Did china win the 2008 Olympics?

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 medals of any country at the Olympics. It also depends on if you decide who "wins" the Olympics by the number of total medals or the number of gold only.
