HANGZHOU’S POOR MAN’S CHOI INHO “NEXT TIME, I’LL TAKE GOLD WITH MY OWN HAND’S”
Next time I get a chance, I’ll make gold with my own hands. “It’s only been ten days, but the “unlucky silver medalist” Choi In-ho (22, Nonsan City Hall) is laughing it off. If you had to name the “most unlucky” competitor at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, which concluded last week, Choi would be at the top of the list .Choi narrowly missed out on winning the 3,000-meter roller skating relay at the Asian Games on Feb. 2. South Korea was in first place until just before the finish line .But the last runner, Chung Chul-won (Andong City Hall), raised his arms in the air as he crossed the finish line .At that moment, Hwang Yi-lin of Chinese Taipei, who sprinted to the end, stuck out his left foot, and the gold medal went to the Chinese Taipei athletes.
Choi In-ho and Chung Chul-won lost their gold medals and the chance to receive special benefits for military service .After this event, roller skating track will be dropped from the Asian Games program .But when we met at the Naju Sports Park on Thursday, where the roller skating event of the 104th Jeonnam National Games will be held, Choi had already accepted the painful memories of Hangzhou as ‘memories’ When asked how he feels looking back on the situation, Choi smiles, “I still have some regret that I finished second instead of first, but I don’t have any ill will toward Chung,” he says. “We talked a lot during training, and we relied on each other a lot,” he said, emphasizing that “it’s not a relationship that will disappear just because of that one mistake. “Choi In-ho said he was grateful for the support.
He said, “I also think that I got second place because of my brothers. I rode hard until the end, and I thought that even if I didn’t do well, I would accept the result.” He laughed out loud, saying, “Chulwon is my brother, and I’m Mi-Pil, so I don’t think my brother would have done that on purpose, do you?” Choi In-ho said he will continue to challenge for Asian Games gold. At the 2026 Games in Aichi and Nagoya, there is a possibility that road and marathon events will be added to the program instead of roller skating track events .Choi has experience in these events .”If there is another ‘big game’, I want to participate and win, and if I get the chance, I will try to make a gold medal 카지노사이트 with my own hands,” Choi said. “If I don’t get the chance, that is also my fate.”
