Olympics 1,500 freestyle : Sun Yang gold and new world record
I just watched Sun Yang setting the record for 14min 43.25 sec:
"I did not see the time clearly at first, then I saw it."
""I have gone through many things this year, training very hard in many places like Australia and Athens. The training environments were very challenging. My time reflects my training.""
I love swimming and watching the professionals is a ballet for me. Unfortunately little is said about the style of each swimmer and it's characteristics.
Race competitions are highly underestimated.
Congratulations Sun Yang! It was a beautiful spectacle and I would also cry if I was there.
