Modesto's Erin Cafaro, U.S. Women's 8 win Olympic gold

With Modesto's Erin Cafaro in the bow seat, the U.S. women's 8 rowing team won the gold medal today at the Olympic Games in Beijing. The Americans thwarted the Romanians, winners of the gold in each of the last three Olympiads, who were edged out for the silver medal by the Dutch. "We saw Romania push, we saw Netherlands push, but I think we had an answer," a jubilant Cafaro said.
