With the 2018 National Swimming Championships & Asian Games Trails closing in Taiyuan, Shanxi province yesterday (on 18 April 2018), Liu Xiang and Sun Yang, women’s and men’s big fishes respectively representing Guangdong Hosa team, and Yan Zibei and Li Bingjie, “the prince in breaststroke” and “the genius girl” respectively, representing Hubei Hosa team, all won the championships at the last day, believing that their results need to be improved further and expecting to “meet better themselves” at the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games.

Glory of Hosa


Hosa Group, as a sponsor of the 2018 National Swimming Championships & Jakarta Asian Games Trails and a title sponsor of a provincial-level swimming team comprising of 11 participating groups, won 16 gold medals, 17 silver medals and 17 bronze medals at the meet.

Highlights

Liu Xiang, Guangdong Hosa Team


Won a gold in the Women's 50m Freestyle, and

A silver in the Women's 50m Backstroke

Liu Xiang, who broke two Asian records in the Women’s 50m freestyle successively at the National Games last year, topped in 24.80 seconds at the preliminary yesterday and then upgraded her results to 24.55 seconds at the final, bagging the fourth gold for the Guangdong Hosa team. The Guangdong Hosa team won a total of 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals and 3 bronze medals, the same number of gold medals as that of last year.

However, Liu Xiang’s result yesterday was far behind her Asian record of 24.04 seconds made at the last year’s National Games. She was not very satisfied with her performance at the final. “I think this result could also be made in my training with better condition. I felt not very tired after the swimming, and my passion was not activated,” she said, believing that the high altitude in Taiyuan attributed to her poor results partially. “Especially in holding breath, when swimming 25 meters, I felt a little uncomfortable and extremely tired afterwards.”

 “Such a bad state deserved this result, but if competing against the Japanese rivals in 50m freestyle at the Asian Games, further experience summary is needed,” Liu Xiang said in respect to the Asian Games. “No matter how many records they (the Japanese rivals) have broken, I think it is no use, the one who can win at the Asian Games is really the best. I am very confident,” she also pointed out with strong confidence.

Yan Zibei, Hubei Hosa Team


Won a gold in the Men's 100m Breaststroke,

A gold in the Men’s 50m Breaststroke, and

A silver in the Men’s 200m Breaststroke

Yan Zibei from Hubei Hosa team snatched the victory in the men’s 50m breaststroke in 27.16 seconds, breaking the Asian record of 27.17 seconds.

After the game, Yan Zibei said that he had not a thought of breaking record when swimming but only focused on his own pace, the result was unexpectedly better. In respect to the upcoming Jakarta Asian Games, he was full of confidence. “I expect a fierce battle with the Japanese rivals,” he said.

Wang Jianjiahe, Liaoning Hosa Team


Won a gold in the women’s 1500m freestyle,

A gold in the women’s 800m freestyle, and

A silver in the women’s 400m freestyle

During the 13th National Games held in Tianjin, Wang Jianjiahe was shadowed under the sunshine of Li Bingjie, but she surpassed Li Bingjie in several meets afterwards, bagging gold medals in the National Swimming Championships, FINA Swimming World Cup held at the end of last year and USA Swimming Series held early this year. She won the champion in the women’s 1500m freestyle starting initially in the 2018 National Swimming Championships in 15 minutes 53.01 seconds and also won the champion in the women’s 800m freestyle in 8 minutes 22.65 seconds.

Stars Focus

Sun Yang


The Olympic champion Sun Yang took all his registered swimming games to the end, with bagging 4 gold medals and 1 bronze medal. In the mixed zone, Sun Yang was excited with tears. “It was very difficult especially in the latter two days, but I stuck with it,” he said. “I had been drinking salt water before entering the arena, because my tonsils were raw and very painful, and my throat was very dry when swimming in the middle,” he also revealed. During this Championships, he was even treated after 23:00 every day.

 “I think my results at this Championships in Taiyuan are very good, because I have always performed badly in high altitude since my childhood, after all, I am taller, so my energy consumption is also relatively bigger,” Sun Yang said in a proud manner, adding that he swam little in the 1500m events, so it would need a difficult period for him to recover his good performance and there would be a new round of training afterwards after a short break. “I will be in good coordination with my coach in the following periods, expecting a better Sun Yang to be seen at the Asian Games, to win in an easier and more resounding way for the Chinese swimming team,” he said.

Fu Yuanhui


 

Another focus at this Championships was Fu Yuanhui, as her results in games showed so differently that the suspicion of retiring sieged for a time. On the first match day, she was unexpectedly out and released an astonishing statement of “may retire” with black mood when the audience guessed how she would broke through the 200m backstroke preliminary. Soon afterwards, the topics of “cannot afford a team doctor” and “speculation” fermented online.

 

However, on the third match day, she won the title in the 50m backstroke final and won another bronze medal at the following 100m backstroke final. Behind the good performance was her hard struggle, evidenced by scratches appearing on her arms again. “If you don’t make all your efforts, you will not be so quick,” she said, adding at an interview during games that she did not really want to retire, but her injuries did seriously affect her performance. If the situation permits, she also hoped that she would swim happily all the time, as she also has an expectation for her career and expects to realize it.
