Hwang Sun-woo (20-Gangwon Provincial Government), Lee Ho-joon (22-Daegu Metropolitan City Government) and Fan Zhan-li (19-China) will compete in different heats in the men’s 200m freestyle at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Hwang Sun-woo swims in lane 4 of heat 3 of the men’s 200m freestyle during the men’s swimming management preliminaries at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Sunday at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Pool in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China .Lee Ho-joon swims lane 5 in the final heat of heat 5, while Pan Zhan-er swims lane 4 in heat 4.Katsuhiro Matsumoto (26-Japan) is in lane 4, right next to Lee in heat 5.The qualifier, which starts at 11:42 a.m. ET, is an exploratory event. Thirty-six players will compete in five groups, with the top eight qualifiers advancing to the final at 8:48 p.m. ET .One of the favorites in the 200-meter freestyle is Hwang Sun-woo. Hwang has won back-to-back World Championship medals in the 200-meter freestyle (second in Budapest 2022 and third in Fukuoka 2023).His personal best in the event is 1:44.42, which is 0.23 seconds faster than Panzaner’s 1:44.65.In fact, she even broke the Asian record (1:44.39) held by Sun Yang (China, 31), who is considered the “greatest Asian swimmer of all time. “I came within 0.03 seconds of the Asian record in the 200-meter freestyle, so I hope to set an Asian record and stand at the top of the podium,” Huang said on the 21st after arriving in Hangzhou .Hwang won his first individual Asian Games medal (third) in the 100-meter freestyle on the 24th and then won his first gold medal in the 800-meter freestyle relay on the 25th. On the 26th, he won a silver medal in the men’s 400-meter medley relay. When Hwang Sun-woo wins gold in the men’s 200-meter freestyle on Sunday, he will become the first South Korean swimmer to win more than one gold medal at a single Asian Games in 13 years after Park Tae-hwan won back-to-back titles in Doha in 2006 and Guangzhou in 2010.Pan, who won the 100-meter freestyle in an Asian record time of 46.97 seconds and also won gold in the men’s 400-meter medley relay, will attempt to complete the trifecta in front of his home fans .Lee Ho-joon also medaled in the 200-meter freestyle. At the Fukuoka World Championships, he made the final with Hwang Sun-woo and finished sixth (1:46.04). It was the first time in the history of the World Aquatics Championships that two South Korean swimmers finished at the same time. If Hwang and Lee stand on the podium at the same time in the 200-meter freestyle, Korea’s men’s swimming management will have two medalists in a single event at the Asian Games for the first time in 21 years since the men’s 1,500-meter 스포츠토토 freestyle at Busan 2002 (Cho Sung-mo, 2nd; Han Kyu-chul, 3rd).
