Chinese school Daping high school for girls which is in the city of Chongching has recently won an international soccer tournament. The team went on to win the prize by beating Germany. It was later revealed that the reason for the victory was that only 3 of the team members were actually from the school – the rest of the team being from the national team itself. The principal, Zhang Jianling initially denied cheating but later came clean.

“In order to have a best result in the tournament, we used other members in the team without making it known to superior government and the public,”  he was quoted as saying.

“What we have done goes against sportsmanship and has undermined the image of our city as well as soccer’s development in China”

Cheating in Chinese sport? Well you can colour me surprised! Recently in an unrelated story, Chinese teachers and parents were also charged with assisting students pass their university exams. The teachers had been paid by the parents to provide small electronic devices to the students so they could in turn feed them the answers. Saving face to the extreme! Well until you get caught that is.
