Promise the highest courtesy and exercise patience Hanwha saves Ryu Hyun-jin’s pride

Ryu Hyun-jin smiles

“I couldn’t get a $10 million offer from MLB” Based on participation in posts from 12 years ago Hanwha continues to woo and deliver a contract at the end of January. Son Hyuk’s friendship also played a role.

The 2012 Professional Baseball All-Star Game was held at Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium on July 21, 2012.Western team starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin of Hanwha is coming down the mound after allowing no runs in the bottom of the second inning.

The KBO League’s home team, the Hanwha Eagles, saved the pride of ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36).

On the 22nd, Hanwha announced that it had signed an eight-year contract with Ryu Hyun-jin worth a total of 17 billion won.

The total amount of 17 billion won is the highest ever in Korean professional baseball, surpassing the previous record of 15.2 billion won for 4+2 years by Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who faced the cold reality in MLB’s Stove League, is grateful for the hospitality of his home team.

Several clubs, including the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates, were mentioned as destinations for Ryu Hyun-jin, who became a free agent (FA) in October of last year, but they were unable to reach an agreement.

If it had been a strategy to raise the price, there would have been no problem, but Ryu Hyun-jin said his pride was hurt by the poor evaluation of MLB clubs.

In particular, no team offered an annual average of $10 million, which was a psychological Maginot line.

An official on Ryu Hyun-jin’s side said, “This winter, we did not receive contract offers worth more than $10 million per year on average from major league clubs, and during this process, Ryu Hyun-jin considered returning to the KBO League.”

‘$10 million’ is also the minimum amount that Hanwha set when it posted Ryu Hyun-jin (private competitive bidding) in 2012.

At the time, Hanwha did not plan to allow the company to enter the U.S. unless there was a big league team offering more than $10 million.

However, MLB teams’ evaluation of Ryu Hyun-jin was beyond imagination.The Los Angeles Dodgers gave Hanwha 25,737,737 dollars and 33 cents, which ranks fourth in the major league posting system, and later signed a large six-year contract worth $36 million with Ryu Hyun-jin.

Twelve years have passed since then, and Ryu Hyun-jin may feel the passage of time.

It was impossible to avoid harsh evaluations from local American media.

Jim Bowden, a former MLB general manager, set Ryu Hyun-jin’s price at $8 million per year and advised, “Due to the risk of injury, we will have to accept a one-year contract.”

‘MLB Trade Rumors’, which specializes in transfer news, mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s strikeout rate (17.0%), number of innings (11 games, 52 innings), and average fastball speed (88.8 miles per hour) in the 2023 season, calling him a ‘5-inning pitcher’. “It seems difficult to receive more treatment,” he predicted. 토토사이트

Asian Cup Manchini ‘Leave Work Early’ After ‘Bit Hyun-woo’s Good Showing’… Top 8 Contributor

Cho Hyun-woo made two consecutive saves in the round of 16 penalty shootout against Saudi Arabia, filling in the gap of ‘No. 1 GK’ Kim Seung-gyu,

who left the national team due to injury, and gave a perfect score.

Spider Hand’ Cho Hyun-woo (Ulsan)’s brilliant penalty shoot-out save helped the Korean national soccer team,

led by Coach Jurgen Klinsmann, advance to the quarterfinals of the Asian Cup. 스포츠토토

In the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Round of 16 match against Saudi Arabia held at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar on the 31st (Korean time)

Jo Hyun-woo was tied 1-1 after 120 minutes of overtime,

and in the subsequent penalty shootout,

two of the opposing kickers were defeated.

He blocked the shot and led Korea to advance to the quarterfinals.

On this day, Korea gave up the first goal to Saudi Arabia’s Abdullah Radif shortly after the start of the second half,

but Cho Gyu-seong (Midtjylland) scored an equalizer with a header in extra time in the second half,

sending the game into overtime.

Even in overtime, both teams remained scoreless,

and the game eventually went to a penalty shootout.

In the penalty shootout that started with Saudi Arabia taking the lead,

Suspicion of failure to report or take action against sexual assault by coach at Nam Hyun-hee’s fencing academy

Jeon Cheong-jo, who said, “I plan to marry Nam Hyun-hee,” also seems to have been involved in running the academy.

Hyunhee Nam

Even though circumstances of sexual violence by a leader were revealed at an academy run by former national fencing team member Nam Hyun-hee, it was reported that it was not reported to the Sports Ethics Center or investigative agency in a timely manner.

According to reports from Yonhap News on the 26th, the police received a complaint from the victim in July, alleging that leader A, who worked at the Nam Hyunhee International Fencing Academy in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, had committed sexual violence, including sexual harassment, against two minor students for several months.

Person A

Is said to have made an extreme choice when allegations of sexual violence became public in the hospital in early July, a few days after the complaint was filed.

About three months later, on the 10th, a report with the same content was received by the Sports Ethics Center.

The center is conducting an investigation after receiving an additional report that Nam Hyun-hee, the head of a private academy, was aware of the problem but did not take sufficient action.

According to the center, it appears that Nam Hyun-hee did not report the sexual violence incident at the hospital to the relevant authorities in time.

According to Article 18-4 (2) of the National Sports Promotion Act,

coaches, athletes, and other ‘athlete management personnel’ specified by

Ordinance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism must

immediately notify the Sports Ethics Center or an investigative agency if

they are aware of any suspected violations of human rights or corruption in the sports field.

According to the Ordinance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and

Tourism, reporting obligations are imposed not only on leaders of sports

organizations under the Korea Sports Council but also on operators of private academies.

The center’s position is that it has not received any separate

communication about the issue of sexual violence from Nam Hyun-hee or the Fencing Academy.

Nam Hyun-hee

Was at the center of controversy when she revealed in a recent interview

with the monthly magazine Women’s Chosun that she was about to marry her ‘boyfriend‘ Jeon Cheong-jo.

Mr. Jeon

Who also participated in the interview, was introduced as a third-

generation chaebol, a horseback riding athlete who retired due to an injury, and a young businessman.

However, soon after the interview was made public, suspicions arose

against Mr. Jeon, including false gender, a criminal record for fraud, and

impersonation of a third-generation chaebol.

In fact, it was confirmed through a court ruling that Jeon, a ‘woman’ in the

past, committed habitual fraud by pretending to be a man or pretending to

be the CEO of a corporation out of wedlock.

When Nam Hyun-hee found out about his history and announced their

breakup, Mr. Jeon went to Nam Hyun-hee’s mother’s house and was

arrested by the police on charges of stalking on the 26th. He was released after investigation.

It is understood that Mr. Jeon was also significantly involved in the operation of the fencing academy.

In an interview with Women’s Chosun, Jeon also revealed, ‘I worked with

(Nam Hyun-hee) at the fencing academy, so I saw her often (recently).’

In relation to this, Nam Hyun-hee explained Mr. Jeon’s specific work at the

fencing academy, saying, “While I teach people who want to learn fencing

for their own reasons, Mr. Cheongjo does a business that deals with the

psychological education children need through arts and physical education.” 스포츠토토맨

Marathon world record 2-hour barrier ’36 seconds’ away after 3 full courses

Kipchoge breaks ‘2:35’ for first time at Chicago Marathon
Won by 34 seconds, beating the Kipchoge record, averaging 17.1 seconds over 100 meters
Raised goats in Kenya and coached ‘solo marathons’ “I eat, sleep and train”


Poses for a photo with a piece of paper that reads “World Record” in front

of an electronic clock that reads 2 hours, 00 minutes, 35 seconds.

That ‘someday’ came much sooner than Kelvin Kipyum (24-KENYA)

expected. Kipchoge won the 2023 Chicago Marathon in a world record

time of 2 hours, 00 minutes, 35 seconds on Monday. Kipchoge became the

first man in marathon history to break the 2:01 barrier. The previous

record was 2:01:09, set by Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge, 39, at the Berlin

Marathon last September. Kipchoge broke the record by 34 seconds.

Kipchoge, who won back-to-back Olympic titles in Rio de Janeiro in 2016

and Tokyo in 2021, ran 59:51 at last year’s Berlin Marathon. Kipchoge was

nearly a minute behind him at the Chicago Marathon that day, crossing the

line in 1:48, but Kipchoge eventually overtook him in the second half of

the race, running 59:47. Kipchoge crossed the finish line in style, waving to

his supporters and blowing kisses with both hands. On the day, Kipchoge

covered 42.195 kilometers in an average of 17.1 seconds for the 100 meters.

A native of Chepsamo

A rural town about 300 kilometers northwest of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, Kipchoge was a shy boy a decade ago, raising goats and sheep in his hometown. He began running behind runners who traveled to Kenya to train for marathons, but it wasn’t until 2019 that he got serious about training. Kipchoge was so embarrassed to compete on the same course as his idol that he opted not to run the Berlin Marathon on March 25, opting instead for the Chicago Marathon. “Records are meant to be broken,” said Kipchoge, who also won the Berlin Marathon this year. I hope Kipchoge breaks the record,” he encouraged.

For Kipchoge, the Chicago Marathon was his third full marathon. Kipchut made a name for himself last December at the Valencia Marathon, where he ran 2:01:53, the fastest time ever for a full-course debutant. It was also the fourth-fastest time of all time. At the London Marathon in April this year, he ran 2:01:25, 28 seconds faster than his personal best and the second fastest time behind Kipchoge. Now, Kipchoge has to go through the usual verification process with Athletics World Federation (WA) to become an ‘All-Time Number One’.

Kipchoge’s coach

Gervais Hakizimana (37-Rwanda), says: “Kipchoge eats, sleeps and trains. Whereas Kipchoge runs 180 to 220 kilometers every week, Kiptoom runs 250 to 280 kilometers. Sometimes he runs more than 300 kilometers,” says Kipchoge. “I’m worried about injuries, and when I tell him, ‘This could end your career in five years,’ he doesn’t listen. This time, he’s going to make me take a month off somehow.”

Sifan Hassan (30-Netherlands) topped the women’s field at the Chicago Marathon with a time of 2:13:44, the second-best time ever. The 2021 Tokyo Olympics 5000m and 10,000m winner, who “only runs,” ran the full course just a month and a half after winning bronze in the 1500m and silver in the 5000m at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest. 스포츠토토링크
