Gold Medal in the Individual Event Won by My Younger Brother Jisoo [sport]

[Asian Games] “The Gold Medal in the Individual Event Won by My Younger Brother Jisoo, Who is Like Family, Is Even More Touching”

Fencing saber Kim Ji-yeon, who welcomed AG as a commentary after retiring as representative... “I hope the juniors do well in the team competition as well.”

“Jiyeon, are you watching? Thank you so much!”

This is what Yoon Ji-su (30), who won the gold medal in the women's saber fencing individual event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held on the 26th, said to her 'best friend' senior Kim Ji-yeon (35, Seoul Metropolitan Government).

Kim Ji-yeon and Yoon Ji-soo have spent a long time crying and laughing together on the national team and their respective teams. 바카라사이트

They also achieved brilliant achievements on the international stage, such as winning the team event at the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games and the first-ever Olympic bronze medal in the women's saber team event (Tokyo 2020).

She found herself in a position to lead the women's saber team with Ji-yeon Kim laying down her Taegeuk mark in April of this year, with Ji-soo Yoon losing her big supporter.

At the Asian Games prepared while her sense of responsibility and burden increased to the point where she expressed, "I thought I was suffering from depression," Jisoo Yoon decorated her first individual exhibition with a gold medal.

It is a gold medal that has a special meaning for Kim Ji-yeon, who serves as a commentator for SBS and is spending the Asian Games in front of a microphone rather than on the piste, a little different from previous years.

She won the first Korean women's fencing Olympic individual gold medal in London in 2012, and even Kim Ji-yeon, who played as an 'ace', had a silver medal (2014 Incheon) in the individual event at the Asian Games.

Her last Asian Games were five years ago in Jakarta, where she won a bronze medal in the individual event.

Kim Ji-yeon, who met Ji-soo Yoon over the phone after she won the individual competition, said, "I was even more moved because I really wanted Ji-soo to do it," and added, "I am proud and proud to see that Ji-soo, who always told me that it was difficult and seemed young, has grown a lot."

In particular, in the semifinals against Zainab Daibekova (Uzbekistan), Ji-Soo Yoon won 15-14 after a struggle and advanced to the finals, and Ji-Yeon Kim shed tears during her commentary.

Jiyeon Kim said, "I didn't know I would cry like that.

“When I looked at the screen again later, I saw that he was speaking quietly and well, but then suddenly he cried,” he said. “In the finals, I was like, ‘I broke down in tears.’

I wanted to cry, but I held back.

Jisoo was rather calm," he said with a laugh.

An anecdote was also made known about Jisoo Yoon contacting Jiyeon Kim on the day of the game and talking to her. Jiyeon Kim said, "Jisoo was very worried, so she just said, 'You're the best, you're doing really well.'

He said, “I had a ‘mental education.’”

He continued, “Jisoo lost to Dybekova in both the individual competition at the Olympics and the World Championships.

“I used to have difficult matches against players who used such ‘small steps,’ and when I had the opportunity to train with Jisoo, he talked a lot about dealing with such players,” he said, adding, “I did a good job at that in this individual match.”

The relationship between the two is so special that Ji-yeon Kim says, “Even my dog ​​likes Ji-soo.”

Ji-yeon Kim said, "My husband (broadcaster Dong-jin Lee) also thinks of Ji-soo like his sister-in-law.

The three of us get along well, even going camping together."

Ji-yeon Kim said, "Ji-soo accommodates me well, and although she is my younger brother, she is also like an older sister.

When I am having a hard time, Ji-soo gives me strength.

“I even gave it to you,” he said.

She went on to explain, "Jisoo had a really hard time when her older sisters who were on the national team left.

I watched that process, so I had mixed feelings when I watched Jisoo play this time."

Ji-su Yoon's gold medal served as an opportunity to announce the opening of a new chapter for the Korean women's saber team, led by Ji-yeon Kim and others.

If the momentum continues until the group exhibition on the 29th, this atmosphere will become even stronger.

Kim Ji-yeon said, "Our country's women's saber team has improved a lot.

Our juniors are also doing well in international competitions recently."

She added, "There are players competing in the Asian Games for the first time, so they may be nervous, but since they are doing well, I hope they can show off their skills as usual without feeling pressure." He requested.

Kim Sun-woo, Who Shed Tears Despite Winning Korea's First Medal [sport]

[Asian Games] Kim Sun-woo, Who Shed Tears Despite Winning Korea's First Medal, Says, "I'm so Disappointed."

Silver medal in modern pentathlon women’s individual event… “I had a good start in fencing, but I kept making mistakes in shooting”

“Still, I am honored to win Korea’s first medal… I will prepare perfectly next year when the Paris Olympics are held.” 카지노

Kim Seon-woo (26, Gyeonggi Provincial Office), a modern pentathlon athlete who won the first silver medal for the Korean team at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, expressed his disappointment at not being able to overcome the last hurdle.

After winning the silver medal in the women's individual modern pentathlon event at the Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Fuyang Inhu Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 24th, Kim Seon-woo was in tears, saying, "I am so, so sorry."

Kim Sun-woo, who was a member of Korea's team gold medal at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and won a bronze medal in the individual event at the Jakarta-Palembang Games five years ago, has won medals in all three Asian Games he has participated in up to this tournament.

In particular, this silver medal was meaningful because it was the first medal for the Korean team at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

However, when the opportunity to stand at the top of the podium came, Kim Seon-woo felt more upset about not being able to take it.

After crossing the finish line for the second time, his expression was always dark, and his eyes were red while talking to reporters in the mixed zone (joint reporting area).

On this day, Kim Seon-woo, who maintained leading scores in fencing, horseback riding, and swimming, performed especially well in the laser run (track and field + shooting) and took the lead, but he faltered several times in shooting, which held him back.

Kim Seon-woo said, “I felt a little more sensitive, such as when the gun fired while reloading.

Was it because I used too much strength, or was there a problem with the gun because it was wet?

"He said, "I was shooting comfortably at first, but as I kept making mistakes in my shooting, it became more and more difficult for me in track and field."

In the team event, where I expected a gold medal more than the individual event, none of my colleagues could score in horseback riding, so I had to be satisfied with a bronze medal.

This was also the reason why Kim Sun-woo could not smile.

Kim Seon-woo burst into tears once again as he hugged his one-year older sister, Kim Se-hee (BNK Savings Bank), who came into the mixed zone.

Kim Seon-woo said, "I wanted to go home smiling because the three of us could win medals together in the team event, but I was upset because the results were not good because the other players were very nervous."

He added, "I didn't think any words could comfort me, so I consoled myself and prepared for the rest of the match." He said.

He continued, "I was so sad and upset that I couldn't talk much with the manager or coach.

I was even more heartbroken when they told me, 'It's okay, you did well.'"

He couldn't continue speaking again.

Still, opening the door to medals for the Korean team is something to be proud of.

Kim Seon-woo said, "Modern pentathlon is usually held at the end of the general competition, but this time it was held at the beginning and I was able to win my first medal.

I consider it an honor.

Although it is disappointing, it is a valuable medal, so I want to go up to the podium with a smile."

Kim Seon-woo, who was wiping away tears at the podium, smiled at the end.

He said, "When I first competed in the Asian Games, I was too young and didn't know what to do, so I followed my older sisters.

At the Jakarta Games, it was time to show results in international competitions, so I was greedy and performed poorly in fencing.

This time, I thought I would take it easy and get points in fencing.

“I started off with good results, and I think that led to the silver medal,” he said.

By winning the individual competition at this competition, he also won the right to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics, which is given to the top five players.

The Paris Olympics are now less than a year away.

Kim Seon-woo said, “I felt like I had a lot of shortcomings during this competition, so I thought I had to work harder,” and pledged, “I want to prepare perfectly for next season by starting with winter training.”
