Jeon Woong-tae, a representative of Korea's modern pentathlon, overcame the sadness of an unpopular event at the last Tokyo Olympics and won his first ever medal.

He is sweating hard in the middle of winter with the goal of winning two gold medals in this year's Asian Games and winning a gold medal at the Paris Olympics next year.

This is Reporter Kim Hyeong-yeol.


Jeon Woong-tae wakes up the morning of Haenam, a village at the end of the earth, with his teammates and his teammates running vigorously.

Following the first medal ever in Tokyo Olympics, last year's World Cup final victory and World Championships Jeon Woong-tae, who has won two gold medals, will challenge for two gold medals at this year's Hangzhou Asian Games, including two consecutive gold medals in the individual event and a team victory.

In particular, he is determined not to miss the team event where he can stand at the top of the podium with his teammates.

I believe in the so-called 'become-to-be', where the results follow as much as the effort is put in, and the person who becomes the person eventually becomes.

[Jeon Woong-tae/Modern Pentathlon National Representative: Happy New Year, and we will bring a lot of good news from modern pentathlon this year, so I hope you will support our modern pentathlon.

Thank you.]
