Thumbs up to Beijing 2008 website for putting up real-time results! I think the results reporting system on the web is the best I've seen so far in the Olympics.

Yayness! We earned out first medal on the first day of competition.

We were actually expecting to earn two medals for the womens under 48 kg in Weightlifting (just as we did in Athens) but unfortunately - Nurcan Taylan could not defend the title that she's earned back in Athens and did not even finish her tasks.

Thailand just got their first gold in Beijing in 53kg women's weightlifting.

GOLD: THA

SILVER: KOR

BRONZE: BLR

Malaysia has a weightlifter in the 56kg men's Group A final later. Winner of 3 gold medals in Commonwealth Games. Not so much of a chance to medal in Beijing.
