The Golden Generation of Korean Swimming [sports]

The Golden Generation of Korean Swimming, Dividing the Golden Waters... “Next is the Paris Olympics”

At the World Aquatics Championships, 2 golds, 1 silver, and 2 bronze medals, the most since Park Tae-hwan in 2007, won a ticket to the Olympics, including diving.

The ‘renaissance’ of Korean swimming has begun. The 'golden generation' born in the 2000s, led by Hwang Sun-woo (20) and Kim Woo-min (22), achieved the best ever performance at the 2024 International Aquatics Federation World Championships, brightening the future of Korean swimming.

Korea ranked 8th with two gold medals, one silver medal, and two bronze medals at the World Championships, which ended in Doha, Qatar, on the 19th (Korean time).

This is the first time that Korea ranked in the top 10 at the long course world championships, which are regular Olympic standards. 카지노사이트

The previous highest ranking was 13th place (1 gold, 1 bronze) at the 2007 Melbourne Games, where Park Tae-hwan won gold in the men's 400m freestyle and bronze in the 200m freestyle.

In this competition, Korea swept five medals, the most ever, led by its golden generation.

Kim Woo-min won the men's 400m freestyle, giving Korea its first World Championship gold medal in 13 years, and Hwang Sun-woo performed a golden performance in the men's 200m freestyle.

The silver medal in the men's 800m relay was also a great achievement of this competition.

Kim Woo-min, Hwang Sun-woo, Lee Ho-jun (23), Yang Jae-hoon (25), and Yu-yeon Lee (23) won the silver medal with a time of 7 minutes 01.94 seconds, just 0.1 seconds behind China.

This is the first World Championships team event medal in Korean swimming history.

Valuable achievements were also achieved in areas other than management.

Kim Su-ji (25), who became the first Korean diving world championship medalist in Gwangju in 2019, added bronze medals in the women's 3m springboard and mixed synchro 3m springboard.

There were many athletes who did not win medals but earned precious qualifications to participate in the Paris Olympics.

Lee Jae-kyung (24) and Woo Ha-ram (25) in the men's 3m springboard, Shin Jeong-hwi (22) in the men's 10m platform, and Kim Na-hyeon (20) in the women's 10m platform won the right to participate in the individual event at the Paris Olympics through this competition.

Artistic swimming duet Lee Ri-young (23) and Heo Yun-seo (18) also won tickets to the Paris Olympics.

Many say that the golden age of Korean swimming has just begun.

This is because most of the players are in their early 20s and have the potential to grow rapidly as they gain experience in the future.

Sunwoo Hwang set a new world junior record with 1 minute 44.62 seconds in the men's 200m freestyle preliminaries at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, where he competed at the age of 18, and advanced to the semifinals as first place overall.

In the finals, he failed to control his pace and finished in 7th place with a time of 1 minute 45.26 seconds, but he quickly improved thereafter and now stands at the top of the world.

Kim Woo-min, who was not eligible to participate in the individual event at the Tokyo Olympics, won the gold medal in the 400m freestyle after 2 years and 6 months.

The golden generation is setting its sights on the Paris Olympics to be held in July.

Since Australia, a freestyle powerhouse, did not participate in this competition, and England and the United States have second-level athletes, it is expected that a 'real match' will unfold at the Olympics.

Advice From 39-Year-Old Shooter Heo Il-young [sports]

Advice From 39-Year-Old Shooter Heo Il-young... “If you’re going to Shoot Without Confidence, Sit on the Bench”

A 28-point explosion, including 3 points and 5 hits against Samsung... Look at Taejong Moon’s record of playing until he was 43 years old.

Heo Il-young is ranked third in age in professional basketball.

Ham Ji-hoon of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis was born in 1984 and is the oldest player this season. 카지노

Next are Woo-seop Yang and Il-young Heo of Seoul SK.

Both were born in 1985, but Yang Woo-seop has an earlier birthday.

Heo Il-young has already become a veteran among veterans, but his ‘fingertips’ are still alive.

Heo Il-young, who left the team due to injury in early December last year, returned to the court this month.

He scored 17 points in the home game against Anyang CheongKwanJang on the 10th, and scored 28 points in the away game against Seoul Samsung on the 11th.

Janggi 3-pointer also hit 5 shots.

Heo Il-young, who is in his 15th season in professional basketball, expressed the idea that a professional player must step onto the court with confidence.

Heo Il-young, who met with reporters at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul immediately after beating Samsung 80-70, said, "I don't go in when I don't have confidence.

Whether I go in or not, I have to throw first. If a player can't throw, it's right to sit on the bench instead of running." He emphasized.

Heo Il-young said, “Now that I have more years of experience, I can see what other players are like.

Everyone can tell when they go in well and when they don’t,” and added, “There are players who are confident even though they didn’t go in, and there are players who are hesitant even though they made a shot before.

“I wish that wasn’t the case,” he said.

He added, "If you don't go in, you can go out (to the bench) and come back in and throw."

Heo Il-young chose his teammate Oh Jae-hyun as a player who shoots with confidence in practice.

Jaehyun Oh has been criticized for his weak shooting since he entered the professional ranks.

Unlike other players, he had a unique shooting posture in which he twisted his body to shoot, so he received many doubts as to whether he could correct it.

However, the player who participated in the All-Star Game 3-point contest as the ‘SK representative shooter’ this season was Oh Jae-hyun.

Oh Jae-hyeon won a ticket to the finals, which was given to only 4 out of 13 contestants in the 3-point contest preliminary round, and proudly got rid of the label of 'weak shooting.'

Heo Il-young praised Jae-hyeon, saying, "It seems like Jae-hyun has overcome (lack of confidence) well.

I can see that he has gained confidence when shooting in contests as well."

Regarding Oh Jae-hyeon's unique shooting posture, he said, "I don't care about posture.

Even in American professional basketball, there are many players who have poor shooting posture but are good at shooting," and repeatedly emphasized, "Confidence is important."

Heo Il-young, who only wanted to play until he was 40, is said to have revised his original goal.

He looks over the records of Taejong Moon.

Shooter Taejong Moon, born to an American father and a Korean mother, began playing in Korean professional basketball in the 2010-2011 season and played for 9 seasons until the 2018-2019 season.

He played until the age of 43.

Heo Il-young said, "As long as I take good care of my body, there will be no problem.

Even then, if I am competitive, I still have the desire to play." Heo Il-young said, "Now, I am no longer excluded from the team because I am older, as I used to be.

Coach (Jeon Hee-cheol) also said that he will not judge based on age." He said.

He smiled and said, "Honestly, it's hard. 스포츠 토토사이트

The day after the game, my whole body feels sore, starting from my waist.

If I don't get greedy and play without getting injured, there will be a team looking for me and I want to do that for one more year."
