Korea's 'youngest' athletes who participated in the first Olympics in their lives showed courage, saying that they would concentrate on the next game even if they failed to win the prize.



Hwang Seon-woo, who has been attracting attention as 'Post Park Tae-hwan', gave a brief impression on his social networking service (SNS) after finishing the men's 200m freestyle at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games at the Aquatics Center in Tokyo, Japan on the 27th.



Hwang Seon-woo wrote, "It's a bit disappointing, but I still feel relieved after finishing one game. I'm really grateful to the fans and acquaintances who supported me." "I would be grateful if you cheer for the rest of the game."



Hwang Seon-woo, a Korean swimmer who reached the final in 9 years after Park Tae-hwan at the 2012 London Olympics, won the first place in the preliminary round held on the 25th with a new Korean record of 1:44.62 and a new world junior record.



In the final, he finished first in the 150m section, but lost strength in the last 50m and finished in 7th place (1:45.26).



Unfortunately, Hwang Seon-woo, who gained great experience in the first Olympic final stage, will compete in the 100m freestyle qualifier on the afternoon of the 27th and start the next challenge right away.



Shin Yu-bin, a 17-year-old 'table tennis prodigy', also forgets the pain of dropping out in the individual competition and prepares for the group competition.




On the same day, Shin Yu-bin, who lost 2-4 to Hong Kong Du Hoi Kem in the third round of table tennis women's singles (round of 32) held at the Tokyo Gymnasium, Japan on the same day, cheered for herself, saying, "Thank you for your support. I thanked the people.



Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee and Choi Hyo-joo will compete in the round of 16 on the 1st of next month.
