Spearheaded by world champion Tong Wen, the Chinese college students judo delegation is expected to grab three golds at the 24th Universiade, said the delegation head Su Changlai here on Sunday.

"I'm confident to achieve the goal," Su said.

Su, also the secretary general of national college students taekwondo and judo association, said the judo and taekwondo players are expected to claim at least three golds in total.

However, because of world champion Wu Jingyu's absence in the taekwondo events, all the gold expectations are now on experienced judokas.

Tong Wen, gold medalist in 2005 World Judo Championships and last year's Doha Asiad, will show up in the opening day of the Universiade Judo competition in women's over 78kg division.

Liu Huanyuan, Doha Asiad gold medalist will probably win the women's open, and the third gold may be contributed by the women's team, according to Su.

It's the debut for judo competitions at the Universiades. China sent six female and seven male judokas to participate in 16 out of 18 men's and women's divisions.
