The pair of Shin Yu-bin (Korean Air) and Jeon Ji-hee (Mirae Asset Securities) (1st place) won the ‘Korea-Japan match’ and secured the silver medal in table tennis women’s doubles at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee defeated Japan’s Harimoto Miwa and Kihara Miyu (33rd) 4-1 (9-11 11-8 11-8) in the table tennis women’s doubles semifinals held at the Archer Canal Sports Park Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China on the 2nd. Won 카지노사이트
As a result, the pair of Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee succeeded in advancing to the finals of the women’s individual event at the Asian Games for the first time in 21 years as a Korean player since the 2002 Busan Games, when the pair of Seok Eun-mi and Lee Eun-sil won the doubles gold medal.
Shin Yu-bin, who had previously had to be satisfied with bronze medals in the team event, mixed doubles, and singles, took the opportunity to challenge for the gold medal in ‘four periods of three matches’.
There is a possibility that the final, which starts at 7:30 PM Korean time, will be held as a ‘North-South confrontation’.
Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee will compete for the gold medal against the winner of the semifinals between North Korea’s Cha Soo-young and Park Soo-kyung (no ranking) and Sutirtha Mukherjee and Aihika Mukherjee (16th, India).
With one more hurdle to overcome, Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee will give Korean table tennis its first Asian Games women’s doubles gold medal in 21 years.
Since the ‘strongest table tennis’ Chinese teams were all eliminated in the quarterfinals, this is a golden opportunity for Korean women’s table tennis to win a gold medal.
The Harimoto-Kihara pair is a combination that has not worked together often before.
This is a doubles team that Japan has newly introduced as a ‘top 10 combination’ for this tournament.
However, from the second game onwards, the team of Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee, who had adapted to the opponent’s tempo, took the lead in the game and the flow did not change.
In the last five games, the Harimoto-Kihara group took a 7-3 lead, but the team of Jeon Ji-hee and Shin Yu-bin, who persistently chased after them, came back to win 8-7, foreshadowing victory.
