KAYLA HARRISON ADVANCES TO FINALS IN 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES!!!

Team USA's Kayla Harrison defeated the No. 1 ranked fighter in the 78 kg division, Mayra Aguiar of Brazil in a scrappy match that ended with Harrison catching her opponent in an arm bar to force submission. Harrison now moves on to the Final Round to take silver or gold. A gold would be an historic victory as the United States has never won an Olympic gold in judo. Harrison now fights Great Britain's Gemma Gibbons, who just defeated World Champion Audrey Tcheumeo of France.

KAYLA WILL FIGHT GEMMA GIBBONS, GBR, FOR GOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 10:00AM CST
