[Asian Games] Badminton Ahn Se-young, ‘Belated First Win’, “I’m Getting Good Energy”
The Ahn Se-young (21, Samsung Life Insurance), the star of Korean badminton,
won her first Asian Games win and started a golden smash.
Ahn Se-young was her first runner in the women’s team quarterfinals of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games
held at the Binjiang Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China, on the 29th,
easily defeating Maldives’ Abdul Razak Fatimas Nabaha 2-0 (21-1 21-5).
It is a victory that came five years too late for Ahn Se-young,
who failed to participate in the team event at the 2018 Jakarta/Palembang Games and was eliminated in the first round of the individual event. 카지노
On this day, thanks to Ahn Se-young’s dominance, Korea won 3-0 in 70 minutes without giving up a single set to the Maldives.
Ahn Se-young, whom we met after the game, said, “In Jakarta, I played one game and ended,
but this time I’m so happy to get one win and get off to a good start.
These are really important games starting tomorrow, so I’ll prepare well.”
The national team had the luck of not meeting China and Japan until the finals of the women’s team bracket.
Ahn Se-young also smiled, saying, “I’ve heard a lot that you need a little luck to do well in a big competition.
I feel good because I feel like luck is coming to me this time and I’m receiving good energy.”
However, the fact that Hangzhou, the venue of the competition,
is the hometown of competitor Chen Yufei (China) is a cause for concern.
On this day, on the next court where the quarterfinals between China and Indonesia were held,
the crowd’s voices chanting for Chen Yufei filled the stadium.
Ahn Se-young said, “I received a lot of strength from the support of many Korean people despite that,” and expressed gratitude, “It’s nice just to hear my name.”
Unlike five years ago, Ahn Se-young’s heavier shoulders are also a task she must overcome.
In 2018, he was a promising first-year high school student who had won the Taegeuk mark less than a year ago,
but now he is ranked No. 1 in the world, having won the All England Open and World Championships.
Se-young Ahn said, “I was worried a lot before I came here.
I was doing really well (so far), but I also had a lot of doubts about whether I could do well (at the Asian Games),”
added, “The coaches next to me kept saying, ‘Believe in yourself and do well.’ “He gave me.
I believe in myself, but I also believed in the coaches and I came this far.”
