<Anchor> In the



athletics high jump, where it was not easy to see Korean athletes in the Olympic final, Woo Sang-hyuk jumped over that wall.

With a record of 2m and 28cm, it is the first time in 25 years for a Korean track and field athlete to stand on the Olympic final stage.



This news will be delivered by reporter Park Chan-beom.

Woo Sang-hyuk flew through the Tokyo sky like a bird.



With light and light steps, I jumped from 2m 17cm to 2m 21cm and 2m 25cm in the first stage.



At 2m 28cm, a crisis hit once.



[Let's go!] My



butt got caught in the 'bar' slightly.



Without disappointment, he took another leap forward in the second period and jumped over the bar of fate to reach the finals.



[



Okay

!]

Out of 33 players, only 13 including Woo Sang-hyeok jumped 2m and 28cm, and Woo Sang-hyeok was confirmed to advance to the finals.




[Sanghyuk Woo / National Athletics Team: I didn't really doubt it because I prepared really systematically with the coach. I never doubted my physical condition.]



Before the Tokyo Olympics, Woo Sang-hyuk, who won the Olympic ticket by recording a personal best of 2m and 31cm on the deadline for submitting the 'authorized record', is 25 years after Lee Jin-taek, who ranked 8th in the high jump at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. made it to the finals.



Woo Sang-hyuk said he would exceed Lee Jin-taek's Korean record of 2m and 34cm, and cast his vote like a soldier belonging to the Armed Forces Athletic Unit.



[Loyalty!]



[Sanghyeok Woo/National Athletics Team: I want to show it properly once again in the final without being too attached to this moment.]



Sanghyeok Woo, in the final to be held the day after tomorrow (1st), broke a new Korean record and challenged for the first medal in history. I go out.
