Sun Yang sees Park Tae-hwan as toughest opponent


They will only meet in the 400 freestyle, with China’s Sun Yang racing the 400, 800 and 1500 at the upcoming Shanghai 2011 World Championships, and South Korea’s Park Tae-hwan the 100, 200 and 400. But ouch, Mellouli and the rest, Yang wants the 400 gold medal the most, because he feels that Park will be the toughest to beat. Read

“I desire the 400m freestyle more than the 800- and 1,500-meters because my toughest opponent, Park Tae-hwan, will be in that event,” the 19-year-old said in an interview with China Daily.
