Original title: Former Chinese world champion criticizes China's physical test! Not eligible to go to the Olympics in China, naturalized Australia
Recently, the controversy over the link between physical test and competition results in China's sports has aroused great attention. Wang Jian Jiahe, Fu Yuanhui, Ye Shiwen and others missed the final because of the failure of physical test. In addition, the women's gymnastics vaulting finals did not even have enough 8 people due to physical tests. The provincial team players easily won the fifth place in the country with 0-difficulty movements, which became a joke. In this regard, former Chinese diving world champion Li Shixin made criticisms.
Li Shixin said: “I can’t help but complain about the previous gymnastics competition news (the vault final). This one-size-fits-all physical test rule makes the Chinese gymnastics team, which is already faulty, even worse. I have always I think the diving event is more difficult, because it is restricted by the water venues, there are too few places to practice and play, and the results are very hard, now parents are no longer willing to send their children over, but I did not expect that gymnastics has reached the highest level in the country The top eight of the tournaments have been missed."
He continued to reveal, “Nowadays athletes are really very difficult. Not only do they have to compete for the first place, but they also have to meet the standards of other sports. They really require very comprehensive requirements, and now they lack a diploma. Setting a standard for language, mathematics, and English is basically a comprehensive development of morality, intelligence and physical, but it seems that the implementation of physical testing is so strong that it will definitely continue, but can it be more humane?" One thing I really don’t understand is why this physical test must be conducted during the competition? The Olympic Games did not arrange physical fitness test qualifying during the competition.”
In fact, this is not the first time that Li Shixin has questioned the physical test. Not long ago, he publicly advertised Sun Yang on the Internet: "It is estimated that (if) Sun Yang can be confident of winning the lawsuit, he will fall under the standard of 3 kilometers. "However, his old leader Zhou Jihong has clearly stated that he will continue to adhere to the physical fitness test. After all, Xu Jiayu and others were able to break the world record held by the US team in the relay competition because of strengthening physical fitness training.
