On July 29, local time, Chinese athlete Zhang Yufei won the gold medal in the women's 200m butterfly swim final of the Tokyo Olympic Games and set a new Olympic record.

After the game, Zhang Yufei said in an interview that he had encountered two difficult periods.

She said that for a period of time, her 200-meter butterfly race was “the first in the water and the second in the iron”, which made her wonder if her life in the 200-meter butterfly was like this. For a while, she didn’t even want to train.

In another period of time, the technique was changed, the results fell back, and netizens even said that "Zhang Yufei is not suitable for the World Series.

Although she experienced two troughs, she finally rekindled her confidence and "turned a cocoon into a butterfly."

  She said that we chose the most difficult path and insisted on walking, seeing the light, and came to victory.
