Chinese swimmers are boycotted in Australia

Many famous Australian fishermen have simultaneously called for not to practice with Chinese ones, because of the ambiguity in doping testing and condescending behavior.

Many famous Australian fishermen have simultaneously called for not to practice with Chinese ones, because of the ambiguity in doping testing and condescending behavior. Reportedly, the Chinese swimming team is currently training in Australia for the 2016 Olympic Games, but was immediately boycotted.

The incident just happened over the weekend, when fisherman Thomas Fraser-Holmes – champion at the Commonwealth Games – was practicing when he got out of the pool angrily, because of a group of Chinese athletes requires sharing the pool to practice.

Fraser-Holmes told The Daily Telegraph (Australia): “I have no intention of opposing or attacking one of them (Chinese swimmers). But the demanding way as if the pool is their cause very uncomfortable. Moreover, Chinese athletes often learn to sneak or track our strengths and weaknesses. So it’s best to just train with my teammates instead of the curious athletes”.

Meanwhile, another well-known Australian fisherman, Grant Hackett, also interviewed The Daily Telegraph, expressing doubts about the transparency of Chinese swimmers. He said that many Australian swimmers were bored with the Chinese athletes.

Hackett also said that he has witnessed over the past 18 months that Chinese athletes only test doping once, while Australian or other Australian athletes check it regularly every 4 weeks.

Because of this, China’s most famous abalone is Sun Yang – who was fiercely criticized for his ugly behavior at last year’s world swimming championships (stumbling upon the female swimmer. Brazil, Larissa Oliveira falls when using a pool to boot), was recommended by the Australian Swimming Federation to stop training in Australia for fear of leaving a bad image. Sun Yang’s coach, Denis Cotterell, also cut off contact with the ugly athlete. However, Sun Yang still tried to stay in Australia to train with coach Brian King, who used to be Cotterell’s assistant at the Miami swimming club.

There are about 100 Chinese swimmers practicing in Australia, including some famous athletes such as the fishwoman Ye Shiwen or Ning Zetao. However, with the current opposition, Chinese athletes may have to find new training places.
