    You probably won't see this in your local newspaper:

    Jin Jongoh of Korea has made Olympic history by not only winning the gold medal in men's 50 meter (Free) pistol twice in a row (2008 and 2012), something never done before, but also by winning gold in both men's air pistol and men's 50 meter pistol at the same games - another first.

    Just FYI.

    Saw the highlights of that one. He got a bit lucky on the free. He was beat but the other dude was a young guy and got bit by his nerves and boogered the last shot. Jin kept his nerves in check, used his experience in big matches, and got the gold. Very impressive.
