Q: How did you consider clearing all the points for the previous Olympic selection?
Answer: Because of the postponement of the Olympic Games, changes will take place this year. The previous games will be used as a reference for overall strength. . This stop and the national champions in January and May next year will be the Olympic trials (take the two best results), and there will be the World Cup in April (the results of this stop and January will be the World Cup selection). After all, there is still more than a year, and the athletes are still changing in training and competition, so the settings are reset.
Question: How are the athletes preparing for the close period of nearly nine months?
Answer: Judging from the women's stage preliminaries, the old players have experienced much competition and have not been affected by the environment. Young athletes have relatively strong training capabilities. However, because there has been no competition for nearly a year, the ability to adapt from a small venue to a large venue is still lacking.
Q: Will the Olympic lineup change?
Answer: It depends on the performance of the athletes. In the past, the competition was fierce, and there may be some newcomers coming out to impact the old players. The resetting of the Olympic selection can encourage old athletes to work harder, and young athletes have more opportunities.
Q: Why is there only one event in this competition?
Answer: Because everyone hasn't competed in a year, the double event has to be cross-province, and it takes more than ten athletes to train to compete with the double. At this stage, the level of the single player is improved, and the double player also needs to perform better on the basis of the single player. If the single player cannot reach the level, it is of little significance than the double player. So concentrate on improving the single player's level. The double Olympic selection will only refer to the results in January and May next year.
Question: Why did Cao Yuan participate in the men's singles 10-meter platform?
Answer: The year before last year, Cao Yuan participated in the singles competition in the Shantou National Championship. Judging from the training performance and results, he has the ability. This competition only has a single event, and there is time to participate, just to maintain his level of board and stage. His board and stage are very comprehensive. He debuted in the platform. After 2012, the men's 3-meter board is relatively lacking. He also has the ability to attack the board, so he changed the item. He is now practicing in both events. From the perspective of his recovery, it took two months. The time is a bit shorter and has not yet recovered to the highest level, but he can do some trials and exercises. The 10-meter platform is not here for soy sauce, but the competition for this project is fierce, and it depends on his own performance.
Question: Does the postponement of the Olympics have a greater impact on Shi Tingmao?
Answer: She has reached a certain age and is also troubled by injuries, but she is still very tenacious. At this stage, I hope Shi Tingmao can make better adjustments and restart again in winter. For her, the Olympic Qualification Tournament is not technically difficult, mainly in terms of ideology and spirit, and she has to re-energize her.
Question: How far is her current strength from Rio peak?
Answer: Time is enough, but it depends on her training state and mental reserves at this stage.
