PSSSST, all the diving events China does poorly in or lacks a cxompetitor are going to replace the events China does well in.
this is not true ..

in fact China become ''Aquatics'' powerhouse in recent years..

You gotta love how Westerners puff themselves up over the smallest achievements LOL. I just got recommended a YouTube video titled, "Italy's Legend and Big Hope: Antonino Pizzolato's on His Way to Triumph in Paris." I'm thinking, there is no medal threat from Italy I know of, so I looked up his medals record: 1 bronze World's + 1 bronze Olympic. Only golds are from European comps. They call this dude a legend LOLOL. They say he can win in Paris, yeah, if the top 6 other people including both Chinese lifters get injured and pull out LOL. On top of that, this dude himself is currently injured!

Always overhyping themselves and downplaying achievements of others like China.

Its a common thing you start noticing.

Okay so I'm pretty sure Chinese people are gonna monopolize every physical feat soon.

Su Bingtian - Fastest human who ever ran (in 60 meters or under)

Pan Zhanle - Fastest human who ever swam (the most important event anyway)

Various Chinese people - Strongest humans who ever lifted a barbell up over their heads while being under MOST bodyweights

China's men 4x100m Freestyle team just won gold! It's lead off (1st leg swimmer) Pan Zhanle also set a new 100m freestyle world record during his 1st leg swim.

This is big. Not sure if people realize the significance of this WR. 100m free is THE blue ribbon event in competitive swimming. The world record holders basically been dominated forever by Europeans and Americans. I like Sun Yang but he dominated mainly in mid distance and long distance 400-1500m events with some good results in 200m towards the latter end of his career when he focused more on the shorter distance. its awesome to have the 100m free record taken by chinese. Let's hope he hasn't peaked too early with the Paris Olympics later in the year.

Chinese swimmers should all be disbarred for using performance enhancing wind tunnels. It presents an insurmountable unfair advantage against technologically backward countries.

There are even more good freestyle swimmers coming.
