Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee lost to China's Sun Ying-sha and Wang Yidi (unranked) 1-3 (5-11 11-5 9-11) in the women's doubles semifinals on the last day of the tournament held at Pyeongchang Dome in Gangwon-do on the 10th.
The team of Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee, who won the 2021 Doha competition in which China did not participate due to quarantine issues due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), failed to win the competition for the second time in a row.
The Korean team finished the competition with one silver medal and four bronze medals.
Previously, one silver medal was won in the women's team event and one bronze medal was won in the men's team event.
The team of Lim Jong-hoon (Korea Exchange) and Shin Yu-bin won the mixed doubles, and the team of Lim Jong-hoon and Jang Woo-jin and Ahn Jae-hyun (Korea Exchange) and Park Kang-hyeon (Korea Water Resources Corporation) won the men's doubles.
We each won one bronze medal.
The national team had a somewhat disappointing performance at the home table, reaching the final only once and being 'annihilated' in the round of 16 of the men's and women's singles.
The Pyeongchang Asian Championships are a prelude to the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which opens on the 23rd.
Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee participated in the match with great enthusiasm, but were pushed back from the start by the sophisticated attacks of singles No. 1 Sun Ying-sha and No. 3 Wang Yidi.
In particular, Sun Ying-sha, who had lost to her rival Wang Man-yu in the women's singles final the previous day and had her pride dented, pounded the Korean table hard as if to vent her anger.
The team of Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee fell behind and were disappointed that they were unable to maintain their momentum in the third game where the score was evenly tied at 8-8.
In the semifinals held earlier, China's Wang Man-yu and Chen Meng (93rd) defeated Japan's Nagasaki Miyu and Kihara Miyu (8th) 3-2 (8-11 9-11 11-9 11-5 11-8). The women's doubles final was held as a match between the Chinese groups.
China secured 6 out of 7 gold medals in this competition.
Even in the men's singles, where the gold medalist has not yet been decided, China is highly likely to achieve a 'gold medal sweep' by advancing three players to the semifinals.
