, April 17 (Xinhua) -- China's star swimmer Sun Yang has vowed to defend his titles at the swimming world championships in July in Kazan, Russia.
Sun, who swept the 400m, 800m and 1,500m freestyle titles at the 2013 Barcelona Worlds, has booked a quota for the 200m, 400m Uomo Nike Air Max 95 Jacquard Scarpe Nere Scontate
, 800m and 1,500m at the 2015 Kazan Worlds after winning all the events at the National Swimming Championships, which served as a qualifier for the Worlds and ended late Thursday.
"I hope I can defend my world titles in Kazan," said Sun, who served out a three-month doping ban last year. "The 400m free will be the first event I take part in at Kazan, and I hope it will be a good start."
The London Olympic 400m and 1,500m winner went through a difficult time after the news broke by the end of last year that he had served out a three-month ban in 2014 after testing positive for the banned stimulant trimetazidine on May 17.
Sun proved his innocence with sufficient evidence in July's hearing that he was not aware that the substance was prohibited and took the prescription drug Vasorel to treat a heart condition.
Australian Denis Cotterell was not allowed to coach Sun any longer as a result of the new policy implemented by Swimming Australia. Sun was thus forced to train at other clubs in Australia Uomo Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Scarpe Grigie Nere Scontate
, and according to Zhang Yadong, Sun's coach, the 23-year-old prodigy worked hard during the 13-week winter training and lost some weight.
Another Australian coach, Brain King, now works with Sun. King was Cotterell's assistant at the Miami Club where Sun used to train. And basketball star Stephon Marbury's physical trainer Chris Hoffman has also joined Sun's team.
"Sun had been in a poor mental state," said Zhang. "He didn't want to talk and go outside, and didn't want to meet anyone. It was not easy for him."
The Nationals was the first competition for Sun this year. Though he won four titles at the Nationals Donne Uomo NikeLab Air VaporMax Flyknit Betrue 2017 Scarpe Blu Scontate
, Sun didn't produce a world fastest time. He only ranked sixth in his signature 1,500m free, and was fourth in 400m, second in 200m and 800m.
"It's not reasonable to expect him to win all the events at the Worlds," said Zhang. "We have not decided to take part in which events yet. Our aim is the Rio Olympic Games, and the Kazan Worlds is only a warm-up."
Yet Sun seemed positive towards the worlds himself.
"I still have time," he said. "I think my results are OK this time."

, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- Cuba has decided not to participate in the women's Olympic qualifying water polo tournament, from March 21-28 in Gouda, the Netherlands, after five of its best athletes and a coach recently defected in Mexico, the national federation for the sport announced Thursday.
After six members of the Cuban team defected during a training session in Mexico, the decision was taken not to participate in the European competition, which will provide four tickets to the Olympic Games in Brazil in August Uomo Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Scarpe Nere Scontate
, according to the sport's National Commissioner, Eduardo Medina.
On the possibility of receiving a sanction from FINA, Medina said the sport's world ruling body understands Cuba's situation.
"It is a shame, because we had a good team, maybe we did not have the potential to get a ticket to Rio de Janeiro, but we were ready to give it our best shot against the rivals in Group B (France, Italy Donne Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Scarpe Viola Scontate
, New Zealand, Russia and the Netherlands)," Medina told the Cuban News Agency.
BEIJING, July 16 (Xinhua) -- Non-capital functions including manufacturing, logistics, wholesale markets and partial functions of public service will be gradually phased out to ease Beijing's "urban diseases", the municipal government said on Thursday.
According to the city's development and reform commission Uomo Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Scarpe Nere Scontate
, non-capital functions amass huge amounts of population inside the city of Beijing, which hampers the government's promise to limit its population to 23 million.
Data show the wholesale clothes market surrounding Beijing Zoo in the downtown supplied more than 30,000 jobs and attracted up to 60,000 to 70,000, sometimes 100,000 visitors every day.
According to the Beijing Statistics Bureau Uomo Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Scarpe Nere Colorful Scontate
, a total of 121 markets were closed in Beijing in 2014 and the first half of this year, which reduced the space covered by markets in the city by about 1.15 million square meters, or 8.2 percent of the total.
Eighty-eight top-level hospitals in the city receive over 200 million patients from across the country every year. Some hospitals have begun construction of branches in the suburbs. About 50 medical institutions based in Beijing have cooperation agreements with over 60 hospitals in neighboring Hebei Province.
The municipal government also decided to close 1,200 polluting factories by 2017. A total of 865 factories were shut down in the first half of this year.

In the final of the International Champions Cup friendly tournament, Louis van Gaal's men overturned an early Steven Gerrard penalty - the third spot kick United have conceded on tour - to claim victory through second-half goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard.
