China Clinched Record 8 Gold Medals in Table Tennis at Beijing Olympics

China showed overall dominance in table tennis event at Beijing Olympic Games, winning eight gold medals. Chinese men and women earlier confirmed their gold in team events. Later on, Chinese women kept hundred percent success rate in singles two days ago. On the last day of Beijing Olympic, it was men’s turn to prove their dominance in men’s singles. Actually, Jorgen Persson from Sweden was not only player outside China in men’s gold medal round, but he was easily outclassed by Wang Liqin in the singles.

China is always a big name in table tennis, but winning eight gold medals in one single Olympic Games has been something special for the Chinese. In fact, this has been the first time a team sweeps eight gold medals in table tennis in the history of Olympic Games.

Summer Olympics 2008: The Waiting is Over

Yes, the waiting is over for Beijing Summer Olympic Games 2008. From today, football matches started. Good thing is that Brazil won against Belgium. Argentina has won too and I am happy that Messi is playing for Argentina. This should boost their chance of retaining the gold medal. Of course, Barcelona is not happy because Barcelona wanted desperately Messi not to play in Olympics 2008.

Enough of football. In fact, I think that the most attractive disciplines in Olympics are swimming and athletics.

Tomorrow, is the grand opening ceremony of Olympics 2008. So, have a good time and enjoy the games.
