The competition group starts at 7:<> a.m., and the participants are all elite swimmers who want to strive for good results. The vast majority of the participants were included in the Youyou Group, which was divided into five batches, including Little Flying Fish, participants from the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and local participants.
