CHENGDU - China scooped three more titles in men's long jump, men's and women's 4x100m relays at the World University Games here on Sunday.

Zhang Jingqiang seized the men's long jump gold with a season-best leap of 7.93 meters. Chinese runners also won the men's and women's 4x100m relay titles in 38.80 and 43.70 seconds respectively.

"Our next target is to break the national record and achieve the best at the upcoming Asian Games," said Chen Guanfeng, who aimed to further improve the performance in men's 4x100m relay together with teammates Chen Jiapeng, Yan Haibin and Deng Zhijian.

China's women's team of Liang Xiaojing, Ge Manqi, Cai Yanting and Li Yuting believed that their efforts paid off. "We trained hard to prepare for the events. We are still young, and there will be more possibilities in the future," Li said after the competition.
