Mariel Zagunis and Sada Jacobson

<b>BEST:</b> The screams heard 'round Beijing<br>
<br>
Is there anyone who didn't <i>hear</i> Mariel Zagunis wrest the gold from U.S. teammate Sada Jacobson on Saturday? In reality, Zagunis swiftly defeated her fellow American, 15-8, during the individual sabre matchup. It's been awhile since we watched "Jurassic Park," but we're fairly certain that the 23-year-old fencing dynamo's battle cry -- a high-pitched screech following each point won -- is one and the same as that of the velociraptor.
