Beijing Olympic bronze medallists Xue Chen/Zhang xi hammerd Simone Kuhn/Nadine Zumkehr of Switzerland in three sets on Monday to gain their first win at the women's beach volleyball preliminaries at the 2012 London Olympic.

Coming off a shocking 1-2 loss to Russians Anastasia Vasina/Anna Vozakova in the opener on Saturday, the Chinese duo, second seed of the tournament, clawed back their hope to advance into the last 16 with a 21-19, 16-21 and 15-8 victory.

Zhang Xi scored five of China's last six points to help them remaining in the competition with three points in hand.
