The Korean badminton team set a goal of winning medals in all events at the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September. It is a determination to regain the status of a badminton powerhouse by overcoming the pain of a ‘no medal’ at the time of the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.
At Media Day held on the 16th at the Jincheon National Training Center in Chungcheongbuk-do, national team coach Kim Hak-gyun said, “We have progressed step by step toward our biggest goal, the Asian Games and the Olympics.” I think,” he said confidently.
He added, “I will win medals in all 7 sub-categories of the Asian Games,” adding, “If I get good results in the team event that will be held first, the individual performance will automatically follow.” At the Asian Games, seven gold medals are at stake in men’s and women’s team events, men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
Korean badminton suffered a period of stagnation for a while, but it revived this year. Ahn Se-young, the star of women’s singles, has won seven international competitions this year alone, rising to the top of the world rankings for the first time since Bang Soo-hyeon, the gold medalist at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
Ahn Se-young, who was knocked out in the first round after meeting his natural enemy Chen Yu-fei (China) during the Jakarta Games, said, “I was lacking at the time of the Jakarta Games, but now I am well-supplied, and now I am a player everyone expects.” I have to show you. I prepared hard because there were a lot of regrets, and I’m thinking of going to see the results.”
In the women’s doubles, the world’s 3rd place Kim So-young and Gong Hee-yong and 4th place Lee So-hee and Baek Ha-na, who are two pairs, are drawing a picture of meeting in the final. Lee Kyung-won, women’s doubles coach, said, “Our goal is to have our players compete in the finals at the Olympics and Asian Games. We are practicing the game,” he explained.
Men’s doubles Choi Sol-gyu-Kim Won-ho, Seo Seung-jae-Kang Min-hyuk, and mixed doubles Seo Seung-jae-Chae Yoo-jeong and Kim Won-ho-Jung Na-eun, who had poor results in international competitions compared to women’s singles and women’s doubles, dream of a great turnaround in the Asian Games. Seo Seung-jae said, “It is true that my performance is not good (compared to women’s events).” I will try to raise it,” he promised. In the men’s singles, Jeon Hyuk-jin and Lee Yun-kyu are on the hunt for medals.먹튀검증
Prior to the Hangzhou Asian Games, the national team will participate in major international competitions, such as the World Individual Championships on the 21st to 27th and the World Badminton Federation (BWF) World Tour Super 1000 China Open on the 5th to 10th of next month. In particular, the World Championship, which first started in 1977, is the most prestigious international tournament among tournaments in which five events (men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles) are held in a tournament format, so they are showing sexual greed as much as the Asian Games. .
