Korea sets Asian record in men’s 800m freestyle relay…first team gold in history

‘Hwang Sun-woo and the Golden Generation’ set an Asian record and gave Korean swimming its first ever team gold medal at an Asian Games.

The Korean men’s 800-meter freestyle relay team of Yang Jae-hoon (25-Gangwon Provincial Government), Lee Ho-joon (22-Daegu Metropolitan City), Kim Woo-min (22) and Hwang Sun-woo (20-Isangwon Provincial Government) were the first to touch the touchpad in 7:01.73 in the men’s 800-meter freestyle relay final at the Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 at the Hangzhou Olympic Center Swimming Pool in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on Friday.

The time of 7:01.73 is an Asian record, shaving 0.53 seconds off Japan’s record of 7:02.26 set at the 2009 World Championships in Rome, 14 years ago.

This was before regulations on the shape and material of the swimsuits that produced the record.

South Korea, which had previously won only four silver medals in the team event relay (women’s 400-meter freestyle relay in Beijing in 1990, men’s 800-meter freestyle relay in Hiroshima in 1994, men’s 400-meter medley relay in Guangzhou in 2010, and women’s 400-meter medley relay in Incheon in 2014), made history by winning gold in the men’s 800-meter freestyle relay in Hangzhou.

A new Asian record doubled the joy.

Hosts China (Wang Shun, New Guangsheng, Yang Haoyu, Fan Zhanle) were hoping to regain the top spot for the first time in 13 years since Guangzhou 2010, but finished second in 7:03.40, 1.67 seconds behind South Korea.

Despite fielding a strong team that included Fan Zhanle, who won the 100-meter freestyle the day before, Yang Haoyu, who finished second, and Wang Sun, 온라인카지노 who won gold in the 200-meter individual medley, the swimmers who have sparked a renaissance in Korean swimming were faster.

Japan finished third in 7:06.29.

Hwang Sun-woo, who had won bronze in the 100-meter freestyle the day before, struck gold for his second individual Asian Games medal, while Lee Ho-joon, Kim Woo-min and Yang Jae-hoon, as well as preliminaries Lee Yoo-yeon (Korea Gymnastics) and Kim Gun-woo (Dokdo Sports), also won their first Asian Games gold medals.

In the final, the first Korean runner, Yang Jae-hoon, finished the race in 1:46.83, just 0.87 seconds behind Wang Sun in 1:45.96.

After Yang’s smooth start, No. 2 Lee Ho-joon picked up the pace and passed the Chinese at the 300-meter mark. Lee clocked 1:45.36, 1.32 seconds faster than New Guangsheng (1:46.68).

South Korea widened the gap further as No. 3 Kim Woo-min clocked 1:44.50 to beat Yang Haowei (1:45.99).

The final Korean runner, Hwang Sun-woo (1:45.04), who entered the water 1.94 seconds ahead of China, held off the challenge of Pan Zhan-li (1:44.77) to reach the finish line where his teammates were waiting.

His teammates, including Kim Woo-min, who had been shouting “hurry up,” roared as he touched the touchpad.

Hwang, Lee, and the rest of the Korean men’s 800-meter freestyle relay team said, “All four members of the relay did so well in training that I thought, ‘Is this a Korean record?’ We’ve been training really hard,” said Hwang, adding, “In the 800-meter freestyle relay, we’re not only trying to break the Korean record (7:04.07) but also the Asian record.”

Armed with grueling training and trust in their teammates, the Korean relay team achieved both goals in the actual competition: an Asian record and a gold medal. 슬롯

Oh Sang-wook stops Goo Bon-gil’s 4-game losing streak, “I’m nervous about losing five years ago”

Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall), who won gold in the men’s sabre individual competition at the Asian Games after defeating the reigning champion Koo Bon-gil (Korea National Sports Promotion Organization), admitted that he was nervous in the final moments of the match as he remembered his “one-point defeat” five years ago.

“I remember losing in the final at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, so I was very nervous,” Oh said at a press conference after winning the men’s individual sabre event at the Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 at the Hangzhou University of Electronic Science and Technology Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China, on Friday. “I’m glad I was able to control my game in the second half.”

Oh Sang-wook, the silver medalist in the individual event at the Jakarta Games, defeated Goo Bon-gil 15-7 in the final to win his first individual gold medal at the Asian Games.

Oh, who also reached the final five years ago in his Asian Games debut, but had to settle for runner-up honors after failing to overcome the senior Koo’s dominance at the time, won the ‘final return match’ in style to end Koo’s bid for a fourth straight individual title.

“I didn’t focus on records like (Koo’s) four straight losses. “I was relaxed because it was a Korean final and we had secured 1-2,” he said, adding, “I just wanted to win in this situation and win the gold medal rather than thinking about the last Asian Games.

For Oh, the gold medal in the individual event was even more meaningful as he was rushing to rehabilitate after undergoing surgery for an ankle injury last November.

“I didn’t have much time to recover from my injury,” he said, “but my teammates told me, ‘You’re good, you can do it,’ so I was able to find my confidence,” he added.

“It was a good opportunity to measure my ‘combat power’ ahead of the Paris Olympics, which is less than a year away,” he said, adding, “I was very nervous, but I don’t have many opportunities to play in such an environment, so I am more honored to win the gold medal.” 스포츠토토

‘Golden day’ on opening day as swimming’s Hwang Sun-woo adds five more golds

South Korean athletes cruised to five gold medals on the opening day of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games as they continued to dominate the early medal race.

The Koreans picked up golds in taekwondo, shooting and fencing, were strong in martial arts and bayoneting, and added two golds in swimming in the evening to take their tally to 10 after the opening two days.

First, the South Korean men’s 800-meter freestyle relay team of Yang Jae-hoon (Gangwon Provincial Office), Lee Ho-joon (Daegu City Hall), Kim Woo-min and Hwang Sun-woo (both Gangwon Provincial Office) finished the final in an Asian record time of 7:01.73 at the Olympic Center Pool in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, on Friday.

South Korea, which had previously won four silver medals in the team event, made history by winning gold in the relay for the first time at an Asian Games.

China’s team of Fan Zhanle, Wang Shun, New Guangsheng and Yang Haoyu finished second in 7:03.40.

After winning bronze in the 100-meter freestyle the previous day, Hwang Sun-woo (Korea Gymnastics Federation) won his second Asian Games medal in gold, while qualifiers Lee Yoo-yeon (Korea Gymnastics Federation) and Kim Gun-woo (Dokdo Sports Organization) also won gold.

Earlier in the day, Ji Yoo-chan (Daegu City Hall) won the men’s 50-meter freestyle in 21.72 seconds, becoming the first South Korean to win gold in this event in 21 years.

It was the first gold medal in the men’s 50-meter freestyle at an Asian Games for a South Korean athlete since Kim Min-seok at Busan 2002.

Ho Ian Yan-tou (HKR) finished second in 21.87, while Fan Zhan-liu, the 100-meter freestyle winner the previous day, took bronze in 21.92.

In taekwondo, Jang Jun (Korea Gas Corp.) won the men’s 58-kilogram final, defeating Mahmi Hajimosaeinapoti (Iran) by a round score of 2-0.

Following the gold medals won by Kang Wan-jin (Hongcheoncheong) and Cha Ye-eun (Kyung Hee University) in the Poomsae event on the first day of competition, the taekwondo dominance continued on the second day.

Jang Jun, the bronze medalist at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, won his first Asian Games title and showed why he is one of the world’s best in his weight class.

In shooting, the men’s 10-meter running target team of Jung Jeong-jin (Cheongju City Hall), Ha Kwang-cheol (Busan City Hall), and Kwak Yong-bin (Chungnam Sports Association) won gold with 1,668 points.

The Koreans had the same total score as North Korea, but won the 10-meter event with a 39-29 advantage in hits in the center of the 10-meter mark.

This is the first time South Korea has ever won gold in the 10-meter running target team event at an Asian Games.

In fencing, Korean athletes dominated the finals for the second day in a row.

The previous day, Choi In-jung and Song Sera met in the women’s epee final, with Choi winning gold, and today, Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon City Hall) and Goo Bon-gil (Korea Sports Promotion Organization) met in the men’s sabre final, with Oh winning gold and Goo sharing silver.

The pair met in the final at the previous Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, where Koo won 15-14 to claim his third consecutive Asian Games individual title, but this time Oh took the top spot on the podium.

In sailing, one gold medal was ‘booked’.

Competing in the men’s windsurfing RS:X class at the Ningbo Xiangshan Sailing Center, Cho Won-woo (Haeundae City Hall) had a penalty score of 13 after the 12th race, clinching the gold medal without the need for a result on the 26th.

Wonwoo Cho will take home the gold medal even if he does not compete on the 26th. However, the gold medal will be awarded to Cho at a ceremony after the 26th race.

In judo, Lee Jun-hwan (Yongin University) made it to the final in the men’s 81-kilogram category, but lost to Somon Makhmedbekov (Tajikistan) by half a thigh reverse.

For the second day in a row, a silver medal came from judo, following Lee Hae-rim (KOR) in the men’s 60kg category the day before.

In the semifinals of the table tennis team event, the Korean men’s and women’s teams had mixed fortunes.

The men defeated Iran 3-0 to reach the final, their 10th consecutive Asian Games team event final since Seoul 1986, and will face ‘Great Wall’ China in the final on Saturday.

The women’s team, on the other hand, lost 1-3 to Japan in the quarterfinals, marking their first appearance in an Asian Games team final in 33 years since their silver medal in Beijing in 1990.

In women’s soccer, Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC) reached the milestone of 150 A-match appearances and Son Hwa-yeon (Hyundai Steel) scored a hat-trick as South Korea beat the Philippines 5-1 for their second straight win and a spot in the quarterfinals.

North Korea, which had won one bronze medal the previous day, won silver in the women’s 70-kilogram judo and men’s 10-meter running target team events and complemented its bronze in the women’s gymnastics team event.

South Korea is second in the medal standings with 10 gold, 10 silver and 13 bronze medals through 25 days of competition.

China leads the way with 39 gold medals, followed by Japan with five golds, 14 silvers and 12 bronzes.

North Korea is 13th with two silver and two bronze medals. 파워볼분석

Koo Bon-gil stops short of fourth straight win “I’ll aim for Korea’s biggest gold in Nagoya”

After missing out on a fourth consecutive Asian Games fencing title in the men’s sabre individual event by a single shot, Koo Bon-gil (Korea Sports Promotion Organization) showed more “emotion” as he congratulated his junior Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall) for beating him to the title.

After the men’s sabre individual final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Hangzhou University of Electronic Science and Technology Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China, on Friday, Koo said, “I’m not disappointed that I didn’t win four consecutive titles because it wasn’t as easy as it sounds. I’m just as happy that Oh Sang-wook won the gold medal as I am that he won four in a row.”

Koo Bon-gil, who won the men’s individual sabre title at the 2010 Guangzhou, 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, attempted to win his fourth consecutive gold medal at the event.

Coincidentally, he met his final opponent from Jakarta, Oh Sang-wook, in the final again this year, but after winning his third straight title with a one-point victory five years ago, Koo lost 7-15 to the younger Korean.

“Before the match, we were ‘fighting’ to have a nice, hard, and good-natured competition,” said Koo, who blamed his loss on the fact that “I became very urgent in the second half, and Sang-wook had no time to spare.”

“When we met in the final in Jakarta, I felt uncomfortable even though I won because of Sang-wook’s military service, but today’s silver medal is better than the gold,” he said, “I’m happy that I played my best and had no regrets.”

“Sang-wook came back from an injury (ankle ligament surgery in November last year), and I think he’s back to where he was before the injury,” he said, adding, “I think he’ll be fine for the Paris Olympics next year.”

He was the flag bearer for the Korean team at the opening ceremony of the Games and was considered by the organizers to be one of the most exciting athletes to watch in fencing, and although he lost in the final, he was still one of the best in Asia.

In the quarterfinals, he came from behind to win 10-14 on a dubious decision against a Chinese fencer with the support of his home fans, and in the semifinals against Yousif Al-Shamlan (Kuwait), he overcame an early 1-5 deficit to reach the final.

“It was an honor in itself to challenge for four consecutive titles and I want to give myself a pat on the back,” said Koo, adding, “I will do my best to win gold in the team event (on Aug. 28).”

When asked if he dreams of facing Oh Sang-wook at the Paris Olympics, he smiled and said, “That’s just wishful thinking.”

However, Koo did not hide his desire to win the record for the most gold medals by a Korean athlete at a Summer Asian Games.

The record for most gold medals won by a South Korean athlete at an Asian Games is currently six, held by Park Tae-hwan in swimming and Nam Hyun-hee in fencing.

Koo Bon-gil, who has five gold medals, could move into sole possession of first place if he wins two gold medals at the Games, first in the individual events and then in the team events. He needs to make it seven, which is not enough.

“I told my teammates that if I don’t win gold this time, I will go to the Nagoya Asian Games (in 2026). Even if I can’t win the individual title, I will try my best to win the team title and write my name in history,” he said. 토토사이트

‘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.

Ulsan signs ‘sponsorship agreement’ with Unicity Korea… 10 years in the making

Ulsan Hyundai (Ulsan) and University Korea held a sponsorship agreement ceremony at the Hana OneQ K League 1 30th Round home game against 현금홀덤사이트 Hana Citizen at Munsu Soccer Stadium on April 16.

This marks the 10th anniversary of the partnership, which began in 2014. Over the past 10 years, University Korea has sponsored various products such as ‘Bios Life E Energy’ to improve players’ performance and ‘Enjubinate’ to provide animal and vegetable proteins, in addition to donations for the club’s development.

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. The proceeds from the auction of autographed balls by Ulsan head coach Hong Myung-bo, Lee Cheong-yong and Seol-young, and Ulsan playing coach Park Joo-young’s AFC Champions League (ACL) jersey were used to renovate the accommodation of the Dongmyeong Child Welfare Center for war orphans. This year’s signing ceremony was held at a stadium for the first time in four years after COVID-19. More than 100 members from Ulsan and Gyeongnam regions attended, adding meaning to the event.

Jong-hyun Kim, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Uniqity Korea, said, “Ulsan is the oldest club with Uniqity Korea. They have shared glorious moments with us, such as winning the 2020 ACL and winning the K League title last year after 17 years. We will continue to support Ulsan as they write the history of Korean professional soccer.”

Kim Kwang-guk, CEO of Ulsan, said, “Unity Korea is one of our oldest partners (outside of the group). It is a reliable sponsor that has been communicating deeply with us for a long time. We consider our relationship to be more than a mutually beneficial one, and we will continue to work together.”

“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.
