Recently, according to the official website of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College, swimming Olympic champion Sun Yang was appointed deputy director of the Training Department of the college.
Guanhai Jiebo noted that there are not a few Olympic champions who choose to take part in politics after retirement, but it is rare for the athletes to be officials at the rank of division.
The First Class of Players in Service
According to the official website of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College, Sun Yangs name is prominently listed in the column Institutions and Personnel of the Training Department of the college, and his position is deputy director.
The Guanhai Bureau noted that Sun Yang was the first ranking of Chinese athletes in active service.
The School of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College disclosed to Guanhai Bureau that Sun Yang was appointed Deputy director, a career editor, not a civil servant.
In addition, Sun Yangs official support group confirmed the news on August 11 and sent out a good news through social platforms.
Netizens have also left messages to Big White Poplar to send wishes: During the service as a director, too rare, next time see him: Sun Jihao, Congratulations to Yang Ge, I feel that Yang retired after a great career... __________.
Sun Yang was born on December 1, 1991 in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. He joined the Communist Party of China in July 2012 and is now the captain of the Chinese swimming team. He is the first Grand Slam player in the world to win 200, 400, 800 and 1500 meters gold medals in mens Freestyle in the World Championships.
The results are worth seeing.
In the London 2012 Olympic Games, he won the mens 400-meter freestyle championship and became the first mans swimming Olympic champion in China.
In the 2013 Barcelona Rome World Championship, he won the mens 400m, 800m and 1500m freestyle championships.

The appointment time of Tong Yanfei, director of the Training Department, was not officially disclosed, but according to the news on the Colleges official website, Tong Yanfei had held the post at least before May 18, 2018.
So what do they need to do when they are cadres of the Training Department?

When asked if he planned to be the head of the swimming center in the future, Sun Yang answered, Chairman Zhou (Zhou Jihong) is one of the most outstanding leaders. I am also the deputy director of the Training Department of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College. Of course, I want to fight for it, but whether I can be competent depends on my ability and ability. Leadership arrangements, at present, still need to do a good job of training.
Sixty percent of retired Olympic champions are in politics
Guanhai Jiebo has noticed that most of the athletes in our country turn into official career after retirement. As a major sports province, Zhejiang Province alone has many retired Olympic champions in politics.
For example, Zhou Suhong, a former Chinese womens volleyball team member, won the 2004 Athens Olympic championship. After retirement, Zhou Suhong returned to Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College. He is the deputy secretary and member of the Zhejiang Provincial Committee of the Communist Youth League and the director of the Department of Ball in Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College.
Former Chinese mens table tennis player Lu Lin, the first Olympic table tennis champion in Zhejiang Province, was once the director of the Little Ball Event Center of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College, and is currently a member and deputy director of the Party Group of Zhejiang Sports Bureau.
Another example is Zhan Xugang, a former member of the Chinese mens weightlifting team. He won the gold medal in the mens weightlifting 70kg class at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and broke three world records. In 2000, Sydney Olympic Games won the gold medal of mens weightlifting 77 kilograms again, becoming the first Chinese mens weightlifting champion in succession. Zhan Xugang was the vice-captain of Zhejiang Sports Team, the director of the Department of Heavy Competition of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College, and the vice-president of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College. In 2015, he served as member, Standing Committee and deputy county head of Sanmen County, Taizhou City, Zhejiang Province. Zhan Xugang is now Deputy secretary, president and Secretary of the Party Committee of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College.
Looking at the whole country, such as Deng Yaping, Yao Ming, Xu Haifeng, and so on, are also on the way to politics after retirement.
In August 2016, there were media reports that 60% of Chinas retired Olympic champions entered government agencies or institutions.
Vice Director Sun Yang has been in office for more than a year.
Sun Yang went on a hot search again, this time because his new identity was exposed. Originally, besides being an athlete, Sun Yang was also the deputy director of the Training Department of Zhejiang Sports Vocational and Technical College, which made him the first athlete with a rank in service.
