Chinese Gymnastics Team Hope for Golden Sweep in Asian Games

China is sending its same squads to Asian Games from last month's world championships in Rotterdam. With Japan not sending its top men's team and North Korea banned from competition, the door is open for China to win all 14 gold medals. The roster includes 127 gymnasts from across Asia, but few should be able to challenge China.
Jiang Yuyuan said the women's team is training very well, and that the responsibility of being team captain will not add pressure in her first Asian Games.

"I participated in the Olympic Games and world championships before and have a plenty of competition experience, so I'm not too nervous," she said. "Many people have asked me about being the captain, but actually no, I don't bow to the pressure."
