Shin Yubin, who brought home an Asian Games gold medal for South Korea’s table tennis team after 21 years, beamed as she lifted her gold medal to the media at the Mix Zone.
Shin was paired with Jeon Jeon-hee to defeat North Korea’s Cha Soo-soo and Park Su-kyong 4-1 in the women’s doubles final of the table tennis event at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Tuesday.
Shin initially had to rehabilitate for over a year from a wrist injury sustained at the 2021 World Table Tennis Championships in Houston.
In a twist of fate, the Asian Games were postponed by a year due to COVID-19, allowing her to compete for her country.
“I was injured, so I wasn’t actually here,” Shin said, adding, “I was lucky enough to be able to play, 온라인카지노 and I was grateful that I was able to play, and I performed well, so I think it was a memorable first Asian Games.”
During the press conference and interview, Shin Yubin expressed her confidence in her partner Jeon Jeon-hee.
“She is a very solid player technically,” she said, “and she gives me confidence in my technique while playing doubles, so I can play confidently,” Shin reiterated her trust and gratitude.
The South Korean team faced North Korea in the Asian Games final for the first time in 33 years.
But Shin Yubin didn’t pay attention to the “external” factors.
“No matter who the opponent was, I prepared the same way I always do with my sister,” she says, “and the results were good, and I had fun and did well without thinking about anything else.”
The next step for Shin is the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
“It hasn’t been decided yet, but if I go, I’ll do what I’ve always done, practice harder, and when I go, I want to make sure I have no regrets,” she said.
Just as her skills are improving, she is still very tall.
“I thought I had stopped growing, but I’m still a bit taller at 169cm, but the taller the better (laughs).” 무료슬롯게임
