We saw this story over the weekend and found it very interesting that this athlete felt it better for him to go train with another country’s trainers to better himself in his sport. Well that training paid off as you can see since Sun Yang took gold and set a record (by breaking his own) in the Olympics for the 1500m Freestyle event. It’s even more interesting to see this as many stories are emerging in regards to Australia’s dismal performance in the Olympics along with their view of themselves in the competition. With this story does it seem more countries that aren’t known for particular events more likely to train with other countries to improve their chances? Will countries like Australia crack down on foreigners training with them if it puts other countries ahead of them in the future?
