KONG Linglui (1975) China / Table tennis
Kong Linglui was already considered the world's best doubles table tennis player together with fellow countryman Liu Guolang (who won two medals in Atlanta in 1996) when he became the Olympic champion in Sydney in 2000 after overcoming Sweden's Jan-Ove Waldner, the Olympic champion of the Barcelona Games. Thanks to him, China is once again the sport's top nation. He proved this in Australia by winning both the singles and the doubles together with Lui Guolang, while compatriot Nan Wang won both the singles and the doubles together with Ju Li in the women's section of the competition.
