Chinese sailor Lijia: Olympic performance 'unsatisfactory'

Thursday, August 18 2016 by SNTV
  • London Games gold medalist Xu Lijia finished her Rio Olympics journey after finishing 18th in the Women's One Person Dinghy - Laser Radial sailing at Rio Olympics.

    "My preparation for this Olympics was just 70-80 percent, as I just decided to come back to prepare for the Rio Games one year ago. So in just one year, I can only resume 70-80 percent of my physical strength and my technical and tactical level. And before the competition, I was a little bit unfortunate because my shoulder injury relapsed, which has big impact on my system training ahead of the games and on competitions in the Games. I almost doubt if I can finish the whole rounds of the races. "

    "In the competition, there have been so many ups and downs for me. My result was not satisfactory but I have tried my best effort, so I don't have any regret in this games and I have learned many things in the race everyday. What I need to do now is to turn the experience and lessons I have learned in this Games into a stepping-stone which can help me to better deal with any big events."
