Wheelchair Track and Field Athlete Jeong Jong-dae Wins

Wheelchair track and field athlete Jeong Jong-dae wins gold medal at Hangzhou AG... Reminds me of my grandfather who passed away



Jeong Jong-dae (38, Busan Metropolitan City), the national wheelchair track and field representative, shook off the disappointment of the previous day and finally won his first Paralympic Asian Games gold medal.

Jeong Jong-dae was the first to cross the finish line with a time of 32.43 seconds in the men's T52 200m finals at the 2022 Hangzhou Para Asian Games held at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China, on the 25th. 카지노

Jong-Dae Jeong, who started from track 5, displayed overwhelming skills from the beginning of the race and easily beat Kurattanashiri Pichaya (Thailand, 33.69 seconds).

Jeong Jong-dae won the bronze medal in the 100m final held the previous day, trailing the second-place athlete by only 0.02 seconds, but regained his smile by winning the main event, the 200m.

After the race, he said, "Missing second place yesterday actually helped," and "I focused on not making mistakes in the main event, and I'm glad it led to a good result."

He also expressed his gratitude to his grandfather, who took care of him like a father when he was young.

Jeong Jong-dae played wheelchair rugby, but at the recommendation of his grandfather, he switched to track and field, which is less prone to injuries.

His grandfather, who had a special love for his grandson, left for heaven in 2014 when he was first selected as a representative of track and field.

Jeong Jong-dae also said, "I received a lot of encouraging phone calls after the game yesterday.

I especially want to say thank you to (Korea Disabled Athletics Federation) Chairman Park Heung-sik."

In addition, he said with a smile, "I have never won a gold medal in an international competition, so I really wanted to win this time."

He added, "The gold, silver, and bronze collection is now complete."

Jeong Jong-dae won the 200m bronze medal at the 2014 Incheon Games, the 200m silver medal, and the 100m bronze medal at the 2018 Indonesian Games.

Jeong Jong-dae aims for an additional medal in the 400m on the 27th.

He said, “I will empty my mind and be at ease.”
