CHINA AND UZBEKISTAN IMPRESS AT ASIAN C’SHIPS

 

China finished in No. 1 position in the medals table at the Asian Championships which concluded in Bangkok, Thailand last Friday in the countdown to World Elite Men’s and Women’s Championships in Russia in September/October.

All China’s gold medals (six) were claimed by women, with the majority of titles won in four of the five Olympic limits for females in a 60% strike rate.

Uzbekistan was the top performing male team with four gold (40% of the titles on offer) followed by India and Kazakhstan with two apiece.

Overall, ten countries shared the gold medals at the 34-nation tournament and 18 countries took home medals.

China finished in No 1 position at the 2018 World Women’s Elites in New Delhi – Ireland finished sixth courtesy of Kellie Harrington’s gold.

Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan finished in the top three in the medals table at the 2017 World Men’s Elites in Hamburg – Ireland finished 9th courtesy of Joe Ward’s silver.

The performances of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and China in Bangkok and at the last two World Men’s and Women’s Championships are consistent with their performances at Rio 1016 where Uzbekistan topped the medals table ahead of second-place Cuba.

Kazakhstan, who shared joint 5th spot with Ireland in the medals table at London 2012, commanded fourth position and China 9th at the 31st Olympiad in Rio.
