (When you visit the site, click each of the photos to learn more).
You might as well go ahead and bookmark it now. SI will be releasing the remaining twenty moments, one per day, beginning on July 7 and continuing until the eve of the Games of the XXX Olympiad.
