“Xinwen combination” regretted losing the gold medal
Liu Shiwen shed tears several times after the game
Maybe before the game, many people thought it would be a difficult game and expected the defeat of the Chinese team, but when this happened, everything was still so unacceptable.
“Xinwen combination” once took a 2-0 lead. Even when the Japanese combination reversed the big score, Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen still dragged the game into the decisive game. However, in the decisive game, this close and anxious contest turned into an incredible one-sided one.

0-8, in the decisive game of the Olympic final, the Chinese table tennis team made such a score. Even Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen couldn’t accept this reality. Looking at the Japanese players who were celebrating every point, they could only be silent.
In the past, Chinese players usually played the role of leader, but this time, the reversal of identity made Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen at a loss. Also flustered was their coach Ma Lin, who didn’t call any pause from 0-1 to 0-8.
On the stage of the Olympic finals, in the face of the trump card combination created by Japan for mixed doubles, the gap of 8 points is obviously too large. Even with the aura of the dream team, in the face of such an insurmountable gap, Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen can only accept a bitter defeat.
It was a strange game. In the first two innings, the “Xinwen combination” did not seem to be in a final. The 8-1 opening of the second set ignited the enthusiasm of the Chinese delegation on the spot. The Chinese table tennis dream team will deserve the gold medal, which is probably the consensus of most people present. Even if the Japanese team won three games in a row, the balance of victory was still balanced after the “Xinwen combination” dragged the game into the decisive game. No one can explain what happened in the decisive game, not even Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen themselves.
