[Asian Games] Hwang Sun-woo, Who has No Rest... Sports Festival in October, Selection Tournament in November, World Championships in February

The most important goal in 2024 is to win a medal at the Paris Olympics.

Hwang Sun-woo (20, Gangwon Provincial Office) said, “I can’t rest” even after completing the Hangzhou Asian Games schedule.

As he thought about the remaining competition schedule, he confessed, "I felt out of breath."

Sunwoo Hwang, who won 6 medals (2 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze) in a total of 8 races (6 finals, 2 preliminary rounds) at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, returned to Korea, took a short rest, and resumed training. did.

After competing in the National Sports Festival in October and the National Team Selection Tournament in November, he must prepare for the World Championships in Doha in February next year.

In the summer of 2024, Hwang Sun-woo will challenge to win a medal at the Paris Olympics, which is one of his life goals.

The men's 100m freestyle A record at the Doha World Championships is 48.51 seconds, and the 200m record is 1 minute 47.06 seconds.

Players who pass this record from October 1st of last year to December 19th of this year will be eligible to compete.

The A records at the 2024 Paris Olympics are higher than those at the Doha World Championships, at 48.34 seconds for the men's 100m freestyle and 1 minute 46.26 seconds for the 200m.

The record recognition period is from March 1 of this year to June 23, 2024.

The standard for an A record is quite high, but Hwang Sun-woo has already passed the A record at the Paris Olympics as well as the Doha World Championships.

Sunwoo Hwang recorded 47.79 seconds in the 100m freestyle at the Gwangju National Championships in June this year, and recorded 48.08 seconds in the semifinals of the Fukuoka World Championships in July.

In his 200m freestyle, he finished third with a time of 1 minute 44.42 seconds at the Fukuoka World Championships, and then further shortened his Korean record with a time of 1 minute 44.40 seconds at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Sunwoo Hwang is ranked 3rd in the world rankings for the men's 200m freestyle this year.

The gap between him and 1st place Matthew Richards (1 minute 44.30 seconds) and 2nd place Tom Dean (1 minute 44.32 seconds, UK) is not large.

In the past, Korean swimming was virtually guaranteed to participate in the World Championships or Olympics as long as it passed the A record.

However, now in the men's 200m freestyle, we must look at the standard of 'maximum 2 participants per country per event'.

In the men's 200m freestyle at the 2023 Korea Management National Team Selection Competition held in March this year, Hwang Sun-woo (1:45.36), Lee Ho-jun (1:45.70), and Kim Woo-min (1:46.10) all set the International Aquatics Federation A record (1) By passing the time (minutes 47.06 seconds)

Hwang Sun-woo and Lee Ho-jun won the right to participate in the Fukuoka World Championships and the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Hojun Lee ranked 6th in the men's 200m freestyle at the World Championships and 3rd at the Asian Games.

Competition is expected to take place at the Doha World Championship representative selection event in November.

Of course, there is a high possibility that Hwang Sun-woo will pass the national team selection competition in first place.

Still, Hwang Sun-woo said, “Now I can’t guarantee victory even in domestic competitions.

I will prepare well for the national team selection competition.”

The fight against records is '24/7'.

Sunwoo Hwang is consistently challenging his main event, the 200m freestyle, to break the 1:43 second mark and his personal best record for the 100m freestyle (47.56 seconds).

Reached the Semifinals for the First Time in History [sports]

[Asian Games] Reached the Semifinals for the First Time in History Despite Losing All 2 Group Matches... Hong Kong Football Sensation

Coach Andersen, who took the helm of K-League Incheon in 2018, becomes the head coach.

The 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men's soccer semifinal match will be held between Korea-Uzbekistan and Japan-Hong Kong.

The average soccer fan might wonder, ‘Hong Kong in the semifinals?’

Hong Kong is ranked 148th in the FIFA world rankings, and this is because the team has not achieved remarkable results in Asian competitions. 먹튀검증가이드

What's even more surprising is that Hong Kong defeated Asian powerhouse Iran 1-0 in the quarterfinals.

Iran is ranked 21st in the FIFA rankings, the second highest ranking country in Asia after Japan (19th).

Of course, because there is an age limit for men's soccer in the Asian Games (under 24 for this tournament), it is difficult to say that the world ranking and power of the adult national team are strictly proportional, but in any case, Hong Kong's defeat of Iran and advancement to the semifinals was an unexpected result.

But this is not all that is surprising.

The ‘mystery’ is that Hong Kong advanced to the semifinals despite losing all two games in the group stage of this tournament.

The story is like this.

Hong Kong was placed in Group C of the tournament's group stage and was scheduled to compete with Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and Syria.

However, with Afghanistan and Syria suddenly not participating, only Uzbekistan and Hong Kong remained in Group C.

The tournament organizing committee decided not to reorganize the groups and decided that Group C would be played with Uzbekistan and Hong Kong facing each other twice.

In addition, Group C was given the de facto 'preference' of allowing both Uzbekistan and Hong Kong to advance to the round of 16 regardless of the result of the game.

In the other group, the four teams fought fiercely from the group stage to be in the top two, but Uzbekistan and Hong Kong had already confirmed their advancement to the round of 16 and played two games comfortably as practice.

Hong Kong lost 0-1 and 1-2 in both matches against Uzbekistan, but reached the round of 16.

Then, among the countries that advanced to the round of 16, they faced Palestine, ranked 2nd in Group D, who were relatively weak, and won 1-0 to join the quarterfinals.

Hong Kong, who literally 'luckily' advanced to the quarterfinals, was expected to have difficulty overcoming Iran's wall, but they even surpassed Iran and advanced to the semifinals.

This is the first time that Hong Kong has advanced to the semifinals in men's soccer since the first Asian Games in 1951, and it has been 65 years since the quarterfinals in 1958.

The Hong Kong coach is Jern Andersen (Norway), who served as North Korea's head coach from 2016 to 2018 and took command of K-League's Incheon in 2018.
Coach Jern Andersen said ahead of the semifinal against Japan on the 4th, "Japan has a lot of talented players," and added, "But if we compete a little stronger, we will be able to get a chance against Japan, which has many relatively young players." .

While Hong Kong used all three wild cards, Japan selected the national team from those born in 2001 without anyone born in 2000 for this tournament.

Those born in 1999 can participate in men's soccer at the Asian Games.

The winner of the Hong Kong-Japan match will meet the winner of the Korea-Uzbekistan match in the final.

Jeong Byeong-hee, ‘Son Geun-seong and Woo Hyo-sook Kids’ [sports]

[Asian Games] ‘Son Geun-seong and Woo Hyo-sook Kids’ Jeong Byeong-hee “I Ran Only for the Gold Medal for 13 Years”

A 5th grade boy who was moved by the gold medal in Guangzhou in 2010 also felt the pain of being excluded from the gold medal event in Hangzhou in 2014 and 2018... “Thank you Choi In-ho for helping me score.”

Korean roller skater Jeong Byeong-hee (24, Chungbuk Sports Council) has dreamed of winning a gold medal in the Asian Games since she was in the fifth grade of elementary school, 13 years ago. 안전놀이터

At the 2010 Guangzhou Games, he watched on TV as Geun-seong Son and Hyo-suk Woo, the leading men and women of rollers, swept the gold medals in the 10,000m (Exclusion + Points) 10,000m.

While he was naturally roller skating following his older brother Jeong Byeong-gwan (Chungbuk Sports Council), who was three years older than him, it was a moment when a goal that would carry over into his career as an athlete was planted in him.

But the situation was not easy.

No matter how hard he worked, it was unclear whether he would be able to participate in the Asian Games.

Roller skating was not adopted as an official event at the 2014 Incheon Games, and at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, it was drastically reduced to two 20,000m road events for men and women.

Byung-hee Jeong did not give up hope and continued training quietly.

And after 13 years, an opportunity came.

The EP 10,000m event has returned as an official event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.

Jeong Byeong-hee, wearing the Taegeuk symbol, recorded the highest score of 19 points and won the gold medal at the competition held at the Qiantang Roller Sports Center in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 30th.

His strategy of conserving his stamina early in the game and then shifting into high gear in the middle to sweep the points was successful.

In a phone call after the awards ceremony, Byeong-hee Jeong said, "I dreamed of seeing seniors Geun-seong Son and Hyo-suk Woo win gold medals in 2010," and reflected, "I kept running for year after year even though it was difficult after seeing just one gold medal at the Asian Games."

She was thrilled and said, "I wanted to have the same title as my idols and dreams, Son Geun-seong and Woo Hyo-sook."

Geun-seong Son, who is a playing coach at the Jeonbuk Sports Council, and Hyo-suk Woo, a retired player, are said to have supported their juniors, including Byeong-hee Jeong, in both material and spiritual ways ahead of this tournament.

Jung Byeong-hee also called them his brothers and sisters and recalled, "I was in a slump in July and August of this year, but my brother and sister said, 'If you believe in yourself and show what you have prepared, you will get good results,' so I got my mentality together."

He also expressed his gratitude to bronze medalist Choi In-ho, who helped him win the gold medal that day.

Choi In-ho competed for the lead until the middle of the game, preventing Chinese and Taiwanese players from scoring, and in the second half, he actively supported Jeong Byeong-hee's scoring by marking other players' runs.

Jeong Byeong-hee said, “During the game, he told me, ‘Take it easy (and score),’ so I rode with peace of mind.

I ’m grateful.”

Jung Byeong-hee, who achieved her childhood dream, expressed her ambition, saying, "We will win a gold medal together in the remaining 3,000m relay race," and added, "We will become athletes who develop further as we prepare for the next Asian Games."

EP 10,000m is a race format in which athletes who are ranked at a certain number of laps receive points while completing 50 laps around a 200m track, and those who are at the very end are eliminated.

In the lap after the bell rings, the players in 1st and 2nd place receive 2 and 1 point, respectively, and in the last lap, the players in 1st to 3rd place receive 3 to 1 points each.

The scores are added up to determine the ranking.
