Gold medals were won in the vault and double parallel bars in artistic gymnastics,
the 10m moving target team event in shooting, and the 49kg, 55kg, 59kg, and 64kg weightlifting classes,
all of the gold medals were won by female athletes.
On the 28th of last month, the female shooters won the gold medal, making up for the ‘reversal loss’ of the male athletes in the team competition a day earlier,
on the same day, artistic gymnastics’ Ahn Chang-ok won two gold medals with an overwhelming performance.
In weightlifting, which North Korea considers a ‘medal field’, Ri Seong-geum,
Kang Hyon-kyung, Kim Il-kyung, and Rim Un-sim rose to the top podium one after another,
setting new world records one after another despite having competed in international competitions for the first time in several years.
The same goes for the silver medal.
While female athletes won six awards in various sports, including artistic gymnastics, judo, shooting,
weightlifting, and table tennis, male athletes only won two medals each in shooting and weightlifting.
The strength of ‘women’s wind’ can also be seen in the currently ongoing events.
The women’s national team is showing good performances in popular sports such as boxing (Bang Cheol-mi, Won Eun-kyung),
soccer, basketball, and volleyball, which North Korea intensively supports.
Bang Cheol-mi (women’s 54kg class), who is so affectionate that North Korea’s Sports Minister Kim Il-guk,
who rarely has external schedules in Hangzhou, visited the stadium several times to cheer her on,
defeated an Uzbek player in the semifinals and reached the finals.
North Korea provides intensive support to female sports athletes at the national level.
There is a large athlete base in sports such as weightlifting, boxing, and soccer.
In a situation where they were unable to participate in international competitions due to COVID-19,
North Korea selected the ‘Top 10 Players of 2022’ based on their performance in domestic competitions last February,
the fact that as many as eight of them were female players proves this.
