There are athletes who dream of a spectacular rise at the Paris Olympics. They are determined to take the top spot on the Asian stage ahead of the Olympics to be held in 2024. Hwang Seon-woo (Gangwon Provincial Office), who has emerged as a new star in Korean swimming, and Woo Sang-hyuk (Yongin City Hall), the ‘smile jumper’ in track and field high jump, are the signs of the Korean athletes to watch at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which opens on the 23rd.

Sunwoo Hwang showed off his world-class skills by winning consecutive prizes (1 silver medal, 1 bronze medal) in the men’s 200m freestyle event at the last two world championships, including the Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships that ended last July.

In the Asian Games, where he is participating for the first time, Hwang Sun-woo aims to win three gold medals, including the 100m and 200m freestyle and the 800m team relay with his teammates, known as the “golden generation.”

The match between Hwang Sun-woo and China’s Fan Zhanle is considered one of the biggest matches of the Asian Games.

While Hwang Sun-woo won the bronze medal in the 200m freestyle at the Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships, Fan Zhanle defied expectations and did not even make it to the finals. In the 100m freestyle, Fan Zhanle took fourth place, and Hwang Sun-woo failed to advance to the finals. Fan Zhanle currently holds the Asian record for the 100m freestyle, but the previous record was held by Hwang Sun-woo.

If Hwang Sun-woo, who has proven his world-class competitiveness, competes head-to-head with Chinese swimmers, who claim to be the best in Asia, in the short-distance event, Kim Woo-min (Gangwon Provincial Office) is the unrivaled champion in the freestyle middle and long-distance events, at least at the Asian Games.

Kim Woo-min aims to win four gold medals in this competition, including the 400m, 800m, 1500m freestyle, and the team event, something that even Park Tae-hwan could not achieve in the past. Kim Woo-min did not hide his extraordinary determination, saying, “I want to make a brilliant debut in my first Asian Games.”

The 800m relay, in which Hwang Sun-woo and Kim Woo-min are likely to participate, is one of the events that the national team has put a lot of effort into for a long time. They are aiming for their first ever team gold medal in this competition. Expectations are high as the national team is showing off its peak skills by repeatedly breaking Korean records at the Fukuoka World Championships.온라인카지노

Woo Sang-hyuk, the star of the high jump who attracted attention at the Tokyo Olympics for his world-class skills and always smiling positive personality, is expected to play a leading role in establishing the pride of Korean track and field at the Asian Games.

Woo Sang-hyuk took fourth place at the Tokyo Olympics, the highest ever Olympic result for Korean track and field. Since then, he has continued to perform well on the international stage, winning a gold medal at the World Indoor Championships, winning the Doha Diamond League, and winning a silver medal at the World Championships in Athletics (2022 Eugene Games).

Woo Sang-hyuk aims for his first Asian Games gold medal in this competition. Woo Sang-hyuk, who placed 10th at the 2014 Incheon Games, won a silver medal at the Jakarta-Palembang Games five years ago.

Sanghyuk Woo will face off against Mutaz Essa Barsim (Qatar), who is considered the strongest player in the Asian Games. It is a big match worthy of the Olympics or World Championships.

Barsim is the loser of the high jump event at the 2022 World Athletics Championships, where Woo Sang-hyuk won the silver medal. Barsim reached the top in the 2010 Guangzhou and 2014 Incheon competitions, but did not participate in the Jakarta-Palembang competition due to injury.

If Woo Sang-hyuk surpasses Barsim, he will become the first Korean athlete to become the Asian Games men’s high jump gold medalist in 21 years since Lee Jin-taek at the 2002 Busan Games.
