China prove too strong for Japan

Beijing, China, April 11, 2004 - The Chinese women’s national Volleyball team continued their winning streak against their Japanese counterparts in an international friendly match that took place in Jinjiang in Southern China on Saturday. The 3-0 victory was China’s third in a five game series against Japan.

China have been undergoing intensive training at a southern Chinese base since February as they prepare for the 2004 Olympic Games. Head coach, Chen Zhonghe, has indicated that the major target at the 2004 Summer Games will be to win the gold medal.

Japan, meanwhile, are using the friendly games as preparation for the forthcoming Olympic qualification tournament to be held in Tokyo between May 8-16.
