China News Service, Xi'an, September 21 (Reporter Wang Zumin) The Shaanxi National Games ushered in the second half of the opening ceremony on the 22nd, and various competitions are getting better.
Ye Shiwen and Xie Wenjun will compete for three consecutive championships in different venues. Lv Xiaojun will compete for gold again in his fifth National Games, Zhang Yufei will usher in her Olympic gold medal event, and table tennis will enter a more intense individual melee.
In the track and field arena where 9 gold medals were produced, the men’s 200m, 110m hurdles, men’s long jump, women’s 800m and other events are worthy of attention.
On the men's 200-meter runway, the "Chinese Trapeze" will gather again. In addition to Su Bingtian, Xie Zhenye, and Wu Zhiqiang, who have just won the top three men's 100 meters, they will also welcome the strong joining of Fujian star Tang Xingqiang.
Tang Xingqiang, a member of the Chinese team who won the fourth place in the men's 100-meter relay in the Tokyo Olympics, gave up the 100-meter competition this time to prepare for the 200-meter race.
But this item is the main item of defending champion Xie Zhenye. At the Tokyo Olympics, Xie Zhenye became the first player in the history of the Chinese Olympics to run into the men's 200m semi-final with a time of 20.34 seconds.
In the men's 110-meter hurdles, Xie Wenjun is expected to defend his title again, tying Liu Xiang's record of three consecutive championships in the National Games.
Xie Wenjun, who was considered the "successor of Liu Xiang," although he missed the finals in the three consecutive Olympic Games, he still holds the dominant position in the domestic arena.
In the men's long jump finals, Huang Changzhou, Gao Qinglong, and Wang Jianan will compete once again.
The men's long jump is one of the fastest-improving events in China's track and field during the Rio Olympics, and Wang Jianan won the fifth place in the Rio Olympics.
However, in recent years, the Chinese men's long jump has stagnated. Famous players Huang Changzhou, Xinxinglong, and Wang Jianan joined hands to advance to the Tokyo Olympics. Only Huang Changzhou entered the final and won the tenth place.
In the women's 800m final, Anhui girl Wang Chunyu is expected to defend her title.
At the Tokyo Olympics, she ran a time of 1 minute and 57 seconds, which was a historic fifth place for the Chinese team in this event.
In the swimming arena where 5 golds were produced on the 22nd, London Olympic champion Ye Shiwen will hit the National Games for three consecutive championships in the women's 200m individual medley final.
After the London Olympics, Ye Shiwen's state declined and was not selected for the Tokyo Olympic lineup.
In the current National Games, Ye Shiwen showed signs of recovery and led the Zhejiang team to win the women's 4×200m medley gold medal, and advanced to the first place in the women's 200m individual medley semifinals on the evening of the 21st.
In the women's 200m freestyle final, 18-year-old Guangdong teenager Tang Muhan will fight again.
In the women's 400m freestyle final on the 20th, Tang Muhan beat defending champion Li Bingjie and Asian Games champion Wang Jian Jiahe to win gold medals.
The women's 1500m freestyle will be the stage for Li Bingjie and Wang Jian Jiahe to compete.
At the Tokyo Olympics, Wang Jian Jiahe won fourth place and broke the Asian record in the preliminaries.
Li Bingjie broke the Asian record to win the last National Games.
In the men's 4×200m freestyle relay, the Zhejiang team is strong. Wang Shunruo, who has won 13 gold medals and became the gold medal champion in the history of the National Games, is expected to continue to expand and expand the results.
On the same day, Zhang Yufei will also participate in the preliminaries and semi-finals of the women's 200-meter butterfly that she won in the Tokyo Olympics.
In the weightlifting arena, two Tokyo Olympic champions have appeared one after another, which is expected to bring surprises again.
Shi Zhiyong is the double champion of the Rio and Tokyo Olympics.
In the Tokyo Olympics, he not only won the 73 kg gold medal, but also broke the world record. It is reasonable to win the National Games. Whether he can achieve his best result is the biggest thing to watch.
After Tokyo became the oldest Olympic champion in the world, the 37-year-old Lv Xiaojun participated in the National Games for the fifth time.
Lu Xiaojun, who owns 2 gold and 1 silver in the Olympics, has long been named a "god" in the weightlifting world and fitness circle. I hope this National Games will not be the stage for the curtain call of the "military god".
Gymnastics will go to the women's team finals, and the Guangdong team, which ranked first in the preliminary rounds, is expected to defend the title.
The table tennis competition will start to become more intense individual competitions.
On the 22nd, the mixed doubles will start a round of rounds for the 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 finals.
The Tokyo Olympic runner-up Xu Xin/Liu Shiwen will participate in the name of the "Olympic United Team". In the domestic arena where strong players gather, the combination of "Xinwen Lianbo" who was once the world's number one, I am afraid it will be difficult to pass.
The top 16 men's and women's singles will also be produced in the table tennis competition that day.
Among the current national table tennis players, only the two-time Olympic gold medalist Ma Long has won the National Games singles championship.
After Malone announced his withdrawal from the current National Games singles competition, who will win the National Games gold medal, which is more difficult than the Olympic championship, has become the biggest suspense in the table tennis arena.
