Michael Phelps, Jordyn Wieber: Redemption!
Gone were Jordyn Wieber’s tears, and the running mascara, magically replaced by an impish smile and a playful bite on an Olympics gold medal.
Gone too was Michael Phelps' silver medal snarl, replaced by a post-relay war whoop.
It was Redemption Tuesday at the Summer Olympics.
Two days ago, when Wieber missed her chance at the all-around gold in women’s gymnastics, it was cause for outrage. A travesty,some suggested.
Actually more like a tragedy. As in Act I.
