Even if he attends the medalists’ official press conference, he keeps his seat with a firm expression and leaves. Such North Korean players also smirked at Kim Soo-hyun’s (28, Busan Sports Council).
North Korea’s Song Kook-hyang, Jung Chun-hee and South Korea’s Kim Soo-hyun were present at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games Women’s 76kg Group A competition medalists’ press conference held at Hangzhou Xiaoshan Sports Center in Zhejiang Province, China on the 5th.
Song Kook-hyang won the title with a total of 267kg, beating 266kg of Jung Chun-hee, and Kim Soo-hyun came in third with a total of 243kg.
Gold medalist Song Kook-hyang said with a stern look, “Today’s goal was not this record (267kg), but a world record (278kg by North Korea’s Lim Jung-sim). “It’s a real shame,” he said after saying, “Chinese player (Liao Guifang) couldn’t participate in this (medalist press conference) today, and I’m worried that the injury is not severe.”
Jung Chun-hee also worried about Liao Guipang, who gave up the dragon statue due to injury during the impression match, saying, “It’s my birthday today for a Chinese player,” adding, “I want to get better quickly and play properly with my skills.”
It could be interpreted that the third place was China’s Liao Guipang, not Kim Soo-hyun.
Bronze medalist Kim Soo-hyun said, “I competed in the third Asian Games and finally won a medal. I didn’t even know that the Chinese player was hurt because I was in a good mood…. Happy birthday to a Chinese player,” he said.
Song Kook-hyang and Jung Chun-hee lowered their heads and laughed at Kim Soo-hyun’s unexpected words. He didn’t seem to want to see a smile, but he didn’t stop his shoulders from shaking.
Kim Soo-hyun said, “I like Lim Jung-sim.” “It’s an honor to play against two players who are better than Jung-sim,” he said, adding, “I want to set a bigger goal and go up another level by playing as well as these guys.” He also looked surprised.
However, soon Song Kook-hyang and Jung Chun-hee regained their solemn expressions.
He also burst into tears, not smiles. 경마사이트
When asked about the secret of North Korean weightlifting’s sweeping gold medal in the women’s 5th weight class at the Asian Games, Song Kook-hyang paused for a moment and said, “I think we have to repay our beloved Marshal Kim Jong-un’s love,” adding, “As there is a saying that there is a great teacher behind a great student, there is the hard work of our coach comrades behind our achievements today. “I want to boast such a great supervisor leader widely,” he replied.
Song Kook-hyang also said in a strong voice, “It is the consistent determination and goal of our Joseon players to take the lead in the world and win even if they win.”
North Korean weightlifting has been on the international stage for the first time in four years since the 2019 World Championships. The border was closed in the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), and he was also suspended by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for his absence from the Tokyo Olympics.
Even after a four-year hiatus, North Korea’s weightlifting is overwhelming even China, which is proud of being the world’s strongest.
Jang Sung-guk, who has long been in charge of international weightlifting in North Korea, said, “I have made efforts to maintain the level of our calendar for four years. This time, I have proudly shown the Korean people’s skills in front of the world.”
