Hwang Sun-woo, 200m bronze, now 100m freestyle beats his own record by two years

South Korean swimming sensation Hwang Sun-woo holds a doll after winning bronze in the men’s 200m freestyle final at the 2023 World Aquatics Championships at Marine Messe Fukuoka Hall in Fukuoka, Japan, Friday afternoon.

Hwang Sun-woo (20, Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province), who broke the Korean record in the 200-meter freestyle to win bronze at the World Championships, will try to break the record in his next event, the 100-meter freestyle.

Hwang will compete in the men’s 100-meter freestyle preliminaries at the 2023 World Aquatics Championships Fukuoka at 11:13 a.m. on Saturday at Fukuoka Marine Messe Fukuoka Hall in Fukuoka, Japan.

In the 200m freestyle final the previous day, Hwang won the bronze medal with a time of 1:44.42, 0.05 seconds faster than the South Korean record (1:44.47). Hwang, who won silver in the 200m freestyle at last year’s World Championships in Budapest, also reached a new milestone by becoming the first Korean swimmer to medal at two consecutive World Championships.

Hwang will now focus her efforts on her final individual event, the 100-meter freestyle. The 100 meters is scheduled for the semifinals at 8:26 p.m. and the final at 8:21 p.m. on the same day.

Compared to the 200m freestyle, which was a strong gold medal contender, the 100m freestyle is not a ‘medal’ event, so it’s a bit of an oddity.

“My world ranking in the 100m freestyle is ninth. As long as I make it to the final (of eight), I’ll be able to compete without any pressure, so I think I’ll have a good result,” he said, adding that he was looking forward to the challenge.

It’s not a direct comparison, but he was second in the first 100 meters of the 200-meter freestyle final, so a ‘surprise medal’ is not out of the question if he keeps his momentum going. For now, he is focused on pushing his own limits rather than medals.

Hwang holds the South Korean record of 47.56 seconds in the 100-meter freestyle. He broke the record in the semifinals of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, where fans were introduced to the star that is Hwang Sun-woo.

With his time, Hwang became the first Asian athlete to reach the final of the men’s 100-meter freestyle at an Olympic Games in 65 years, since Atsushi Dani (Japan) in Melbourne in 1956.

Hwang said, “It’s been two years since I haven’t beaten my best time in the 100 meters. I’m very eager to improve my time. 카지노사이트 A major competition is a great opportunity to break the record,” he said.

Fans’ sincerity, local governments and clubs change minds How Goyang Sono, a 10-team basketball team, was born

Fans and players of the Goyang Daywin Jumpers basketball team hold a press conference about the basketball team’s wage arrears at the National Assembly Communication Center in Yeouido, Seoul, on Thursday afternoon.

Sono, the 10th team in men’s professional basketball, has finally found a home in Goyang City, which was somewhat expected given the circumstances, but was only possible because of the fans who traveled everywhere.

Sono was approved as a new member at the Korean Basketball League’s (KBL) 29th Extraordinary General Assembly and Board of Directors on March 21.

The KBL’s approval gives Sono, which has been preparing to start a franchise as a condition of taking over the Goyang Day One team, which was disbanded due to the parent group’s management difficulties, further momentum. The plan is to hold an inauguration ceremony in mid-September before the start of the new season.

Sono’s hometown has been confirmed as Goyang City, where Day One was previously based. Sono has already negotiated with the city and will hold a signing ceremony soon.

“We chose Goyang because we prioritized the happiness of our athletes,” said Sono head coach Lee Ki-wan. “It also means that we want to revitalize Goyang Sonokam (a Sono-owned resort facility). I also suggested to the mayor of Goyang that we change the name of the gym to Sono.”

Goyang is a former home of Orion and Day One, so it has a well-developed basketball infrastructure and a strong fan base.

The players who switched from Day One to Sono also wanted Goyang City, and Goyang City was interested in hosting Sono, especially since there is a resort facility called Sonokam in the city.

However, the situation was complicated by the fact that several local governments, including Pohang City and Incheon City, which wanted to relocate Day One’s affiliation to Busan, were in the running for Sono.

In particular, Busan City entered the negotiations with strong financial support, and there were talks that Sono might leave Goyang City.

Sono Skygunners head coach Lee Ki-wan answers questions from reporters during a press conference for the Sono Skygunners at the KBL Center in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, on Monday.

Then, local basketball fans took action.

The group, which had been lobbying the local political system even before the disbandment of Day One to get the players to hold a press conference at the National Assembly, then went to Kim Jong-hyuk, chairman of the Goyang Party of the People’s Power, and appealed to him to “allow us to cheer for the players in Goyang City.”

In response, Kim traveled to the Goyang Chamber of Commerce and Goyang City to convince officials that the city should host a basketball team.

Goyang Mayor Lee Dong-hwan, who had seen Day One’s performance in the playoffs earlier this year, couldn’t turn a blind eye to the fans’ request and promised active support to Sono, eventually securing the team’s return.

The fans’ sincerity was enough to convince Goyang City to embrace Sono. It’s unclear what terms Goyang offered Sono, but it’s expected to include discounts on sports facilities and advertising.

“Until Day One was disbanded, there was no guarantee that Goyang would have a basketball team again, but dramatically, Sono announced its intention to buy the team and eventually settled here again,” said Goyang basketball fan Park Mo. “It’s a miracle for the fans who watched the whole process. It’s really exciting.”

The players are also happy to be back in their old stomping grounds.

Sono captain Kim Kang-sun said, “I’m grateful to be able to stay in Goyang City. “The atmosphere in the team is really good, and we will work hard and prepare to impress again,” said Kim.

Meanwhile, Goyang City is expected to appoint Sono ace and national shooter Jeon Sung-hyun, 32, as a city ambassador. 토토사이트 The plan is to utilize the Sono star and national team member to enhance the city’s image and raise its profile.

Only good at defense? Kim’s 20-20 challenge to break the stereotype

In his third year in the big leagues, Kim is hitting .270 with 14 homers, 37 RBIs and 18 doubles.
Hit .349 in the second half of the season

Ha-Sung Kim (San Diego Padres) is on pace for his best season yet.

Since joining the American Major League Baseball in 2021 from the KBO, Kim has been recognized more for his defense than his offense.

In his first season in the big leagues, he showed off his versatility by playing second and third base in addition to his primary position at shortstop. Last year, he was one of three finalists for the National League Gold Glove at shortstop, filling the void left by the departure of Fernando Tatis Jr.

This year, he’s moved to second base and continues to play solid defense. According to Baseball-Reference, Kim ranks first in the majors with a dWAR (defensive wins above replacement) of 2.1.
At the plate, however, he hasn’t gotten as much attention.

As he adjusted to a new league, Kim batted just .202 with eight home runs, 34 RBI, 27 runs scored, and six stolen bases in 2021. Last year, he hit .251 with 11 home runs, 59 RBI, 58 runs scored, and 12 stolen bases.

After an improved but unsatisfactory first season, Kim has taken another step forward this season.

Heading into the season, he was confident that his bat would be “better than last year,” and he’s proving it.

Through 25 games, Kim is batting .270 with 14 home runs, 37 RBIs, 53 runs scored and 18 stolen bases.

Against the Pittsburgh Pirates on May 25, he led off the game with a solo shot to left-center field and followed it up with another over the left-center field fence in the fifth inning. After hitting his 13th and 14th home runs of the season on the same day, Kim recorded his first multi-homer game since joining the big leagues.

His defense has been a staple, but now he’s coming into his own offensively.

In the second half of the season, Kim is batting .349 (15-for-43) with four home runs and six RBIs in 11 games. If you extend that to his last 30 games, he’s still hitting .327 (110-for-36) with nine home runs and 18 RBIs.

Having booked his career highs early, Kim is now within striking distance of becoming the first Asian infielder to reach 20 homers and 20 doubles. With 61 games left in the season, Kim needs just six more home runs and two more doubles to join the iconic 20-20 club.

Only outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (SSG Rangers, 2009-2010-2013) and pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels, 2021) are the only other Asian-born major leaguers to join the 20-20 club. If Kim achieves the feat, he will be the first Asian infielder to do so.

During his KBO career, Kim was an all-around infielder who could play offense, defense, and baseball. He hit 20 home runs and 20 doubles twice (2016-2020) and sent 30 balls over the fence in 2020.

Now, he’s back in the major leagues, and he’s hitting the ball hard. His offensive, defensive, 고스톱 and base-running abilities make his value shine even brighter.

Nana Boateng Jeonbuk Debut

“I want to adapt quickly and show my ability”.
