The potential for swimmers was generally quite high. It was a sport where the taller the athletes were, the more advantages they had. Tall people usually had excellent arms that they could use to speed up as they pushed through the water. And when they reached the finish line, the people with longer arms could touch the line quicker as well. However, it might be difficult for those people who were too tall to turn their bodies into streamlines. The resistance in the water might be greater for them. This meant that the people who were too tall were not born to be swimmers.
On the national swimming team, all the male athletes were around 1.85 meters to 2 meters. And the female athletes were more than 1.70 meters. Some of them even reached 1.80 meters. Feifei Yu, for example, was 1.70 meters. She could only be considered a short girl on the national swimming team.
As for weight, most of the female athletes weighed between 60kg to 65kg. Those who were very tall might be over 65kg. As for normal females, people who were around 1.70 meters might think they were fat if they were 60kg. However, because the athletes had lower body fat percentages, they actually looked slimmer than normal people of the same weight and height as them.
A few years ago, when Feifei Yu broke the world record, she was only 55kg. But considering the fact that her body was not fully developed at the time, the weight was appropriate. But as she aged, she grew, and her body was in a period of development. Because of this, her weight soared to 70kg immediately.
According to the evaluation from the coach on the national team, she needed to be under 62kg to return to the standard she was at when she became the world champion. Most athletes who were the height as her weighed around 60kg to 63kg, which meant she had to lose at least 8kg.
In the training room, Dai Li and Zhongyi Xu argued intensely. Feifei Yu, who was next to them, tried to stop them, but couldn't even find an opportunity to speak. Finally, she heard Li ask her to stand on the scale. She felt very happy, but she still looked at Zhongyi Xu first, as if she was seeking permission.
"Go ahead!" Xu looked at Li carelessly and said, "I'll see what tricks have you left."
Li made a gesture and continued, "Coach Xu, this way please. Let's see it together. Let's see how much weight she lost in these last few days."
Xu snickered and walked towards the scale. Li followed him. Yu stepped on the electronic scale and held her body steady. The number on the scale eventually stopped fluctuating.
"Please have a look, Coach Xu!" Li said, pointing at the number.
"63.11kg?" He was so surprised that he couldn't control his facial expression. He raised his head up and looked at Yu, and then he looked at the number again with a face of disbelief.
"How's that possible? She lost 7kg? Yu, it hasn't been 20 days since you have been back in Qing City! How could you lose so much weight in such a short period of time?" Xu asked first.
Without waiting for Yu's answer, Li said immediately, "The reason she lost so much weight is because of my weight loss exercise!"
"Nonsense! Your broadcast exercises could make her lose 7kg?" Xu still didn't believe that the exercise was effective. He turned around and looked at Yu seriously. "Feifei, tell me the truth. Have you taken any medicine to lose weight?"
"No, coach, I haven't! It's all because of Coach Li's exercise," Yu said.
Xu knew that Yu would never lie to him, but he still couldn't believe that something like a broadcast exercise could help her lose weight in such a short time. Even the coaches from the national team and the nutritionists from the universities couldn't solve the problem. It went completely against Xu's knowledge.
According to the number on the scale, Yu was currently 63kg, which was very close to her goal of 62kg. If she could keep going and get back to her condition from before, she could her world champion ability again.
Everything came very suddenly for Xu. It was said that you should only believe what you saw and never believe what you heard; however, he still couldn't believe it, even though he saw the number of 63kg with his own eyes.
No way. It's very difficult for athletes to lose weight. If she lost 1kg or 1.5kg in 20 days, I might believe it. But 7kg? That's crazy. There must be something wrong with it! Let me think about it again. Xu suddenly became quiet and started to go over what had just happened.
He turned around suddenly and pointed at the scale. "I got it. There is something wrong with this scale. You've done something with it, haven't you?" he said to Li harshly.
Li laughed carelessly and pointed at it. "If you think there is something with that one, you can try the one over here."
"God knows if you did something to that one too or not! If you could change one scale, then you could change two. Maybe you changed all of them." Xu snickered, clearly not trusting him.
"Alright, you go on that scale and check your weight then. You should know how much you weigh, right? Then you will know if I've done something to this scale or not," Li said.
Yu got off the scale right away and let Xu step on the scale.
"85.53kg. I didn't expect you to be this heavy!" Li joked around.
Xu didn't say a word. Of course, he knew how much he weighed.
I weighed myself the day before yesterday and I was over 86kg, but less than 86.5kg. Although the number is different, there is only a 0.5kg difference. It's understandable. So does that mean this scale is accurate? Xu couldn't help but look at Yu. She had lost 7kg. The inaccuracy couldn't be that great.
"No!" Xu shouted suddenly. "I got it. Feifei, you must be sick for you to have lost so much weight! Go home now and get a good rest. I'll take you to the hospital tomorrow for an physical examination!"
Li didn't know if he should laugh or cry.
Why can't he just believe that my weight loss exercise really works?
