Kwangju, South Korea, July 24 (Reporter Zhou Xinlurui) On the evening of 24, Zhou Jihong, chairman of China Swimming Association, said that Chinese swimmers had made outstanding efforts in this World Swimming Championship. In response to criticism from the outside world about Sun Yang, Zhou Jihong said that he was incomprehensible and unacceptable.
As Zhou Jihong pointed out, Australian swimmers have publicly tarnished the innocence of an excellent swimmer, showing prejudice and irrationality, on the premise that they do not know the truth and that the FINA anti-doping team has already made a ruling that Sun Yang has not violated the rules. Before the hearing of the International Court of Sports Arbitration, the Australian Swimming Association publicly supported this behavior, which was incomprehensible and unacceptable. It was a violation of the international swimming world and the rules of sports, and a brutal injury to athletes.
Anyone should abide by the relevant regulations and have no right to be a judge. Zhou Jihong said.
