The Chinese women's badminton team proved its collective strength and might in the game by lifting a record-extending 16th Uber Cup trophy on its home court on Sunday.

Led by reigning Olympic singles champion Chen Yufei's straight-set opening win over Gregoria Mariska Tunjung, the host team showed no mercy facing Indonesia in the final of the world women's team championship as it wrapped it up with a doubles win by Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan and a second singles victory by He Bingjiao to retake the coveted title in Chengdu, Sichuan province.

Team China's successful Chengdu campaign has made up for its 2022 final loss to archrival South Korea, beaten by Indonesia in the semifinals, while serving as a huge confidence booster for the celebrated program ahead of the Paris Olympic Games.

Chen Yufei, the world No. 2 singles star, attributed the host's smooth sail to solid preparations and the strong bond and belief among each other within Team China.
