Bang Cheol-mi, the 'face' of North Korean boxing, won the gold medal in the women's 54kg class at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, avenging the pain from five years ago.

Bang Cheol-mi won a 3-2 decision over China's Chang Yuan in the women's 54kg boxing finals held at the Hangzhou Gymnasium in Zhejiang Province, China, on the afternoon of the 4th.

There were many judges who ruled in favor of Chang Yuan, 3-2.

However, in the second round, the judges gave a higher score to Bang Cheol-mi, with a total score of 49-45, as she maintained her distance and struck effective blows against Chang Yuan, who attempted a close fight.

The four judges gave Bang Cheol-mi 10 points, giving her the upper hand.

Bang Cheol-mi, who continued to throw punches in the fateful third round, took the lead with a total score of 49-46, and had the last laugh as the referee's decision was 4-1.

With this, Bang Cheol-mi washed away her regrets from the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.

The two athletes also faced each other in the women's 51kg class at a competition five years ago.

At that time, Chang Yuan won the decision 3-2.

However, Bang Cheol-mi, who thought she had a dominant performance, did not leave the ring even after the results were announced.

He sat down in the ring and took off his shoes.

The North Korean coach also entered the ring and protested strongly to the referee.

Even Indonesian police were dispatched.

When Bang Cheol-mi and her coach continued to protest in the ring despite the referee's restraint, the police came and took them out of the stadium.

Five years later, Bang Cheol-mi, who finally achieved revenge, expressed her joy by running straight to the coach in the corner when victory was declared.

Bang Cheol-mi also defeated Korea's Lim Ae-ji (Hwasun County Office) in the round of 16 of this tournament.

Bang Cheol-mi, a member of the Geumgangsan Sports Team, was the winner of the women's 51kg class at the 2019 Asian Championships, and she also topped the 'Republic Championships' in North Korea last year.

The expectations placed on her by the North Korean sports community are so high that she was selected as one of North Korea's 'Top 10 Best Athletes' in 2018, 2021, and 2022.

At the opening ceremony of this competition held on the 23rd of last month, she served as North Korea's flag bearer along with Park Myung-won of shooting.
