Best golden girl 

Kristin Armstrong

Editors' Picks

For once, Boise was ahead of the curve. We've known that Kristin Armstrong was one of the best cyclists around for years. Now, finally, the rest of the world knows it, too. All it took was an Olympic gold medal for the road cycling time trials in Beijing to bring Armstrong the attention she deserves. She came home to a hero's welcome, with hundreds joining her on a symbolic ride through the streets of Boise to honor her accomplishment. No one could help but smile when thoughts turned to Boise's first ever gold medal winner. Good on ya, Kristin.
