Team China will make a late arrival into Vancouver amidst speculation that they may be the dark horses of the tournament. This young team's impressive performance at the November Qualifying Tournament has caught the attention of Canadian coaches who, like many watching the Women's World Championship in Vernon BC last year, saw an unknown Chinese team challenge Canada in the final. Team China will now face a much stronger field than Prague Qualifying, but Korea proved last year that it's possible for a team playing full-time to quickly master the technical skills required to play at the highest level.
