Slippery in the rain Woo Sang-hyuk falls to 4th place at Taiwan International Athletics Championships with 2m22

‘Smile Jumper’ Woo Sang-hyuk

Sanghyuk Woo (28, Yongin City Hall) ranked 4th at the 2024 Taiwan International Athletics Championships.

Not only did he not have the feel for the game yet, but he also struggled on a rain-soaked field.

Sanghyuk Woo finished fourth out of 12 athletes with 2m 22 in the men’s high jump competition held in Taipei, Taiwan on the 1st.

Akamatsu Ryoichi (Japan), Fu Zhaoxuan (Taiwan), and Takashi Eto (Japan), who exceeded 2m25, were ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in order of the lowest number of failures. 메이저사이트

The match on this day started from 1m 95, but Woo Sang-hyuk made his first jump at 2m 16.

Woo Sang-hyuk, who easily surpassed 2m16 in the first period, cleared 2m22 in the second period.

Woo Sang-hyuk, who holds a personal best of 2m 36, passed 2m 25.

Akamatsu, Fu Zhaoxuan, and Eto applied for 2m25. Akamatsu exceeded 2m25 in the first period, and Fu Zhaoxuan and Eto exceeded 2m25 in the second period.

Four people attempted the 2m28 height, and all touched the bar three times.

In the end, Woo Sang-hyuk’s record, having skipped 2m 25, became 2m 22. Woo Sang-hyuk, who was a strong candidate for the championship, was unable to overcome the barrier of 2m28, 8cm lower than his personal best record, and finished in 4th place. 슬롯사이트

Woo Sang-hyuk, who was classified as a ‘specially invited player’ in this tournament and received attention, was momentarily disappointed by the unexpected result, but raised his hand and greeted the audience.

He also kindly responded to requests for autographs and photos from the players he competed with.

It rained heavily at the stadium that day. Woo Sang-hyuk’s feet were also seen slipping.

On rainy days, most high jumpers perform worse than usual.

Woo Sang-hyuk, who is considered the ‘world’s best jumper’, performs particularly poorly in games played on ‘rainy days’.

He attempted 2m 16 three times in the Stockholm Diamond League held in the rain on July 3rd last year, but failed in all of them.

Woo Sang-hyuk, who received the vaccination in Taiwan, is expected to focus on training for the time being and then take mock exams for the Paris Olympics in two Diamond League games in July (Monaco on July 13 and London on July 21).

The men’s high jump finals at the Paris Olympics will be held on August 11, Korean time. 토토사이트 순위
