Original title: Physical fitness test postponed, cancellation of 3000-meter race, major adjustments to women's boxing championship policy
Yesterday afternoon, the China Boxing Association issued a notice through its official website, stating that the physical fitness test for the 2020 National Women’s Boxing Championships will be adjusted with the approval of the State Sports General Administration.
The specific adjustment plan is: cancel the 3000-meter test, and adjust the 30-meter sprint, vertical vertical jump, bench press maximum strength, and back muscle endurance to the 1/2 (semi-final) stage of the competition. Specifically, the top two enter the finals and the last two are eliminated.
Recently, in competitions including the National Swimming Championships, the National Gymnastics Championships and the National Fencing Championships, many celebrities missed the finals due to poor physical fitness tests. Take the National Swimming Championship as an example. In the competition, Fu Yuanhui won the first place in the preliminaries, Yu Hexin broke the national record, and Wang Jian Jiahe broke the Asian record. But she (them) all ranked low because of their physical performance and eventually missed the final. According to the rules of the competition, among the top 16 players in the preliminaries of this competition, the top eight players in physical performance will enter the final. The physical performance is the same, and then enter the final according to the swimming ranking. The physical fitness test includes 5 items, namely the vertical vertical jump, the 30-meter sprint, the pull-ups and the trunk core strength test (4 positions) and the 3000-meter time running test. What's more, the National Fencing Championship does not have special competitions in the 16th and 8th stages, only physical fitness tests, a total of 5 events, including seated forward bending and double flying skipping rope.
Subsequently, this phenomenon of "physical in command" triggered a heated discussion on the Internet, and most netizens said it was difficult to understand. It is understood that the State Sports General Administration recently held a special meeting in response to this situation. It is believed that the policy adjustment of the National Women’s Boxing Championship is related to it.
According to the "2020 National Women's Boxing Championship Competition Regulations" issued by the China Boxing Association on September 9, the event will be held in Qian'an, Hebei from October 17 to 22. The physical fitness test was originally scheduled to be conducted during the quarter of the competition. Eight athletes of each level will complete the five tests of the .30m sprint, vertical vertical jump, bench press maximum strength, back muscle endurance and 3000m run. The test adopts the points system, and the top four in comprehensive points enter the semi-finals. After this adjustment, the physical fitness test will be conducted during the 1/2 stage (semi-final), and the number of people at each level will be reduced to 4 accordingly. The top two in comprehensive points entered the final, and the last two were eliminated.
