Kim Woo-min, 400m freestyle 3rd place Advanced to Finals [sport]

Kim Woo-min, World Swimming Medal Visible... 400m freestyle, 3rd place, Advanced to Finals





Medal challenge in the early morning of the 12th... “I will show you that I will not give up in the finals.”

Kim Woo-min (22, Gangwon Provincial Office), a Korean mid- and long-distance swimmer, succeeded in advancing to the finals of the men's 400m freestyle at the World Championships for the third time in a row.

Kim Woo-min recorded a time of 3 minutes 45.14 seconds in the men's 400m freestyle preliminaries at the 2024 Qatar Doha International Aquatics Federation World Championships held at the Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar on the 11th.

Ranked 3rd among 56 participants in the preliminary round. 카지노사이트

Kim Woo-min, who competed in Group 6, the last group of the preliminaries, showed a world record pace of 1 minute 50.44 seconds until the 200m section.

However, he fell behind little by little starting from the 250m section, eventually losing first place to Elijah Winnington (Australia) and finishing in second place.

Winnington arrived in 3 minutes 44.37 seconds and took first place overall in the preliminaries, and Lucas Martens (Germany), the bronze medalist at last year's Fukuoka Games, took second place in 3 minutes 44.77 seconds.

Kim Woo-min advanced to the finals for the first time in this event at the 2022 Budapest Games and placed 6th, and rose one place to 5th at last year's Fukuoka Games.

Kim Woo-min will attempt to win his medal in the finals, which will be held at 1 a.m. on the 12th, Korean time.

Since he advanced to the finals with the highest personal ranking in the World Championship preliminaries, his chances are greater than ever.

Last year's Fukuoka Games runner-up and Tokyo Olympic gold medalist Ahmed Hafnauwi (Tunisia) was eliminated from this competition in 17th place in the preliminary round, beating out one competitor.

Kim Woo-min is an athlete who has now reached world-class level in the 400m freestyle, which was Park Tae-hwan's main event.

At last year's Fukuoka competition, he succeeded in advancing to the finals with a time of 3 minutes 44.52 seconds in the preliminaries and 6th place overall, and took 5th place in the finals with a time of 3 minutes 43.92 seconds.

At the Hangzhou Asian Games, he won three gold medals by winning the 400m and 800m freestyle and the 800m relay.

Many of the world's top athletes have announced that they will not participate in the Doha Games due to the Paris Olympics to be held in five months, but the situation is somewhat different in the 400m freestyle.

Among the first to fourth place finishers at last year's Fukuoka Games, gold medalist Samuel Short (Australia) is the only one who did not participate in this competition.

Swimming media outlet 'Swimswam' predicted that Kim Woo-min would take 5th place in the 400m freestyle at this competition.

Kim Woo-min, whose ultimate goal is the Olympic podium, is to break his record of 3 minutes 43.92 seconds in Doha.

If you can stand on the podium, a Paris Olympic medal will be within sight.

The last World Championships medal in this event by a Korean athlete was won by Park Tae-hwan in 2011.

At the time, Park Tae-hwan stood at the top of the podium, beating Sun Yang (China) with a record of 3 minutes and 42.04 seconds.

After the game, Kim Woo-min gave a short comment through his agency, All That Sports.

Kim Woo-min said, "I came to the local area and played the game, and the environment was good.

I became the first Korean (management team) finalist, and I am fortunate to have had a positive influence.

I will not give up and show a fighting spirit in the finals, so please support me." said.

Sabalenka Wins Second Consecutive Australian Open Tennis [sport]





Arina Sabalenka (2nd place, Belarus) won her second consecutive women's singles title at the Australian Open tennis tournament (total prize money of 86.5 million Australian dollars, approximately 76.1 billion won).

Sabalenka defeated Zheng Qinwen (15th, China) 2-0 (6-3 6-2) in 1 hour and 16 minutes in the women's singles final on the 14th day of her competition held in Melbourne, Australia on the 27th.

Sabalenka, who won her first major singles title in this tournament last year, successfully defended her title.

The prize money for winning the competition is 3.15 million Australian dollars, or 2.77 billion won in Korean currency. 카지노사이트원

It has been 11 years since Sabalenka won the Australian Open women's singles for two consecutive years since Viktoria Azaranka (22nd, Belarus) in 2012 and 2013.

Sabalenka has reached the semifinals or higher in six consecutive major tournaments from the 2022 US Open to this tournament, establishing a 'two-strong system' in women's tennis with Iga Sibiontech (1st place, Poland).

In particular, Sabalenka won the tournament without losing a single set while playing 7 games.

Sabalenka has won the Australian Open women's singles without loss in two years since Ashley Barty (Australia) in 2022.

When Arina Sabalenka won the Australian Open last year, she only lost one set to her opponent in the final.

Sabalenka won the event, but her world ranking will remain at No. 2 next week, while Chung Chin-won moves up to No. 7.

As soon as the game started, in just 11 minutes, Arina Sabalenka took the lead by leading the game 3-0.

Sabalenka, who reached the singles finals of a major tournament for the third time, dominated the atmosphere from the beginning by dominating Chung Chin-won, who reached the finals of her first Grand Slam tournament.

In addition, Chin-won Jeong had a triple break point at 0-40 during the opponent's serve game with the game score of 0-2, but missed the opportunity to turn the game around by failing to take the game.

Jeong Chin-won, who lost the first set 3-6, committed three double faults in the first serve game of the second set and allowed a break, bringing on a struggle.

The lead was 30-0, but two double faults came out in a row to make it 30-30. Sabalenka's serve return score and Chung Chin-won's double fault again allowed Sabalenka to break.

Sabalenka, who widened the gap with the game score to 2-0 from the beginning of the second set, solidified the victory by once again serving the opponent at 3-1.

Jeong Qin-won, who reached the singles finals of a major tournament as a Chinese player 10 years after the 2014 champion Lina (China), received support from many Chinese fans, but was unable to withstand the heavy attacks of Sabalenka, whose strength is strength.

As Jeong Chin-won, who ranked first in the number of serve aces in the tournament, he had to strictly protect his serve game and plan a counterattack in the opponent's serve game, but the game did not go as planned, with 6 double faults at every critical point and a first serve success rate of only 53%.

However, Chung Qin-Won, born in 2002, became the second Chinese player to enter the top 10 in the singles world rankings after Li Na, who rose to second place in the world, and this was a tournament that confirmed her potential for future development.

Jeju Beat Suwon 2-0 and Escaped their 4th Straight Loss [sport]

Jeju beat Suwon 2-0 and escaped their 4th straight loss... ‘Green light’ to remain in K League 1




Seoul lost 2-1 to Gangwon

Professional soccer K-League 1 Jeju United beat 'bottom place' Suwon Samsung, escaping from a slump of 4 consecutive losses, and gave the green light to 'remain in the 1st division'.

Jeju won 2-0 in the home game between Suwon and Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Final B Round 34 held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 22nd, led by back-to-back goals from Kim Geon-woong and Yuri Jonatan.

9th place Jeju (38 points), who recently lost 4 games in a row and had no wins in 7 consecutive games (1 draw, 6 losses), widened the gap to 7 points with 10th place Suwon FC (31 points), which had played one less game.

As the Maginot Line of K League 1, which can avoid the promotion playoffs (PO) with K League 2 teams, is 9th, Jeju increased its chances of remaining in the first division with today's victory. 온라인카지노

On the other hand, 'last place' Suwon (25 points) failed to accumulate points, and the shadow of 'relegation to the second division' became even darker.

Jeju scored first with a promised set play in the 3rd minute of the first half.

When Haines sent a right corner kick low toward the goal, Choi Young-jun slightly changed direction from the right side of the goal area and sent the ball toward the penalty arc, and Kim Geon-woong shook the goal net with a left-footed shot without delay.

Jeju replaced Kwak Seung-min with Yuri Jonatan in the 23rd minute of the first half, and this substitution led to an additional goal.

In the 26th minute of the first half, Yuri Jonatan jumped up from the left side of the goal area and scored with a header when Lee Ki-hyuk crossed from the right side of the penalty area.

Yuri Jonatan held a goal celebration 3 minutes after entering the field.

Suwon tried to open Jeju's goal in the second half, but suffered a permanent defeat due to their chronic lack of finishing.

At Seoul World Cup Stadium, 7th place FC Seoul (50 points) won 2-1 over 11th place Gangwon FC (26 points).

Gangwon, who failed to win for the fourth time in four games (2 draws, 2 losses) due to the loss on this day, remained in an uneasy 11th place, one point behind Suwon, the lowest ranked team.

The initial attack was led by Seoul.

In the 6th minute of the first half, Ki Sung-yueng's powerful mid-distance gun headed straight for the goalkeeper, and Na Sang-ho and Willian targeted Gangwon's back space several times, but the finish was disappointing.

In the 31st minute of the first half, Lee Si-young's right-footed shot from the left side of the penalty area slightly missed the right side of Gangwon's goal.

Gangwon-do, who were on the defensive, attempted a counterattack with Gabriel and Gallego at the end of the first half, but to no avail.

Seoul, which finished the first half scoreless, finally scored in the 7th minute of the second half.

In the 6th minute of the second half, Ki Sung-yong won a free kick in front of the penalty arc, and Na Sang-ho's right-footed shot as a kicker hit the defensive wall, deflected slightly, and went into the right side of Gangwon's goal.

Seoul gave up an equalizer to Gabriel in the 31st minute of the second half during a counterattack by Gangwon, but in the 34th minute of the second half, 'veteran striker' Ji Dong-won scored a header and won the game.

British Power Analysis Agency Helps African Teams [sport]

British power analysis agency helps African teams with soccer game ‘Football Manager’




There has actually been a case where the popular soccer simulation game ‘Football Manager’ was used to help strengthen the African national team.

On the 16th (local time), the British daily Guardian introduced the case of Jack Coles, a power analyst in the English Professional Football Championship (second division), who voluntarily cooperated with the Guinea-Bissau national football team in West Africa.

Coles said that while playing Football Manager, he learned that there were many players from all over the world who had dual citizenship due to reasons such as their parents' immigration.

Coles told the Guardian, "At first, I was looking into the relationship between Curaçao and the Netherlands, and then I realized that there are a lot of people with multiple nationalities."

He said that he discovered Guinea-Bissau while looking for the country that would benefit most from gathering players from all over the world. 바카라사이트

In fact, the Dutch territory of Curaçao has recently significantly strengthened its national team by taking advantage of the dual nationality system of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA).

According to FIFA regulations, if a player has no history of playing for the adult national team, he or she may, subject to conditions, play for a national team formed by a soccer association of another nationality.

Coles is said to have contacted the Guinea-Bissau Football Association through the recruitment and employment platform LinkedIn and offered to hand over the data he had obtained through Football Manager and the list of players he had contacted.

The Guinea-Bissau Football Association expressed doubts as to why a British man with no connections would provide help for free, but soon accepted Coles' offer, the Guardian reported.

Football Manager is a game where gamers become managers and manage a team.

Gamers select players, organize and train coaching staff, and create tactics down to the smallest detail before playing the game.

Almost all aspects of running a soccer team are included in the game, including fighting with star players and team owners and communicating with supporters who get angry when their performance drops, and has been loved by soccer fans since the first installment of the series was released in 1993.

In particular, the accurate implementation of tens of thousands of players, even those in countries on the outskirts of soccer, with dozens of abilities, including nationality, physical condition, and soccer skills, is considered the 'highlight' of this game.

Kohl's utilized this database.

Guinea-Bissau, a former Portuguese colony with a population of 2 million, is ranked 106th in the FIFA rankings.

From the 1994 Confederation of African Football (CAF) Nations Cup to 2015, they failed to make it to the preliminary round, but from 2017 to this year, they made it to the finals for four consecutive competitions.

Frederic Mendy, who played as a foreign player for Ulsan Hyundai and Jeju United in the K-League in 2016 and 2017, played the field wearing a Guinea-Bissau uniform.

Coles said the subsequent process was a tedious task.

After verifying the player through Football Manager, the agent's contact information is contacted through LinkedIn, etc.

Most of the time there was no response, but there were cases where people were contacted and asked what Coles had to say.

Coles explains that many of them were reluctant to join the uncompetitive national team, but as a few showed interest, it became easier to persuade other players to use them as a precedent.

The representative example cited by Coles is Carlos Mane, born in 1994.

Having played for Sporting (Portugal), Stuttgart, and Union Berlin (Germany), he represented Portugal in his age group, but failed to advance to the adult national team.

Mane, who eventually chose the Guinea-Bissau national team, made his debut in a match against Sierra Leone on the 12th of last month, playing 93 minutes and leading the team to a 2-1 victory.

Kiftum, Marathon 2 Hours 00 minutes 35 seconds… “The Only Routine is Eating, Sleeping, and Running”





Becoming the first human to break the 2 hour, 1 minute barrier at the Chicago Marathon... Expectations for ‘Sub 2’ ↑

Coach Gervais Hakizimana (36) introduced the daily routine of Kelvin Kiftum (23, Kenya), who became the first person in human history to run a full marathon course (42.195 km) in 2 hours and 1 minute, as “just eat, sleep, and run.”

Even when the coach warns, “If you continue like this, your career as a player will end in five years,” Kiftum keeps running and running.

Kiftum set a new marathon world record of 2 hours, 00 minutes and 35 seconds through extreme training, running 300 km a week. 온라인카지노사이트

At the 2023 Chicago Marathon held in Chicago, Illinois, USA on the 8th (local time), Kiftum ran the 42.195km full course in 2 hours, 00 minutes and 35 seconds.

It is a new world record, beating the previous record of 2 hours 01 minutes 09 seconds set by Eliud Kipchoge (38, Kenya) at the Berlin Marathon in September last year by 34 seconds.

The Chicago Marathon was Kiftum's third full marathon event.

Kiftum emerged as a world-class marathoner by recording a time of 2 hours, 01 minutes and 53 seconds at the Valencia Marathon on December 4, 2022, and four months later, on April 23 of this year, at the London Marathon, he recorded a 'second place record' of 2 hours, 01 minutes and 25 seconds.

The world track and field world, which ranked Kipchoge as the number one person to achieve the world marathon's long-awaited goal of achieving 'sub 2' (running the full marathon course in under 2 hours), is turning its attention to Kelvin Kiptum, born in 1999.

Coach Hakizimana told AFP: "Kiftum trains too much. I told

him, 'If he continues like this, his career as a player could be over in five years.

“All he does all day is eat, sleep, and run.”

When he needs to increase his distance, Kipchoge runs 180 to 220 km a week.

“Kiftum runs 250 to 280 km a week, and sometimes over 300 km a week,” he said.

“While preparing for the London Marathon, I ran over 300 km a week for three weeks.

“When Kiftum shows signs of fatigue, we rest for a while, but he rarely gets tired,” he added.

Ha-seong Kim had the Best Season [sport]

Kim Ha-seong had the Best Season... Will he Soar Higher as a Shortstop Next Year?





A season where Bae Ji-hwan showed potential… Ji-Man Choi is at a crossroads in survival in the big league.

The suspended game between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets, scheduled for the 3rd (Korean time), was canceled as it was unrelated to the postseason matchup, bringing the American professional baseball Major League (MLB) regular season to an end.

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), whose team advanced to the postseason, still has fall baseball remaining, while Kim Ha-seong (27), Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres), and Bae Ji-hwan (24, Pittsburgh Pirates) have finished their seasons. 온라인카지노

Among all Korean fielders, Ha-Seong Kim had the second most successful season after Shin-Soo Choo (41, SSG Landers).

Although his performance declined at the end of the season due to physical decline, he played well with a batting average of 0.260 (140 hits in 538 at-bats), 17 home runs, 60 RBI, 84 runs, 38 stolen bases, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.749.

He still had the best defensive ability in the league, and even showed an eye for hitting, raising expectations for next season.

Based on his current performance, Kim Ha-seong is likely to be the third Korean player to receive the most votes in the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) vote.

Although it is difficult to actually win the award, he is expected to receive votes for the first time since Choo Shin-soo, who ranked 14th and 12th in 2010 and 2013, respectively, and Ryu Hyun-jin, who ranked 19th in 2019.

He is also looking to win the Gold Glove Award for Best Defender, Second Base Player or Utility Player.

Ha-seong Kim, who began his big league career in San Diego in 2021, has a four-year contract ending next year.

If he maintains the same batting production and defensive ability as this year next year, he will be worth a shot at signing a large contract.

In the United States, it is expected that San Diego will pursue a contract extension with Kim Ha-seong next season in earnest.

In this atmosphere, there is a story that could raise Kim Ha-seong's ransom even further.

Sander Boharz, who played as San Diego's starting shortstop this season, said in an interview with the San Diego Tribune, a local San Diego newspaper, on the 2nd, "I have no intention of insisting on playing shortstop next year."

While Bohartz's preferred position is known to be second base, there is a high possibility that Kim Ha-seong will return to shortstop.

Sports Illustrated predicted, “Ha-Sung Kim has solidified his position as a key cog of the team in offense and defense this year.

Even if Boharz changes positions, there will be no major problems thanks to Ha-Sung Kim’s versatile talent.”

If Kim Ha-seong, who unfortunately missed joining the '20-20 Club' this year with 17 home runs -38 stolen bases, achieves the record at shortstop next year, his value is expected to soar through the roof.

Bae Ji-hwan, who played as Pittsburgh's center fielder and second baseman, this season was 'half a success.'

In 111 games, he left with a batting average of .231 (77-for-334), 2 home runs, 32 RBI, 54 runs, 24 stolen bases, and an OPS of .608.

Although it may be disappointing to only look at his batting performance, he instead received attention for his excellent base running and brilliant defense.

The Pittsburgh team expects Bae Ji-hwan, the team's most stolen base player this season, to grow into the next generation's number one hitter as he gains experience and produces more quality batted balls.

Among the trio of Korean big leaguers, Ji-Man Choi, the eldest, had the most difficult season.

He started the new season in Pittsburgh, but played only 23 games due to injury, and even when he moved to San Diego in the second half of the season, he suffered from injuries and poor performance.

His performance this season is a batting average of 0.163 (17 hits in 104 at-bats) in 39 games, 6 home runs, 13 RBI, 12 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.624.

This is the fewest game appearances and report card since 2018, when he made the leap to a semi-major level player in the big league.

Choi Ji-man, who qualified as a free agent at the end of this season, will have to worry about survival in the big league next year.

Choi Dong-yeol said, “I am very happy to have entered the 26 second range in the 50m breaststroke.”

Qin Haiyang, who outspokenly says, “I want to match (rehabilitating breaststroke powerhouse) Adam Pitty,” is a good stimulant for Choi Dong-yeol.

Choi Dong-yeol said, "Qin Haiyang has become a world-class athlete since this year.

Watching an Asian athlete of the same age as me dominate the world in breaststroke, I promised myself, 'I shouldn't get tired, too.

I can do it if I try hard.'"

He added, "Breaststroke requires a physical condition.

“Even though I am at a disadvantage, it is a sport that allows me to compete with Western players such as the United States and Australia through technical effort.

I am also curious about my limits.

I will go to the end,” he said.

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.”
