Kim Tae-hee won the women’s high school hammer throw final of the 104th Jeonnam National Sports Festival (National Sports Festival) held at Mokpo Stadium in Mokpo, Jeollanam-do on the 15th with a new competition record of 60m22, saying, “I wanted to set a new Korean record at this competition, but it’s very unfortunate,” and added, “I think I was nervous because I had to break the Korean record again.” I was more nervous than the Asian Games,” he said.
Kim Tae-hee won the bronze medal with a Korean record of 64m14 in the women’s hammer throw final at the Hangzhou Asian Games held in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 29th of last month.
At that time, Kim Tae-hee broke the Korean high school record (61m24) he held, as well as the Korean record (63m80) set by Kang Naru in 2012. 토토사이트
Kim Tae-hee said, “I think I threw it comfortably because I didn’t expect to win a medal at the time,” adding, “I wanted to write a new Korean record once more this time.” Kim Tae-hee, who has no rival in Korea, fought with him on the same day.
Kim Tae-hee, who booked the gold medal early by exceeding 60m in the third period, fired the hammer with more strength from the fourth period, but only recorded the 50m mark twice in a row, perhaps due to the aftermath of his participation in the Asian Games.
In the last 6th round, he was disqualified for being somewhat greedy. Kim Tae-hee said, “I will definitely break the Korean record next time,” and added, “I will continue training without being proud.” Kim Tae-hee also revealed why he entered the barren hammer throw.
“My brother (Kim Tae-hyung) is 2m7 tall,” he said. “My brother, who had a good physique since he was young, started shot put at the recommendation of people around him, and I, who grew to 168cm in height in elementary school, also started throwing discus after my brother.”
“In 2021, when I was a freshman in high school, I changed my sport because I was advised that my body shape was advantageous for throwing a hammer, and I think I gained confidence because I got better records,” he said.
When asked if she was teased a lot when she was young, Kim Tae-hee, who has the same name as the famous actor, laughed, saying, “I received a lot, but I don’t have any inconvenience now.” When he said, “Be more famous than the actor, Kim Tae-hee,” he smiled shyly, saying, “Yes!”
