With Monday night's men's team table tennis gold medal, and the women's team title the night before, China is halfway to a sweep of the top spots in its national sport.

China defeated Germany in the men's final, which requires teams to play a mix of singles and doubles matches. Wang Hao and Ma Lin each won their singles matches easily, and then Wang Hao went on to win the doubles with partner Wang Liqin.

On Sunday, the women's team denied rivals Singapore an Olympic gold medal, with a 3-0 victory.

The singles competition for the women started Monday, and for the men it begins Tuesday. Anything less than gold will be a disappointment, and China has the talent to sweep all three medals on both sides.
