  • China originally finished third, but it was discovered in 2008 that Chinese officials falsified the age of team member Dong Fangxiao; the team were officially disqualified in March 2012, with the bronze medals awarded to Ukraine, and Dong's results from this competition and the 2000 Olympics were struck from the records. Previously, in 2010, China's 2000 Olympic bronze medals had been awarded to the US team.[1]
