Korean badminton, which aimed to win the Sudirman Cup for the first time in six years, could not cross the Great Wall.
The Korean badminton team lost 0-3 to China in the final of the World Mixed Team Championship (Sudirman Cup) held in Suzhou, China on the 21st. The tournament, which is held every two years, is played in the order of mixed doubles, men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, and women’s doubles, and the first to win three wins is the final victory. Korea went up to the finals in an unstoppable fashion and aimed for the top again after 2017, but suffered a complete defeat in the final stage.
In the first match of the mixed doubles match, Seo Seung-jae and Chae Yoo-jung (world No. 5) lost to No. 1 Zhuang Si-wei and Huang Ya-chung, 1-2. He showed concentration at the end of game 1 and took a 21-18 lead, but in game 2 he failed to keep a 6-point lead and lost and lost momentum.
In the men’s singles, Lee Woon-kyu lost 0-2 to 6th-ranked Siwich.
Ace Ahn Se-young, who continued to break the ‘natural enemy’ seal in recent international competitions, also lost to Chen Yu-fei 0-2 (16-21, 20-22) in the women’s singles match in three matches. She has won three consecutive victories against Chen Yufei this season, but has not been able to show off her skills in this match. Ahn Se-young failed to catch Chen Yu-fei in three games even in the semifinals of the 2021 tournament.체스카지노
Team coach Kim Hak-gyun said, “I think we finished runner-up because we still have some shortcomings. Our goal is somewhere else (such as the Asian Games or the Olympics). It’s on the way. I want to praise the players.”
Ahn Se-young said, “I think my experience is still lacking. I will prepare more perfectly and try to lead the team to victory.”
Athletes representing each event will participate in four or five more competitions to accumulate Olympic race points. After temporarily returning to Korea, Ahn Se-young will replenish her stamina and compete in a tournament to be held in Thailand next month.
