Olympics update: Don't miss the javelin.

I'm usually pretty interested in the track & field events in the summer games, but this year, you don't want to miss the women's javelin event on August 18th at 9:00 pm. I have no idea who will win, but I'm rooting for one plucky contestant from Paraguay---Leryn Franco. She ended up 42nd in the 2004 games, but she's poised to rocket up the leader board to, at least, the mid-30's. She's 5'8", 119 pounds, and 26 years old.

I've included her photo so you won't miss her.
I'm not sure, but I suspect she's pondering her next throw.
