I'm so proud!!!!!!! At last Mexico gets a gold medal in Beijing 2008. Eight years since the last gold for Mexico and it is the first gold medal from a male athlete for Mexico since 1984!!!! 

I Quote
"Guillermo Pérez is to take home the first gold medal for Mexico from the Olympics in Beijing this year, after winning a four-round taekwondo match against Gabriel Mercedes of the Dominican Republic."

Also, this ceremony brought the first medal ever for Afghanistan, so wow :D.
