Using the National Sports Festival as a stepping stone, they are taking a powerful leap forward with their sights set on the 2024 Paris Olympics to be held in July next year.

Hwang Sun-woo has had a breathtaking schedule recently.

Starting with the World Aquatics Championships held in Fukuoka, Japan last July, he competed in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games in September, and recently participated in the National Sports Festival.

Hwang Sun-woo left a meaningful mark in every comprehensive competition he participated in.

At the Fukuoka World Championships, he set a Korean record for the men's 200m freestyle (1 minute 44.42 seconds) and won a bronze medal, becoming the first Korean athlete to win two consecutive long course (50m) world championships.

In Hangzhou, he won a total of six medals, including two gold medals (200m freestyle, 800m men's relay), two silver medals (200m men's medley relay, 400m men's relay), and two bronze medals (100m freestyle, 400m mixed medley relay).

Even before his illness was over, Hwang Sun-woo participated in the National Sports Festival again and won two gold medals and won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for three consecutive years for the first time in history.

Although Hwang Sun-woo suffered from adverse events, including losing about 5 kg of weight due to food poisoning ahead of the opening, he swept the gold medal by displaying superhuman strength.

Hwang Sun-woo, who has participated in three all-around competitions in the past three months, continues to run without rest.

He will immediately participate in the national team selection event held next month, and compete against the world's best players at the World Championships to be held in Doha, Qatar, in February next year.

The World Championships are not the final destination either.

Hwang Sun-woo's ultimate goal is the Paris Olympics to be held in July next year.

He said, "I can't do high-intensity training right now because I've lost too much weight, but I'll start preparing for the national team selection in earnest starting next week.

I'm very tired due to the difficult schedule, but I'll focus on taking care of my body and do everything in my power to be able to smile at the Paris Olympics."

“I will pour it out,” he said.

High jump ace Woo Sang-hyuk also underwent sinusitis surgery early this year and has since competed in numerous competitions, including the Diamond League, Seiko Golden Grand Prix, National Team Selection, Budapest World Championships, and Hangzhou Asian Games.

Although preparations for this season were disrupted due to the aftermath of surgery, Woo Sang-hyuk achieved stable results in each competition.

At this year's National Sports Festival, he successfully won his fourth consecutive title with a score of 2m32.

Considering the chilly weather, wind, and tight schedule, the record of 2m32 is not bad.

He jumped 2m 27 at the Diamond League last May, 2m 29 at the World Championships, and exceeded 2m 33 at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Woo Sang-hyuk, who has been running non-stop, plans to control his physical condition by focusing on condition management rather than jump training for the time being.

The schedule for future competitions has not been confirmed.

He said, “I plan to discuss with coach Do-gyun Kim and establish a schedule for future appearances.”

In addition, the Paris Olympic medal candidates achieved meaningful results at this National Sports Festival.

Hangzhou triple gold medalist' Im Si-hyeon (Korea National Sport University) won the championship by defeating Ansan (Gwangju Women's University), triple gold medalist at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, in the final of the individual archery women's university division.

Proving that she is the undisputed Korean women's archery ace, Im Si-hyun begins her intense national team selection from square one after competing at the Asian Championships in November.

Major archery players such as Ansan and Kim Je-deok (Yecheon County Office) also follow the same schedule.
