BEIJING, May 22 (Xinhua) -- With trophies of two prestigious team chess tournaments already under their belt, Chinese male chess players are eying on an individual world title.

China won the FIDE men's world team chess championship for the first time in April following its first men's chess Olympiad cup triumph last year.

Chinese coach Ye Jiangchuan believes that his proteges are capable of winning more glories.

""Last year when we won the Olympiad Cup, many attributed it to a bit of luck, but we won the team championship this year nike air max plus nere , which demonstrated it's not simply because of luck. Now the Chinese male players can be ranked among the best in the sport,"" Ye said on Friday.
