"Strong strengths are stronger and weaker." This slogan hangs in the eye-catching position of the Gymnasium of the National Sports General Administration Training Bureau. For the Chinese gymnastics team that just entered the winter training, the guiding significance is self-evident.
After experiencing the "Waterloo" of the Rio Olympic Games, in 2017, the Chinese gymnastics team ushered in a very difficult year. The change in the new rules has brought new challenges to the team. It is necessary to “turn over” at the Tokyo Olympics and become the common goal of the team.
The winter training that has begun recently has become one of the key links in the team's level. Ling Zhongyi, director of the Gymnastics Administration Center of the State Sports General Administration, said that in this winter training, the Chinese gymnastics team must first earnestly improve the level and improve the layout, in line with the development trend of the world gymnastics. Second, physical fitness training should be especially strengthened to reduce injuries while improving ability.
It is reported that in the new Olympic cycle, the Chinese gymnastics team will receive more support from the State Sports General Administration in respect of team protection and technology support. At present, the physical fitness team and the physical rehabilitation team are in place, and the video playback system has also been initially built to ensure that the winter training is more scientific and more effective.
In the new Olympic cycle, the International Gymnastics Federation has changed the setting of previous years' schedules, arranging the games more densely and with higher intensity. It is reported that from February next year, international competitions such as gymnastics cups will start one after another. Heavy gymnastics events will follow every month. The World Cup Series will also become a very important part of the new cycle of the Olympic Qualification. Zhai Zhongyi said: “We need to actively change our thinking, update our concepts, and seriously study the International Gymnastics Federation’s qualification system for the Olympic Games and actively adapt to the new competition system. ."
In the new Olympic cycle, the Chinese gymnastics team puts forward a new slogan “Pray for groups, fight for all-round ability, and take singles,” hoping to start from the aspect of improving “soft power” and make full use of it to raise the level. "China Gymnastics has been born out of such influential star athletes as Li Ning and Yang Wei. Why is it now?" said Ye Zhennan, the leader of the Chinese gymnastics team. "Now athletes have insufficient temperament and infectious power on the game because we are too On the microscopic level, we have neglected the training of athletes as a whole, including the cultivation of cultural literacy. Therefore, in this winter training, we must work hard in these areas to deepen athletes' understanding of the project and enhance the entire team during the Olympic period in Tokyo. The competitiveness."
