Serena Williams claimed a new victory at the 2012 Olympic Games on Saturday, winning a gold medal in singles. After defeating Maria Sharapova, Williams, according to USA Today, delivered a victory dance, known as the crip walk.

In what can only be termed complete domination, Williams served three aces in the opening game, broke Maria Sharapova's service in the second and never looked back in rolling to her first Olympic tennis singles championship, 6-0, 6-1.
Williams, the fourth seed, won the first nine games over the third-seeded Russian on a breezy afternoon on the same Centre Court grass where she captured her fifth Wimbledon championship last month. Since losing to Sharapova in the Wimbledon final in 2004, Williams has beaten Sharapova eight consecutive times.
