Perfect score for China

I salute China for the successful Beijing Olympic Games. What started on a lucky date 08-08-08 ended up for the host getting another lucky number – a perfect score, 100, – for its total medal haul. It has the most number of Olympic champions at 51 gold medalists. It also earned 21 silvers and 28 bronzes.

The new sports powerhouse has bested perennial medal leaders the US and Russia.

I doubt if China could have achieved this feat had it been awarded the hosting of the Summer Games four years earlier in 2004. The added four years gave China time to prepare well to be crowed today as the champion of the 2008 Olympics.
