Woo Sang-hyuk, Korea’s First Diamond Final Winner

‘Korea’s First Diamond Final Winner’ Woo Sang-hyuk “A Moment I’ve Dreamed of my Whole Life”




On the 17th, at the Diamond League Final, he surpassed 2m35 and made ‘new history’ in Korean athletics.

‘Smile Jumper’ Woo Sang-hyuk (27, Yongin City Hall) smiled brightly while holding the diamond-shaped trophy.

There have already been several new milestones in Korean athletics, including 4th place at the Tokyo Olympics (2m 35), victory at the 2022 World Indoor Championships (2m 34), victory in the Diamond League individual competition (2m 33 at the 2022 Doha Games), and 2nd place at the 2022 World Championships (2m 35).

A brilliant line has been added to Seun Woo Sang-hyuk’s resume: ‘Win the Diamond League Finals.’ 카지노사이트탑

The Diamond League Final is a competition that track and field athletes consider to be the second most important event after the Olympics and World Championships.

Woo Sang-hyuk became the first Korean player to advance to the Diamond League Finals and even won the championship trophy.

On this day, Woo Sang-hyuk cleared 2m 15, 2m 20, 2m 25, 2m 29, and 2m 33 all in the first period.

Norbert Kowielski (26, Poland) and Juvon Harrison (24, USA) also exceeded 2m33, but the only jumper that exceeded 2m35 was Woo Sang-hyuk.

Sanghyuk Woo confirmed his victory by exceeding 2m35 in the third period.

He said, "I prepared really hard for this competition.

To win, you have to be lucky, and today everything came together."

He added, "I only placed 6th (2m29) at the World Championships in Budapest last August, but I am confident that 'there are many competitions left'. “I comforted him.

Once I got rid of the obsession, my records got better,” he explained the ‘secret to winning.’

National team coach Kim Do-gyun, who Woo Sang-hyuk calls his 'benefactor', said, "I tried to quickly shake off my disappointment at the Budapest World Championships," and added, "I placed third (2m31) in the Zurich Diamond League (September 1), but my performance was good.

I felt pressure.

After getting out of the game, I thought, “I played the best game of the season today.”

In fact, this year, Woo Sang-hyuk struggled with injuries at the beginning of the season, including heel pain and sinusitis surgery.

However, Woo Sang-hyuk was not frustrated.

Woo Sang-hyuk said, "On the day of the Budapest World Championships, I was only disappointed for one day.

I achieved my goal of winning the finals.

“Now, I will work harder to win the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games,” he pledged.

Mutaz Essa Barsim (Qatar), the ‘best active jumper’, did not participate in this Diamond League Final.

Woo Sang-hyuk said, “If Barshim participates, we can have a more interesting game.”

He added, “The Diamond League Final is not the last game of the season.

On this day, Woo Sang-hyuk virtually secured the right to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Woo Sang-hyuk passed the Paris Olympic standard record early on.

Woo Sang-hyuk said, "After passing the Paris Olympic standard record of 2m33, coach Kim Do-gyun said, 'You can run more comfortably now.

Do the game you want and come back.'"

He added, "Now that I have passed the Paris Olympic standard record, the burden has been relieved, so I can easily run 2m35 as well."

“I was able to overcome it,” he recalled.

The Diamond League Finals will be held until the 18th.

After all games are over, the top performers from each event gather together and perform the ‘Champion Ceremony.’

Woo Sang-hyuk said, "A scene that I could only imagine will unfold tomorrow.

This is how I am rewarded for my long efforts."

He added, "I want to enjoy this kind of joy at the Hangzhou Asian Games and the Paris Olympics.

I am grateful to the people who supported me.

“I will do my best to win,” he said.
