South Korean women’s sport climbing standout Seo Chae-hyun (19, The North Face-Seoul City Hall) won a silver medal in her first Asian Games after rain prevented her from competing in the final against Mori Ai (20, Japan).The women’s lead-combined final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games was rained out on Sunday at the Yangshan Sports Climbing Center in Kirqiao, Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province, China .As per the competition rules, Seo finished the semifinals in second place, and her final ranking was also second. In fact, Seo and Mori had the same semifinal total of 199.73 points (99.73 in bouldering and 100 in lead), but the semifinal rankings were split, with Mori first and Seo second. This was in accordance with the competition’s rules, which state that if the semifinal scores are tied, the qualification scores will be used to determine the order of finish. Mori took first place in qualifying with a total of 196.0 points (99.9 bouldering, 96.1 lead), while Seo finished second with a total of 176 points (79.9 bouldering, 96.1 lead).After the results of the first and second semifinals, Seo was not disappointed and prepared for a rematch in the final. As long as you finish in the top eight, your semifinal ranking doesn’t affect your final position, as it only determines the order in which you climb the wall in the final. Qualifying positions are even less influential .However, the rain that soaked the Yangsan Sport Climbing Center meant that the first and second place qualifying scores would not matter. Zhang Yutong (CHINA), who finished third in the semifinals with 175.7 points, took third place. Sasol (29-CN), who won silver in the women’s combined at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, the first time sport climbing was included in the program, finished fifth (175.7 points).”I wanted to have a fun competition in the final, but I didn’t even get a chance to challenge for the title,” Seo said, adding, “Sasol could have done better in the final, but that’s how it ended. “However, Seo turned her attention to the Olympics, saying, “In November, the Asian qualifiers for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be held.” “I will definitely get a ticket to the Olympics then, and show a better performance at the main event in 2024,” she said .At the Games, Korean sport climbing won two silver and two bronze medals. Seo Chae-hyun and men’s combine Lee Do-hyun (Blackyak) won silver, while the men’s and women’s speed relay teams won bronze together.In Jakarta-Palembang 2018, the team won one gold (Chun Jong-won, men’s), one silver (Sasol, women’s) and one bronze (Kim In-ja, women’s) in the combined events. While they didn’t win gold in Hangzhou, their total medal count increased by one. “Sport climbing is a sport that is growing in popularity around the world,” said Seo Jong-guk, head coach of the Korean National Team. “The level in Asia is very high, 카지노사이트 and the fact that we won medals in both speed and combine means that the athletes put in a lot of hard work,” he said.
