A press conference on the settlement of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Sports Diplomacy Lounge of the Korean Sports Council at a hotel in Hangzhou, China, on the 8th (Korea Standard Time). Lee Ki-heung, chairman of the Korea Sports Council, who caught the microphone, reflected on the Hangzhou Asian Games and revealed a blueprint for the future of Korean sports.
“I think we’ve been too complacent in the meantime,” he said. “It was very low in speculative stocks that have traditionally been strong, but I think we need to think about how to set the direction,” he said.
Chairman Lee Ki-heung continued, “Sports trends among the younger generation, such as E-sports, breakdancing, and skateboarding, are changing.” I think we need to prepare from a mid- to long-term perspective,” he said. “We plan to strengthen international work to investigate good overseas cases and reinforce professional manpower. It is very difficult and difficult to recover if you are settled in the current situation. We have to prepare from now on,” he added.
Regarding the reason why some events, which were called filial events such as judo and wrestling, are sluggish, Chairman Lee Ki-heung said, “Players these days try not to train their physical strength. That’s the reality. However, it is not compulsory. “If it gets a little worse, there are even stories about human rights,” he said, expressing regret.
He also said, “You can’t do it the old way. It is clearly something that needs to be re-lit amid difficulties in the supply and demand of players due to the declining population,” he stressed.
At the end of the press conference, Chairman Lee Ki-heung said, “The Paris Olympics are really just around the corner. “When I return to Korea, I will think about how to establish a strategy for this part,” he said. “Next year, I plan to have the national team players undergo the Marine Corps’ self-training before entering the athletes’ village.” I’ll join you,” he said. 안전놀이터
Chairman Lee Ki-heung said, “It should not be done in the old way,” but admitted to himself that he had pre-modern thinking that only emphasized mental strength.
Earlier on August 24, the Korea Sports Council held the D-30 Media Day for the South Korean team at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at the Jincheon National Training Center Championship House.
Lee Ki-heung, president of the Korea Sports Council, Choi Yoon, head of the Asian Games, and Jang Jae-geun, president of the athletes’ village, as well as famous athletes and leaders from each sport, including Kim Woo-jin (Archery), Kim Woo-min (Swimming), Shin Yu-bin (table tennis), and Koo Bon-gil (fencing), attended the event to express their determination to participate in the Asian Games.
Korea has always maintained its second place from the 2002 Busan Games to the 2014 Incheon Games. However, at the 2018 Asian Games in Zakarka and Palembang, they remained in the third place with 49 gold medals. In 2014, she won 79 gold medals in Incheon, but 30 were down in four years.
Jang Jae-geun, the head of the athletes’ village, said, “At the last Jakarta-Palembang tournament, the players’ autonomy was emphasized. However, his ranking has fallen a lot in this competition,” he said, trying to make changes to improve his performance.
“In the last tournament, I aimed to strengthen my mental strength by changing the early morning exercise, which was left to self-determination, into mandatory training. It is conducted to strengthen the mental strength, such as the concentration of training and the mindset of the players, he said. “The mountain training once every two weeks has also been revived.” It also controls Wi-Fi in athletes’ villages from midnight to 5 a.m. This is a time for players to rest,” he said.
Jang Jae-geun, the head of the athletes’ village, said, “Players use one room per person. It is difficult to check whether the players are resting or not. Internet problems should not interfere with the next training. During the Asian Games, we are temporarily controlling the Internet and aligning the biorhythms,” he said.
It is good to increase the amount of training to improve performance, but controlling Wi-Fi does not mean that mobile phones cannot be used. On the contrary, it only creates resistance. Some players said, “I didn’t know Wi-Fi was controlled. “There is no problem using unlimited data plans (using mobile phones even if you control Wi-Fi),” he said, expressing his bewilder.
Marine Corps Weapon Training and Wi-Fi Control. This is where you can see what the elderly of the Korean Sports Council have in mind. Before talking about the future of Korean sports, shouldn’t we abandon our old-fashioned mindset.
