Korea, which consists of Lee Woo-suk (Kolon), Oh Jin-hyuk and Kim Je-deok (Yecheon County Office), beat India with a set score of 5-1 (60-55 57-57 56-55) in the men’s team final of the archery recurve held at the Fuyang Thu Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 6th.
Oh Jin-hyuk, the last runner in the third set, scored 10 points to seal the victory. Oh Jin-hyuk confessed in an interview after the game that he made a mistake at the last minute. “I used as much skill as I could to get 10 points, but it was a little technical mistake,” he said. “It was an arrow that could not fit 10 points, but fortunately it hit me.” 안전놀이터
The feeling was different from usual when shooting the arrow. Oh Jin-hyuk confessed, “When I used the technology, I had to shoot it like it was popping like a rubber band, but it felt like something was rattling,” adding, “I might not have hit 10 points, but I was lucky that I got hit, so the result came out well.”
Oh Jin-hyuk won the Asian Games gold medal for the first time in 13 years since the 2010 Guangzhou Games. “I think every match is good. “Every medal I won when I got older and when I was young is precious,” he said, adding, “The process was all difficult. The mindset is similar to then. I’m so grateful and precious.”
Lee Woo-suk won two gold medals following the gold medal in the mixed event, but was not satisfied. He said, “I’m so happy that I don’t know what to say,” but added, “The game is not over. Tomorrow is the individual bronze medal match. I will do my best until the end and add another bronze medal,” he said.
Kim Je-deok, a two-time 2020 Tokyo Olympics champion, won a gold medal in his debut stage at the Asian Games. Asked if he realized his popularity, Kim Je-deok said, “I don’t feel it well because I’m in the athletes’ village,” adding, “It was so good to live with my team members in the athletes’ village.” “I made memories and received a lot of help when I practiced,” he replied.
