(Tokyo Olympics) The first stage training of the Chinese gymnastics team attracts attention and adjusts the state to welcome the game
China News Service, Tokyo, July 21 (Reporter Yue Chuan) The Chinese gymnastics team completed the first stage training after arriving in Tokyo on the 21st. Ye Zhennan, the deputy leader of the Chinese gymnastics team, said that everything is normal for the team, and it is necessary to adapt to the atmosphere of the Olympic Games as much as possible at the moment and meet the competition with a good physical and mental state.
As one of the main forces of the Chinese Legion to compete for gold and silver in the Olympics, the performance of the Chinese gymnastics team in the Rio Olympics was not satisfactory. After five years of hard work, the outside world has paid more attention and expectation to the team’s trip.
The Chinese gymnastics team arrived in Tokyo at noon on the 18th local time, but it was past midnight when they settled in the Olympic Village. So in the past two days, the team focused on recovery and adjustment.
According to Miao Zhongyi, the leader of the Chinese gymnastics team, although the itinerary on the day of arrival was relatively tossing, everything was normal in the past two days. There was no problem in all aspects including rest after entering the Olympic Village. The team was in good condition.
On the 21st, the men’s stage training was conducted. Six Chinese players including Xiao Ruoteng, Zou Jingyuan, Sun Wei, Lin Chaopan, You Hao, and Liu Yang made their appearances.
Due to the completion of preparations for adapting to the lighting and equipment of the venue, each team attaches great importance to stage training, and the Chinese team is no exception. Through on-site inspections, the teams themselves can make corresponding adjustments to the lighting and other on-site conditions, minimizing the impact of objective factors during the game.
From the performance of training, everyone is in good condition. Ye Zhennan also revealed that everything is normal for the team. “After all, it’s an Olympic game. This kind of concentration is different. Everyone is very involved.”
The training of the Chinese team that day attracted many people’s attention. Since men’s gymnastics has always been the strength of the Japanese team, as the host, they also hope to have a good performance at home. Therefore, although the Chinese team’s platform training is scheduled in the morning, staggered from the time of the Japanese team that adapts to the venue in the afternoon, while the Chinese team is training, there have been real-time attention from the Japanese team’s staff, recording and communication from time to time.
But Ye Zhennan is not worried about this, he said this is normal. “Including the status of the athletes and the use of difficult movements, everyone will know each other, so this is normal. In fact, everyone has a better understanding of the strength of each team, and ultimately it depends on the performance of the athletes in the game. “
Chinese male gymnast and world champion Liu Yang said after finishing his training, because he uses the same equipment in domestic training, he is fairly comfortable in this regard, and his teammates are in good condition.
Due to injury, Xiao Ruoteng missed the Rio Olympics five years ago, so his trip to Tokyo was the first time he experienced the Olympic atmosphere at the age of 25. As the all-around champion of the World Championships, Xiao Ruoteng is also high hopes. He said frankly that after waiting for 5 years, he is still very happy to come to the Tokyo Olympic Games and he is in good condition.
In Ye Zhennan’s view, after all, the Olympic Games is different from other competitions in that the competition will be more intense, which places higher demands on athletes in terms of psychology and other aspects. The important thing before the game is to try to adapt to the atmosphere and environment of the Olympic Games, and to meet the game with a good physical and mental state.
According to the plan, the Chinese women’s gymnastics team composed of Tang Qianjing, Lu Yufei, Zhang Jin, Ou Yushan, Fan Yilin, Guan Chenchen and others will conduct their first stage training on the 22nd. (Finish)
