Chinese gold medalist, coach mend fences

China’s double Olympic gold medalist Sun Yang has mended fences with his coach and laid down a marker ahead of this year’s World Championships by winning the 400-meter freestyle at the National Swimming Championships, local media reported.

Sun’s relationship with coach Zhu Zhigen had reportedly soured amid concerns the 21-year-old swimmer’s private life was affecting his training.

He was also suspended from all commercial activities in February for breaching a “series of team rules” and had one month’s training allowance withheld.

Sun finished nearly four seconds ahead of his nearest rival at the meet on Monday.
