On September 28, in the 2020 National Swimming Championships and Tokyo Olympics qualifying competition in Qingdao, Olympic champion Ye Shiwen swam 4:43.93 in the women's 400m individual medley preliminaries, ranking third in the group and fourth overall. However, she failed to qualify for the final due to the physical test failure (ninth place). Yu Yiting, a 15-year-old boy born in 2005, beat Ye Shiwen in 4:40.48 and won the first place in the group.
Earlier, the 18-year-old star Wang Jian Jiahe, born in 2002, won the first place again in the women's 800m freestyle with 8 minutes 20.96 minutes. However, she still missed the final due to her previous physical test results.
Yesterday, Wang Jian Jiahe swam 15 minutes 45.59 seconds in the women's 1500m preliminaries, leading the second place by nearly 29 seconds and successfully breaking the Asian record held by him. However, because her physical fitness test scores did not meet the standard, she missed the final.
According to the regulations of this competition, among the top 16 contestants with preliminary results, the top eight contestants with physical performance will enter the final. The physical performance is the same, and then enter the final according to the swimming ranking.
It is understood that the physical fitness test items include 10 items including 30-meter sprint, pull-ups, bench press, squat, and 3000-meter run.
