Day six of the Olympic Games!

Day 6 of the 2004 Olympic Games proved to be a day where many new Olympic and World records were set.

In Shooting, Manfred KURZER of Germany, broke the Men's 10m Running Target world record in the qualification round with 590/600, and a little bit later he became the last Olympic Gold medallist of this Shooting event, since it is being removed from the Olympic Games competition programme after the 2004 Games.

In Archery, Korea’s PARK Kyung Mo set a new 18-arrow Olympic Record in his 1/8 Elimination Round match. He scored 173 points with his 18 arrows, hitting the 10-ring 12 times on his way to breaking the Olympic Record by one point. However, Olympic Gold winner of the Men’s Individual event was Italy’s Marco GALIAZZO who beated Hiroshi YAMAMOTO of Japan by two points.

The first two finals of the Olympic Badminton competition were held today at the Goudi Olympic Hall. In the Women's Singles Ning ZHANG of China took the gold medal. At the final of the Mixed Doubles event the defending Olympic champions Jun ZHANG and Ling GAO from China have successfully reclaimed their title after a 2-1 win.

In Judo, Japan’s Kosei INOUE, the defending Olympic champion and three times world champion- not beaten on the international mat for four years - has been pushed off the podium at the -100kg, since he was beaten at both the quarterfinal stage and the Repechage. Ihar MAKARAU, from Belarus was the one to win the Gold medal in the -100kg category.

In Sailing, Sofia BEKATOROU and Aimilia TSOULFA of Greece, secured the gold medal at the Women's 470 event.

In Weightlifting, Chunhong LIU from China, rewrote the women's Weightlifting record books with a performance hailed as one of the greatest in the sport. She broke records with each of her five lifts and ended the event holding all six World and Olympic records in the light heavyweight 69kg class for snatch (122.5kg), clean and jerk (153kg) and total (275kg).

Finally, in Swimming three new Olympic Records were set by three athletes from the USA. In the Women’s 200m Breaststroke, Amanda BEARD set a new record (2:23.37) and won gold. Aaron PEIRSOL finished first setting a new Record with a time of 1:54.95 at the Men’s 200m Backstroke final, while the third record was set by Michael PHELPS who won gold in the Men’s 200m Individual Medley event with a time of 1:57.14.
In Women’s 100 m Freestyle Final, Jodie HENRY of Australia won gold, one day after she had set the new World Record (53.52).
