Following that scintillating start, Chinese doubles pair Chen Qingchen and Jia produced an equally dominant 21-11, 21-8 rout of Indonesia's Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti and Ribka Sugiarto in 39 minutes to take a comfortable 2-0 lead in the best-of-five team final.

China's second singles player He overcame a first-set scare to defeat Ester Nurumi Tri Wardoyo 10-21,21-15, 21-17 in the third match, clinching the host's golden finish and sending the enthusiastic Chengdu crowd into a frenzy.

"When we step on the court, we always believe in ourselves," Chen Qingchen said of the team's surging confidence.

"After the failure in the Tokyo final, we are now determined to go for the gold in Paris this summer," said Jia, who, alongside Chen Qingchen, lost the Tokyo Olympic doubles final to Indonesia's Greysia Polii and Apriyani Rahayu.
