Manager Lee Seung-hoon met with a joint press team at the Huanglong Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 24th, while the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Para Games were in progress, and said, "Introduction and information on sports for the disabled must be included in school textbooks and curriculum to raise the level of awareness among non-disabled people about disabled people and sports for the disabled."

“This could increase,” he said.

Working as an APC employee since 2019, he visited Hangzhou to run and support the Hangzhou Asian Para Games.

He oversees the internal affairs of the stadium, including game preparation and operation, and stadium settings, and also serves as an award presenter.

Manager Seunghoon Lee majored in sports science and physical education in Korea.

He said, "When I was a college student, teaching sports to people with intellectual disabilities was the opportunity to decide on my career path. I decided to enter the sports field for the disabled in order to improve awareness of the disabled and improve the quality of life for the disabled in various fields, not just sports."

“I did,” he said.

Manager Lee Seung-hoon, who completed a master's degree in sports for the disabled in Belgium in 2009, entered the field in earnest starting with the 2014 Incheon Asian Para Games.

Afterwards, he worked for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic and Paralympic Organizing Committee and has been working at APC in Dubai since 2019.

Manager Lee Seung-hoon's wife is Go Ki-hyeon, a gold medalist in the 1,500m short track speed track at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.

He said, “With the establishment of the Korea Sports Association for the Disabled, facilities, systems, and infrastructure have been greatly improved, and Korea’s international influence has also increased,” adding, “The national team is selected according to fair standards, but it is desirable for many young athletes to naturally emerge in all sports.”

He also presented challenges to Korea's disabled sports.

Manager Lee Seung-hoon added, “APC is also heavily operating the Asian Disabled Youth Games to discover and bring out young disabled athletes.”

In fact, the Asian Disabled Youth Games is one of the major events hosted by APC along with the Asian Para Games.

About 20 organizations and institutions around the world, including the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the International Association of Persons with Disabilities (IDA), the United Nations Alliance for Civilizations (UNAOC), and UNESCO, are carrying out the '#WeThe15' campaign to improve disability awareness starting from the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

This means that 15% of the world's population is currently or potentially disabled.

Park Hye-eun, head of public relations at the Sports Association for the Disabled, said, "15% of education should be devoted to the disabled. Sports for the disabled should be naturally known to the curriculum, sports field, and physical education majors so that disabled and non-disabled people can live together without feeling repulsed or prejudiced against each other."

“There is,” he said.
