[Asian Games] Baduk National Team Brings Back Smiles… Shin Jin-seo “I’m Glad we can be Happy Together”
The 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games Go team has regained its vitality.
Korean baduk defeated China, the home nation, 4-1 in the men’s team finals of the tournament held at the China Baduk Center in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 3rd.
It was a must-win for the national team, which came to Hangzhou with the dream of sweeping three gold medals,
but only won a bronze medal in the men’s individual and a silver medal in the women’s team. 카지노사이트위키
After the game ended, the Chinese players, including Ke Jie 9th Dan,
passed the common coverage area (mixed zone) with a somber expression,
then the Korean players appeared with applause.
Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan, who lost to 9th dan Xu Hao-hong (Taiwan) in the men’s individual semifinals,
also seemed to have a lighter expression.
Shin Jin-seo brightly said, “Winning the individual competition may be more honorable,
but I think winning the team competition is better because we can share the joy in the team competition.”
He added, “There are regrets and joys, but I still feel relieved.”
In the final, which was a 5-on-5 simultaneous match, Shin Jin-seo was the first to announce victory by defeating 9th dan Yang Ding-xin (3rd in China) by 100 wins in 240 moves.
This was Shin Jin-seo’s 17th match in this competition since the individual exhibition schedule began on the 24th of last month.
It is a forced march that cannot be found in general mechanisms.
Shin Jin-seo looked back and said, “It’s a lot different from the regular world competitions,
so I’m disappointed in the content,” but added,
“Still, I’m satisfied that I was able to win without losing focus until the end.”
Shin Min-jun, 9th Dan, who was the only one left with military issues, smiled sheepishly and said
“I think I’m twice as happy as the other athletes who won the gold medal.
I had confidence in my teammates, so I expected the result.”
On this day, 9th Dan Byeon Sang-il, who recorded Korea’s only one loss against 9th Dan Lee Qincheng (ranked 16th in China),
received encouragement from his teammates and carefully said,
“I want to say thank you to my teammates.”
These are the first Asian Games Baduk medalists in 13 years.
This is because Baduk, which was first adopted at the 2010 Guangzhou Games,
was repeatedly excluded from the official games at the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta and Palembang Games.
