High jump Woo Sang-hyeok, who has grown into a world-class track and field star, easily won the first outdoor competition of the season in Korea.

The atmosphere on site was very hot.

Correspondent Lee Jeong-chan reported.


Woo Sang-hyeok, who roared lonely after winning a ticket for the Tokyo Olympics in an empty stadium in June of last year, took a leap forward on the domestic stage, receiving applause from many reporters and spectators.

Woo Sang-hyeok, who succeeded in the first period up to 2m 26 and lightly secured the championship, immediately challenged the world record for outdoor competition of 2m 30 this season.

After inducing applause from the audience, cheers erupted as they crossed the bar to the rhythm.

Blocked at 2m 34, falling short of his personal best, Woo Sang-hyeok finished his first outdoor event meaningfully since the Tokyo Olympics.

[Woo Sang-hyeok / Armed Forces Athletic Corps: I did not want to fall below 2m 30 because the average record is very important, and I think it will continue to rise.

] We thanked them for their interest and reciprocated with the extraordinary fan service of preparing a coffee car at the stadium.

[Woo Sang-hyeok / Armed Forces Athletic Corps: Because of your interest, you are more motivated, confident, and fun.]

With today's win, Sang-hyeok Woo secured a place in the Hangzhou Asian Games, now focusing on the outdoor world championships in July.

In the 100m, Kim Kook-young won the championship with 10.42 seconds, and 19-year-old Biwesa took second place by 0.02 seconds.
