There are two token European players, so the lower rated Chinese women that the sports ministry is trying out to see who rises up the ranks will get to beat-up on them; the Chinese women are notoriously under-rated -- that's what happens in the female chess ghetto, particularly in China where those lower in the ranks rarely play against anyone other than each other.
