Shin Yu-bin: Shall we go straight to Paris? Pyeongchang 亞 Table tennis mixed boxing, China’s strongest team missing
Exciting competition at the Pyeongchang Dome on September 3-10… Team and mixed doubles winning team qualify for Olympic finals
‘Get a direct ticket to Paris in mixed doubles without top Chinese players!’
Korean Table Tennis
Korean table tennis will challenge to acquire a ‘direct ticket to Paris’ at the 2023 PyeongChang Asian Table Tennis Championships, which will open on the 3rd of next month.
According to the Asian Table Tennis Union (ATTU) on the 29th, 온라인카지노 in this tournament, direct tickets to the 2024 Paris Olympics will be given to the winning team of the men’s and women’s team event and mixed doubles.
In the case of the team event, there is not much practical benefit other than the fact that the trip to Paris is confirmed early because even if it enters the quarterfinals at the Busan World Table Tennis Championships to be held early next year, it can receive the right to advance to the Olympic finals.
Ticket to Paris
However, the direct ticket to Paris for the mixed doubles event,
which is an individual event, has a slightly different meaning.
Of the two groups Korea sends to this event, Lim Jong-hoon (Korea Exchange)
Shin Yu-bin (Korean Air) (3rd place) and Jang Woo-jin-Jun Ji-hee (Mirae Asset Securities) (9th place), the group that will make it to the finals will be selected for the Olympics to be held in March-April next year.
They are not required to compete in the Regional Preliminary Mixed Doubles event.
World Table Tennis
In addition, in international competitions such as the World Table Tennis (WTT),
the burden of mixed doubles can be reduced and more focus on singles and men’s and women’s doubles.
In particular, it is a good opportunity for Korea to win the tournament as the world No.
China’s 4th place Lin Shidong-Kwaiman Joe will also not be participating in the PyeongChang Games.
Mixed Doubles Match
In the mixed doubles match, the Chinese pair, Lin Gaoyuan and Wang Yidi (34th) and Liang Jinkun and Chen Tianyi (25th), are both outside the top 20.
Since Chinese players always show strong performances regardless of ranking, it will definitely be difficult to compete with them for medals.
But it certainly looks better than competing against the No. 1 and No. 4 groups.
World Table Tennis Championships
Japanese world No. 2 Tomokazu Harimoto and Hinajo Hayata,
who took second place at the World Table Tennis Championships in Durban and the WTT Singapore Grand Smash held in May, are also contenders that Korean players must overcome to win the mixed doubles gold medal.
In this tournament, internal competition between the Lim Jong-hun and Shin Yu-bin groups and the Jang Woo-jin and Jeon Ji-hee groups is expected to be fierce.
Only one Olympic mixed doubles ticket is given per country.
If one of these teams wins the mixed doubles title at this event and gets a ticket to Paris, the other group will have to give up their dream of going to Paris early.
PyeongChang Asian Table Tennis
The PyeongChang Asian Table Tennis Championships will be held at Pyeongchang Dome in Gangwon Province from September 3 to 10.
About 500 officials and players from 35 Asian countries will participate,
it will be held in seven events, including men’s and women’s singles and doubles, mixed doubles, and men’s and women’s team events.
Korea entered Pyeongchang on the 26th, and has been training for the Asian Championships
for the third day since the 27th.
