The pair of Jang Woo-jin and Lim Jong-hoon lost 0-4 (6-11 8-11 7-11 3-) to China’s Pan Zhendong and Wang Chuqin (second place) in the table tennis men’s doubles semifinals at the tournament held at the Gungsu Canal Sports Park Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China on the 1st. 11 and was completely defeated.
As a result, Korean table tennis aimed to win the men’s doubles gold medal at the Asian Games 21 years
after the 2002 Busan Games won by the team of Lee Cheol-seung and Yoo Seung-min,
but failed to achieve the goal.
The pair of Woojin Jang and Jonghoon Lim, who reached the finals twice in a row at the 2021 World Championships in Houston and the 2013 World Championships in Durban,
but both ended in silver medals, remained in runners-up this time, continuing the major tournament finals jinx.
Jang Woo-jin and Lim Jong-hoon postponed winning their first gold medal in an international all-around competition until the next opportunity.
Jang Woo-jin will make his final challenge for the gold medal in the men’s singles,
which runs from the semifinals to the finals on the 2nd.
The group of Pan Zhendong and Wang Chuqin is one step lower in the doubles ranking than the group of Jang Woojin and Lim Jonghun,
but they are the strongest players, ranked 1st and 2nd in the singles ranking.
Jang Woo-jin and Lim Jong-hoon’s singles rankings are 13th and 17th, respectively.
Chinese table tennis ‘next-generation ace’ Wang Chuqin, who won the men’s team event and the mixed doubles event with Sun Yingsha,
also won a gold medal in the men’s doubles event, making it three gold medals.
If Wang Chuqin ends the semifinals tournament, which will be held on the 2nd,
with two consecutive wins, he will become the fourth champion of the tournament.
With Chinese fans filling the 6,900 spectators’ stands cheering “Cheer up!”,
the team of Woojin Jang and Jong-hoon Lim participated with great enthusiasm,
but were unable to overcome the objective gap in skill.
In the 2nd and 3rd games, the match was almost even until the end,
but it was always the Chinese side that showed ‘hindsight’ to gain game points.
