I slipped.]

The newly paved track ahead of this competition was a bit slippery, but when it rained, the last rehearsal was canceled tomorrow after much consideration.

[Sanghyuk Woo / National High Jump Team: There seems to be a setback on the track, and there seems to be a risk of injury.

I'm thinking of going to Oregon and showing that explosive energy.] He said that he

was ready and showed strong confidence in his first world championship medal.

[Woo Sang-hyeok/High Jump National Team: It really has come, now it is here, and I want to say that the time has finally come to show it again.]

Hwang Seon-woo's silver performance at the World Swimming Championships was a great stimulus.

[Sanghyuk Woo/National High Jump National Team: When (Sunwoo Hwang) won the silver medal, I felt great too, and I am trying my best to win the medal.]

Kim Kook-young, who entered the 100m final in heavy rain, recorded 10.22 in the world championship. Again, it fell short of the standard record.
