Whether it is increasing the difficulty of training or enlarging the details of preparations, putting the difficulties ahead and making relevant preparations, it reflects the attitude of Chinese athletes to strive for excellence and the determination to “make every effort to make further progress.”
Liu Shiwen/Xu Xin lost the game and Ma Long was shown a yellow card in the game. In the just-concluded Olympic warm-up match of the Chinese table tennis team, “finding trouble” for the Olympic players became the key word.
How to “make trouble”? Liu Shiwen/Xu Xin not only have to play against the mixed doubles players, but also against the men’s doubles. In the matchup with the men’s doubles, Liu Shiwen/Xu Xin were defeated by their opponents in the lead. Malone wiped the table with his hand during the game, and this habitual action of the table tennis player did not meet the epidemic prevention requirements of the Tokyo Olympics, so he received a yellow card.
Simulating the Olympic environment and setting up unconventional confrontations, Guoping tried every means to create difficulties for the players, the purpose is to help the athletes to check for omissions in the preparation for the sprint stage, and handle every link well. The loss allowed Liu Shiwen/Xu Xin to see that the two people still have room for improvement in terms of service and stability; the yellow card also reminded Malone: You must adapt to the rules and rhythm of the Olympics in advance, and you can be more calm in the Olympics.
Like the Chinese table tennis team, deliberately “finding trouble” has become a training “subject” for many national sports teams in China during the sprint preparation for the Olympics. In order to increase the intensity of the confrontation, the Chinese women’s basketball team chooses to play a warm-up match with the men’s basketball team to improve the players’ various abilities during training. The Chinese taekwondo team and the Chinese karate team also increase the difficulty in the training session. Female players compete with the male sparring team, while male players have to challenge higher-level players. When players find rhythm in higher-quality training, they can also make progress. It’s a matter of course.
Progress is also inseparable from the control of details. In the first two Olympic trials, the Chinese men’s gymnastics team made some mistakes. In the last trial held a few days ago, the players performed well. The performance of “zero mistakes” also brought confidence to the team. Why is everyone’s condition getting better and better? The secret lies in not letting go of every detail, adjust and solve the problem in time after discovering the problem, and handle all the links carefully and then carefully.
Whether it is increasing the difficulty of training or enlarging the details of preparations, putting the difficulties ahead and making relevant preparations, it reflects the attitude of Chinese athletes to strive for excellence and the determination to “make every effort to make further progress.” The Tokyo Olympics is about to open, and Chinese athletes are stepping up their preparations. I wish every athlete can show their best on the Olympic stage and achieve satisfactory results.
