STAR OF THE DAY

SHAWN JOHNSON

The American gymnastics standout, already with three silver medals in Beijing, finally broke through for her first gold by winning the balance beam, the last event in the individual event finals.

INVENTION OF THE DAY

PRINTING

Using woodblocks carved with Chinese characters, the Chinese invented the process of printing. So well suited to the Chinese language were the blocks that, in China, they weren’t replaced by printing presses until the 19th century.

China invented woodblock printing first on textiles, which began making appearances in China around 220 A.D.

TODAY’S BEST BET

BEACH VOLLEYBALL

Americans Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh go for their second straight Olympic gold medal, taking on a Chinese duo today during NBC’s prime-time coverage, which will start at 8 p.m.

QUOTEWORTHY

“Of course, it is nice to win one of these.”
