Divabetic’s Diabetes Rountable inspiration, Serena Williams became only the second woman to complete a career Golden Slam when she won her first singles gold medal Saturday by beating Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 at the London Olympics. This final was so lopsided the only people who were grunting were the audience!
The victory completed a remarkable run of domination by the No. 4-seeded Williams, who lost only 17 games in her six matches. She went 13-0 this summer at the All England Club, where she won her fifth Wimbledon title a month ago.
The career Golden Slam was first achieved by Steffi Graf, who did it when she won the Olympics in 1988 after winning all four major titles. Williams can add the gold medal to her 14 Grand Slam singles championships, the most of any active woman.
Williams was still hopping as she put on her Team USA jacket for the medal ceremony. Then she began to dance.
“I don’t think I’ve ever danced like that,” she said. “I don’t even know where the dance came from.”
These days, no one can match her moves.
