“Korea fighting! (Fighting)”

It is a voice that will be remembered for a long time by the people who watched the Tokyo Olympics. This is Kim Je-deok (17) of the national archery team.

Kim Je-deok, who won the gold medal in the mixed archery team, shouted ‘Fighting’ loudly throughout the game. This sound, called ‘the roar of the tiger’, seems to give strength to the people who are going through a difficult time.

According to Hwang Hyo-jin, Gyeongbuk Il High School coach, Kim Je-deok’s archery teacher, there is a reason for this ‘fighting’.

Today (26th), Coach Hwang appeared on CBS Radio’s ‘Kim Hyun-jung’s News Show’ and told a story related to ‘Fighting’.

Coach Hwang said, “Jeduk didn’t mean to shake the opponent’s mentality, but because he wanted to relax, so he said he would fight.” He said, “I trained by shouting ‘Fighting’ before the tournament.”

He added, “I went on behalf of the country (to the Olympics), and I said that I was nervous because I had a sense of responsibility for that.

Coach Hwang said, “I told Je-duk not to touch his phone a lot and not to read comments.” He said, “I also heard that ‘Fighting’ is ‘noisy’. “I told him not to watch it because I was afraid that the child would get hurt or it would interfere with the rest of the game.”

According to coach Hwang, Je-deok Kim is a perfectionist. If the training isn’t perfect, they’ll shoot the bow for 13 to 14 hours a day until it’s done. I think I’m going to try this until the Olympics. After winning the gold medal, Kim Je-duk said in a phone call with coach Hwang, “I will not slow down until the end and I will try until the end.”

Kim Je-deok plans to ‘fight’ until the end by participating in the men’s archery team and individual events.
