Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medalist Shin Jae-hwan (25, Jecheoncheon) was unable to reach the podium at the Asian Games.Shin earned an average of 14.149 points in the first and second periods of the men’s vault final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Huanglong Sports Center Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, on Monday.He finished in fourth place behind Japan’s Wataru Tanigawa (15.016 points), Mahdi Olfati (Iran – 14.783 points) and Muhammad Shahrul (Malaysia – 14.466 points).Shin won the vault at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in 2021, giving South Korean gymnastics its second Olympic gold medal in nine years and its first since Yang Hak-sun (vault) at London 2012.In the first period of the day, Shin performed a difficult 6.0 “yonekura” (a three-and-a-half twisting rotation while holding the vault sideways).Of the eight finalists, only Shin and winner Tanigawa were the only two to attempt a 6.0.However, after a spectacular leap into the air, Shin couldn’t keep up with the speed on landing and landed hesitantly on the mat, taking a big step backwards and landing on his butt .He was penalized 0.3 points and finished with a score of 13.766.In the second period, Shin scored 14.533 points for a technique with a difficulty level of 5.2 and an execution score of 9.333. The difficulty level was much lower than in the first period, so even a high performance score was not enough to boost his overall average .”I prepared hard for this tournament, but I had some regrets from the first round,” Shin said in the post-match press area, adding, “I will not be intimidated by this tournament and will become a player who can grow even more. “Regarding his choice to perform a 5.2 skill in the second phase instead of the 5.6 difficulty level ‘Yeo 2’ (two and a half spins in the air), Shin explained, “The rules of the International Gymnastics Federation have changed, so I had to learn a new skill instead of the old one.” “My brother Kim Hansol (Seoul Metropolitan Government), who won the gold medal the day before, played a lot of jokes to help me relax and helped me a lot, but I regretted it today,” he said .Im Soo-min (Gyeonggi Chego) scored a 12.800 in the women’s floor exercise final to earn a valuable bronze medal. With Yeo Seo-jung (Jecheon-do) and Lee Yoon-seo (Gyeongbuk-do) competing at the World Championships during the same time period, Im took advantage of the opportunity to compete at the Asian Games to stand on the podium in her first international competition .She also showed her potential in the all-around final, where she competed on vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise, finishing seventh with 49.166 points .The South Korean men’s and women’s gymnastics teams finished the competition with two medals, including a gold for Kim Hansol (Seoul Metropolitan Government), who won the men’s floor exercise for the second consecutive time the previous day. North Korea, returning to international competition after a five-year absence, had a strong showing with two gold medals from Ahn Chang-ok, who swept the women’s vault and uneven bars, two silver medals from Kim Sun-hyang on floor exercise and vault, and two bronze medals from 카지노사이트 Kim Su-soo in the individual all-around and team events.
