American Gold - Woot!

American shooter Virginia Thrasher has won the first gold medal of the Rio Olympics.

Thrasher held off two Chinese shooters to bring hom the first gold medal of the Games.
The 19-year-old American edged out China's Du Li, gold in Athens in 2004, with an Olympic-record score of 208. Defending Olympic champion Yi Siling, also of China, took the bronze medal.
Well done, Virginia.  America is proud of you, very proud.
