Medalists

After the olympics, the name "Five Golden Flowers" was given to the five medalist swimmers Yang Wenyi (50 meter Freestyle champion), Zhuang Yong (100 meter Freestyle champion), Lin Li (200 meter Individual Medley champion), Qian Hong (100 meter Butterfly champion) and Wang Xiaohong (200 meter Butterfly silver medalist).[2]

Archery

The People's Republic of China sent three men and three women to Barcelona for archery. Just as in 1984, the women were the more successful squad, winning the team silver. All three qualified for the elimination rounds, with one falling in the first round, another dropping in the second, and Wang Xiaozhu making it all the way to the semifinals before being defeated. In contrast, the men lost their first team match and only one qualified for individual eliminations.
