 He Yinli tells the sprint case: Suzhou Marathon Organizing Committee: no statement.


Event playback:

On November 18, the 2018 Suzhou (Taihu) Marathon started in drizzle with 30,000 runners from 37 countries and regions.

The controversy arose in the final sprint of the womens group competition. He Yingli, a Chinese player, was doing her best to compete with African players for the championship. At this time, a volunteer suddenly appeared on the track, trying to hand a flag to He Yingli, but failed to hand it over. The volunteers then began to chase He Yinli, but they were quickly thrown away.

But we cant catch up. A volunteer dressed in a black down jacket soon appeared in front of He Yinli. This time, she put the national flag in her hands directly.

Seen from the live TV, He Yinli was a little helpless when she got the national flag, and the original rhythm of the competition was disrupted. After running several times with her flag, the flag fell to the ground.

The live picture also showed that second volunteers objectively blocked the route of African athletes.

But it seems to have a greater impact on He Yingli. She had a weak advantage and then lost the championship regrettably.

There is also question about why to pass the national flag.

Because CCTV broadcast the marathon live, some people posted the sprint pictures on the Internet. The video clearly recorded the whole process of throwing the flag. Because the topic is quite sensitive, this video has caused a great stir.

Some people believe that even if holding the national flag affects the performance of the competition, but can not throw the national flag, after all, this is the symbol of the country, can not be measured by a gold medal. For example, Wei Jing, a marathon runner, criticized He Yinli does not respect the national flag on her personal micro-blog, saying, He Yinli first kneaded the national flag into a ball, then abandoned it and left it on the ground in the dust... Is achievement more important than national flag?

Some netizens think that He Yinli shouldnt be like this, but a large number of netizens have expressed their understanding of his behavior, believing that He Yinli is not wrong, and many marathon fans have pointed out that those who have not run a marathon do not understand the situation of the runners at that time, and the whole marathon run to the end is basically only the instinct to run. All depends on perseverance. The final state of the sprint is different between high-level athletes and ordinary marathon fans. You can see that they are striding. In fact, at that time, their physical condition was not relaxed at all. Therefore, in international competitions, high-level athletes often see the collapse of running.

More netizens questioned why volunteers repeatedly handed him the national flag at that stage, when he was in a clinging position to compete for the second place with a black player. At this time, it was a pure mess, disrupting the rhythm of He Yinli, and as a result, she was disturbed and ranked second. This arrangement is amazing. Cant the runners fly in the flag when they cross the finish line?

He Yinli responds to purple bull news

I cant catch it. My arms are stiff and my hands are numb.

Faced with doubts, He Shengli explained on Weibo: I didnt throw it, the flag was all wet, my arm was stiff, and I threw it out when I swing my arm. Im sorry, I hope to understand! Then He Shengli responded to Wei Jing in the circle of friends: When I came on stage to receive the prize, I volunteered to wear the flag, which is enough to prove my patriotism. Please do not mislead the unknown friend.

The Yangtze Evening News reporter Ziniu then contacted the party He Yingli through various channels. He Yingli said, I didnt intentionally want to cross the finish line with the national flag. This is only the last 300 meters in competition with African players. It is not convenient to flag the flag. You see, I ran across the finish line with my flag on both sides of the Changsha marathon.

He then explained why he could easily take over the national flag sprint in the Changsha Marathon. She said, I was the third international runner in Changsha that time, and there were still some distance between me and the first two runners, but there were many leading runners behind me. That situation had no effect on the ranking even after crossing the finish line. So this is a different situation. It doesnt mean that I dont want to sprint with the national flag. He then explained the Suzhou Marathon in detail. She said, It was raining that day and I couldnt catch it when I tried to force myself to hold the flag. Its cold, arms stiff, hands numb.

It is illegal for volunteers to occupy the track.

He Yinli: this behavior really affects grades.

However, more netizens found a paradox in this video: Why do volunteers appear in succession on such a fierce race track? And the second female volunteer in black down jacket in the video, standing directly in the middle of the track, not only affected He Yanli, but also blocked the sprint line of African athletes. Did the organizers just let it go?

Lu Jidong, Director of Physical Education Department of Shanghai University of Finance and Economics and International Track and Field Referee, also said in an interview with the media that besides a fixed drinking water station, volunteers can not violate the rules and step on the track. If there are violations to help athletes, even athletes will be disqualified.

According to the IAAF manual, only two staff members are allowed to hold banners before the end of the race, waiting for the champion, and even the referee can not step on the track. The practice of the Taihu marathon itself is illegal. If you must pass the national flag, it is also after the game. This can be seen in this years Boston Marathon, where even if the native American won the first womens team championship in 33 years, no one handed her the flag before the dash, and no one handed it to the staff until the end of the race.

As for whether the volunteers handing over the national flag on the track has an impact on the results of the competition, the party He Yinli told the Yangtze Evening News Ziniu reporter: The situation depends. Specifically, he Yinli said: At that time, the distance from the finish line was only 300 meters, although the marathon was bigger than the marathon, but at that time, the distance from the last 300 meters was bigger than the marathon. At this time, any slight interference will definitely have an impact on the final ranking.

Volunteers personal behavior?

Netizens call it a throw pot suspicion.

Because volunteer violations appear on the track, directly interfering with He Yinlis final sprint, affecting the final runner-up ranking, many netizens, especially those who have personally participated in the marathon, come out to make Liming unfair. Netizens commented, Patriotic in heart, I believe that normal people will not deliberately insult the flag, the final stage of the whole horse depends on that tone, if you disrupt that tone, and then slowly come back, it is estimated that the opponents have reached the end. I dont think she is wrong.

Some netizens also questioned the organizing committees arrangement: This event has its own problems, how can volunteers go in directly? Pear Video APP published telephone recordings of interviews with contractor staff. Authoritative media such as Peoples Network also forwarded the recordings. The telephone recordings showed that the volunteers may be out of patriotism, hoping that our Chinese athletes will carry the national flag across the terminal point. The guest asked, is this a volunteers personal behavior or an official arrangement? The staff said: at present, I understand that there is no such arrangement. From the competition point of view, we do not allow referees and other people to enter the track, she (referring to female volunteers) may be an expression of personal feelings. The official said that the volunteer who had not yet found the case was not clear. We are getting to know the situation. We are contacting the Field Administration Center of the General Administration and the Tian Association. I dont think anyone should be held accountable. First, let me know about the situation and ask her to further improve her work in the future.

Official Response on the Internet, and triggered a wave of hot debate, the vast majority of netizens think that such a statement is clearly a throw pot suspect.

Five

The organizing committee denied the official statement.

A formal response will be given.

Since then, some netizens have published a document about the rules of the suspected Running China competition, which says: about 200 meters before the marathon sprint, prepare two sides of the No. 4 national flag, set up a special person to wait for the Chinese national leader, pass the national flag to the runner, ask the runner to wear the national flag or raise the national flag with both hands across the finish line. The Suzhou marathon is just a one-stop race in the running China series. Yangtze Evening News reporter Ziniu consulted his personal micro-blog and found that on July 23, he posted pictures of himself running the Guiyang International Marathon collision line in China, which was also held high the national flag. He Yinli also crossed the finish line with the national flag and won the third place in this years Changsha Marathon Running China. In this sense, it is obviously untenable to volunteer the national flag.

In the afternoon, Sina Sports also released a response from the organizers: The first three Chinese runners in the marathon wear the national flag to cross the line, which is the specific requirement of theRunning Chinaseries of events.

What is the truth of the matter? In order to verify this, the Yangtze Evening News reporter Ziniu first called Zhimei Sports Group, because the materials of Running China show that the event is co-sponsored by China Athletics Association and CCTV, and operated by Zhimei Sports Group and hosted by Zhimei Shangde Sports Group. However, after learning about the reporters interview intention, the company staff said that they wanted to seek the companys leaderships opinion on this matter, and then she left behind the phone and interview questions of the Yangtze Evening News reporter Ziniu, saying that she would reply thereafter. However, until the deadline, Chi Mei still did not contact the Yangtze Evening News purple bull news reporter. Subsequently, Yangtze Evening News Ziniu reporters interviewed the Organizing Committee of the Suzhou Marathon through Director Xi of the Competition Management Center of the Suzhou Sports Bureau. In the telephone, the staff made it clear: This is not our official statement, and there is no such response on the official Wechat platform of our event. Yangzi Evening News reporter asked whether there was any response to this matter. When to give a response? It is understood that an official response will be given today, but the exact time is not known, the staff member said. Since then, the Yangtze Evening News reporter Ziniu also contacted the China Tianxie Association. The staff of the Tianxie Association said, We have attached great importance to this matter since it came out, and we are also learning about it through the organizing committee.
