Club Legend Joo Jae-hoon Hits the Silver Bullet

My Main Job is as a Police Officer, But Archery is my Hobby... ‘Club Legend’ Joo Jae-hoon Hits the Silver Bullet

Hangzhou Asian Games compound mixed event silver medal by 1 point

In Korean archery, Joo Jae-hoon (31, right) is a ‘special player’.

He is not a professional archer.

He wore the Taegeuk symbol with the skills he honed as a hobby at the archery club.

Archery is a sport in which it is more difficult to be selected for the national team than to win a gold medal at the Olympics. 카지노사이트

He became a national representative eight years after putting aside his main job and taking up the bow in a place where it is not uncommon to swallow the tears of being eliminated even after taking an elite course.

Joo Jae-hoon, a police officer from Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power's Information Security Department, even worked on the international stage.

Joo Jae-hoon teamed up with So Chae-won (26, left) for a silver medal in the compound archery mixed competition held at the archery range at the Fuyang Inhu Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 4th.

This is the silver medal won after a close match (158-159) by one point against India's Oyas Praveen Deotale and Jyoti Surekha Bennam in the final.

Unlike recurve, a specific archery event, compound is not held at the Olympics, so the Asian Games are considered a 'big stage'.

Joo Jae-hoon, who said, “It was an honor just to start as a club member and step onto the Asian Games stage,” completed the ‘club club legend’ by winning the medal he was aiming for.

Joo Jae-hoon, who is on unpaid leave to participate in this competition, was asked by a reporter what he would choose between a promotion and a silver medal.

He responded, “It’s really hard to choose,” and “(Still) a silver medal.”

To the question, ‘Isn’t this a medal in exchange for a year’s salary?’, he said, “I have absolutely no regrets.”

Of course, I think my wife will think differently,” he said with a smile.

Joo Jae-hoon, who started archery about 10 years later than others, picked up a bow for the first time through an archery club near his university in 2016 after he was discharged from the military.

As soon as he entered the sport, he swept the trophy in every club competition he entered, showing his extraordinary talent.

Even after he got a job as a police officer, he did not neglect archery.

In his personal time, he borrowed an acquaintance's barn to practice, and since he did not have a teacher, he studied breathing and routines by watching YouTube.

Joo Jae-hoon, who had repeatedly attempted and been eliminated for the Taegeuk mark, put down his job for a while last year and prepared for the national team selection competition once again.

He faced the misfortune of being tested positive for COVID-19, but was given another opportunity as the Asian Games were postponed for a year, and after '4 out of 5', he placed 4th in the men's division in this year's selection competition and was selected to join the national team.

Thanks to Joo Jae-hoon's performance, Korean archery won a silver medal in this event for the second time in a row, following the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, when mixed competition was first introduced.

Joo Jae-hoon once again aims for the 'golden target' in the men's team event.

He is also in the bronze medal match in the men's individual event.

On this day, Joo Jae-hoon and So Chae-won, who were led by one point to India due to a mistake with their first shot in the first end, hit all four shots for 10 points in the third end to tie the score at 119-119.

In the 4th end, India cleared the 10-point target, while Korea lost the gold medal by 1 point when So Chae-won hit a 9-pointer.
