 Is it necessary for sports teams to test their physical fitness with fitness cards?

For example, in the National Swimming Championship held in Qingdao these days, five athletes ranked first in the preliminaries, such as Fu Yuanhui, Wang jianjiahe and Yu Hexin, all missed the final because of their low scores in physical fitness test. It is worth mentioning that Wang jianjiahe also broke the Asian record of womens 1500m in the competition with the result of 15:45.59.

Wang jianjiahe finished third in the womens 200m freestyle preliminaries on the evening of the 29th with a time of 1:58.45, but failed to make the final for the third time because of his physical test.

The reason for such deviation from the outside worlds cognition is that the swimming center of the General Administration of sport of the peoples Republic of China has issued new regulations on this event, which includes physical fitness competition and swimming competition.

If the physical test score is not in the top 8, you can only accept the result of being eliminated.

In fact, it is not only the swimming event that stands to the C position in this big discussion of physical fitness test, but also in the National Gymnastics Championship held in recent days.

Due to the fact that too many athletes were eliminated because of their physical fitness test, only 5 people (normally 8 people) were left to compete in the final of womens vaulting horse race. As a result, the player who ranked last in the qualification competition was added to the final by virtue of his outstanding performance in the physical fitness test.

This directly led to a great reduction in the competitive level of the final. Some athletes even chose the ultra simple action with the difficulty coefficient of only 2.0, and won the fifth place in the country And such action appears in the finals of the national championship, it is inevitable that there is some embarrassment.

In the final of the National Gymnastics Championship, the difficulty coefficient is only 2.0.

Also in the National Fencing Championship held on the 29th, none of the womens heavyweight team champions of the 2019 World Championships were selected into the top 8, among which Sun Yiwen and Lin Sheng stopped in the top 16 due to their physical fitness test results.

For these do not conform to the past cognition of things, netizens thoroughly fried pot.

Some netizens said: physical fitness can be a part of performance, but it is too absolute to be the only one that decides life and death. After all, physical fitness is to assist the major, and the major still depends on the results. Physical fitness can affect performance, but we cant use physical fitness to determine performance. There are specialized skills, and the muscles of athletes who train specially are different...

For competitive sports training, physical fitness is divided into basic physical fitness and special physical fitness. For a long time, there has been a phenomenon in Chinas training field that emphasizes special physical fitness but ignores basic physical fitness. To change this problem, it is very important to change consciousness and follow science. Chen said.

Liu Aijie, chairman of China Rowing Association and China Canoeing Association, said in an interview with the media: with the development of society, there is no such perfect three-level training network in the growth channel of sports talents in China. The short board of physical fitness, especially the short board of basic physical fitness, is more prominent than before.

Liang Chunze, director of the shooting center of the General Administration of sport of the peoples Republic of China, believes that in the Tokyo Olympic cycle, the introduction of some new rules also puts forward higher requirements for athletes physical fitness. For example, the shooting events in the Olympic Games have increased the number of bullets, the number of targets in the flying saucer, and the addition of mixed team events. As a result, the competition time of athletes has been prolonged, and some excellent athletes can even take part in three events.

These have put forward higher requirements for athletes, especially high-level athletes, for their special strength, endurance and balance ability. Strengthening the basic physical training is of great benefit to the athletes to improve their skills, temper their willpower, maintain their mental state and prevent injuries and diseases Liang Chun said.

In view of Wang jianjiahes performance in the swimming championship, song Kai, director of Liaoning Provincial Sports Bureau, said that Wang jianjiahe had been training in Liaoning for nearly half a year. Her height of 1.86 meters made it very difficult for her to do a good pull-up. However, in the national championship, her pull-up was full score, which showed that she was very hard-working in physical training and could play in the competition this time Record breaking just reflects the effect of early physical training.

However, it can also be seen that her physical development is still not balanced enough, which needs to be further strengthened. Song Kai said: Wang Jian Jiahe is a talented athlete. We have high expectations and high requirements for her. Next, according to the characteristics of the project and individual, we will explore ways to enhance basic physical fitness and special physical fitness.

With the National Day period, more and more sports competitions will start one after another. It can be predicted that the discussion on physical fitness test will continue.

However, as a professional athlete, it is always necessary to have sufficient physical reserve. From this point of view, the original intention of pulling physical strength is not wrong. If a breakthrough is made in physical fitness, it is also conducive to the athletes to impact better places.

But on the other hand, does the way of combining physical fitness test with competition also need to be adjusted? As Yu Hongchen, vice president of China Track and Field Association, said, the association will not only design and launch the 2.0 version of relevant standards, but also launch a more advanced version 3.0 for the national team world champion model design.

The reporter learned that the competent department has planned to prescribe different prescriptions according to different projects in the future. There are also media reports that relevant departments have been collecting opinions, listening to feedback, absorbing suggestions, and will be integrated into the next step of the reform plan, constantly improving the physical fitness evaluation system, guiding training and competition more scientifically and reasonably, so as to implement the actual recruitment and do a good job.

It is worth noting that, also on September 29, the national physical fitness training camp base was officially launched. In the future, it will undertake the physical training needs of the national teams in summer and winter, and help each team to train more scientifically and efficiently. Meanwhile, the national high level sports performance coach training camp will be held.
