Video: Chinese Men’s and Women’s Teams Dominate at World Table Tennis Championships

From The Canadian Press:

China claimed a sweeping victory at the World Table Tennis Championship in Guangzhou. The tournament was considered a dress-rehearsal for the upcoming Olympic Games. China’s men’s team beat South Korea 3-0, while the women’s team won against Singapore, 3-1.

Winning the titles seemed inevitable as China’s players outclassed and outlasted opponents throughout the weeklong tournament. Hong Kong and Japan placed third in both the men’s and women’s events.

Pressure has been mounting on China as the Olympics approach. Table tennis is its national sport, and anything less than gold in the Chinese capital will be simply unacceptable.
