Swimming star Hwang Seon-woo (20, Gangwon Provincial Office), who competed in good faith with China's Fan Zhanle (19) at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, smiled brightly, saying, "I feel proud that I have had a positive influence on the sports world of both countries." 바카라사이트

On the 30th, Hwang Sun-woo attended the press conference of the gold medalist held at the Sports Diplomacy Lounge of the Korea Sports Council at the Grand New Century Hotel in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, and then met with reporters and said, "Korean and Chinese fans used to fight a lot (online), but this time, fans from both countries fought with each other. “They congratulated and cheered for the results of the game,” he said.

He said, “In this respect, this was a very meaningful competition,” and added, “I hope that fans in Korea and China will continue to support each other instead of criticizing each other.”

Hwang Sun-woo and Fan Zhanle, the two leading figures in Korean and Chinese swimming, received a lot of applause for showing encouragement and respect for each other throughout the competition.

After finishing the men's 200m freestyle finals at the Asian Games held at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center in Zhejiang Province, China on the 27th, Fan Zhanle grabbed the hand of Hwang Sun-woo, who beat him and took first place, and held it up in front of his home fans in China, creating a lot of emotion.

Hwang Sun-woo also praised Fan Zhanle every time he was asked about it at press conferences, etc., calling him “the pride of Asia.”

The 'sportsmanship' shown by the two players became a symbol of sports friendship between Korea and China, and played a big role in alleviating the emotions of sports fans from both countries who had been disparaging the opponent and posting hateful comments.

Meanwhile, Korea and China have clashed over decision disputes and unsportsmanlike play in many international sports competitions.

International conventions have become hotbeds of anti-China and anti-Korea sentiment, and have often degenerated into fuel for hatred toward the other country.

Hwang Sun-woo also urged domestic sports fans who make hateful comments toward Chinese players online to refrain.

He said, “Rather than criticizing (Chinese players), I hope they will show their sincere support,” and added, “I hope that the atmosphere in the sports world of both countries will change.”

Sunwoo Hwang won two gold medals, two silver medals, and two bronze medals at this competition, including winning the 200m freestyle and 800m freestyle swimming relay.

Hwang Sun-woo, who achieved the best results, will return to Korea today and begin preparations for the National Sports Festival to be held in early October.

Hwang Seon-woo said, “We need to prepare not only for the National Sports Festival, but also for the national team selection competition held in November,” and added, “Korean swimmers’ skills have improved greatly, so if they are even a little distracted, they could fall.”

He smiled and said, "Actually, after finishing all the games yesterday, I wanted to eat delicious food (which I had endured for so long), but the restaurant in the athletes' village was closed, so I couldn't eat it," and added, "When I return home today, I will have a good day's rest."
