After Zhang Yufei broke the national record for the 100-meter freestyle,
After breaking the 100-meter freestyle record, Zhang Yufei was a little surprised. She said frankly that she hoped to achieve good results in her main event of 100 butterflies, but when it came to the results, she smiled embarrassedly: "I want to keep this secret."
The little girl was a little superstitious, thinking that it would not work to say it, and the final result was as she hoped: "My expectation is 56 seconds and a few minutes if it is slower, and 55 seconds 8 if it is faster."
In fact, before the game, Zhang Yufei felt that she was in very good condition. She was eager to play and proved the results of her 11 months of winter training: "This competition is our first competition since the epidemic. The winter training lasts for 11 months. From November last year to the present. For 11 months without competition, athletes will want to know how their state is. I think I have improved quite obviously, so I want to see how much I can swim during the game. This feeling is in my mind. I probably only appeared twice in my swimming career. The last time was in March this year. I also felt that I had improved significantly and wanted to show it."
After breaking the national record in the 100-meter freestyle, although he was a little surprised, he gave Zhang Yufei full confidence: "The first two days of competition were a good preparation and gave me confidence. In fact, I don’t care about the success of 100-meter freestyle swimming. I will be very relaxed even if it is only about 55 seconds."
But she was still a little unconfident. Before the game, she kept saying: "I'm very nervous!" The coach's words also gave her some comfort: "Don't think of yourself too weak, believe that you can come back when you rush out."
Today's result not only broke the Asian record, it was also quite close to the world record. When the reporter asked her if she thought about breaking the world record, she smiled: "I just thought about breaking the world record. I only thought of breaking the Asian record."
Will the record be broken in the final tomorrow? Zhang Yufei was quite relaxed: "Put it in your stomach, it would be embarrassing if it doesn't break."
