Chinese Olympic Champions 2008
Result Highlights in Beijing

EXCITING NEWS
Chinese Olympic champions 2008 collected altogether 100 medals in Beijing – inclusive of 51 gold, 21 silver and 28 bronze – the best result ever since 1984. Our strength is obvious in certain games, such as:

Table Tennis
Chinese athletes captured ALL gold medals in ALL categories, including ALL medals of gold, silver and bronze from both Men’s and Women’s Single.

Diving
Chinese Dream Team of Diving captured SEVEN gold medals out of the eight categories.

Artistic Gymnastics
Chinese athletes captured NINE gold medals including the historical first gold for Women’s Team Competition.

Weightlifting
China probably produces the most weightlifters in the world. We captured EIGHT gold medals including four from men and four from women.

Zero Breakthroughs
Apart from China’s traditional outstanding achievements, Chinese athletes managed a number of breakthroughs in Beijing and gained several Olympic gold medals from rare areas such as Archery, Boxing, Canoe/Kayak, Rowing and Sailing.

Weak Areas
Swimming is relatively a weak area for Chinese. In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, China won only one gold medal from Women’s 200M Butterfly. However ZHANG Lin managed to obtain one bronze medal in 400M Freestyle – the first ever medal in Men’s Swimming.

Track & Field is another area which is traditionally dominated by the western world. In 2008 Beijing, China only acquired two bronze medals from Women’s Hammer Throw and Women’s Marathon.

SAD NEWS
As China is generally weak in Track & Field games, star runner Liu Xiang was our only gold medal hope in 110M Hurdle. Sadly he gave up in the last minute due to foot injury and the expectations from his 13 billion compatriots became bubble.

China’s Diving Dream Team of achieving a grand champion of eight gold medals in all categories also became bubble. Leading diver Zhou Luxin led until the final round was defeated by Australian diver Matthew Mitcham. Matthew in his last dive achieved a whopping 112.10, won the gold medal by only a difference of 4.8 points. China only managed to win seven out of eight categories.
