Hwang Seon-woo, who reached the semi-finals by placing 6th overall in the preliminary round.
Today, the scary backside stood out.
I passed the 50-meter mark for the sixth time, but…
Since then, it has split the current with great momentum.
This season, the world record holder, Dressel, followed metallurgically and metallurgically…
I snapped the touchpad up to 3 in an instant.
47 seconds 56.
Of course, the Korean record he set in the preliminary round yesterday… It broke the Asian record held by Ning Zetao of China for the first time in seven years, and advanced to the final 4th overall.
“First of all, I’m really satisfied with this 47.56 and I’m playing with Dressel, and seeing it at the end was the most helpful.”
In the 100m freestyle, which is as high as the 100m in athletics, Hwang Seon-woo made it to the finals for the first time in 65 years as an Asian athlete.
He also boasted incredible steel stamina.
Starting with the 200-meter final yesterday morning, 9 hours later, she set a new Korean record in the 100-meter preliminary, and 50 minutes later, she digested the 800-meter relay.
And this morning, before I even recovered from fatigue, I set a new Asian record in the 100m semifinal.
“Even though I was very tired in the morning, I am very happy to have achieved such a record… Please support me until the 100m final. Thank you!”
Hwang Seon-woo is literally rewriting the history of Korean swimming.
Tomorrow, we will once again make it to the Olympic finals here.
