[Asian Games] Woo Sang-hyuk challenges for his first gold medal… Hwang Seon-hong and Uzbekistan in the semifinals
“Smile Jumper” Woo Sang-hyuk (Yongin City Hall) prepares to take flight to deliver the first gold medal to Korean track and field at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Sang-hyuk Woo will face off against his current best scorer and rival, Mutaz Essa Barsim (Qatar),
in the men’s high jump finals held at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Stadium in China at 8 p.m. (Korean time) on the 4th.
Woo Sang-hyuk, who won the silver medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games,
is aiming for his first Asian Games gold medal.
The Korea Athletics Federation selected only Woo Sang-hyuk as the clearest candidate to win this competition. 바카라사이트
We place great expectations on the skills and experience of Woo Sang-hyuk,
who has achieved brilliant results in major competitions such as 4th place at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics,
victory at the 2022 World Indoor Championships, 2nd place at the Outdoor World Championships, and victory at this year’s Diamond League Final.
However, the wall for Barsim to compete with Woo Sang-hyuk and Ja-woong is still high.
Barsim, who is one of the best jumpers in the world, won the 2010 Guangzhou and 2014 Incheon Asian Games,
also skipped the Diamond League Final to win the gold medal again.
The rivalry between Woo Sang-hyuk and Barsim is one of the highlights of this athletics event that foreign media and world athletics are looking forward to.
Korean National Soccer Team
The Korean national soccer team, which defeated China 2-0 and advanced to the semifinals,
will compete with Uzbekistan at 9 p.m. at Hangzhou Huanglong Sports Center Stadium to advance to the finals.
Korea, led by coach Hwang Sun-hong, has reached the semifinals for the sixth time in a row and is attempting to win the tournament for the third time in a row,
while Uzbekistan has advanced to the semifinals for the first time in 29 years since the 1994 Hiro era tournament.
The mighty spear of the Taegeuk Warriors, who scored 23 goals until the quarterfinals,
the solid defense of Uzbekistan, which allowed only two goals in four games, face off head-on.
If they defeat Uzbekistan, Korean soccer will face the winner of Japan-Hong Kong for the gold medal at 9 PM on the 7th.
Soft tennis expects to win the gold medal in the men’s and women’s team event at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Tennis Center at 11 a.m.
Among the five medals at stake in this tournament, Korea’s soft tennis team aimed for three gold medals in the men’s and women’s team event and men’s singles event.
