The 2022 Asian Taekwondo Championship, fighting type, will start tomorrow (June 24) as the first day. “Tennis” Panipak Wongpattanakit, the 49 kg Olympic champion, will compete from the first day.
But this time, she will play in the 53 kg category, which this year she has competed in the said model in Spain, although the 2024 Olympics Taekwondo does not have a 53 kg version, but why “tennis” has moved up this model? will take a look at the reasons and advantages – disadvantages of cross-generation racing
– reduce stress
“Tennis” at the age of 24 is considered very little for Taekwondo. getting older Keeping the same weight in the same weight is very difficult. so let go Some weight will help athletes feel more relaxed.
– change the atmosphere
Since 2015, “tennis” has been competing in the 49 kg category for 7 years. Plus, she herself hasn’t lost anyone for 3 and a half years. Therefore, moving up a generation will allow her to change the atmosphere to meet some new competitors, while also giving her another chance to prove herself. Because the more championships in many models The more it looks, the bigger it is, like Manny Pacquiao has won an eight-division world championship in professional boxing.
– Reduce the chance of being caught by Olympic competitors
The finals of the 2020 Olympics, we have seen how much Adriana Cerezo Iglesias (Spain) has made the “Tennis” troubling. This woman will be the main contender for the 2024 Olympic gold medal. It would be nice if the two lions didn’t have to duel often. But different weirs are doing the Cold War to collect information continuously. and then go to measure in an important match ever because don’t forget that If you fight often Losers have the potential to lose confidence. Therefore, let the statistics of this meeting be that we have won 1, lost 0 is better.
– No pressure to win
In the 49 kg version, “Tennis” has always carried the word unbeaten and Olympic champion. even though it looks great But on the other hand, that puts a lot of pressure on her to win. When you lose, you may be asked if it’s all gone or not. So skipping a generation means that she leaves her old success and reputation behind and begins to re-prove herself which lessens the pressure on her.
– Provide opportunities for new generations to show their form
In addition to being good for “tennis”, it is also good for taekwondo. because it means that we will see children A new generation of youngsters stepping up to compete in the 49 kg category, we will see who is good enough to step up to replace her or not. If diamonds are found, it is good to give children have gained some experience But if you haven’t found it yet, it’s time to continue raising the statue. Because at least in this 49 kg version, there is still tennis as the number 1 in the world.
– Disadvantage of impact force
Carrying the weight up is sure to meet those who are called big naturally, or to put it simply, those who weigh 53-57. The impact force is already heavier than the person carrying the water. Including the whole body will have a larger height and legs longer than ever before, which “tennis”, despite having a tall figure that has the advantage of the 49 model, is still considered too thin when crossing the generations. This is a definite impact. And if the guards are not well protected, there is a risk of injury as well.
– Poor weight management may not be able to reduce
in the sports industry whether it’s boxing or taekwondo An example has already been shown. who have released their weight and cannot be reduced back down But there are many factors involved, such as discipline, rehearsal, nutrition, this is something to be careful of.
