The Taekwondo national team is determined to achieve the unified men’s and women’s championship at the World Championships, which they missed in the last competition.
The national team pledged to promote at the 2023 World Taekwondo Federation (WT) World Championships Final Ceremony held today (16th) at the Jincheon National Training Center in Chungcheongbuk-do.
National team coach Jeong Eul-jin said, “Korea failed to achieve its goal last year as the women’s national team players performed below expectations. It is먹튀검증.
Korea tried to win the men’s and women’s overall championship three times in a row at last year’s competition, but failed to achieve its goal.
The men’s division won the overall championship (two gold medals, one silver medal, and one bronze medal), but the women’s division finished 11th overall (one silver medal).
It was the first time in the 35-year history of the event that the women’s team failed to win a gold medal at the World Championships.
The Korean women’s national team aims to recapture the top with 73kg single plate Lee Da-bin (Seoul City Hall).
Lee Da-bin won the competition in 2019 and 2021, but in last year’s competition, she was unable to achieve her third consecutive victory, winning silver medals in the aftermath of a finger injury.
Kang Bora (49kg) and Kang Mir (46kg, Yeongcheon City Hall), female sister players, are also considered dark horses.
The two of them participated in the World Championships together for the first time as Korean sister players last year, but they drank in the quarterfinals side by side.
In the men’s division, Park Woo-hyuk (Samsung S1) in the 80kg class and Park Tae-joon (Kyunghee University) in the 54kg class, who are challenging for a second straight victory following the last competition, are considered to be winners.
The tournament will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan from the 29th of this month to the 4th of June, and a total of 933 players will participate.
Korea will dispatch 16 players in 8 weight classes for men and women.
The Taekwondo World Championships were held every two years in odd-numbered years, but in 2021 it was canceled in the aftermath of the spread of Corona 19 and was held in Mexico last year.
