Kayla Harrison makes judo history

Kayla Harrison's goal was simple: Win a world championship and an Olympic gold medal. She got the first in 2010 to become the first U.S. woman in 46 years to capture a judo

world championship. Now she has achieved Olympic glory and become the first American to win gold in judo. -- By Paul Martella
