The golden generation of Korean swimming national teams will start off-season training in Australia with the start of the Paris Olympics year.
The Korea Swimming Federation (Chairman Chung Chang-hoon) said, “The management team, which recorded the highest performance ever at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, will set up a special strategy development team for the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics and leave for Australia for the Olympics this time.” Seven members of the men’s relay team, including Kim Woo-min, Hwang Sun-woo and Yang Jae-hoon (Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province), Lee Ho-joon (Daegu Metropolitan City Hall), Lee Yu-yeon (Goyang City Hall), national team coach Jeon Dong-hyun, and trainer Park Ji-hoon, will depart for Queensland, Australia on the 5th of next month. 랭크카지노
The overseas training of the “2024 Paris Summer Olympics Special Strategy Promotion Team” is a strategic project for the Paris Olympics in the new year following the dispatch of the “Special Strategy Promotion Team for the Asian Games,” which has led to the most medals at the Hangzhou Asian Games three times since April last year.
Following the first gold medal at the men’s Asian Games in the men’s medley, the team, which aims for the first team medal at the Olympics, will be coached by Michael PALFERY, a former coach of the Australian national team, through joint training with the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, from Jan. 5 to Feb. 3.
Coach Palferi has produced a number of Australian management and Paralympic national team members, and he is a leader who has outstanding performances, especially in the relay. He is the teacher of Brianna Trossell, who holds the world record of 800 meters in women’s relay, and Jack Incerti, who won the gold medal in men’s 400 meters relay at the 2022 World Championships in Budapest. The Korean management team, which continues training at the end of the year after a short vacation after the National Sports Festival and the national team selection match, will prepare for the World Championships in Doha, Qatar from February 2 to 18 through high-intensity training in Australia.
Jeon Dong-hyun, coach of the national team, who has coached Hwang Sun-woo since he was a student at Seoul High School, said, “I would like to thank the federation for providing the players with a good opportunity to experience in 2024,” and vowed to “make it an opportunity to grow one step further with the players so that they can prove that the Hangzhou Asian Games’ performance was not just “luck” at the Paris Olympics.”
