The men's 800m relay team, led by Seon-Woo Hwang, set a new Korean record in the final of the World Championships and took 6th place.

It has been less than 8 seconds since the team was formed in over a year, and the future was lit.

The national team entered the final relay relay for the first time in history with four athletes holding hands and leading the first swimmer Hwang Seon-woo.

Hwang Seon-woo took the lead from the beginning and was the first to run the 200m.

He went through a relationship with Kim Woo-min and Lee Yoo-yeon, allowing the swimming powers America and Australia to overtake one after another, but he did his best.

During the last young boy Ho-Jun Lee's race, we all gathered together and had a hot cheering match, and when Ho-Jun Lee took a picture of the touchpad, he checked the electronic board and jumped with joy.

All born in the 2000s, after meeting for the first time in May of last year, they set a new Korean record for more than 8 seconds in a year or so. It has been a phenomenal record streak.

Beyond Asia, we confirmed our competitiveness on the global stage, further illuminating the future.
