Olympics: Meet the first American woman to grab a gold medal in judo

Gold: Kayla Harrison (United States)
Silver: Gemma Gibbons (Great Britain)
Bronze: Mayra Aguiar (Brazil), Audrey Tcheumeo (France)

History was made for the United States in Judo, as Kayla Harrison became the first American woman to win a gold medal.

The only other American to medal in the event is current Strikeforce champion Ronda Rousey.
Harrison has become one of the best stories of these Olympics, coming back from all that she went through just to make it to London. An Olympic gold medal is just the icing on the cake.
