Hwang Seon-woo (Gangwon Provincial Office), the ‘Korean swimmer’, will play the ‘official backstroke game’ for the first time after registering as an athlete.
Hwang Seon-woo will compete in the men’s 50m freestyle and 100m backstroke at the 18th Jeju Halla Cup National Swimming카지노사이트 Championships, which opens on the 14th at the indoor swimming pool of the Jeju Sports Complex.
Hwang Seon-woo has already qualified for the 2023 Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships in the main event, the 200m and 100m freestyle. So this tournament has a strong character of checking his condition.
However, it is somewhat surprising that he decided to compete in the backstroke. Hwang Seon-woo said through his agency, All That Sports, “This is the first time I have played an official backstroke game after registering as an athlete.” Even if you look at the records of the Korea Swimming Federation and the World Swimming Federation, there is no record of Hwang Seon-woo’s participation in backstroke since May 2015, when he registered as an athlete.
While attending Seoul Physical Education High School, Hwang Seon-woo competed in the 200m individual medley (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle) and reversed each 50m backstroke. However, even at this time, he did not compete in the individual backstroke event, and since last year when he joined the unemployment team, he has not competed in the individual medley event. Therefore, this Halla Cup is expected to be Hwang Seon-woo’s first backstroke debut.
Hwang Seon-woo has already won first place with a new Korean record of 51 seconds 99 in the men’s 100m butterfly, which is not the main event, at the 2023 National Swimming Championship held at the Gimcheon Indoor Swimming Pool in Gyeongbuk last November.
Meanwhile, Hwang Seon-woo will continue preparing for the Fukuoka World Championships, which will open on July 14 at the Jincheon National Training Center after the Halla Cup.
