their support during the qualification, and I will approach the final with the mindset that this is just the beginning.”

“I will do my best to break my personal best and Korean record (2m36) and win my second consecutive medal at the World Championships,” he said.

“come back for the medals I left behind,” 스포츠토토맨 can make history in Korean athletics.
