The baseball team that achieved four consecutive wins at the Asian Games received not only the honor of being a medalist and military service benefits, but also a generous reward.
In accordance with the Korea Baseball Organization ( KBO ) international토토사이트 competition award regulations, the Hangzhou Asian Games team will receive a total of 200 million won in gold medal prize money.
Accordingly, a total of 30 players, including coach Ryu Joong-il, 7 coaches, 24 players, and support staff, are expected to each receive millions of won in compensation.
The national baseball team will also receive government awards separately from the KBO award.
The specific size of the reward has not yet been determined, but it is expected to be similar to the level at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games.
At the time, the government rewarded the gold medalist in the team event with 900,000 won, the silver medalist with 520,000 won, and the bronze medalist with 300,000 won.
National team players also receive daily wages during the convocation period.
Coaches are paid 400,000 won per day, and players are paid 300,000 won per day.
It is expected that each baseball team player convened on the 23rd of last month will receive a daily wage of 4.8 million won.
Above all, 19 of the national baseball team players received military service benefits through this tournament.
This is because instead of serving in the military, you can only undergo four weeks of military training and then focus on your career as an athlete.
In particular, the only current opportunity to benefit from military service is the Asian Games gold medal.
Baseball was excluded from the 2024 Paris Olympics, and it has not been decided whether it will be adopted as an official sport at the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.
