Olympics - Table Tennis - Gold Medal Match

Another day, another Olympic event. This time Jamie and went to see the bronze medal match of the men's singles table tennis. The Chinese are dominant in this sport and as with the women's final both competitors were Chinese. Before the final we saw the bronze medal match, which was won by a European (German), for the first time in 12 years. The gold medal match was between the current world no 1 and the silver medalist at the 2 previous Olympics. Unfortunately for him it turned out to be a hat-trick of silvers as the current world no 1 ran out (literally - see below) a relatively easy winner, taking it 4 games to 1.

More royals in attendance, this time Princes Phillip and Edward, and Sophie Wessex.

I think he was happy to win! As vaulted the wall and ran to the podium to kiss the gold medal step.
