Xian Dongmei finally realised a dream after years of competing. 'This is my first Olympic gold medal and probably my last,' said the Guangdong-born athlete. 'It's truly exciting to win an Olympic gold medal because I have been trying so hard to get this. I don't think I will be able to sleep because I am so excited about winning. I wish to thank my husband and my team who have supported me through the years. I always wanted to win an Olympic gold medal and now I have achieved my dream.'
