“I tried to catch my breath after returning home,” said swimmer Baek In-cheol (23-Busan Jung-gu Office), who continued his streak of breaking Korean records at the 104th Jeonnam National Sports Games (AG) following the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. “When I came back to Korea, I felt relaxed,” Baek said after winning the men’s 50-meter butterfly final in a new Korean record time of 23.15 seconds at the Mokpo Indoor Swimming Pool in Mokpo, Jeollanam-do, on Thursday. “At some point, I felt that I had lost my mind, so I straightened up and trained again. “Paik has been breaking Korean records in the men’s 50-meter butterfly this year.
He set a Korean record of 23.50 at the national trials in March, then broke the record at the Hangzhou Asian Games preliminaries on March 28 with a time of 23.39, and then rewrote the Korean record with a time of 23.29 in the final that day, and then broke it again at the national championships. Before the Asian Games, Paik said he wanted to “break the 23-second barrier,” and he came within 0.15 seconds of that mark .He credits his grandfather with the honor of breaking the Korean record. “When I didn’t do well, my grandfather told me to go to graduate school and become a teacher,” Baek said, “but I was still interested in swimming, so I put my studies on the back burner and focused on training.”
“My grandfather passed away not long ago, and it’s very unfortunate that I wasn’t able to show him how much I’ve grown,” he said. After gaining confidence at the Asian Games and the National Championships, Paik said he was ready to take on the world stage. “It has been difficult for me to reach the semifinals at the World Championships,” he said. “I think I can do well at the Doha Swimming World Championships in February next year. I want to have a good race with the best athletes in the world.”Baek’s time of 23.15 is good enough to qualify for the World Championships final. Two of the eight swimmers in the final of the Fukuoka 2023 World Championships 카지노사이트 touched the touchpad later than 23.15.
