A falling-out between Sun and his coach over his love affair with a stewardess has rocked the Asian swimming power as it prepares for Barcelona.
Sun, the tall distance specialist from Zhejiang, rejected coach Zhu Zhigen’s demand that he stop seeing his new girlfriend and concentrate on his swimming instead.
Despite a public show of reconciliation with Zhu, Sun has been training in Hong Kong under former Chinese head coach Zhang Yadong, and it is unclear which events he will contest this month.
“Athletes want to get good results, and to do this you need systematic and scientific training without outside interference,” Sun complained on his official microblog.
