“When I was a kid, I dreamed of competing at the Asian Games after watching my parents on TV, and now it’s a dream come true. “This is a sentiment shared by many of the medalists at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games. They are ‘second-generation athletes’ who followed in the footsteps of their fathers and mothers .Baseball’s newest ace, Moon Dong-ju (19-Hanwha Eagles), is the son of former hammer thrower Moon Jun-hum, the head coach of the Changheung County Athletics Department, who coached the national team from 2010 to 2018, including the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games and the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.
Born in 2003, Moon grew up watching his father compete in the Asian Games and was thrilled when he pitched six scoreless innings in the final against Chinese Taipei on Sunday to lead Korea to the gold medal.”I am very happy to have won the Asian Games gold medal that I dreamed of since I was a child,” he said after winning the gold medal.Badminton Kim Hye-jung (25-Samsung Life Insurance) followed in the footsteps of her “mom” 29 years ago by standing atop the podium.
Kim won the gold medal in the women’s team badminton final on Monday. She didn’t play in the final, as the South Korean team swept China 3-0, but she was on the podium as a member of the team .Kim’s mother is Jeong So-young, the director of the Jeonbuk Sports Association, who won the women’s doubles title at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and the team title at the 1994 Hiroshima Asian Games.
It was the first time Korean badminton had won a gold medal in the women’s team event since Hiroshima in 1994, and the daughter took up the 카지노사이트킹 mantle from her mother .If badminton has a mother-daughter gold medal, table tennis has a father-daughter silver medal .Oh Jun-sung (17, Mirae Asset Securities) won a silver medal with his brothers in the men’s table tennis team event.
Born in June 2006, Oh Jun-sung became the youngest Korean men’s table tennis medalist in Asian Games history, but more than that, Oh Jun-sung is the son of Oh Sang, the head coach of Mirae Asset Securities. Oh was a key member of the men’s table tennis team that won nine medals, including seven silver and two bronze, at the Asian Games. Kim Won-ho (24-Samsung Life), who won silver in the men’s doubles, followed in the footsteps of his mother, Gil Young-ah, a women’s badminton legend who led South Korea to team gold at the 1994 Hiroshima Games.
Yoon Ji-soo (30-Seoul City Hall), who won the individual women’s sabre fencing event, is the daughter of Yoon Hak-gil, a former ace of the Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization. Although Yoon never competed at the Asian Games, he played at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, where baseball was a demonstration sport.Some “athletic parents” used the Games to give their children the dream of competing at the Asian Games. Kim In-seop (Samsung Life), who coached the men’s Greco-Roman wrestling team, is the father of Kim Jae-sang (19), a rookie infielder for the Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization.
“My dream is to play on the international stage with my father,” Kim recently told Yonhap News Agency.
