China wins 2nd straight Olympic gold in gymnastics

Their closest rivals were still on the floor competing when the Chinese whipped out five big gold stars and held them up in the shape of their flag.

Why wait?

The Chinese won their second straight Olympic title in men's gymnastics and third and in four games in a rout Monday, making fools of everyone who wrote them off after a dismal performance in qualifying.

This is the Chinese side of things, pretty much. The one I plugged from CTV was only just the beginning. This is more in-depth, more meat.

London 2012 Olympics: Taiwan’s Tai downs Montero to advance

Taiwan’s Tai Tzu-ying won her group yesterday in the women’s singles badminton competition to advance to the 16-player elimination round, where she immediately faces a daunting challenge.

The 18-year-old, currently ranked 13th in the world and seeded 10th in London, won her three-player group as expected by defeating Victoria Montero of Mexico 21-6, 21-10.

Tai had previously defeated Anu Nieminen of Finland, also in straight games, to finish atop her group with a 2-0 record and book a spot in the knockout stage.

In her next match, she faces third seed Li Xuerui, one of the three Chinese players expected to sweep the medals in the event.

Olympics-Swimming-Sun shines on a stormy day


Not going to lie, I just wanted to post this picture.

(Reuters) - Sun Yang was stripped down to the waist and halfway through his post-race media interviews when he had to stop and scrunch his fists to his eyes to prevent a teary flood of emotion.

The first Chinese male swimmer to win an Olympic gold medal had arrived poolside with an air of studied nonchalance, headphones clamped over his ears and goggles on, but it did not take long for the composure to break.

Three minutes and 40.14 seconds to be precise, just 0.07 outside of the world record for the 400 metres freestyle set by Germany's Paul Biedermann back in the bodysuit days when technology boosted the times.

Sun looked up at the big screen and erupted. Mission accomplished.

He was also tied with Park for silver in the 200 free and just lead the 800 freestyle relay to the first Chinese men's relay medal ever in the Olympics. Next up, 1500 free!

China swimmer Ye Shiwen clean, says BOA boss Moynihan

Teenage Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen is not a drug cheat, the British Olympic Association's chairman has said, after a US coach cast doubt on her world record-breaking swim.

Lord Colin Moynihan said Ye, 16, had passed drug tests, was "clean" and deserved recognition for her talent.

Ye smashed her personal best by at least five seconds in the 400m Medley.

Senior US coach John Leonard said her performance was disturbing and hinted that doping could have been involved.

Mr Leonard, executive director of the World Swimming Coaches Association, said the performance reminded him of the East German women swimmers in the 1980s, who were doping on a systematic basis.

Olympics: U.S., China medal race turning ugly in a hurry

The gloves are off and any pretense of civility is gone from the Olympic rivalry between the United States and China. The race to win the medal count got ugly fast.

"Olympic sport is part of the culture war," Chinese sports executive Wei Jizhong said in an interview with The Denver Post. "In the culture war between China and the U.S., in the culture part, China is very weak. USA always is leading. In culture, you have theater, music; China cannot win. The only way China can compete with the USA is sports."

Be that as it may, China is still leading the gold medal count. Going by experts, that's the important factor in the medal standings. Medal table

HK's Wong through in badminton

He's the one in white

Olympics: Hong Kong badminton player Wong Wing-Ki is through to the knockout stages of the men's singles event. He overcame France's Brice Leverdez 21-11, 21-16 for his second win in a row. Wong was strong with his smashes and got on a 11-2 run in the first set.

Wong said he knew the Frenchman would make mistakes under pressure and all he had to do was to control tempo.

Wong beat China's "Super Dan" Lin Dan at the Denmark Open last year. He said he's confident about staging another upset in the Olympics against third-seed Chen Long, his next opponent. Wong said all the pressure will be on Chen, not him.


Giving some appreciation to the Hong Kong athletes, too!!
