Mariel Zagunis and Sada Jacobson

BEST: The screams heard 'round Beijing Is there anyone who didn't hear 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.
