Regarding the background of his decision to retire, he said, “I’m not in good shape at the moment,” adding, “I discussed it with my family after the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, and I decided not to challenge for the 2024 Paris Olympics.”

Kim Hyun-woo said, “Thank you for your support. I will never forget your support. I ask for your continued interest in Korean wrestling.”

Kim Hyun-woo was a sign of Korean wrestling who won the gold medal in the men’s Greco-Roman 66kg wrestling at the London Olympics after overcoming a right eye injury.

Korean wrestling has declined due to underlying problems, but Kim Hyun-woo has kept his pride by making great results in various international competitions.

He led Korean wrestling by winning a gold medal at the 2013 World Championships, a gold medal at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, and a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

However, Kim couldn’t handle the weight of time. Many bad lucks also hampered him.

He originally made the 2020 Tokyo Olympics his retirement stage, but he was confirmed to be infected with the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a few days before the quarter competition at stake.

He postponed his retirement to the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and devoted himself to training again, but unfortunately failed to win a medal due to a rib injury ahead of the opening of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Ryu Han-soo (35, Samsung Life Insurance), a 67kg Greco-Roman figure skater who is Kim Hyun-woo’s best friend, has decided to challenge until the Paris Olympics.

He applied for the first round of the 2024 national team selection match to be held in Taebaek City, Gangwon Province from the 13th.

If Ryu wears the national flag after the second round of selection, he will be able to qualify for the Paris Olympics through the Olympic quarter competition.
