Another exciting day of Olympic action in the books and here are your California related results (after the jump) for the 10 Golden Bears (plus one coach) in action as well as links to some of the already available highlights (some of the higher profile ones won't be available online until after NBC's west coast primetime coverage).
So stay away spoiler-phobes (though we won't tell you how Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin (not yet a Cal commit), or the US Women's Gymnastic team did today).
