Another piece of Olympic history was made on Saturday, as the west African nation of Gabon won its first ever Olympic medal, with Anthony Obame taking the silver in the heavyweight division of Taekwondo.

He nearly won gold, taking the final match with Italy’s Carlo Molfetta into overtime, with Molfetta winning in a decision after the score remained tied. This first comes in an Olympics full of them, with the first double amputee competing in Oscar Pistorius, the first women of Saudi Arabia, Brunei, and Qatar competing, and many other nations winning their first medals.
