Original title: Huang Jianxiang spit out physical fitness test: I never dreamed that swimming in China would have such a day
During this period of time, various sports competitions have been carried out in China. Many athletes have been preparing for this for a long time. However, the audience's eyes are not focused on the athletes' performance. Instead, a regulation of the General Administration of Sports concerning the physical fitness of athletes has become focus. It is understood that in February this year, the General Administration of Sports issued a number of regulations, including physical fitness testing as a prerequisite criterion for selecting athletes. Even if you have outstanding results in the event, you will not be able to participate in the subsequent Tokyo Olympics.
This unreasonable regulation makes many athletes unbearable. So far, more than ten athletes have been eliminated because of poor physical fitness. Among them, Fu Yuanhui, who won the first place in the preliminaries, missed the finals. Wang Jian Jiahe broke the Asian record and missed the finals. Therefore, the swimming event became the hardest hit area under this physical fitness regulation. Even the famous commentator Huang Jianxiang was extremely speechless about this regulation. He couldn't help but speak up for the athletes through his Weibo: I can't even dream of it, there is such a day in Chinese swimming!
Huang Jianxiang also shared his own personal experience when he made a comment, because his son himself trained in swimming since he was a child. He found that his son had insufficient leg strength due to swimming all the year round, and suffered a lot from land sports. And those professional swimmers are even more so. On the one hand, they need to worry about their performance in swimming, and on the other hand they need to train their physical fitness. This is simply impossible. This regulation on physical fitness testing is simply tasteless and cannot help athletes improve their performance.
