Video - China take team table tennis gold
China won the women's table tennis team event to overtake their previous best of 32 Olympic gold medals.
Guo Yue and Zhang Yining beat Singapore 11-8 11-5 11-6 with President Hu Jintao watching from the stands.
They picked apart second seeds Singapore with near-flawless execution, dishing out shots to the edges and corners of the table.
Singapore, with three former Chinese athletes, secured their first Olympic medal since 1960.
South Korea beat Japan 3-1 3-1 3-0 in the bronze-medal match.
Aiming to beat the previous gold tally, China have fielded 639 competitors in Beijing, compared to the 407 they sent to Greece.
"Most of the Chinese competitors fully displayed their abilities to achieve good results on home soil," said Cui Dalin, China's deputy chef de mission.
"We are especially pleased by our athletes in judo, shooting and weightlifting. But every single medal is meaningful in its own way and won through painstaking efforts by our athletes."
However, he cautioned: "Generally speaking, Chinese athletes are not strong contenders in many events in the second half of the Games."
