Shin Yu-bin won three medals at the 2023 Pyeongchang Asian Table Tennis Championships, which ended at Pyeongchang Dome in Gangwon-do on the 10th.

In the women’s team event she won one silver medal and two bronze medals in mixed doubles and women’s doubles.

However, in the women’s singles, she was eliminated early with a shock loss to Thailand’s Orawan Paranang in the round of 16. In her singles rankings, Shin Yu-bin is ranked 9th and Faranang is ranked 92nd. 

Many table tennis players criticized Shin Yu-bin for her poor performance in singles, saying it was due to the national team’s management method of focusing on ranking management. 

Korean national team players almost always participated in this year’s World Table Tennis (WTT) tournament. This is because it is advantageous to increase your ranking by participating in as many WTT events as possible.

 A high ranking is necessary to qualify for a good match at the 2024 Paris Olympics. If I get a good match, I meet the ‘strongest’ Chinese player as late as possible. 

This will increase your chances of winning a medal.

Shin Yu-bin participated in 13 international competitions this year, including the WTT and the World Championships. She had to travel to Asia, Europe, as well as Africa (South Africa and Tunisia) and South America (Brazil).

In any case, to beat strong players, ‘skill’ rather than ranking is important, so table tennis players who criticize the national team say that they should secure time to focus on training domestically rather than ‘hit and run’ in international competitions to manage rankings. claim.

On this day, she teamed up with Jeon Ji-hee (Mirae Asset Securities) in the women’s doubles semifinals, losing 1-3 to the pair of Sun Ying-sha and Wang Yi-di, and ended the competition by winning the bronze medal. Shin Yu-bin met with reporters after the match and calmly shared her thoughts.

Shin Yu-bin said, “I think (participating in international competitions) is a good experience. I can’t grow if I don’t have that experience.”

She continued: “(The ranking system) applies to all players equally. It’s not just us who have to protect ourselves,” she said. “We just have to work harder.”

Korean players have never defeated China in this tournament. The same was true for Shin Yubin. She ended her challenge by losing to China in the team event, mixed doubles, and women’s doubles.

Shin Yu-bin said, “Defeating players who are better than me is not just about being good at one thing. You have to be able to use multiple techniques perfectly,” and pledged, “I will make my table tennis more solid.”

Shin Yu-bin, who said her expectations are greater than her anxiety ahead of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which are about 10 days away, said, “I will prepare hard and try to make a good game in Hangzhou.”

Jeon Ji-hee said, “I want to praise myself for surviving until the last day of the competition. I am sorry to Yubin for making a mistake at the end of doubles today. I will do the best I can at the Asian Games.”

Coach Oh Kwang-heon of the women’s national team confessed, “Playing in Korea put a lot of pressure on not only the players but also the coaches,” and added, “We will resume playing against Chinese players. I think we will be able to achieve better results in Hangzhou.”
