Chinanews Client, May 8th. The 2021 National Swimming Championships and the Tokyo Olympic Trials, which opened in Qingdao on April 30, ended all competitions on the 8th.

  The time schedule of the National Swimming Championship completely simulates the Tokyo Olympic Games schedule, that is, the preliminaries of each event are held in the evening, and the semi-finals and finals are held in the morning.

Therefore, for participating athletes, this is not only a "battlefield" for striving to achieve the Olympic A target, but also a rare exercise opportunity for the Tokyo Olympics.

  Zhang Yufei stood out from many famous players and became the focus of the event.

She not only won the 50m freestyle, 100m butterfly and 200m butterfly championships, but also cooperated with her teammates to win the gold medals in the women's 4x200m freestyle relay and the men's and women's 4x100m medley relay.

  Not only that, Zhang Yufei’s performance in the main butterfly stroke is surprising: in the 100-meter butterfly, Zhang Yufei swam for 56 seconds in the preliminary and finals, which is the best result since last year; in the 200-meter butterfly, Zhang Yufei’s championship result 2:05.44 is also the best in the world since last year.

From this point of view, Zhang Yufei will become the vanguard of the Chinese swimming team in the Tokyo Olympics.

  Not only Zhang Yufei performed well, but the Chinese swimming army female players can be described as more blooming in this competition.

The 19-year-old Yang Junxuan not only won the women's 200-meter freestyle championship, but her time of 1:54.57 broke the Asian record.

Yu Yiting, who is 3 years younger than Yang Junxuan, is a blockbuster. She has set the world youth record in the 200-meter individual medley more than once.

  In addition, freestyle long distance double Shu Li Bingjie and Wang Jian Jiahe both walked out of the trough. The former won 400 gold medals and the latter won 800 and 1500 championships.

On May 6, Zhejiang team player Xu Jiayu checked the results after the game.

On the same day, the 2021 National Swimming Championships and Tokyo Olympic Trials Men's 200m Backstroke Final was held in Qingdao, Shandong. Xu Jiayu won the championship.

  For men, Xu Jiayu, Yan Zibei, Wang Shun and other veterans performed stably, among which Xu Jiayu and Yan Zibei each won 4 gold medals.

However, the overall performance of the men's team was poor.

According to media statistics, the Chinese swimming team won a total of 32 Olympic tickets in this championship, of which only 9 were from the men's event.

Among the men's 14 individual items, only the 200 self and 200 mixed men have reached the full quota.

  After the championship, the next chance to hit the Olympics is the replacement match in June. The Chinese swimming team needs to work harder.
