China, chess and Go champion ?

The match between chinese and russian chess teams just ended in Nizhniy Novgorod. Both russian men and women teams lost to chinese by, respectively, a 24.5-25.5 and 23-27 score. Finally, China beat Russia by 52.5-47.5 points.

More details -

Chess seems to be much less played than Xiangqi in China, the chinese are probably able to take the crown in every board game, soon a chinese world champion for chess ? Practice, practice and practice... Their only secret ? :)

... or was the russian team simply not strong enough ?

Still waiting for more chinese friends here at FICGS, but internet seems to have its own limits too :/
