    GOLD Medal Match


    Zhang Jike bt Wang Hao 4-1 (18-16, 11-5, 11-6, 10-12, 13-11)




    BRONZE Medal Match


    Dimitrij Ovtcharov (GER) bt (TPE) Chuang Chih-Yuan 4-2 (12-10, 9-11, 8-11, 13-11, 11-5, 14-12)


    Having lost in this final, Wang Hao is the Silver medalist in THREE consecutive Olympics: 2012, 2008, 2004. Having won both the World Cup and World Championship titles, Wang Hao still needs an Olympic Gold medal in order to earn a Grand Slam, which would place him within the league of such legendary players. Now such achievement seems quite elusive, something nears to impossibility.

    MEN'S TEAM EVENT

    BRONZE Medal Match: HONG KONG vs GERMANY ~ Wed 8 Aug - 11:00

    GOLD Medal Match: CHINA vs KOREA ~ Wed 8 Aug - 15:30


    MEN'S TEAM - SEMIFINALS (2012-08-06)

    CHINA bt GERMANY 3-1
    - Ma Long - Dimitrij Ovtcharov 3-1 (12-10, 5-11, 11-9, 11-1)

    - Joo Saehyuk - Jiang Tianyi 3-0 (11-3, 11-6, 11-8)
    - Oh Sangeun/Ryu Seungmin - Leung Chu Yan/Jiang Tianyi 3-2 (5-11, 11-6, 11-2, 11-13, 11-9)


    Timo Boll
    Below his normal level in the early stages of the tournament and beaten in the first round of the Men’s Team event, when facing Sweden, by the veteran 46 year old Jörgen Persson, and stopped by Adrian Crisan (ROU) in the quarterfinals of individual event, Timo Boll dazzled on the tenth day of action. He beat the man of the moment; he beat the man crowned Olympic champion four days earlier and the current World #1; he beat Zhang Jike in four games in the semi-final duel against China. Though his win was not enough to save the GER team, but it's definitely good for him in regaining his confidence and prestige after his disappointing days.

    CHINA bt SINGAPORE 3-0
    - Ma Long - Gao Ning 3-0 (11-4, 11-5, 11-6)

    As predicted, table tennis powerhouse China created clean sweep 4 Olympic golds plus two silvers in individual event, what a total dominance.

    Yesterday I watched the replay of the match between Ariel Hsing and Li Xiaoxia. At the start of the match, look like the referee took out 3 new ping pong bats. And Li looked at all three and picked one. Then Ariel picked one of the remaining 2. So players can no longer use their own and have to use the one provided by the tournament. Is this new?
