Original title: A group of masters in the swimming pool physical test have died! Sun Yang's successor has a high level of awareness, wins the championship and speaks for the National Swimming Association
Recently, the Chinese swimming world has once again aroused the attention of the outside world. Masters such as Yu Hexin, Fu Yuanhui, Wang Jian Jiahe and others were all in the preliminaries, but they all missed the finals because of their substandard physical test results. Wang Jian Jiahe, who broke the Asian record, publicly questioned that the physical examination is not suitable for swimming. In the face of the dispute, the chairman of the Swimming Association responded!
The 2020 National Swimming Championships and the Tokyo Olympics qualifying competition are continuing. In order to further complement the physical shortcomings, the competition has set up a two-day physical fitness competition, including five events including the 3000-meter race, and the physical fitness competition is directly used as a competition. As part of the preliminaries, the top 16 athletes are ranked according to their physical fitness scores, and the top 8 athletes enter the final. Although Fu Yuanhui and others ranked first in the preliminaries, they failed the physical test and missed the final.
Wang Jian Jiahe publicly cried out injustice: "Physical fitness may not be the decisive role. This time we use physical fitness to define the top eight, so it's still a little lacking!" But the people were slight and she didn't dare to say too much.
This matter has aroused suspicion by the outside world, because swimming and track and field events have different requirements for athletes. "One size fits all" will only cause athletes to walk in Handan. Mr. Wei Jizhong also spoke up publicly this time and reminded the General Administration: "Physical fitness is the basic support of sports technology, but physical testing needs to vary depending on the event!" However, the voices of the media, experts and athletes did not impress the head of the Swimming Association. Zhou Jihong.
Zhou Jihong said: "This time the National Championship and Olympic Games Qualifying Tournament held in Qingdao is the first time that we have included a physical fitness test in an official national competition. We will continue to stick to this direction of competition reform. Judging from the physical fitness test results, Most athletes have achieved good results, and even achieved full scores in the physical fitness category, which reflects the results of physical training." "The competition must be carried out according to the rules, and everyone is equal before the rules."
