Can't wait for Paris and BTW I hope that all Chinese athletes NOT wear Mao badges or anything that can be even a little bit construed as "political" by the anti-Chinese ass-wipes like the clown racist Indian judge expressing his bias on twitter.Armoured all the way comrades. You know as well as I do that they will let USA and ilk get away with ANYTHING but put us Chinese under an unfair microscope-but that's reality-but the reality of a China sweeping the medals G/S/B will be sweet and and bitter as ashes for the West and perpetual loser Indians.Hope I live to see it.
 
@manqiangrexue ,

Naim Suleymanoglu, the strongest pound for pound weightlifter - what made him special? Even stronger than Lu on per kilo basis.
He was a medically mild midget (possibly hypochondroplasia). His bone structure was medically abnormal. Lu Xiaojun is the type of weightlifter everyone wants to be; Suleymanoglu was the type of weightlifter who everyone wanted to watch.

Weightlifting is about 2 main types of talent: 1 is bone structure. You want a thick frame with powerful fulcrums and levers. The second is muscle type; you want an abundance of fast twitch muscles over slow twitch endurance muscles. Naim was a midget with incredible fulcrums and levers unseen on any regular person but also had the correct muscle type so he became the best and still holds the highest Sinclair score (pound for pound conversion). Also, in his time, doping was far less regulated so you'll see many categories where the world record is higher than anything in existance today, even from a slightly lower weight class. Lu Xiaojun is known for his endurance at the top of the field, owning the middleweight 77-81kg class from 2009 to now. He's not known to be one of the strongest pound for pound lifters in history. Many Soviets were much higher at the tops of their careers.

I did not realize that there was so much friendship between China and Japan in table tennis. I was aware of Fukuhara but thought that was a one-off. Ito is much stronger. Even so, Coach Ma Lin still offered Ito a training session with Meng Cheng just before the Olympics. And apparently, he travels to Japan sometimes as well. It'd be good to see Japan training the Chinese Judo/wrestling team as well but I have a feeling that they aren't big enough to reciprocate...

The public might like to use the Olympics to settle some national grudges, but the athletes are there competing for the love of the sport.
