Park Hye-jung succeeded in 169kg in the third round of the women’s weightlifting class 87kg or more at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at Xiaoshan Sports Center in Zhejiang Province, China on the 7th.
Park Hye-jung, who weighed 125 kilograms in the previous impression, conquered the top of Asia with a total of 294 kilograms.
This revived the gold vein of Korean weightlifting, which was cut off 13 years after current Vice Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Jang Mi-ran won the gold medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. Korea’s weightlifting team won one gold medal, two silver medals and three bronze medals.
There was no way to stop Park Hye-jung. As Li Wen-won of China, the world’s strongest weight class, was absent due to injury, it was expected that Park Hye-jung would be on her own stage early on. In line with that, Park Hye-jung applied for a higher weight than her competitors in the first phase for both the impression and the dragon image.
As Son Young-hee (Busan Sports Council) and medal competitor Duam Axon Chaidi (Thailand), who predicted a family fight for the gold medal, took the lead with 115kg in the impression, Park Hye-jung lightly lifted 118kg in the first round. Afterwards, he finished first in the increase with 125kg following 123kg. Son Young-hee also followed with 124 kilograms.
It was also a two-way battle between Park Hye-jung and Son Young-hee at the Yongsang. When Son Young-hee started with 155kg, Park Hye-jung continued to lead with 157kg. Son Young-hee applied for 169kg in the third round of Yongsang, but failed, and finally lifted 283kg.
Park Hye-jung’s gold medal is confirmed. Now, Park Hye-jung, who entered the individual record race, picked up 169 kilograms in the third round of the Yongsang, and confirmed the gold medal with a total of 294 kilograms. 안전놀이터
When she was in middle school, Park dreamed of becoming a weightlifter after watching Jang Mi-ran play. It rose sharply by winning both the World Junior Championship in Heraklion, Greece, in May last year and the Asia Junior Championship in Tashkent in July.
She also quickly rose to the top rank on the senior stage. With Lee Won-won absent at this year’s World Championship, Park Hye-jung won three gold medals, winning all of the impressions, dragon awards, and total. As he rose to the top at the Asian Games, he emerged as a threat to Lee Won-won in the future.
