Germany's Oksana Chusovitina provided one of the feel-good moments of the Games with her second-place performance on vault. At 33, she was double the age of many of her competitors, and Beijing was her fifth Olympics. Her silver was her first individual Olympic medal in more than 16 years at the top of the sport.
