伦敦(London)持续十六天的伦敦奥运会(London Olympics)落幕[1]。中国队共获得38枚金牌、27枚银牌、22枚铜牌[2],奖牌[3]总数87枚,排名金牌榜第二、奖牌榜第二。其中,中国选手[4]打破6项世界纪录[5]和6项奥运会纪录[6]。这也是中国代表团[7]在境外[8]参加奥运会的最好成绩。

据中国代表团团长[9]刘鹏介绍,中国队共在11大项中获得金牌,17大项、73小项上获得奖牌。传统优势项目发挥正常。乒羽(ping-pong and badminton)、跳水(water diving)、体操(gymnastics)、举重等传统强项贡献27枚金牌,占金牌总数71%。

帆船(sailing)、击剑(fencing)、拳击(boxing)、跆拳道(Korean boxing)等项目共取得5金7银6铜。特别是游泳(swimming)和田径(track & field)取得明显进步,共取得6金2银7铜,占金牌总数的16%。刘鹏指出,这反应出中国竞技体育[10]发展上取得了成效。

此外,中国队"新老交替,以新为主"[11]的队伍也经受住了考验。刘鹏称,代表团中有62%运动员是第一次参加奥运。

After 16 days, the curtain falls on the London Olympics. The Chinese squad achieved altogether 38 gold medals, 22 silver and 22 bronze medals, a sum of 87 medals. China is ranked second in the chart of gold medals and second in the total number of medals. Chinese athletes broke 6 world records and 6 Olympic records. This is China's best achievement ever in Olympics games that were held outside China.

According to the head of the Chinese delegation, Liu Peng, China achieved gold medals on 11 sport fields. In sports where China is traditionally strong such as ping-pong, badminton, water diving, gymnastics and weight lifting China won 27 gold medals. 71% of China's gold medals were achieved in these events.

In sailing, fencing, boxing and Korean boxing China won 5 gold, 7 silver and 6 bronze medals. A clear improvement was evident in swimming and track & field, where China won 6 gold (16% of the total number of gold medals), 2 silver and 7 bronze. Liu Peng indicated that this demonstrates that the development in Chinese athletics bore fruits.

In addition, the 'transfer of power from old to young' in the Chinese team has been probed in this competition. Liu Peng said that for 62% of the squad this is the first Olympic games.
