STAR OF THE DAY

OKSANA CHUSOVITINA

The 33-year-old, partaking in her fifth Olympics, showed that women’s gymnastics isn’t entirely reserved for the young pixies. Competing for Germany in the individual event finals, Chusovitina — who has a 9-year-old son and is 10 years older than any other women’s gymnast this year — earned a silver medal.

INVENTION OF THE DAY

Biological pest control.

As early as 304 A.D., the Chinese documented instances of controlling the insect population to protect crops and plants.

The first example, was when farmers used huang gan ants to safeguard citrus fruit trees.

TODAY’S BEST BET

BEACH VOLLEYBALL

Americans Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, winners of 106 consecutive beach volleyball matches, go for No. 107 in the Olympic semifinals during NBC’s “live” prime-time coverage tonight.

Of course, here in the Pacific time zone, viewers will continue to get nothing but tape-delayed action.

QUOTEWORTHY

“An Olympic medal is an Olympic medal. Now I have the full collection.”
