MARDIN (TURKEY), Dec 27 (IANS): India squandered an opportunity to win the women�s world chess team championship losing 1-3 to Georgia while China won the title despite losing to Ukraine 1.5-2.5 in the eighth round.

Among other contenders Russia beat South Africa 4-0 but that could only catapult them to second position with no chance of catching up with China on board-points Monday, reports Xinhua. World champions Hou Yifan, Ju Wenjun and Tan Zhongyi drew their matches, while Zhao Xue on the third board suffered a setback.

Chinese coach Yu Shaoteng said: �Our players felt tired and as a result we lost the game. The important thing is we became the champions. Tuesday�s match is not significant for the team but for the players themselves.�

In other matches, Armenia defeated Vietnam and Greece defeated hosts Turkey.
