Woo Sang-hyeok stepped forward to rewrite the high jump world record.
Woo Sang-hyeok, who announced that Korean athletics will advance to the Olympic track-field final for the first time in 25 years, continues his challenge for a medal in the men’s high jump final at 7:10 pm on the 1st.
In the preliminary round on the 30th, Woo Sang-hyuk, who advanced to the final 9th overall by over 2m and 28cm, is challenging Korea’s record breaking and Olympic best performance.
In the final held at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium on the 1st, men’s high jump Woo Sang-hyeok showed a good record, exceeding 2.27m in the first round.
Then, he succeeded in the first attempt up to 2.3m, leading to a good mood.
However, although it failed in the first 2.33 period, it showed the appearance of planting again.
It is a moment of interest to see whether Woo Sang-hyuk can rewrite the world record in high jump.
The current world record for the high jump is 2.45 m, and Woo Sang-hyuk has surpassed 2 m 33 or more.
