Sun Yang seeks redemption


Read via ShanghaiDaily

Sun Yang received a gift for his 22nd birthday from Swimming World Magazine on December 1 – he was elected as the Male World Swimmer of Year 2013.

Instead of celebrating, he apologized – for an eventful year that saw him breaking up with his coach, missing training and caught driving without a license.

“I am deeply suffering from guilt, apology and regret towards my parents, coaches, supporters and friends,” said China’s first ever male Olympic champion swimmer on his Twitter-like Weibo account.

“I have grown up and matured. I will work harder, discipline myself and correct my mistakes.
