A 71-year-old retiree from Xi'an, Shaanxi province, has caused quite a stir in China after winning an international mahjong tournament in Europe.

Tian Ying took the top spot in the 11th Austrian Mahjong Open, held in Baden on July 9 and 10. Fellow Xi'an native Cao Lihua, 72, came in third.

The septuagenarians were part of an eight-strong delegation of mahjong competitors from China who battled it out against contestants from Austria, Hungary, Germany, France, Belgium, Russia, Italy, Switzerland and the Netherlands. The team returned to Xi'an this week.
