On August 17th 2008, Rafael Nadal won a first-ever gold medal for Spain in Olympic Tennis! It happened in Beijing and it was amazing to witness. We chose few photos from those incredible days and hope you will enjoy them. The pictures show Rafa attending the ceremony, giving interviews at press conferences, watching and supporting team mates in other sports from the audience, and after beating Fernando Gonzalez 6-3, 7-6(2), 6-3, winning the gold and biting the trophy, but more than that, Rafa was in high spirits and he seemed to have had the time of his life there. Enjoy some of his memories!
