Singapore First Olympic Medal

Team China (Zhang Yining, Guo Yue and Wang Nan)While I was cooking “Nilagang Baka” last night, I was also watching the finals of the Women’s Table Tennis in the Beijing Olympics 2008. The finals were between China and Singapore. The defending champion was China and Team Singapore was hoping to win their first Olympic Gold medal.

Team China (Zhang Yining, Guo Yue and Wang Nan) won an impressive 3-0 win over Team Singapore (Li Jiawei, Feng Tianwei and Wang Yuegu). Team Singapore made history last Friday after beating South Korea which assured them of winning a Silver medal, Singapore’s first Olympic medal.

Team Singapore (Li Jiawei, Feng Tianwei and Wang Yuegu)It was an intense game since two countries desire for the Gold medal. I am by the way cheering for Team Singapore. I am just a bit disappointed that they did not win the Gold. They seemed a bit weak for Team China. Team Singapore has the skills but they don’t have the right mentality to win. The only way to beat China is to use China’s weakness. China has a great defense and power but Singapore lacked keenness.

These three girls have a bright future in Table Tennis. Let’s just watch them in the next Olympics.
