<Anchor> At the
Tokyo Olympics, our women's table tennis team lost to Germany and unfortunately did not reach the semi-finals. The youngest, 17-year-old Shin Yu-bin, who was always bright, shed tears to apologize to her sisters.
By Park Chan-beom.
Korea, ranked 4th in the world, started off smoothly against Germany, which is ranked 3rd.
The seasoned 'eldest sister' Jeon Ji-hee and the youngest ace Shin Yu-bin played in doubles and won the first game after a full set battle.
After conceding a second singles game and allowing a tie, Jeon Ji-hee took the lead again with a complete win in the third single.
Shin Yu-bin's fourth single was the winner.
Shin Yu-bin struggled with German Han Ying's defensive table tennis, which cannot be seen in Korea, and ended up kneeling 3 to 1.
In the end, Choi Hyo-joo, who was in the final singles, collapsed and suffered a comeback defeat, and the quarterfinals were frustrated.
Shin Yu-bin shed tears of regret.

[Jeon Ji-hee: No, good job, good job] The
Korean women's table tennis challenge stopped in the quarterfinals, but the men's table tennis team will continue to challenge for a medal in the semi-final against China tomorrow.
Olympic wrestling leader Ryu Han-soo, who is the symbol of Korean wrestling, unfortunately ended in the last Olympic Games.
In the Greco-Roman type 67kg class round of 16, I lost my tears by one point.
