China is the only team allowed to have more than 1 team competing from their country. They have a total of 2 from their mainland, and another if you count Chinese Taipei since it is not an independent nation. For a total of 3 teams from 1 country.
Doesn't matter, since the medals that Chinese Tapei wins are not counted towards Chinas medal count. Also, the political status of Taiwan/Chinese Taipei is very controversial. So you should be careful with saying "Chinese Taipei belongs to China". There are people who see that differently. ;)
Anyway: Hooray Mexico! What a great game! I'm really happy for Mexico to win the gold medal in football, since the national team always is on the edge of becoming a world-class team, but somehow they never make it all the way to the top. This gold medal should help the national team and I hope they can surprise us all at the next World Cup.
