  China overpowered host Japan 3-1 and won its fourth women's volleyball World Cup title on Sunday.

  The Chinese team led by guru coach Jenny Lang Ping crushed a tenacious Japanese side 25-17, 22-25, 25-21, 25-22 to claim its first World Cup crown since 2003 and its first major title since 2004 when Lang's team won the Olympic title in Athens.

  As a player, "Iron Hammer" Lang Ping led the Chinese to the 1981 and 1985 World Cup titles.
