Pee Jae-yoon (21, Korea Karate Federation), who participated in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games as a “national couple,” failed to win a medal, but worried about his girlfriend Kim Soo-hyun (28, Busan City Sports Council), who will play a few hours later.
After losing 2-4 to Iran’s Bachman Asghari in the round of 16 in the Karate Kumite men’s 75kg class at the Linping Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 5th, Pee Jae-yoon swallowed his tears and said, “I hope Su-hyun will concentrate on herself the way Su-hyun does.” I’ll be rooting for you,” he said. Kim Soo-hyun, the “Korean female weightlifting star,” harvested the bronze medal.
Kim Soo-hyun won the bronze medal in the women’s 76kg weightlifting event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Hangzhou Xiaoshan Sports Center in Zhejiang Province on the 5th, lifting 105kg in height, 138kg in silver, and 243kg in total.
Kim Soo-hyun, who unfortunately failed to win the prize at the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang competitions, took the podium in his third appearance in the competition.
Kim Soo-hyun, who succeeded in 105kg in the first period of the hike, failed to lift 109kg in the second period. In the third period, he tried 109kg and soon missed Babel.
Still, I gained more strength in Yongsang. He succeeded in 132kg in the first period and 136kg in the second period. He lifted 138kg in the third period, but he was judged unsuccessful. However, the video review was corrected and the record was recognized.
Kim Soo-hyun has a bitter memory of stepping down empty-handed after being judged as a “no lift (failure)” even though she was about to win a bronze medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
He led 2-1 with a golden score a second before the end of the 1-1 match, but immediately allowed a kick attack and lost 2-4.
Bachmann’s technique was played with the sound of the game ending and was recognized as a goal through video review. 안전놀이터
Pee Jae-yoon could not leave the mat for a long time after the decision was made. He burst into the communal coverage area in tears and couldn’t hold back his emotions for a while.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t give you a good result,” he said. “If I focused a little more, it would have been a game that could have won, but I don’t think I focused at the end. It was 2 percent short,” he said, lowering his head.
As Bachman lost in the quarterfinals, Pee Jae-yoon failed to win a medal as the chance to advance to the consolation match disappeared.
Regarding Kim Soo-hyun, who will play in the afternoon, Pee Jae-yoon said, “Yesterday, I saw each other for about 10 minutes in the athletes’ village because we were concentrating on our training,” adding, “They were both in good condition, but the result came out like this.” He added, “I hope Soo-hyun focuses well on himself.”

It was two years ago that Pee Jae-yoon and Kim Soo-hyun, the women’s 76kg weightlifting national team, first met. I met him through the introduction of Park Hee-joon, a member of the karate national team. The two players, who continued to have good feelings, developed into lovers last fall and became the famous ‘official couple’ of Jincheon National Training Center.
The two players were lovers, teammates, and strong support to each other. They encouraged and encouraged each other in every big competition. Pee Jae-yoon and Kim Soo-hyun promised to win a medal together at the event, and the two athletes’ matches happened to be held on the same day, raising higher expectations.
