‘Six-time champion’ MVP Yoon Ji-won “I’m sorry for my colleagues”

Yoon Ji-won (16, 190 cm) led Samseonjung to a sixth title.

Samseonjoong won the 53rd Autumn National Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball Federation Game at Woosul Gymnasium in Haenam-gun, Jeollanam-do on Nov. 21.
South Central Final against Whimunjung, 76-59, at Woosul Gymnasium in Haenam-gun, Jeollanam-do, South Korea.

Samsunjung suffered a power leak ahead of the tournament as leading scorer Yoon Ji-hoon was called up to the U16 Asian Championships. 스포츠토토 But in the end, it didn’t matter.

Led by Yoon’s twin brother, Yoon Ji-won, every player on the court, including Song Young-hoon, Jung Woo-jin, Kim Jung-won, and Hwang Dong-hyun, played their part. This, coupled with the leadership of Coach Han Kyu-hyun, helped Samsunjung rise to the top of the South Central Region once again.

After winning the 2023 Spring League, the Association Championships, the National Youth Sports Championships, the National Championships, and the Weekend League Wangjungwang, Samseonjoong has now won the Autumn League, completing a remarkable feat of winning six titles in a season.

On the other hand, Huh Moon-joong, who finished as the runner-up in the last tournament, vowed to take revenge in the Fall League, but once again failed to overcome Samseon-joong’s barrier.

The Most Valuable Player was Yoon Ji-won, who averaged 19 points, 13.1 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.8 steals in seven games. Yoon Ji-won was especially strong on offense, leading the team in scoring from the qualifiers to the first game of the finals.

After the game, Yoon Ji-won said, “I didn’t expect to win, and it’s even better that we won together as a team. I hope my sophomore siblings will work hard next year and win many championships.”

As mentioned earlier, Yoon Ji-won was named the South Central MVP for his consistent performance from the start to the end of the tournament. However, in an interview with us, she was the first to admit that she felt sorry for her teammates.

“There were many of my teammates who performed better than me in every game. I feel very sorry for the other third-year players.”

One of the opponents Samseonjoong faced in the final was twin brothers Park Bum-yoon and Park Bum-jin. Their double post combination was seemingly unstoppable. Their combined size and attack radius was not limited to the painted area, making them very difficult to defend.

However, Yoon Ji-won taught them a lesson in the final, especially with her soft footwork, which allowed her to attack the basket and score in succession. On the other hand, the fierce twin brothers left a lot to be desired with their hasty finishing.

Yoon Ji-won said, “They are still one grade below me. I think I had the edge in experience, so it went well. I believe they will both do better next year,” Yoon praised the two players.

From the middle of the second quarter, Samsunjung showed a solid perimeter defense centered on Yoon Ji-won. The Whimunjung players were unable to get into the paint and relied on three-pointers, which have a relatively low success rate.

Yoon Ji-won said, “I think (Song) Young-hoon and I did a good job defending under the basket. Coach also emphasized the up-front defense by telling us to protect ourselves. I think my sophomore brothers did a good job with their quick feet on the outside.”

Due to the intense physicality, Yoon Ji-won was unable to stay on the court until the end of the game. She got into foul trouble early on and was eventually ejected for five fouls.

“I was worried because I got into foul trouble early, but the players on the court did a great job. I’m grateful to them.”

Lee ‘finally’ joins Hwang as he watches from the stands to reach the round of 16

Hwang Sun-hong has been waiting for Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) to join him.

Lee touched down in the Land of the Rising Sun at Hangzhou International Airport in China on the afternoon of June 21 to participate in the 카지노사이트 Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games.

He was escorted by a member of the Korean Football Association (KFA) staff to the city of Jinhua in Zhejiang province, where the national team is staying.

Lee made his return from injury the day before, playing 17 minutes as a substitute in the first leg of the group stage of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League against Dortmund (Germany).

As the competition is not organized by Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), his club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is not obliged to recall him to the national team. However, after lengthy discussions with the federation, he was recalled after the Dortmund game.

Upon arriving in Jinhua, Lee was fitted for his jersey and accompanied the team to the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium for their Group E match against Thailand.

Despite the long distance, jet lag, and difficulty adjusting to the environment, Lee’s determination to win gold at the Asian Games was evident.

The coaching staff kept Lee off the roster to make sure he didn’t overexert himself.

With a 9-0 win over Kuwait in the first round, there was no reason to overuse him in the group stage.

The last time Lee played for the Hwangsuns was in the U-23 Asian Cup quarterfinals against Japan last June.

As he grew into an A-team regular, he was called up by coach Paulo Bento and went on to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

It’s no wonder Hwang has been waiting anxiously for Lee to join the national team.

Five years ago, at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, Son Heung-min (Tottenham) spearheaded the Asian Games gold medal hunt, and it’s no exaggeration to say that Lee Kang-in holds the key to gold this time around.

Lee led South Korea to a runner-up finish at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup and won the Golden Ball, which is awarded to the tournament’s Most Valuable Player (MVP). He also helped South Korea reach the round of 16 at the Qatar World Cup, and this summer he joined French club PSG.

After arriving at Hangzhou Airport, he ditched his soccer cleats for sneakers and took to the field with a brief statement of intent: “I will do my best to get a result with my fans, my friends, and my friends who are younger than me.”

Before the game, he sat on the bench with Hwang and chatted for about 10 minutes, sharing his thoughts on the future, while keeping an eye on his teammates as they warmed up.

Lee Kang-in, who was left off the roster, sat in the stands. When fans recognized him and greeted him by name, he responded with his trademark shy smile.

After kickoff, he focused on the game, reacting to his teammates’ plays and cheering them on with applause. When a goal was scored, he high-fived the staff and celebrated, and began to integrate into the team.

With two points from the 4-0 win over Thailand, South Korea secured a spot in the round of 16 as the top team in Group E, regardless of the outcome of their final match against Bahrain on Thursday.

Lee Kang-in could take the field for the final match against Bahrain as a fitness check.

As the time together has increased, the scope of cooperation has also deepened. Last year, Ulsan and University Korea held a charity auction to support a welfare center.

“There is no satisfaction until you win a gold medal,” says Hwang Sun-hong, not smiling after ‘2G big win early round of 16’

Asian Games head coach Hwang Sun-hong has warned against complacency after his team booked an early berth in the round of 16 at the Asian Games.

The Asian Games soccer team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, defeated Thailand 4-0 with relay goals from Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent), Ahn Jae-joon (Bucheon), Uhm Won-sang (Ulsan) and Lee Jae-ik (Yiland) in the second match of Group E of the men’s soccer competition at 안전카지노사이트 Hangzhou Jinhua Stadium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, China, at 8:30 p.m. (KST) on Aug. 21.

After a 9-0 win over Kuwait on Sept. 19, South Korea used a stunning 13-goal outburst in their two games to win both matches and earn six points to top the group and advance to the Round of 16 early. After two games, the standings in Group E are Korea (6 points), Bahrain (2 points), Thailand (1 point), and Kuwait (1 point).

“Reaching the final tournament is something to celebrate, but we won’t be satisfied until we win the gold medal,” said Hwang. We need to maintain our performance in our next game to prepare for the round of 16 tournament.”

After the last match against Kuwait, Hwang said, “This is the first of seven shots. You have to play it as if it doesn’t exist and forget about it,” Hwang said, “I was a little unhappy today because we scored a lot of goals in the first half, but we didn’t have that in the second half. We need to play with tension for the whole 90 minutes.”

“We have a lot of new players,” Hwang said of his team’s plans for the third leg against Bahrain on Thursday, when the pressure is off. There are players who are finding their form and we haven’t trained together as a whole. Regarding the combinations, the first and second combinations should also prepare for the third game in terms of the player pool. We plan to use it as a time to check. We will use the third game to prepare for the round of 16 tournament.”

Ahead of the match, Hwang was seen chatting with Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who arrived in Hangzhou this afternoon and joined the team shortly after, on the bench side by side for more than 15 minutes. “The end goal is clear. I shared my opinion with Lee Kang-in about what we need. I have my own ideas, but the players also have their own ideas. It’s important to be on the same page with Lee Kang-in and other players. There were many points of contact. We need to get stronger through communication with our teammates and coaching staff.”

As for how Lee Kang-in will be utilized in the future, he said, “We need to check his physical condition. It’s too early to say if Lee Kang-in will play. We will make a choice based on many factors.” Lee is expected to check his condition as early as the Bahrain match.

San Diego’s Darvish contemplates out-of-season surgery for elbow injury

San Diego Padres Japanese starting pitcher Darvish Yu, 37, has been lost for the season with an elbow injury.Speaking to MLB.com and other local media ahead of the Padres’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA, on Wednesday (June 13), Darvish said, “After the injury, I dedicated myself to treatment and recovery, including receiving cortisone injections (to remove inflammation), but when I started playing catch recently, the pain in my elbow continued. At this point, we decided it was better to end the season early.””I am disappointed that the team did not perform well this season, and I feel responsible,” Daruvish added.Darvish was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) on March 29 with right elbow soreness after a poor outing against the Milwaukee Brewers on March 26 in which he allowed five runs in four innings.The elbow hasn’t gotten any better. Add to that the fact that his team, San Diego, is virtually eliminated from the postseason, and there’s no point in him returning.”Darvish plans to stay off the field for the next six weeks and focus on rehabilitation,” MLB.com reported, “and the decision to have surgery will be based on his progress.”Darvish already has a history of elbow surgery. In March 2015, he underwent elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery).He returned to the big leagues in May 2016 after a lengthy rehabilitation, and has since regained his form.If Darvish undergoes a second surgery later this year, he is expected to return for the 2025 season.That’s the worst-case scenario for his team, San Diego. The Dodgers signed Darvish to a six-year, $108 million extension in February.In his first year, Darvish went 8-10 with a 4.56 ERA in 24 appearances this year, and was lost to injury before the season was over.His quest to become the first Asian-American to win an MLB game was put on hold. With 103 wins (85 losses) so far this season, Darvish was on pace to break Chan Ho Park’s (retired) record for most wins by an Asian pitcher (124) in the next two to three years.However, the timing of the record challenge and breaking will be heavily influenced by his physical condition 안전놀이터 and whether or not he undergoes surgery in the future.

Korea Table Tennis Association ‘scores’ at tricky Hangzhou Asian Championships

Korean table tennis has been lucky enough to pick up a few ‘items’ at the Asian Table Tennis Championships in Pyeongchang, South Korea, that will come in handy for the upcoming Asian Games in 2023.

The Asian Championships, which kicked off on September 9 at the Pyeongchang Dome in Gangwon Province, is a big feast for Asian table tennis every two years.

Unlike previous years, this year’s tournament has taken on a different character as a ‘precursor to the Asian Games’.

The 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which were originally scheduled to be held last year, were delayed by one year due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and will open on March 23.

In the meantime, Korean athletes reportedly had difficulty adjusting to the table at the beginning of the Asian Championships.

A table made by China’s DHS was used as the official table for the tournament, but the bounce of the ping-pong ball was quite different from other tables.

According to the table tennis players, 바카라사이트 the ball tends to lose speed when it bounces and does not bounce well.

“The DHS table tends not to bounce well,” said Seo Hyo-won (36, Korea Horse Society), the ‘eldest sister’ of the national team. “Table tennis is a very delicate sport, and I couldn’t get used to it when I played my first game because the rotation was different.”

Seo and the rest of the national team quickly adapted to the DHS table.

However, the KTA also wanted to eliminate any small variables that could prove to be negative at the Asian Games.

As the Asian Championships progressed and the four tables in the center of the stadium became obsolete, the Table Tennis Association quickly contacted the Korean Sports Ministry.

At the request of the table tennis federation, the KTA agreed to purchase four used DHS tables and install them in the table tennis training center at the Jincheon Athletic Village.

The tables would be difficult to dispose of once the tournament was over. The sports organization reportedly purchased the DHS tables at a “reasonable price”.

Thanks to the quick administration of the table tennis association and the help of the sports ministry, the team had a chance to fully adapt to the DHS table in Jincheon before the Asian Games.

“As the DHS table is used in many international competitions, we decided to bring it to the athletes’ village and secure the table to improve the athletes’ adaptability,” said an official from the table tennis association. “We also considered the possibility that the DHS table could be used as an official table at the World Championships in Busan next year.” 슬롯

Qatar makes it two wins in a row in AFC U-23 Asian Cup qualifying…
