 CHN / China

China is the team to fear in the world of womenís Volleyball at the moment. Not only is the Asian superpower ranked as the best on the FIVB world ranking list, these tremendously talented ladies are also Asian Champions, World Cup and World Grand Prix title holders. Thus, with nothing else but gold on their minds ahead of the 2004 Olympic Games, China will be roaring into this seasonís World Grand Prix for target practice.

In an ominous sign for all opposing teams, the Chinese women's team is going through a rebuilding phase with a side composed of many young and talented players, who have brought a new and dynamic style to their play.

It worked wonderfully in 2003 at the World Grand Prix and World Cup and now they are hoping to do the same in 2004, particularly at the Olympic Games.

Players like team captain Feng Kun, Chen Jin and 197cm Zhao Ruirui are becoming more and more experienced and increasingly dominant on the international scene. Their combination in the World Cup and Grand Prix successes earlier last year was exhilarating and laid the foundation for China's superb results.

Under coach Chen Zhonghe, China is currently trying to build a team with distinguished characteristics on the basis of overall abilities for offence and defense and judging by current results heís doing an excellent job.
