Track and Field and Swimming
Woo Sang-hyeok (27, Yongin City Hall) and Hwang Seon-woo (20, Gangwon-do Office),
who represent Korea’s track and field and swimming, met by chance in Jeju Island in April and said,
“We achieved good results at the 2023 World Championships and won a gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games.” Let’s take it,” he decided.
Hwang Seon-woo set a new Korean record of 1:44:42 in the men’s 200m freestyle at the Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships held last month and won the bronze medal.
Woo Sang-hyeok will compete in the men’s high jump final at the Budapest World Athletics Championships on the 23rd at 2:58 am (Korean time).
Looking at each other, they said, “We are moving in the same direction,” and after spending a hot summer,
the two aim to win together at the Asian Games in Hangzhou in the fall.
Coincidentally, there are world-class athletes in the men’s high jump and swimming freestyle in Asia.
Woo Sang-hyeok will compete with Mutaz Esa Barsim (32, Qatar),
the “best jumper in active play,” and Hwang Seon-woo, Panzhanle (19),
a rising star in China, for the position of “Asia’s Supreme.”
In the men’s high jump, Asia has two world-class athletes.
The 2022 World Indoor Championships champion (Woo Sang-hyuk) and the 2022 Outdoor World Championships 1st and 2nd place (Barsim, Woo Sang-hyuk) were all produced in Asia.
Mutaz Esa Barsim
As Barsim expressed his intention to participate in the Asian Games in Hangzhou,
The men’s high jump in the Asian Games has been elevated to a ‘world championship level’ status.
Barsim won two consecutive Asian Games titles in Guangzhou (2m27) in 2010 and Incheon (2m35) in 2014.
However, he suffered an ankle injury in the 2017 season and missed the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang.
As Woo Sang-hyeok finished 10th with 2m20 at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games when he was a high school student,
but won a silver medal with 2m28 in Jakarta in 2018.
Woo Sang-hyeok, who took off as the world’s top jumper starting from the 2021 Tokyo Olympics (4th place with 2m35),
has no opponent other than Barsim on the Asian stage.
Woo Sang-hyeok also won the Asian Championships this year with ease.
Barshim’s participation in the Asian Games made it impossible to guarantee a gold medal,
but Woo Sang-hyeok welcomed the rivalry with Barshim.
Woo Sang-hyeok said, “I would have been disappointed if Barshim did not attend,” and said,
“I enjoy competition.
Barshim is participating, so I can enjoy the Hangzhou Asian Games more.”
If Woo Sang-hyeok wins the rivalry with Barshim, Korean athletics will win the Asian Games men’s high jump gold medal in 21 years
since Lee Jin-taek (winner in Bangkok in 1998 and Busan in 2002).
Hwang Seon-woo will challenge the ‘three crowns’ in the 100m and 200m freestyle and the 800m relay in the team event at this Asian Games, which is his first appearance.
The growth of Chinese rising star Pan Zhanle gives Hwang Seon-woo a healthy sense of tension.
Pan Zhanle won the 2023 Chinese Championships in May at Hangzhou Olympic Sports Aquatic Arena
the venue of the Hangzhou Asian Games, setting a new Asian record of 100m freestyle 47.22 seconds and a personal best record of 200m 1:44.65.
The previous Asian record for the 100m freestyle was 47.56 seconds set by Hwang Seon-woo at the Tokyo Olympics.
Hwang Seon-woo’s personal best in the 200m freestyle was 1:44:42, ahead of Panzanler by 0.23 seconds.
At the World Championships in Fukuoka, Hwang Seon-woo finished third in the 200m freestyle,
while Panzanler failed to advance to the final (tied for 10th in the semi-final).
In the 100m freestyle, Panzhanler finished fourth, and Hwang Seon-woo finished ninth in the semifinals, unfortunately not making it to the final stage.
The pride match between Hwang Seon-woo and Pan Zhanle is considered a big match
to shine in the swimming event of the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Hwang Seon-woo said, “In the 200m freestyle, I am number one in Asia,
so I will train hard to keep that position in the Asian Games as well.
” It will be difficult to surpass this in the period.
Still, I want to narrow the gap with Panzanler in the 100m and reach the podium by all means.”
The badminton women’s singles are expected to be a composition in which other competitors challenge Ahn Se-young (21, Samsung Life Insurance).
No. 1 Ranking
This season, ‘World Ranking No. 1’ Ahn Se-young, Yamaguchi Akane (Japan), Chen Yu-fei (China), and Tai Zi-ying (Taiwan) formed the ‘Big 4’.
Ahn Se-young is still behind Yamaguchi with 8 wins and 12 losses, but this year,
he took the lead with 3 wins and 2 losses.
Tai Ziying, who was originally superior, won 5 wins (1 loss) this year, bringing her career record to 8 wins and 2 losses.
Even Chen Yufei, who only had 1 win (8 losses) until last year, won 4 wins (2 losses) this year.
If Hangzhou wins against Chen Yufei, his hometown, at the Asian Games,
the past natural enemy relationship can be completely liquidated.
Ahn Se-young is trying to diversify his playing style, such as strengthening his weakness,
attack power, in order to respond flexibly and effectively to his three rivals.
Ahn Se-young suffered the loss of being eliminated in the first round at the Jakarta/Palembang tournament five years ago.
At that time, Korean badminton was humiliated with a ‘no medal’ for the first time in 40 years.
In the past five years, Ahn Se-young has grown significantly,
she will go to the Asian Games in Hangzhou as ‘the number one candidate for the championship’.
In fencing, one of the Asian Games’ representative ‘medal-worthy events’,
a pleasant ‘rival match between Korean players’ is expected to unfold.
Gu Bon-gil (34, National Sports Promotion Agency) and Oh Sang-wook (26, Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall),
the representative men’s saber runners, are looking forward to a face-to-face confrontation in the Asian Games final for the second consecutive time.
Koo Bon-gil won gold medals in the men’s individual saber event consecutively at the 2010 Guangzhou,
2014 Incheon, and 2018 Jakarta/Palembang Asian Games,
will challenge for a fourth consecutive victory in this tournament.
Koo Bon-gil won 15-14 in the final match against national team junior Oh Sang-wook,
who was a rising ‘divine’ at the Jakarta Games five years ago,
and won 3 consecutive losses in the individual competition.
At the time, after beating Oh Sang-wook, who was at stake in military service,
in the finals, Gu Bon-gil shed tears with a complicated heart even after winning the gold medal,
but in the team event, they collaborated to win the gold medal and had a ‘happy ending’ together.
This time, if they meet in the individual event, they will compete without concessions,
while in the team event, they will have to play a role in leading the Korean men’s saber team to win three consecutive championships.
