‘Let’s go to Hangzhou!’… Korean Team Pledges to Excel at Asian Games Finals Ceremony

Dispatch of 1,140 athletes in 39 sports... Target 3rd place in overall ranking with 50 gold medals

The national team players pledged to do well at the Korean team's final ceremony held 11 days before the opening of the Hangzhou Asian Games.

The Korea Sports Council held the 19th Hangzhou Summer Asian Games Korean athlete selection ceremony at the Olympic Hall in Olympic Park in Bangi-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 12th. 

The decision ceremony was attended by 1,000 people, including foreign guests such as Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Park Bo-gyun, Korea Sports Council Chairman Lee Ki-heung, South Korea athlete leader Choi Yoon, National Assembly Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee Chairman Hong Ik-pyo, International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Yoo Seung-min, officials from 17 provincial and provincial sports associations, and athletes from each sport.

He encouraged and boosted the morale of the Taegeuk warriors who would soon ascend to Jangdo.

In an encouraging speech read on behalf of Minister Park, President Yoon Seok-yeol said, "The national team players overcame the difficulties of having the competition postponed for a year due to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) with strong will and passionate passion to impress the people."

“I will run with my heart and support the players,” he said.

Choi Yoon, president of the 
Korea Rugby Association and owner of the men's professional volleyball team OK Financial Group, said, "We will do our best to repay the people's passionate support.

We hope that the sweat shed by the players through this tournament will not be defined only by the color of the medal."

“I hope you enjoy the players’ efforts without regret,” he said.

He added, “I hope that unpopular and unrecognized sports will become widely known through this competition, and that it will serve as an opportunity for our country to go beyond being a sports powerhouse and become an advanced sports country.”

Inbee Park, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics women's golf gold medalist who is running as a Korean candidate for the IOC athlete member vote to be held during next year's Paris Olympics, said in a video, "The national team players must have worked hard preparing for the Asian Games, and I will support them hard from behind, so I hope for a good result. “I hope there is,” he said.

Team leader Choi Yoon vigorously waved the Korean national team flag, and player representatives Ahn Se-young (badminton) and Kim Woo-min (swimming) received gifts presented to the team.

Because the stage was cramped, photographers went on stage instead of the athletes sitting in the audience and took a commemorative group photo, ending the ceremony.

The Hangzhou 
Asian Games will begin on the 23rd and close on October 8 in six cities, including Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province, China.

The Korean team dispatched a record-high 1,140 athletes to 39 events, aiming to win as many as 50 gold medals and take third place in the overall rankings.

The Sports Council predicts that if the gold medal gap with Japan, which widened significantly during the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, is reduced to less than 10 this time, it will be worth competing with Japan again at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

After completing the ceremony, the athletes will depart for China in order according to the event schedule, and the main team will board a plane to Hangzhou on the 20th.
