Flawless China retain World Team Championship

The Chinese men’s team didn’t lose a single game in Khanty-Mansiysk on their way to retaining the World Team Championship title. Russia only lost one, but that defeat for Vladimir Fedoseev at the hands of Li Chao meant Russia had to settle for silver medals. Poland’s bronze was their best team performance since 1939, while Turkey stunned the world with their ability to compete with the top teams. In the women’s section Russia won their first World Teams title in style, finishing three match points clear of China.
