China confirms domination, wins World Team Championship 2015
World Team Championship 2015The national team of China continued its global domination by securing the gold medal at the FIDE World Team Chess Championship in Tsakhkadzor, having previously won the 2014 Chess Olympiad in Tromso.

Earlier, China had three silver medals from the World Team Championships in 2005, 2011 and 2013. In 2005 they were on the brink of winning the gold, before being overtaken by Russia in the dramatic last round. The next generation of players took a leap ahead, with Bu Xiangzhi being the only member of the team both in 2005 and 2015.

Ukraine was in contention for the first place, but a couple of setbacks in the final rounds forced them to take consolation in the team silver medal. The host country Armenia had a shaky start, but they went on to win four matches in the last five rounds to claim the bronze medal.
