 Womens Curling World Championship China strives to lead the first six new players in the second round


In the womens curling world championship, the Chinese team has been on the podium three times in the history, and won the first championship in 2009 to make history. In 2008 and 2011, they won the second and third runners-up respectively. In the 2018 World Championship, China won 6 times and lost 6 times in the round robin, just ranking seventh in the top six.

Chinas womens team had only won the third place in the Pan-Pacific Championship before, but did not qualify for the World Championship, so it needed to participate in the selection competition to compete for the qualifications. At the National Curling Championship held at the end of last year, the team consisting of captain Meijie as third base, fourth base Wang Rui, second base Yao Mingyue, first base Ma Jingyi and substitute Zhang Lijun won the championship, thus obtaining the qualification to represent China in the World Championship in January this year.

In the World Championship Selection in New Zealand, eight teams competed for two places in the World Championship. China ranked second in the round-robin tournament with 6 wins and 1 losses, and advanced to the pegging elimination tournament. Then China defeated Finland, which ranked first in the round-robin tournament, 4-3, to win the entrance tickets for the World Championship, and the latter got another qualification.

In addition to China and Finland, which have qualified for the World Championship through selection, the other 11 teams in this World Championship are defending champion Canada, host Denmark, Winter Olympic champion Sweden, Germany, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Russia, Scotland, Switzerland and the United States. In the round robin stage, each team will have 12 matches, and the top six teams in the round robin will enter the competition for the second round. According to the rules and schedule, the teams in the first two places in the semi-finals will directly take part in the semi-finals, while the third and sixth, the fourth and the fifth will fight for the other two semi-finals respectively, and ultimately win the final place through the semi-finals and the final. According to the schedule, the first round robin of China will be against Sweden, led by Winter Olympic champion Hasselberg, and the second round will be against Finland, the old opponent of the second round robin, then face Scotland, Latvia, Denmark, Russia, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, the United States, South Korea and Japan in turn. Overall, in the first half of the Chinese team, except against Sweden and Scotland, Latvia, Denmark and Germany are relatively weak. If we can seize the opportunity of the first half, the Chinese team will have the chance to qualify for the second round. Source: Netease Sports Author: Leons Editor-in-Charge: Luting_NS5242
