    Ma Long was the reason why I started to play this beautiful sport in 2011.
    I really loved his playing style, he developed so much during these years.
    What an amazing moment seeing him winning the Olympic gold medal for the second time.
    This is the GOAT

    I can't believe he actually did it. I expected Ma Long to just chill after his knee operation, instead he comes back and wins WTTC and Olympics, madness. That 'chole' after he won the 3rd game was scary.

    Poor, poor Fan Zhendong. "Why couldn't I be born like 5 years later and not compete with this guy" is what I'd be thinking if I were him

    I am so elated that The Dragon Dictator Captain Long reach Double Grand Slam status

    But I am confused how and why FZD became a little timid in that 6th game

    Most of the "Ma Long is not the GOAT" arguments before this were largely trolling or emotional or based on the belief he is competing in a significantly weaker era. By the numbers, there really is no argument. But he took Dima's best and that is the best Europe had to offer no doubt. The two Olympic golds shouldn't change anyone's minds because he was already the man.

    Didn't become timid - took more risks and didn't convert. After someone has beaten you so badly so often, it becomes a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

    I've run into a few, especially older swedes that understandably have held that belief, with those arguments, emotion and I guess nostalgia. But this has put the nail in the coffin where it's hardly even possible to use those arguments, this achievement is too visible and too great.

    It wouldn't surprise me that after the Olympics are over that Ma Long retires. I mean there's literally nothing left to prove. If he wants to, I just see him at some point taking over Liu Guoliang's place because the man is pure TT genius.

    While the CNT has a lot of their old guys as coaches, it's not always the very best becomes good coaches. We will see of course.

    Pretty happy with the results overall.
    As expected Ma Long first (cause he is still the king), FZD second, Dima third (awesome surprise). Wished Hugo Calderano was closer to the top although..

    At first I was worried you were calling me out over female players having done it before, haha.

    the Chinese way of choooooing: make it louder from 7-7, make it loudest in last game and stare well at your opponent

    Ma Long was louder than Harimoto. How disrespectful for his own teammate
    Same for Chen Meng

    The disappointment of the tournament in singles events has gotta be the entire JNT then? From most disappointing to least: Tomo out in RO16, Mima no chance against Sha Sha, Kasumi out before medal matches, Koki Niwa's overall uninspired performance.

    I kid you not, the first time I head a noise, I was like where is that coming from - it can't be Dima...
