Ji Yoo-chan defeated Hwang Sun-woo in the 50m freestyle to win the national team selection match

The sign of Korean swimming management is Hwang Sun-woo (20, Gangwon-do Provincial Government), but if the distance becomes shorter, Ji Yoo-chan (21, Daegu Metropolitan City Hall) will become the “best in Korea.”

Ji Yoo-chan won the men’s 50m freestyle final with a time of 22.15 seconds at the 2024 National Swimming Competition held at Gimcheon Indoor Swimming Pool in Gyeongbuk on the 28th.

In second place was Hwang Sun-woo, who shot a touchpad in 22:43.

Hwang won the 100m freestyle (48.57 seconds) and 200m freestyle (1:45.68 seconds) in the competition.

Hwang Sun-woo also holds the Korean record (100m freestyle 47:56, 200m freestyle 1:44:40).

However, the Korean record for the 50m freestyle was made by Ji Yoo-chan.

Ji Yu-chan set a new Korean record of 21.84 seconds in the 50m freestyle preliminary round at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, on the morning of September 25, and in the final that afternoon, he shortened his record to 21.72 seconds and won the gold medal.

Ji Yoo-chan also won the 2024 national team selection competition, solidifying her position as Korea’s No. 1 in the 50m freestyle.

However, Ji Yoo-chan’s record was 0.03 seconds slower than the International Swimming Federation A record of 22.12. 안전 토토사이트

If he surpasses the International Federation A record in this national selection match and is in the top two in each event, he will confirm his participation at the Doha World Championships in February next year.

The first place in each event, which fails to pass the International Federation A record and passes the Korea Swimming Federation (KSF) standard record, will decide whether to participate in the World Championship through deliberation by the Performance Improvement Committee.

Ji Yoo-chan passed the KSF reference record of 22.45 seconds with ease and became the “target of the World Championship” of the Performance Improvement Committee.
