“I will definitely win a gold medal at the Paris Olympics by improving my defensive skills and improving my stamina.”

The matchup on this day showed a similar pattern in the beginning.
Taejun Park lost the first round of the first game.
However, Taejun Park did not give up and took the second and third rounds.
In the second game, after dropping the first round, he won the second and third rounds to secure a ticket to Paris.
Park Tae-jun said, “I gained great courage last year when I saw badminton Ahn Se-young defeat Chen Yu-fei (China),
who was called her natural enemy.”
Ahn Se-young was behind Chen Yu-fei with 1 win and 8 losses, but last year,
she met 8 times and won 6 times, becoming the world’s strongest player.
Taejun Park, who has overcome his natural enemies, now looks at Paris.
He said, “I will protect the pride of the suzerain nation.”
