[시사매거진/부산울산경남] At the 41st National Paralympic Games held without spectators in Gumi, Gyeongsangbuk-do for 6 days from the 20th to the 25th, the Busan Disabled Athletes won 70 gold, 71 silver, and 72 bronze, with a total score of 112,149 points. It was announced on the 28th that it ranked 5th in the overall ranking.

The Busan team achieved higher results than the target thanks to the performances of the track and field, weightlifting, and table tennis business teams. In track and field, one person with four and two gold medals came out, and athlete Ha Ha-hak broke the existing Korean record (33.36m) in the discus. In addition, it has produced a number of multiple crowns, such as 3 weightlifting 3 crowns, 1 table tennis 3 crowning, and billiards and swimming 2 crowns.

In addition, in most of the participating events, the goal was exceeded and the performance exceeded the originally expected level. The city evaluated that the Busan athletes had once again raised the status of Busan Sports by leaping one step to the top through this National Paralympic Games.

Park Tae-seong, head of Busan’s Sports Promotion Division, said, “The city has made efforts to foster professional sports such as the establishment of a swimming and table tennis business team and expansion of sports employment players. The city plans to do everything in its power to foster sports,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Busan team plans to start preparing again with the goal of placing 4th overall at the 42nd National Paralympic Games to be held in Ulsan next year.
