The Olympic Games of Beijing 2008 were a great result for China, not only regarding sports but further, Chief of the Mexican mission Carlos Padilla Becerra said on Friday.

Padilla told Xinhua that with discipline, unity and work, China achieved the best Games of the history.

Padilla said that "China told the world here they are very strong in all the aspects: economic, social, political, with a great strength of culture and sports, and it is the symptom of its culture that now again is reflected in the humankind."

Padilla said that the Games of Beijing were a reference to the humankind integration and a peace movement. "The message given during the inauguration (ceremony), make us remember the essence of what the Olympics means."

Padilla also hailed the work of the volunteers, who contributed in an efficient way to the success of the Games. The volunteer for Mexico was a lady, 70, who was the wife of a consul in the Mexican city of Tijuana in the border with U.S.

"Madame Yuan became an indispensable person for our work team. She knew Spanish and helped us many times with the translations during the arrival or departure of the athletes and during other moments when we have problems," Padilla said.

"She also helped us in the office when we went to the competitions. She was a great help," Padilla said.

About the facilities, Padilla said that there are no better ones in the world and he said that the Olympic village was very spacious, comfortable, agreeable and safe.

Padilla said that also the transportation was very well organized. "They gave us vehicles with drivers who in many occasion worked for us till 2am or 3am."
