Hangzhou, September 9 (ZXS) -- On the evening of September 30, the swimming event of the Hangzhou Asian Games ended, and the full moon of the Mid-Autumn Festival reflected the entire venue.
In all 41 events, the Chinese swimmers won 28 gold medals, setting the best record in the history of the Asian Games. Unlike the Jakarta Asian Games, when the two teams of China and Japan were equally divided, when they came to Hangzhou, the Chinese team, which had risen sharply, dominated the top.

Talent reserve, scientific guarantee and fighting spirit are several factors that have made China successful. The Chinese team in the men's 4x100m medley relay won with a new Asian record time of 3:27.01, not only breaking the Asian record set at the Fukuoka World Championships at the end of July and closing the gap with the world record, but also showing the thickness of the talent pool in the two sets of horses used in the preliminary final.
The constantly updated training concepts and training methods provide scientific guarantee for Chinese players. Advanced technologies such as 3D photography, artificial intelligence technology and holographic imaging systems are applied to field analysis, and every step of athletes' progress is inseparable from the support of coaches, rehabilitation, nutrition and other teams. A senior journalist commented that swimming is no longer a sport that can be improved by athletes training hard, and every advance means an overall breakthrough.

The fighting spirit is reflected in every athlete. Whether it is veterans Wang Shun, Ye Shiwen, Yan Zibei, or the backbone Qin Haiyang, Zhang Yufei, Li Bingjie, or the powerful young generals Pan Zhanle, Ma Yonghui, Cheng Yujie, they are all doing their best for the honor of the entire team. Wang Shun described the current Chinese swimming team as follows: "Everyone has the same goal, they are all positive and want to add glory to this team." ”

There is not only solidarity, but also healthy competition. "Frog King" Qin Haiyang and "Queen of Butterflies" Zhang Yufei, who also studied under coach Cui Dengrong, launched a "same-door battle" in the Asian Games, and before the game, Zhang Yufei clearly stated that he would attack 7 gold to win the Asian Games MVP (the most valuable athlete), and Qin Haiyang, who did not say much in front of the media, seemed to be secretly competing with her, and the mutual promotion greatly improved the training quality of both sides.

If Qin Haiyang and Zhang Yufei's MVP battle is a contest for the number of gold medals for the backbone of the Chinese swimming army, then Wang Shun and Ye Shiwen, two veterans, have a lot of weight in the individual events. At the Fukuoka World Championships before the Asian Games, Wang Shun failed to reach the final in the main event, and Ye Shiwen, who made his second comeback, did not have a satisfactory competition result. At the Asian Games, the two finally answered forcefully with two individual gold medals.

In addition to the joy of harvest, it is inevitable that the field will leave regrets. In the women's 4x100m medley relay heats, the Chinese team was disqualified due to the start jump and missed the podium due to foul play at the third consecutive Asian Games. In addition, despite breaking six Asian records, the Chinese team is still close to breaking a layer of "window paper" in some dominant events, and it is interesting to see when it can break through.
On the night of the full moon in the Mid-Autumn Festival, the pool athletes ended their journey to the Asian Games. This pond on the bank of the Wangqiantang River has become a successful witness of the Chinese swimming team in this event. On the road of continuous breakthrough in competitive sports, Chinese swimming has set its sights on the front. (End)
