Nationwide this year
Yu Hexin is the most regretful of the many famous players who have achieved good results but missed the decisive battle. He broke the national record of 50m freestyle held by Ning Zetao with 21.79. It is a pity that he only ranked because of the physical fitness test. The ninth missed the final.
Swimming website SwimSwam paid special attention to Yu Hexin's failure to make a decisive battle when he broke the national record. "Yu Hexin easily won the first place in the preliminaries with a score of 21.79. He broke the national record held by Ning Zetao. However, it is worth paying attention to. Yes, Yu Hexin was blocked from the finals because he failed to enter the top eight in the previous physical fitness test."
游泳网站SwimSwam特别注意Yu Hexin打破国家纪录后的失败。 “于和欣轻松地以21.79的成绩赢得了预赛的第一名。他打破了宁泽涛的全国纪录。但是，值得关注的是。是的，于和欣因未能参加决赛而被阻止进入决赛前一次体能测试中的前八名。”
"It is reported that only those who meet the physical fitness test are eligible to enter the final. In the physical fitness test, swimmers are required to perform vertical jump height, 30-meter sprint, maximum pull-ups test, trunk core strength test, and 3000-meter run test. In addition, the same is true for Yu Jingyao and Fu Yuanhui. They can qualify for the decisive battle based on their results, but they failed the physical fitness test."
Regarding Yu Hexin breaking the national record and failing to make the final, readers of swimming website SwimSwam also expressed their views, "This is really interesting, why would anyone think these requirements are a good idea? I hope that is not the case."
"It sounds suspicious, not like a real thing. I don't believe that some of the best athletes will be disqualified for the finals because they fail tests unrelated to their own projects." Some foreign netizens said, "Such a decision It's incredible, it's impossible to find a proper reason."
In addition to swimmers, athletes in track and field and many other events are facing the challenge of physical fitness testing. Before the chess league this year, players are also required to undergo physical fitness testing. Each player needs to participate in and complete 3 events. The difficulty is not Great, but those who fail the physical fitness test are not allowed to participate in the competition.
