After winning the bronze medal in the women’s 200m individual medley final at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center swimming pool on the 25th,
Kim Seo-young said, “I was not satisfied with my condition in the preliminaries today,
so I had a lot of emotions,” and “If I run with confidence, it will be a good result.”
“I thought it would be there, so I pushed for it from the beginning,” he said.
Kim Seo-young, who won the gold medal in the women’s 200m individual medley at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games by setting a new Korean record of 2 minutes 08.34 seconds and a new competition record at the time,
was greatly shaken before and after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
She was hoping for a medal, but after failing to advance to the finals of the 200m individual medley at the Tokyo Olympics,
she fell into a long slump and rarely performed up to expectations.
The medal prospects for this competition were not very bright.
However, Seo-young Kim reached the podium for the second time in a row with a time of 2 minutes, 10.36 seconds.
Kim Seo-young said, “I think she won the medal five years ago because of her spirit,” she said.
“After that, it took a lot of effort.
I had a lot of worries, but I think this medal makes up for it,” she said, smiling brightly.
In addition, he said, “I was frustrated because my results were consistently poor this year,
even when I came to Hangzhou, my condition fluctuated, so I was not confident.
I even felt anxious, but after listening to the coach’s words before the game,
I played with confidence and was able to get a good result.” He said.
Regarding her challenge for three consecutive Asian Games medals,
Kim Seo-young said, “I thought this was the last time,” and “I will challenge more when I get the chance,
but for now, I will do my best in the remaining games.”
