While the Brazilians mourned their failure at this year's FIFA World Cup Vincent Janssen Jersey , many Chinese found themselves in a similar position, lamenting the final results of the 2014 European Mahjong Championship. Ending last week in France, the two Chinese delegations to the championship only ranked 37th and 39th among the 51 participating teams.

Although it's difficult to pinpoint when this game began, mahjong is widely recognized as having its roots in ancient China. While the tile game has evolved over the centuries, its popularity has never faded. A fun leisure time activity that can be played almost anytime and anywhere, people can be seen playing mahjong everywhere from community parks to playing while floating around in a swimming pool.

However Victor Wanyama Jersey , with the disastrous defeat of the Chinese delegation, netizens are wondering how one of Chinese people's favorite activities has become a source of shame.

Skill not luck

First, popular as it is among Chinese, most people only regard mahjong as a game rather than a sport, the latter of which actually has different rules compared to the more relaxed version played by most people.

According to a report on sport.qq, these strict rules help reduce the chances that someone can win out of sheer luck.

"The biggest difference between the sport and the game is that the former is more complicated to play... It looks like a simple math question Toby Alderweireld Jersey , but is in fact a complicated matter of probability. It is a test of a person's intelligence and mentality," Hu Zhiwei, winner of the 2008 Mahjong Super Cup China District Finals in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, told sport.qq.

"The Chinese players who took part in the championship do not represent the highest level of professional mahjong in China," Sheng Qi Son Heung-min Jersey , chief director of the United Association of Chinese Mahjong Sport and one of the rule makers for professional mahjong in China, told the Global Times.

The 80-year-old sports mahjong advocate explained that the delegations that joined the championship were made up of Chinese players who were only fans of mahjong and that they went to France out of personal interest rather than having been selected through national competitions. To his knowledge no players who currently hold high ranks in China actually took part in the event.

Raising awareness

While the game is extremely popular in China, very few people are aware of mahjong as a sport. In his column for news.ifeng, columnist Zhang Hansi joked that there were several ways to bring more attention to the sport of mahjong: having "mahjong girls" who dance during breaks and bringing in commercial sponsors, who could then have their brands put on the back sides of the tiles.

Joking aside, he pointed out that without high audience interest Pau Lopez Jersey , mahjong as a sport will continue to suffer as there will be little money for awards which in turn means little incentive for quality players to participate in tournaments.

However a more key problem in getting sports mahjong off the ground is that unlike other sports which hold a high reputation with the general public, mahjong faces the major obstacle of being associated with gambling.

While some schools outside of China hold mahjong classes for even children, Sheng said that many government authorities in China treat the game as a source of gambling and are opposed to promoting it.

"Actually soccer also has a close link with gambling as well," Sheng noted, stating that the idea of equating mahjong and gambling is a misconception among people that needs to be changed.
