On October 8, Beijing time, the Chinese swimming gold medal coach Zhu Zhigen recently celebrated his 63-year-old birthday. The disciples celebrated their birthday by the swimming pool. Although not grand, but warm and loving, the absence of Olympic champion Sun Yang also made netizens. We are full of emotion.
From the photo, you can see that Zhu Zhigen is wearing a birthday crown hat, and a group of disciples are surrounded by him. The picture of love has made netizens leave comments and praise: "Director Zhu has worked hard, healthy and healthy, everything goes well", "Brother Shun" Come on, go to the top with Director Zhu in the Tokyo Olympics", "I am quite emotional, Sun Yang is not in the Zhu Zhigen group, it is indeed a bit incomplete."
Going back to 3 years ago, Sun Yang prepared a birthday surprise for Zhu Zhigen. After experiencing unprecedented success, the pair broke up and returned to a good master and apprentice. This caused countless topics and discussions for a while. Regrettably, when Zhu Zhigen ushered in the last Olympic Games before his retirement, Sun Yang, the strongest apprentice, was no longer around. The latter was banned for eight years for resisting inspections, and his sports career almost ended early.
As one of the most successful coaches in the history of Chinese swimming, Zhu Zhigen’s greatest achievement so far in his coaching career is none other than Sun Yang. From 200 meters to 1500 meters, Sun Yang has almost won gold medals in all world competitions in men's middle and long distance freestyle swimming. He is the well-deserved "first person" in Chinese swimming history. However, just as remarkable as the achievements are the controversies caused by Sun Yang, from driving without a license to falling out with his teacher Zhu Zhigen, to being banned from racing, it is really embarrassing.
