Can we see Hwang Seon-woo (Gangwon Provincial Office) do the reverse in the 400m freestyle? Hwang Seon-wu’s idea is to focus on the main event, the 100m and 200m freestyle, but coach Jeon Dong-hyeon hopes to see a change through Australia’s special training.
Hwang Seon-woo, who became a signboard of Korean swimming with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, is a professional sprinter. He also participated in the 100m and 200m individual freestyle, 400m and 800m team relay, and 400m medley relay at the 2022 International Aquatics Federation (FINA) World Championships, where he set five new Korean records and a management medal at the Long Course (50m) World Championships for the first time in 11 years. .
The section where Hwang Seon-woo performs reverse stroke is up to 200m. In the 800m relay race, which is preparing for the first gold medal in the Asian Games team event, Kim Woo-min, Yang Jae-hoon (Gangwon Provincial Office), and Lee Ho-jun (Daegu Metropolitan City) competed in 200m each.
In the 200m freestyle, he is showing world-class skills. Hwang Seon-woo set a new Korean record of 1:44:47 in the 200m freestyle at the Long Course World Championships held in Budapest, Hungary last June, and won a valuable silver medal. Six months later, at the Short Course (25m) World Championships held in Melbourne, Australia, he won his second straight 200m freestyle title with a new record of 1:39:72.
However, in the 100m freestyle, Asian athletes are relatively less competitive than Western athletes. Hwang Seon-woo also earned a lucky spot in the semifinals after Caleb Dressel (USA) withdrew from the 100m freestyle at the Long Course World Championships last year, but failed to advance to the final. 바카라
The 100m freestyle record also failed to break the 47.56 seconds set at the Tokyo Olympics two years ago. It is also the part that Hwang Seon-woo regretted while looking back on last year.
Some say it is better for Hwang Sun-woo to focus on the 200m and 400m freestyle.
First of all, Hwang Seon-woo drew a line for the 400m freestyle. In an interview before leaving for training in Australia on the 8th, he said, “Now my belief is to focus on 100m and 200m rather than 400m freestyle.”
He expressed his intention to run the 100m and 200m freestyle in individual events at the World Championships in Fukuoka in July and the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September. My goal is to set a record of 1 minute 43 seconds in the 200m freestyle,” he added.
However, Hwang Sun-woo did not completely rule out the 400m freestyle. He also said, “It’s not that I haven’t tried a lot of freestyle 400m.”
Coach Jeon Dong-hyeon, who left the training camp in Australia with Hwang Seon-woo, said, “From a coach’s point of view, I hope Hwang Seon-woo will try up to 400m freestyle. It’s a situation he doesn’t want to be in, but if he gets guidance from a professional mid-distance instructor in this training, he’ll change his mind.” He seemed to be smiling.
Hwang Seon-woo plans to receive guidance from Richard Skals, who specializes in short and medium-distance freestyle instruction, in this 35-day field training. Coach Skalls plans to conduct the intense training required for middle-distance runners.
Hwang Seon-woo said, “There are some difficult parts because the training program is tailored to middle-distance runners. Usually, mid-distance coaches consider physical strength the most important thing,” but said, “Still, this field training will definitely help to develop physical strength.” said.
