‘All-Asian Games medal’ goal blue light

Seo Seung-jae, 토토사이트 who also won the mixed doubles title earlier, became the first South Korean to win two world titles in 24 years since Kim Dong-moon in 1999.
South Korean badminton hit the jackpot at the world championships a month before the Hangzhou Asian Games.
South Korea won gold medals in three of the five events (women’s singles, mixed doubles and men’s doubles) at the Badminton World Federation (BWF) 2023 World Championships, which concluded on Monday in Copenhagen, Denmark. She also won a bronze medal in the women’s doubles. The three golds and one bronze are South Korea’s best ever results at the event, which began in 1977.
World No. 1 in women’s singles, “Shuttlecock Genius” Ahn Se-young (21-Samsung Life) became the first South Korean to win the top singles title at a world championship with her victory at this year’s event. South Korea’s 1996 Atlanta Olympic gold medalist, Hwang Soo-hyun (51), 스포츠토토 has never won a World Championship title. In the men’s singles, Park Sung-woo (52)’s runner-up finish in 1995 is the best result ever.
Seo Seung-jae (26-Samsung Life), the “left-handed doubles emperor,” has dominated both mixed doubles with Chae Yoo-jung (28-Incheon International Airport) and men’s doubles with Kang Min-hyuk (24-Samsung Life). Seo is only the fourth Korean badminton player to win two World Championship titles after Park Joo-bong (1985, 1991) and Kim Dong-moon (1999).
The ‘Kim Kong Duo’ of Kim So-young (31-Incheon International Airport) and Gong Hee-yong (27-Book Bank) won the bronze medal after winning the 3-4 deciding match. It was their third consecutive podium finish, following their third-place finish in 2021 and runner-up finish last year.
All six South Korean athletes who finished in the podium at this event will compete at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Korean badminton did not win any medals at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games. The team has been training at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village for the entire year with the goal of winning an “all-around medal” in Hangzhou. With the successful conclusion of the World Championships, expectations are high in the badminton world that Hangzhou could be the best Asian Games performance ever.
There are seven gold medals up for grabs in badminton at the Asian Games, including the men’s and women’s team events. South Korean badminton’s best Asian Games results to date are four golds, three silvers, 스포츠토토맨 and one bronze at the 1994 Hiroshima Games.
