(0730 CR M14)CHINESE WATER POLO WINS SILVER DATELINE: July 30, 2011 LENGTH: 00:01:09 PICS The women's water polo team of China records the best result by clinching the first-ever silver medal at the 14th FINA World Championships. China, who never bettered their 11th place finish in the Championships, was defeated by Greece at 9-8 in the final on Friday. Trailing the European runner-up 6-9 in the last four minutes of the final quarter, China succeeded to narrow the gap to 7-9 with three minutes remaining. Sun Yujun scored the morale-boosting goal with one minute 38 seconds left, making it 8-9 for the host and arousing thunderous cheers from audience. However, in the last chance of offence, China failed to break the opponent's tight defence. Starting the sport only in 2004, the women's national team has already leaped to world first-class level, which is a miracle. Showing some regrets, China's Spanish coach Jane Giralt Juan says the team will get prepared for London Olymp Powered by www.newslook.com Producer : Xinhua News Agency
