Lee Woo-seok (Kolon) and Im Si-hyun (Korea National Sports University), who jointly won the gold medal in the archery mixed team event (mixed event) at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games on the 4th, share their experience of how their athletes' lives changed significantly due to the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19).

Lee Woo-seok won silver medals in the team event and individual event at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, where he participated at the age of 21, and received attention as the next-generation ace of Korean archery.

However, he did not participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. 카지노사이트

Lee Woo-seok passed the selection process held three times and was selected as one of eight men's national team members for 2020.

However, the competition was postponed for a year due to COVID-19 ahead of the 'evaluation match', which is a final selection match that will determine the three athletes who will participate in the Tokyo Olympics.

Lee Woo-seok ultimately did not go to Tokyo.

Participation in this Hangzhou competition was almost hindered by COVID-19.

Lee Woo-seok passed the selection and evaluation rounds in 2022 and was proudly selected as one of the four representative players for the Asian Games.

However, this time the competition was postponed due to COVID-19.

Lee Woo-seok was extremely shocked and even shed tears when the Tokyo Olympics were postponed, but when the Hangzhou Asian Games were postponed, he accepted it calmly, probably because he was used to such situations.

Lee Woo-seok, who has become stronger, finished second in the 2023 evaluation match and obtained a ticket to Hangzhou.

At the international all-around competition, which reached the 'three rounds in two rounds' after Jakarta, Lee Woo-seok proudly won a gold medal.

Lee Woo-seok will challenge for two gold medals in the men's team event, which will be held from the quarterfinals to the final on the 6th.

In the men's individual event, the bronze medal match is scheduled for the 7th.

Unlike Lee Woo-seok, Im Si-hyeon enjoyed the 'luck' of being given another opportunity to come to Hangzhou thanks to COVID-19.

Im Si-hyeon faced a difficult challenge in the 2022 national team evaluation match.

However, the competition was postponed for a year due to COVID-19, and the selection process for the 2023 national team started again from square one.

Im Si-hyun won the national team evaluation match held last April, beating prominent seniors and proudly earning the Taegeuk mark.

Riding his momentum, he continued to perform brilliantly on the international stage.

She won two gold medals at the 2nd World Cup held in Shanghai, China in May and the 3rd World Cup held in Medellin, Colombia in June, and she emerged as a new star for Korean women's archery.

Lee Woo-seok, who overcame the misfortune brought about by COVID-19 with his mental strength, and Im Si-hyun, who made use of the opportunity given by COVID-19 with his skills, shot the golden arrow together in Hangzhou.
