Recently, the judges, in Yunnan Diving Championships, all give 0 score to the provisional action competition. After the game, many referees who don’t familiar with diving business caused more focus and questioned from athletes, parents and experts, including one referee said he just is a driver.
Chen Min, the head judge and an aerobics teacher of Yunnan Normal University, explained that the small players were sentenced to 0 points because they aren’t in accordance with the provisions of the technical difficulty.
