For Hwang Seon-woo (20, Gangwon Provincial Office), the men’s 100m freestyle swimming at the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games may feel harsh. It is the first Asian Games in my life, but it is a competition that requires me to be able to keep the top, not a challenger.
It is said that the 47.56 seconds established by Hwang Seon-woo in the 100m semifinals at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 is still the best record in Asia. However, the need to be wary of two Chinese teenagers, Pan Zhanle (19) and Wang Haoyu (18), whose growth is scary, is growing ahead of the Asian Games.
Panjanler set a new Asian record with a short course (25m) of 45.77 in the 100m freestyle at the 2022 International Swimming Federation World Championships. Even in the long course (50m), he came close to Hwang Seon-woo’s career high by 0.09 seconds with a time of 47.65.
Swimming competitions at comprehensive competitions such as the Asian Games and the Olympics are held only in long courses카지노사이트. Wang Haoyu rose to prominence by winning the 100m at the 2023 China Spring Swimming Championships in 47.89, which Pan Zhanle did not participate due to health problems.
In 544 days (1 year, 5 months, 26 days) after 48 seconds 94 at the 2021 Chinese Sports Festival, he reduced his personal best by 1 second 05. The Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper, Renmin Lebao, also admired it, saying, “It was a result of fighting against myself even though there were no strong competitors.”
With Pan Zhanle absent, Wang Haoyu was only 0.33 seconds slower than Hwang Seon-wu’s Asian record even though he took part in the Chinese Spring Swimming Championships, which was less tense because there was no player faster than me.
‘Renmin Lebao’ said, “Wang Haoyu says that he is not yet satisfied with the technical aspect, such as the turn movement. He did not hide his anticipation, saying, “The 100m freestyle record can be improved enough.”
According to the US swimming media’SwimSwarm’, Panzillar is the 1st place in the 100m Asian ranking in the 2021-22 season. In the 2022-23 season, Hwang Sun-woo is in first place and Wang Hao-wi is in third place.
‘Renmin Lebao’ said, “The internal competition between Pan Zhanle and Wang Haoyu is a great boost to the development of sprints in Chinese swimming. It will lead to strengthening the competitiveness of the Hangzhou Asian Games and the national team at the 2024 Paris Olympics.”
The management events of the Hangzhou Asian Games, including the men’s 100m freestyle swimming involving Hwang Seon-woo, the best record holder in Asia, will be held from September 24 to 29.
