Chinese sweep at world championship

DORTMUND, Germany - China completed the clean sweep of gold medals at the world team table tennis championship on Sunday as their women’s team beat defending champions Singapore 3-0 in Sunday’s final.

After the men had downed hosts Germany 3-0 earlier in their final, the Chinese dragon roared again as the women’s team took revenge for their defeat in the world team final two years ago.

China’s Ding Ning put her side ahead in the opening match with a 3-1 win over Feng Tianwei, while compatriot Li Xiaoxia also had few problems in her 3-1 win over Wang Yuegu. It fell to Guo Yue to seal victory, and she dominated Li Jiawei with a 3-0 win in straight games.

It was the Chinese women’s 18th gold medal at the world team championships. AFP
