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.
