Chinese swimming star Sun Yang aims higherBeijing: China`s double Olympic gold medallist Sun Yang vowed Friday to work hard for greater success.

The 20-year-old swimmer made a big splash in the 2012 London Olympics when he claimed gold in both men`s 400m and 1,500m freestyle. He also broke his own world record in the latter discipline, reports Xinhua.

"As a Chinese saying puts it, `All starts from scratch when you step down from the podium,` What I`ve achieved in London will become a motivation for me," Sun said when addressing a meeting held at the Great Hall of the People to honour the Chinese mainland`s delegation to the London Olympics.

"I hope that I, along with my teammates, regard the London Games as a new starting point and continue to train hard in the future, setting a good example for Chinese youth and making contribution to the development of Chinese swimming."

China won 38 gold medals, 27 silver medals and 23 bronze medals at the July 27-Aug 12 London Games, finishing second to the United States in the medals table.
