On the evening of September 27th, in the preliminaries of the National Swimming Championships and Tokyo Olympics qualifying women’s 100m freestyle, the 22-year-old Jiangsu team star Zhang Yufei broke the national record for the event with a time of 52.90. This result raised the national record originally set by Pang Jiaying in 2009 by 0.23 seconds. The player who used the butterfly as the main event broke the national record for freestyle, which Zhang Yufei felt incredible. After catching the water, Zhang Yufei muttered "How did I break the freestyle record".
Recalling the scene at the time, Zhang Yufei said: "The audience was very silent and there was no sound. When I got to the side, I looked back at 52 seconds 9. I thought I was wrong, so I looked back and confirmed it again. Unbelievable, very excited! It may be the freestyle record that I broke!" Breaking the national record undoubtedly gave Zhang Yufei more confidence, "This is the first record I broke since participating in a swimming competition. I hope this is a good start, and I will strive to stay in the future. More and more records belong to me."
In the 100m freestyle final held on September 28, Zhang Yufei and 18-year-old Shandong team rookie Yang Junxuan were both strong contenders for the championship. Zhang Yufei led Yang Junxuan by 0.34 seconds in the 50 meters ahead, but lost to his opponent in the final sprint stage. In the end, Yang Junxuan took the lead with a score of 53.57. Zhang Yufei finished second with a slight disadvantage of 0.02 seconds. Although he failed to continue to create a "miracle" to win the finals, Zhang Yufei's performance is still remarkable. Both her and Yang Junxuan's results have reached the Olympic A standard.
Mentioned the reason for breaking the national record in the freestyle event, Zhang Yufei attributed it to the improvement of physical fitness. "Butterfly and freestyle short-distance events have something in common. The physical fitness and speed of the butterfly have also improved after the freestyle. Since winter training, I have strengthened the physical fitness the most, and the most important thing in the short-distance event is physical fitness.
Physical fitness is Zhang Yufei's strength, and she is also a pacesetter in physical training in the national swimming team. In the fitness test before the competition, Zhang Yufei scored 45 points, ranking second among the top 16 players in the women's 100m freestyle preliminaries. Zhang Yufei believes that the most obvious manifestation of the strengthening of physical training is in his main event, the 100-meter butterfly. In the previous team test, Zhang Yufei achieved a personal best of 56.29 seconds in the 100-meter butterfly, which also gave her more expectations and confidence in the upcoming 100-meter butterfly preliminaries on the 29th. "I have always had ideas for the 100-meter butterfly, and I have had ideas since March of this year, so I have been looking forward to this competition, hoping to swim out of my goal."
