Shin A-Lam, of South Korea!  After losing a close fencing match, she spent an hour refusing to leave the piste and crying about it.  For her display of sportsmanship, she will receive a special medal for her “aspiration to win and respect for the rules.”

(Incidentally, she lost the match for the bronze as well.)
