When talking about athletes, you must not forget Michael Phelps, an American swimmer. He won a total of 8 gold medals and successfully surpass Mark Spitz, who was also an American swimmer that had held 7 gold medals that he won at 1972 Olympic Games, create a new Olympic record by winning the most medals at a single Olympic. The another surprise is from Usain Bolt, a well-known field and sprint athlete. He breaks 3 world records( 100m , 400m and 400m relay). He is the first man to win all three events at a single Olympic since Carl Lewis in 1984, and the first man in history to set world records in all three at a single Olympic. These two men have a very bright future. Hope to see them in 2012 London Olympic. Oh ya, I almost forgot about another power that could possible challenge the domination of China, Russia and America in the next Olympic Games-- Great Britain. Great Britain was at rank 4 in this game and only 4 golds less than Russia. It seems like there will be a fiery competition among the dominant-countries and the host-country in 2012 Olympic Games. I can't wait!
My lovely home-country, Malaysia only won a silver and was ranked 71 out of 204 countries that participating in 29th Beijing Olympic. Nevertheless, I am so proud of Malaysia. All the athletes had tried their best. Although they didn't win in their match, they won the spirit of Olympic.
If compared to the opening ceremony, the closing ceremony is more simple but magnificent. I've taken "a few"(actually it's quite a lot, haha) photos to share with all of you. I hope you all enjoy these photos. Cheers to Beijing Olympic 2008! Hoho
