Overview

Team profile

China

China will return to the FIVB Women’s World Grand Champions Cup after missing out on the previous two editions, hoping to replicate their success of 2001, when they won their only gold of the competition.
And this year the reigning Olympic champions will seek to capitalise on the momentum from their 2014 FIVB World Championship silver medal, their 2015 FIVB World Cup gold and their Rio 2016 Olympic title. That was their third Olympic gold after Los Angeles 1984 and Athens 2004. They also have a silver from Atlanta 1996 and two bronze from Seoul 1988 and Beijing 2008. China have also won two World Championship titles in 1982 and 1986, in addition to four FIVB World Cups, the one FIVB Grand Champions Cup, seven Asian Games and 13 Asian Championships.
