On the evening of December 18th, Beijing time, the 2022 Short-course Swimming World Championships came to an end in Melbourne, Australia, and this year’s world swimming competitions also came to an end. This year’s World Championships in Short-course Swimming set off a record-breaking frenzy. From the world records and competition records alone, 14 world records and 23 competition records have been refreshed, and the number of record-breaking events far exceeds that of the World Championships in Long-course Swimming held in June this year, reflecting that the world swimming level has fully recovered.
In contrast, China, which is full of ambition to go to this short-course World Championships, still has a big gap with expectations because some of its main players are suddenly ill. However, behind the overall lackluster performance of the China team, we can also see that Zhang Yufei, Qin Haiyang, Yan Zibei, Tang Qianting and Pan Zhanle have made great progress in some projects.
