The gymnastic athlete last in group finished 5th overall because so many had failed that fitness test. Su Bingtian, who ran 9.92s to win gold in 100m final at the Asian Games 2018, failed to qualify for the national championships because he failed the 3000m test. There are many more examples...

Seems like table tennis has changed the rules?

List of Teams & Their Players are out – https://www.sohu.com/a/421971318_58...-pingpong-home.fd-news.1.16014763015666ts0g9h.

Men's Team

Beijing team (Ma Long, Wang Chuqin, Yan An) seems rather OP, with perhaps only Shandong (Yu Ziyang, Liu Dingshuo, Fang Bo, Quan Kaiyuan) and Guangdong (Lin Gaoyuan, Zhou Qihao, Zhang Chao) having some chance against the trio.

Women's Team

Notable teams are Hebei (Sun Yingsha, He Zhuojia), Liaoning (Chen Xingtong, Wang Yidi, Li Jiayi), Jiangsu (Qian Tianyi, Liu Fei, Zhang Qiang, Shi Xunyao, Kuai Man), Shandong (Chen Meng, Gu Yuting) and Sichuan (Zhu Yuling, Fan Siqi, Yang Huijing).

Bayi team did not sign up for the team events so Fan Zhendong, Zhou Yu, Liang Jingkun, Xu Chenhao, Zhou Kai, Sun Mingyang, Muzi etc. will not make an appearance until the Singles and Doubles matches.

It's reported table tennis and a few other disciplines have slightly different requirements. There are supposedly 3 parts to the test.

CM posted a clip of her doing the pull-up in early May and people were oblivious at that time. Then ML was featured on TV doing 18 pull-ups in one go late May and people realized there was the fitness test.

Some videos available on ITTF's youtube channel.

The level gap between the CNT players and some of the lesser known provincial players is really on display here. And those provincial players are no joke.

Looked like Feng Yalan had Chen Meng for a while... FYL has some crazy off the table creativity by women's play standards. And a terrifying look to her.
