<Reporter> While

digesting over 10 hours of intense training a day to digest five sports, including fencing, swimming, horseback riding, shooting, and track and field, Jeon Woong-tae and Jeong Jin-hwa said they would introduce the modern five unpopular sports, and even engaged in YouTube activities in their spare time. ,

[Like subscribing, even setting an alarm.]

We pledged to win a medal to accompany the Tokyo Olympics.

[Jeon Woong-tae / Modern pentathlon national team: (Last month) There is not one medal, so it would be good if both of them went up (on the podium) together. (If) If two people have to fight for one, when they win a medal, the person who didn't win congratulates them more... .]

They engraved the five-ring mark on the back of their necks side by side, encouraged each other and burned their fighting spirit.

From fencing, swimming, and horseback riding, Jin-hwa Jeong and Ung-tae Jeon finished fourth, and Woong-tae Jeon hit the top of the laser run, the last event that combined shooting and athletics.

Jeon Woong-tae crossed the finish line in 3rd place and won his first medal, raised his arms and cheered.

[Jeon Woong-tae / Modern pentathlon national team: Oh, it's really easy and it's a pity that I couldn't get it with Jinhua hyung... .]

[Jeong Jinhwa/Modern pentathlon national team: Woongtae said 'You did a great job' and then I said 'Congratulations' and just held them without saying anything.]

Jeon Woong-tae, who achieved a miraculous feat by running silently in the shadows, promised to show the power of Korean modern five species in Paris three years later.

[Jeon Woong-tae / Modern pentathlon national team: I don't think he has given me gold or silver medals yet because I want to train with a higher goal in the next Olympics.

The modern pentagram of Korea is just beginning.

I will come back with a better image.
