Smile Jumper’ Woo Sang-hyuk takes on the challenge of making history once again.

Sanghyuk Woo will compete in the men’s high jump at the 2023 World Association of Athletics Federations Diamond League Final held at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, USA on the 17th (Korean time). The Diamond League, in which the world’s top players participate, holds a total of 14 competitions a year. The ranking points accumulated from 13 competitions are added up, and the top 6 players with total scores qualify for the finals. Woo Sang-hyuk earned 20 points in 4 competitions and qualified for the finals in 4th place.

Woo Sang-hyuk is the first Korean track and field athlete to advance to the Diamond League Finals. Last year, Woo Sang-hyuk was unfortunately unable to participate in the finals as he ranked 7th in the Diamond League points ranking.카지노

All current top players will participate in this tournament. Mutaz Essa Barsim (Qatar), the ‘strongest player in the game’ who won the Diamond League Final three times, Gianmarco Tamberg (Italy), the champion of the Budapest World Championships last August, and Jubon, who won three individual Diamond League competitions this year. Harrison (USA) is considered a candidate for the championship.

If Woo Sang-hyuk beats prominent competitors and wins the prize, he will rewrite the history of Korean track and field. Hayward Field, where this tournament is being held, is a place where Woo Sang-hyuk has good memories. Woo Sang-hyuk won a bronze medal by clearing 2m 24 in the men’s high jump final at the World Junior Athletics Championships held here in July 2014, when he was still a high school student. Last July, he won the first silver medal in Korean track and field history by surpassing 2m35 at the World Championships held here. For Woo Sang-hyuk, who finished sixth at the Budapest World Championships, this is the perfect place to regain his honor. Sanghyuk Woo said, “The challenge continues. He expressed his determination, saying, “I will work hard until the Diamond League Final and Hangzhou Asian Games.”
