Swimmer Kim Yoon-ji wins three titles at the National Paralympic Games

Kim Yoon-ji (17-Seoul) won three swimming titles at the 43rd National Para Games.

Kim won the women’s 100-meter freestyle (S5-S6 combined event) with a time of 1 minute, 28.68 seconds on Sunday at the Gwangyang Seongseong Sports Center Pool in Gwangyang, South Jeolla Province.

Kim won her third gold medal of the Games after winning the 100-meter backstroke (S6-S7 combined) in 1 minute, 54.70 seconds, setting a new Korean record, and winning the women’s 400-meter freestyle relay in a combined time of 5 minutes, 52.48 seconds on the same day.

Kim, who skis in the winter and swims in the summer, became the first athlete in history to win both the Winter and Summer Rookie of the Year awards at the 2022 Paralympic Games.

In February of this year, she won four gold medals in Nordic skiing and was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Games.

Kim will compete in the 200-meter mixed medley relay on Aug. 8, where she will try to win her fourth gold medal and repeat as MVP of both the Winter and Summer Games.

“I’m happy to have improved my personal record from last year,” Kim said, adding, “I’ll do my best tomorrow to win four titles.”

In the men’s individual bowling event (TPB5, TPB6 class, same age group), 바카라사이트 Park Chan-young (Ulsan Metropolitan City) took first place with a score of 620, ahead of Ryu Nam-gyu (Chungnam Province) with 601.

“I’m happy to have won the gold medal this time,” said Park, “as I was unfortunately only able to win a silver medal at the last tournament.” “I will continue to train hard so that I can achieve good results in the future,” said Park.

In the quarterfinal match of the men’s epee team event (class 1-3), Gwangju Metropolitan City, comprised of Choi Gun-woo, Cho Sung-hwan, and Shin Ji-hwan, defeated Seoul 45-41 to reach the quarterfinals. Gwangju lost to Chungnam 45-31 in the quarterfinals and will play Jeonnam for the bronze medal on Monday.
