Greetings! Welcome back from the Olympic holiday! ... er, make that “the Obon holiday.” If you're anything like us, however, you spent a good deal of this past week following all the excitement in Beijing. So you'll be glad to know that not only is there another full week of Olympic competition in Beijing to look forward to, but there's also another week of the WordMaster's own Olympic special to enjoy as well!

So let the Games continue!
