Lee Woo-seok, 'Tokyo Double Winner' Kim Je-deok, "You are an Olympic Senior... Give me 10 Points"


“I’m an Olympic senior, so just give me 10 points. Haha.”

Lee Woo-seok (26, Kolon), who won the gold medal in the men's recurve team event at the Archery World Cup held at home, said this to 'Olympic senior' Kim Je-deok (20, Yecheon County Office).

Kim Woo-jin (31, Cheongju City Hall), Lee Woo-seok, and Kim Je-deok of the men's archery team defeated Germany 5-1 (57-55 56-53) in the final of the recurve men's team event at the 2024 Hyundai Archery World Cup 2nd held at the Jinho International Archery Range in Yecheon, Gyeongsangbuk-do on the 26th 56-56 and won the gold medal. 카지노

From the round of 16 to the semifinals held on the 23rd and the final on this day, the men's national team won the championship with overwhelming performance, not giving up a single set to each opponent they faced.

The disappointment of finishing second in the team event at the first World Cup held in Shanghai, China last month was completely washed away.

Lee Woo-seok explained the secret, saying, "While preparing for the World Cup to be held at home, I tried a lot of team combinations.

As we gradually became more aligned, we regained our skills from last year."

It also gave the green light to win the gold medal at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Lee Woo-seok aims for gold in his first Olympics.

Lee Woo-seok honors the ‘youngest’ Kim Je-deok, who won two gold medals at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, as his ‘Olympic senior’.

Lee Woo-seok, who said, "I'm in the position of (Kim Je-deok's) junior," joked to Kim Je-deok, "The senior should do it.

You only shoot 10 points. I'll only shoot 9 points," and laughed.

He said, "I have a lot to gain from both Kim Je-deok and Kim Woo-jin.

Since this is my first Olympics, it's good that I'm learning more and more."

He added, “I really enjoy the process of preparing for the Paris Olympics,” and added, “I hope this trend continues until the end.”

Kim Je-deok, who won a gold medal by shouting 'Fighting' with enthusiasm at the Tokyo Olympics, where he participated as a high school student, pledged, "I will show my confident and fighting self at the Olympics as well."

Regarding pulling the bow string in the order of Kim Woo-jin, Lee Woo-seok, and Kim Je-deok in the team competition, he said, "I have tried various rotations while competing in international competitions with the current members since 2022.

I decided on this order without any doubts during the preparation process, and I achieved good results.

“I paid it,” he said.

Kim Je-deok, who won the gold medal in his hometown of Yecheon , smiled and said,

"It is an honor and pride to shoot and compete in archery in this country.

I think it will remain as a good memory."

‘Eldest brother’ Kim Woo-jin, who is participating in his third Olympics, set his sights on a gold medal in the team event as well as a medal in the individual event.

Kim Woo-jin said, “I am placing the most importance on the team event (gold medal) as we are working hard together,” and expressed his expectation, “If I get the chance, I would like to win an individual medal.”

Kim Woo-jin, who said, “It is true that it is burdensome to only think about the results,” said, “If I continue with the process, the results will follow.

I will focus more on the process”
