Today in Athens

Leontien Zijlaard-van Moorsel of the Netherlands wipes a tear after winning the gold medal in the women's road cycling individual time trial at the Vouliagmeni Olympic Centre in Athens on Wednesday.

The Dutchwoman, who won her fourth Olympic gold medal, announced her retirement. "I had pain everywhere today," Zijlaard-van Moorsel said. "Not only from the race itself, but also from the crash. After about 10 kilometres I started to get a bad headache."
