He lost the sadness of the previous competition with a “gold smash.”
The Korean women’s badminton team, led by head coach Kim Hak-kyun, won the gold medal in the final of the women’s badminton team at the Hangzhou Asian Games against China at Binjiang Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 1st.
It was a perfect victory medley. Lee So-hee, Baek Ha-na, and Kim Ga-eun, led by “Ace” Ahn Se-young, who played in the one-game singles, delivered the victory in succession. It was an overwhelming victory without losing a single set during the three games.
As soon as Kim Ga-eun’s game points were made, all the players below the coaching staff raised their arms and were delighted. South Korea’s shuttlecock, who suffered the humiliation of “no medal” at the Asian Games for the first time in 40 years at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, will be sad with a good start to the tournament. 스포츠토토
Ahn Se-young, who attended an official press conference after the award ceremony, said, “The coach, coaches, and sisters had faith, so we produced the results,” adding, “Thanks to this, I was able to grow up so well and repay the results.” “It was helpful that I trusted myself by making that much effort,” he said, expressing his joy. “The moment I confirmed the victory, everyone ran out and cried,” he said, reflecting on the moment of victory.
Team is also a team, but it is a meaningful medal for me personally. Having experienced his first Asian Games as a high school student in the last tournament, he was immediately eliminated in the first singles match of the individual event. The opponent at that time was Chen Yu-fei, the Chinese vanguard he beat on that day. After five years, he succeeded in a thrilling revenge.
This year, she took steps that no one could catch up with, including winning the All-English Open, winning the World Championship, and becoming the world No. 1 in women’s singles. He did not hide his greed for a higher place before the tournament, professing that he would “challenge the Grand Slam by winning the Olympics, Asian Games, and Asian Championships that he has not experienced yet.”
I took the first step. Ahn Se-young said, “I achieved one of my goals to become a Grand Slam. “I’m filled with confidence,” he said, without hiding his satisfaction. “In fact, I had a lot of worries before the competition. There was also a pressure to protect it. But she solved it with this gold medal. To explain how I feel now in one word, I think “relief” is just right.
Finally, he said, “There was support from Chinese home fans, but the support from Korean fans was stronger. I was able to do better thanks to the Korean players’ names being called in the middle, he said, adding, “Please pay a lot of attention and support to the remaining individual events.”
The women’s singles event, which Ahn Se-young will participate in, will begin with the round of 64 tournaments on the 2nd, the next day. Following this momentum, Ahn Se-young will challenge for two gold medals with team and individual competitions.
