As some of the water bear events are starting to wrap up (see LEastCoastBears' results and highlights post here), we are beginning to see more land bear action in the Olympics. After the water bears contributed significantly to Cal's medal count, as Cal Athletic Director Sandy Barbour has been Tweeting (we are leading the Pac-12 with nine), we will surely see the land bears' might in the coming days. Keep an eye on these events today:
