BEIJING (AP) -- Shawn Johnson's smile was a thousand times wider than the balance beam she had just conquered Tuesday night. Finally, it was a golden grin. The world champion made a habit of collecting silver at the Beijing Games, not a bad custom, but not exactly everything she came to China for. She ended her runner-up streak with a beam routine that blew away the field, including all-around champ Nastia Liukin, behind whom Johnson got one of her three silvers. "It's crazy," the 16-year-old Johnson said.

Phelps was the joyous part, of course, a big reason the U.S. team closed out a meet full of world records with yet another in the Olympic 400-meter relay.

The bronzes around the Americans' necks must have been just as tasty. China's triumph Tuesday was as much a vindication as a coronation. It ended a four-year journey built on the failures of Athens, and carried through a crucible of unfathomable expectations. The Chinese arrived at the Beijing Games as such overwhelming favorites that anything less than a spectacular gold-medal performance would not have been enough.
