Clarification here:
It’s Zhou Ming not Zhao Ming.
I guess you may be right with the Chinese world champions you mentioned. Le wanted to make a comeback in 2000 Olympics but failed to qualify. Every now and then, there is news of Le but there is not much about her golden years. The news in 1995 reported that Dai had a long bout of thyroid fever after 1994 and chose to retire prematurely. In recent report, she said she was rebellious at the time and wanted to change coach. Provided with the sports environment in china, it is almost impossible to change coach at her own will. Her life after retirement is a tough one too because all she knows is swimming. Yuan is really the one who is completely out of the scene after the 1998 Perth incident.

Will, thanks for the info on Dai and Yuan (if you ever read or find out what happen to Yuan, where she is, how she’s faring – please let us know). Zhao now Zhou 🙂
