Olympic joy for Montenegro

I spent part of my day off watching the LONDON OLYMPICS on television, capping my viewing with a stirring victory by newcomers to the Games.
MONTENEGRO beat SPAIN, 27-26, to advance to the WOMEN'S HANDBALL gold-medal final against reigning world champions Norway.
A former portion of Yugoslavia, Montenegro have only been an Olympic nation since 2007.
Now, the Balkan nation is assured of its first medal.
The thrill of today's match, and the emotion of the Montenegrins, provided evidence of why we cherish the Olympics.
