In the physical fitness test before the race, Xu Jiayu scored 47 points (out of 50 points), ranking second among the top 16 athletes in the 200m backstroke preliminaries.
To tell you the truth, Im afraid of running 3000 meters. Ive vomited during the test and Ive been injured. But we cant find an excuse for poor performance. We should find ways to improve our performance.
