Established in 1982, the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) was created by the State of New York to manage the facilities used during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid. ORDA operates Whiteface, Gore Mountain, and Belleayre Mountain ski areas; the Olympic Sports Complex, the Olympic Jumping Complex, the Olympic Speed Skating Oval, the Conference Center at Lake Placid and the Olympic Center. As host to international and national championships, the Authority has brought millions of athletes, spectator and participants to the region, resulting in significant economic impact and development.
China has been the most successful nation in Olympic table tennis, winning 53 medals (28 gold, 17 silver, and 8 bronze). Since 1992, Chinese players have won at least one medal in every event. At the 2008 Games, China achieved an unprecedented medal sweep in both the men's and women's singles tournaments,  and won both team tournaments.   With 18 medals, South Korea is second to China in the overall medal count, and is the only other nation to have won double-digit medals. As of the 2016 Summer Olympics, 100 medals (32 gold, 32 silver, and 36 bronze) have been awarded to 90 players selected from 12 National Olympic Committees (NOC). Third-place matches were not held at the 1992 Summer Olympics, so all losing semifinalists were given bronze medals, resulting in four additional bronze medalists.
