razil's Felipe Kitadai, who won a bronze medal Saturday in the men's 60-kilogram judo division, is fighting to get a replacement medal after he broke his bronze in the shower. Kitadai was reportedly carrying the medal everywhere, "took it with him to the shower as a joke, then dropped it while trying to keep it from getting wet." The medal itself is dented, and the string that allowed Kitadai to wear the prize around his neck is broken. The International Olympic Committee is under no obligation to replace the broken medal.
