The mother cried when she saw her fallen daughter. He even shouted, “Stop giving up,” but there was no way he could hear his daughter. But miraculously, her daughter rose again, finally winning two Asian Games gold medals in 29 years in Korean badminton history.
Ahn Se-young (21, Samsung Life Insurance) beat Chen Yu-pei (China) in the women’s singles final of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at Hangzhou Binjiang Gymnasium in China on the 7th. World No. 1 Ahn Se-young beat No. 3 Chun Yu-pei with a set score of 2-1 (21-18 17-21 21-8).
It is the second gold medal in the Asian Games until the team event on the 1st. Ahn Se-young won two medals in badminton at the Asian Games for the first time in 29 years since the 1994 Hiroshima Games.
It was not an easy victory. Ahn Se-young was initially expected to win a landslide victory, but an unexpected variable occurred. Ahn Se-young fell down holding his right knee while leading 18-16 in the first set. The injury that had been painful has worsened. Ahn Se-young, who called for medical time, still won the first set by three points. 스포츠토토사이트
However, he couldn’t play properly because of pain in the second set. Veteran Chen Yu-pei persistently attacked Ahn’s weaknesses. Ahn Se-young, whose movement became slow due to her knees, allowed a series of points.
Ahn Se-young, however, got back on her feet. Despite the pain in the third set, he played a strange defense, including a flesh bullet defense, making Cheon Wi-pay sick. When Ahn Se-young, who thought he had knocked down his opponent, survived, Chun Yu-pei virtually gave up the game.
After the game, Ahn’s mother, Lee Hyun-hee (48), looked thrilled with her husband, Ahn Jung-hyun (54). At the same time, water remained in the red eyes.
Lee confessed, “In fact, when I was hurt and collapsed, I shouted at Se-young to ‘stop giving up.'” An official from Samsung Life Insurance, Ahn Se-young’s team, said, “At that time, even my parents could hardly sit back and cheer.”
Ahn Se-young already mentioned in an interview with reporters after the quarterfinals on the 5th, saying, “My knee is a little bad.” Lee worried, “Se-young doesn’t really express that she’s sick, so if she says so, it really hurts.”
Initially, Lee said until the quarterfinals, “My dad told me that I was an athlete (boxing) so I was living with that much injury, and Se-young also accepted it.” He then sent confidence, saying, “Se-young is in a state of burden, but she must have prepared well accordingly.” However, seeing him actually collapse during the game, that was not how his mother felt.
Was it a relief among the misfortunes. Lee’s cry did not reach Ahn Se-young. When asked about this after the game, Ahn Se-young also smiled, saying, “I didn’t hear anything, and even if I heard (my mother’s words), I would have run,” adding, “It hurt a lot, but I ran as if it was the last time.”
Lee looked proud, saying, “I wouldn’t have heard my voice because of the crowd’s roar, and Se-young wouldn’t have given up either.” Ahn also expressed his pride, saying, “In fact, I got emotional when Se-young was treated,” and “I’m proud to win.” It was a valuable gold medal for Ahn Se-young, who overcame her injury.
