China's women's beach volleyball squad has arrived in Rio, three days before this year's Olympic Games officially kick off.

Yue Yuan and Wang Fan are China's only qualifiers for this year's Olympics.

As an Olympic debutant, Yue Yuan says she is excited to be in Rio.กก

"It's not true if I tell you I have no pressure. As we only have one pair competing in this Rio Olympics, me and my partner do have a little bit pressure. But anyway, we hope that we can give our best performance here."

The Chinese team came in fifth at the World Championships last year.

China's best result at the Olympics is a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Games.กก

The Chinese duo will first face a pair from Switzerland before taking on the United States.
