In 2019, Sun Yang was burdened with a lot of unnecessary pressure due to the anti inspection incident. After the incident came to an end, Sun Yang set out again and began the new year's journey. The competition for the first competition day of the 2020 fina Swimming Championship Series in Shenzhen ended. Sun Yang's first show in 2020 lost 0.03 seconds to his old rival, Lithuanian famous general lapsis. Unfortunately, he missed the championship.
Sun Yang and lapsis have fought several times. In the men's 200m final of the World Swimming Championships held in Guangzhou, South Korea last July, lapsis took the lead in the fight with Sun Yang. However, due to the start and jump, his results were cancelled and Sun Yang won the championship. Although Sun Yang's reaction was a little slow, he swam in front with good efficiency after entering the water, but lapses followed closely and made a sprint after the last turn. In the end, they came to the side almost at the same time, but lapsis won the championship in 1:46.50, and Sun Yang's score was 1:46.53. Sun Yang said after the competition that because he was in winter training at present, he just regarded the competition as a training and did not surpass his best level. The real good condition will be shown in the March Qingdao National Swimming Championship.
In other individual events on the day, Chinese athletes also won 5 gold and 2 silver medals. Xu Jiayu took the lead in the men's 100 meter backstroke final and won the championship in 53.01 seconds. Wang Shun won the men's 200m individual medley with 1:57.76. In the women's 200m backstroke final, Chinese athlete Liu Yaxin won the championship with 2 minutes, 10 seconds and 34 seconds. Liu Xiang won the women's 50m backstroke final in 27.36 seconds. This is her first swimming champion series gold medal. Liu Xiang said after the competition that since this year is the Olympic year, she has been focusing on the 50m freestyle of the Olympic project, and has not practiced backstroke. However, there will be a world championship in 2021, and she will catch the 50m backstroke again. "This competition proved my winter training effect." She said, "by focusing on physical fitness and large amount of exercise, strength and ability are up, so the competition can play a good level."
