Zhang Jun and Gao Ling retained the gold they won in Sydney 2002, but not without a fight. 'After we lost the second game, we kind of panicked and we were very nervous,' Zhang said. 'Luckily, my partner helped us reduce the tension. Whenever I made a mistake, she just smiled and pretended nothing happened. And I did the same to her. I never thought we would lose. We're the best and we proved it.' Gao said: 'It was difficult, especially in the third game. At first, we didn't have much luck. But we persevered. I never imagined our opponents to be so good.'
