The team from China beat France and the U.S. at a blind-tasting test

A wine-tasting team from China defeated France and the U.S. at a top blind-tasting contest at one of France's biggest vineyards this weekend.

This weekend one of the world’s top wine-tasting competitions was held at the Château du Galoupet in Provence, and the team from China won the whole thing.

According to The Telegraph, teams from 21 different countries entered the contest. The blind-tasting teams from France, Spain, and Belgium were the favorites to win the contest, which was held at one of the largest wine estates in France, but in the end the four competitors from China won.

To win the competition, each of the teams had to taste six white wines and six red wines, and they had to try to figure out the grape type, the country of origin, the appellation, and the vintage of each glass without seeing the bottle or the label.

Last year the Chinese team finished 13th. This year they won, and in victory a team spokesperson said that blind-tasting is half skill and half luck.

The team from France finished second, and the U.S. came in third.


Chinese orienteering team disqualified for cheating at Military World Games

A Chinese orienteering team has been disqualified for cheating at the Military World Games in China.

Chinese runners in the middle-distance competition on Sunday initially came first, second, and fourth among the women and second among the men.

However, it was soon discovered that the runners had received illegal assistance from spectators and used markings and small paths prepared in the terrain that only their team was aware of, the International Orienteering Federation (IOF), whose rules govern the competition, said.

Competitors are meant to use only a map and compass to complete the course. IOF officials investigated the results after protests from rivals including Russia, Switzerland, France, Poland and Austria, and a jury decided to void the Chinese team’s results and ban them from other races. Organisers rejected an appeal from the Chinese athletes.

It is an embarrassing episode for China, which was hosting the sporting event for the first time. China built an athlete’s village for the 10-day event in Wuhan, and the country’s president, Xi Jinping, attended the opening ceremony.

Observers saw the event, which is held every four years for military athletes from around the world, as part of an effort to build closer ties between the People’s Liberation Army and other armies and bolster the Chinese military’s profile.

News of the disqualification was not widely reported in Chinese media on Thursday, in contrast to reports this week celebrating the team’s wins.
