23:11, the gap between China and Japan is widening gradually
Like Chinas national championship, the Japanese Championship also held 34 individual competitions. At last years Asian Games, China won 16 of these 34 individual Championships and Japan won 15. In addition, there are three other countries to win the championship. If the other countries are removed, the Chinese team will lead Japan by 18 to 16, which is similar in general. Compared with the whole tournament, the Japanese team defeated in the whole line. Among the 34 performance comparisons, the Chinese team led 23, while the Japanese team only had 11 advantages. Women are 4 to 13 lagging behind.
The Negative Effect of Chijiangs Withdrawal
Japans Womens Advantage Lost
Chijiang Lihua Zis freestyle and butterfly swimming are not the most popular Olympic gold medal contenders, but they are absolutely the most popular figure in the competition, and they are in the absolute leading position in Asia. After she quit because of illness, the Japanese womens team has been unable to compete with China in butterfly and freestyle. The legendary successor, Ben Lijia, has not played well either. She won the championship in 50 seconds from 25.02, which is not in the top 3 compared with Chinas championship, while Aoki Zhimei and Munokos 100-self and 100-butterfly Championships can only win bronze medals compared with Chinas championship.
Chi Jiang is the first bat of womens 4 x 100 and the third butterfly of womens 4 x 100 in the Japanese Relay Team. At last years Asian Games, the Japanese team defeated China by playing hard by Chijiang. Without her, no Japanese player can make up for the vacancy and lose the cost of confronting China.
Seto is also worthy of Japans number one swimmer
Can Song Yuankeyang really challenge Sun Yang?
Seto Da is also the most eye-catching player in this competition. He swims 1 minute 54 seconds 44 and 4 minute 09 seconds 08 in two main events - mens 200-meter butterfly and mens 400-meter individual medley. He ranks third in the world in 200-meter butterfly swimming. This year, Seto Da has entered 4 minutes 09 seconds 30 twice, and so far only his result in the world is within 4 minutes 12 seconds. The advantage is quite obvious. In the relative sub-item 200, Seto also swimmed a personal best of 1 minute, 56 seconds and 69 seconds, which was only 0.03 seconds slower than Wang Shuns victory in the national championship.
In the 200-meter freestyle, Song Yuankeyangs personal best swimming time is 1 minute, 45 seconds and 63 seconds, which surpasses Sun Yangs 1 minute, 45 seconds and 73 seconds in the national championship, temporarily becoming the first in the world this year. However, Songyuans achievements in the whole championship last year also exceeded Sun Yangs achievements in the national championship at that time. Only at the Asian Games, Songyuan is no match for the state in the whole championship. Whether Songyuan can challenge Sun Yangs real strength in this years World Championship is still a question.
Nakamura is not as good as He Junyi
Catching up with Ning Zetao and Fu Yuanhui is still a dream
Nakamura, once considered the most likely to break Ning Zetaos 100-year Asian record, won the tournament by himself in 100 seconds, but scored only 48.55 seconds, far below the level of two shots by He Junyi in the national championship in 48.10 seconds and 48.29 seconds. Nakamuras habit of swimming well in low-grade competitions is still a serious problem. Last year, Zhu Du won three gold medals in mens breaststroke in the Asian Games. Although 50 frogs and 100 frogs won the championship, they were all behind Yan Zibeis Championship results.
Sakai Xiahai, who won the womens 100-meter backstroke championship in the Asian Games last year, is a highly regarded new Asian backstroke star of the post-00s generation. However, although Sakai won the double championship of 50 and 100 backs this time, the result is very ordinary, the result of 50 backs is not in the top 3 of the Chinese Championship.
Although there is no competition at the same time, both events are outposts of the World Championships. Japan is far less than the Chinese swimming army in this campaign with all its efforts. However, competitive sports are changing rapidly, and only hope that this momentum will continue to Guangzhou in July.
