All the major medals were taken by the host Chinese team in the Olympic Table Tennis. Full Results are available at ITTF.Com

US Womens Team Wang Chen and Gao Jun fell one match short to rivals S.Korea while contending for a bronze medal, while lone US Men's rep David Zuang of NJ lost a 7 game thriller to the African #1 in a televised early round men's singles match.  

While TV coverage in the USA was mostly limited to afternoon and late-night timeslots, as usual the sport was heavily viewed elsewhere in the world, especially Asia and Europe, with record audiences of hundreds of millions viewing in the host country in particular.

Also popular was streaming video of matches, both live and archived.  If you have a high speed connection, look for matches archived at NBCOLYMPICS.COM or UniversalSports.com
