I want to see more, but Hwang Sunwoo’s last race today…6th medal challenge

Hwang Sun-woo, who has won medals in all five events he has participated in so far, is determined to achieve a successful finish by winning a medal in the men’s 400-meter relay, the last event.

Hwang Sun-woo is scheduled to compete in the men’s 400-meter relay final at the Olympic Sports Center Aquatic Sports Arena in Hangzhou, China, at 9:48 p.m. on the 28th (Korea Standard Time). The 400-meter relay is Hwang Sun-woo’s sixth event in this competition.

Earlier, Hwang Sun-woo won a total of five medals. Starting with a bronze medal in the men’s 100-meter freestyle on the 24th, he added a men’s 800-meter relay gold medal on the 25th, a men’s 400-meter medley relay silver on the 26th, a men’s 200-meter freestyle gold medal and a mixed 400-meter medley relay bronze medal on the 27th. 토토사이트

Hwang also rewrote various records. He became the second 200-meter freestyle gold medalist after Park Tae-hwan, and ahead of him, he also led the first-ever team gold medal at the Asian Games.

On top of that, he shortened his record in four events except for the 100-meter freestyle. In the relay 800, which competed as a member of the “Dream Team,” he set a new Asian record of 7 minutes 01.73 seconds, while 200m freestyle (1:44:40), 400m medley relay (3:32.05), and 400m mixed medley relay (3:44:64) also broke Korean records.

Hwang Sun-woo was not satisfied with the tremendous achievement he had already made. In the men’s 400-meter relay race, he was determined to be on the podium. “My goal was to win a medal in every event I played. “I’m satisfied with the results so far, but I want to prepare well for the last game and get good results,” he said.

Only three times have he won the men’s 400-meter relay at the previous Asian Games: Busan in 2002, Doha in 2006, and Guangzhou in 2010. They finished third behind China and Japan in all three competitions.

The national team aims to break the Korean record with the men’s 400-meter relay medal for the first time in 13 years, with Hwang Sun-woo and Lee Ho-joon, who won the 200-meter freestyle bronze medal.

The Korean record is 3:15.39 set by Hwang Sun-woo, Kim Woo-min, Yang Jae-hoon, and Chun Ho-hyun (hereinafter, Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province) at the National Sports Festival last year.

As Hwang Sun-woo and other players are in good condition, they are expected to be able to catch two rabbits.

Hwang Sun-woo expressed confidence, saying, “The 400-meter relay also manages his condition well, and if he matches well with his colleagues, he will be able to set a Korean record.”

If Hwang Sun-woo, who won a total of five medals, including two gold medals, one silver and two bronze medals, takes the podium in the men’s 400-meter relay, he will become the most swimming medalist in a single Asian Games since Park Tae-hwan, who won seven medals each in Doha in 2006 and Guangzhou in 2010.
