Mexico Defeats Brazil To Win Olympic Gold Medal In Men's Soccer 2-1
"Before the start of the men's soccer gold medal match at the London Olympics, conversation tended toward two topics. The first was the shocking truth that Brazil had never won a gold medal in its signature sport. The second was the absence through injury of Mexico's Giovani dos Santos. Logic seemed to dicate that the latter fact would take care of the former reality.
It didn't take long for Mexico to turn that line of thinking upside down en route to a 2-1 win, clinching the first gold medal in soccer in its own history. In the 29th second of the game, Mexico striker Oribe Peralta capitalized on a Brazilian turnover to open the scoring with a spectacular goal."
And of course Google made a doodle for the closing ceremony of the 'London Olympic Games 2012' tonight, which will occur at 02:00 Monday morning here in Thailand. Coverage here in the Land of Smiles has been phenomenal, since at any time I was able to watch any one of eight channels showing Olympic events.
