Serena Williams Takes Olympic Gold Over Maria Sharapova

Bringing home more gold for Team USA, Serena Williams conquered her competition in women's singles tennis at this year's 2012 Olympic games in London, England on Saturday (August 4).

The 14-time Grand Slam singles champion took a victorious win against Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova with a 6-0, 6-1 win behind 10 aces and only seven unforced errors.

This Olympic win gives the 30-year-old athlete the honors of being the second woman to ever complete a career Golden Slam, which of course comes just weeks after she pulled in her fifth Wimbeldon title.

Miss Williams showed her excitement by ecstatically doing a little dance (watch below!) before taking the podium in her Team USA jacket to accept her first singles gold medal.

Overjoyed at her impressive win, the Serena told the press, "I didn't expect this. I can't even ... Oh my gosh – I have a gold medal in the singles! I never thought ... Wow," adding, "I didn't think it could get any better than winning Wimbledon. You see how happy I am I don't even know what to do."

Hoping for another win, she will join her sister Venus Williams in the doubles semifinals later this afternoon.
