Defiance 

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

If you missed it last week, and you probably did because it’s about women’s fencing, here’s one of the sadder Olympic stories. South Korean fencer Shin A Lam seems to have been robbed by the Olympic judges, and while her team filed an official protest, she stood defiantly on the piste. While she ultimately did not win a medal (losing in the bronze medal match after this heart-wrenching defeat), she is now part of a tremendous photo.
