Uruguay were playing solidly during the WBHC 2012 and prior to this at the test tournament, so their defeat against China has been a surprise result. And this although China did well against Denmark the day before.

Being favorites the South Americans marched on by 8:2, but the Asian Games winner China were not left shocked, but thanks to points by a strong performing Tianjie Zhang, her side first leveled the result and then built a lead that China maintained at the final buzzer.

This caused a total black out at the South Americans and China moved on with 6:0. At a 9:2 Chinese lead Uruguay head coach Alejandro Trejo called a time out, but his words didn´t help much, as Uruguay could only close up, but not turn the result.

China celebrated big time on the court winning their first points in the tournament.

Women´s game:
