Liu Ying, head of the Chinese contingent, told the media that the force may face difficulties in the competition, including language barriers, equipment and rules. There is no way to prepare, since rules are given at the last minute, Liu said.
"It's different from basketball or soccer matches," Liu was quoted as saying. "We may even have no idea about a rule as little as a day before the competition."
