Hwang Seon-woo, who challenges for two consecutive medals at the world championships, “will rise to the podium”

woo and other members of the Korean swimming team left for Fukuoka, Japan, where the world championships are being held.

Hwang Seon-woo, who is challenging for his second consecutive world championship medal, expressed his determination to reach the podium in his main event, the 200m freestyle.
The faces of our national team players showed up at Incheon International Airport to go to Fukuoka, Japan, where the World Aquatics Championships are being held.

Hwang Seon-woo, who won a silver medal in the men’s 200m freestyle at the World Championships last year, is aiming for the first medal in two consecutive competitions in Korean swimming history.

<Hwang Seon-woo / National swimmer> “My goal is to break my personal best records in both the 100m and 200m freestyle. I have the idea that I have to go on the podium (podium) unconditionally in the 200m.”

The strongest competitor is Romania’s Popovic, who was the gold medalist in the last tournament and is considered the strongest player in the current world.

Hwang Seon-woo, who holds the world No. 1 record in the 200m freestyle this year, is aiming to enter the 43rd world by surpassing his best record of 1:44:47 in this event.

<Hwang Seon-woo / National swimmer> “Now I’m in a position to catch up, so I think I can narrow the gap if I keep reducing my record without feeling pressured.”

Medals are also expected in the men’s 800m relay, in which Hwang Seon-woo, Kim Woo-min, Yang Jae-hoon and Lee Ho-jun will compete.

<Lee Jung-hoon / Head coach of the national swimming team> “I think it’s a problem because I’m too confident when I have meetings with the athletes. I think the relay team created a greater synergy effect while training together.”

The world championship management event, where our players are expected to perform well, will start on the 23rd.
