China, Ukraine, and Russia in the lead at Astana
After just 4 rounds, Russia, China, and Ukraine, established themselves as front runners for the medals at the 2013 Women's World Team Championship.
China, without their two superstars (Hou Yifan and Zhao Xue), and Russia, also without their top 2 players (Kosintseva sisters), have been in the lead right from the start. However, after a 2-2 split against each other, Ukraine is able to catch up.
