Gotta' love the 33-year-old silver medalist -- who's a Mom!

Don't want you to think I'm anti-Mom after that last post . . . and here's an especially inspiring Mom: Oksana Chusovitina.

Here's a story about the gymnast's departure from Russia, where there was no capacity to treat her son's leukemia. Germany took her in, and today she won a silver medal for them. Read the NYTimes coverage here.

Don't forget Dara Torres, US olympic swimmer, age 41, who won three silver medals this summer!
