How many gold medals did china win in the 2008 Olympics?
51 gold medals
China received the most gold medals at the 2008 Olympics, but not the most total medals. When a country hosts the Olympics, they have a chance to receive more medals (especially gold) as they qualify for more competitions. This helped China beat the US in the largest number of gold medals, but the US still pulled out with the most total medals. I only say this because the US almost always receives the most gold…
The United States won the most medals overall at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games with 110 total medals (36 Gold, 38 Silver, 36 Bronze). The country who won the most medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics was the USA with 110 medals (36 gold, 38 silver & 36 bronze), however China with 10 fewer medals finished top of the medals table due to a greater number of gold medals (51 compared to USA 36)
