On the 30th, Jisoo Yoon was asked, “What kind of conversation did you have with your father after winning the medal?” and replied, “He said he was very proud,” and “We talked on the phone again today.”

“My team is in Seoul, and my hometown is Busan,” he said with a grin,
adding, “I often drink draft beer with my father whenever I go down to Busan.”

And at this competition, she took the women’s saber title and won the individual gold medal,
defeating China’s Saoyachi in the final on the 26th.
However, Jisoo Yoon suffered her hardships in the group exhibition held on the 29th.
She lost in the semifinals to Japan, where she finished the competition in third place.
Jisoo Yoon was expected to be the team’s ace, but was completely defeated by the opposing team’s ace,
Misaki Emura, in the 9th round.
Ji-soo Yoon, who went back and forth between heaven and hell, seemed to have many regrets.
He said, “Sometimes during the season there are games where we lose unilaterally,” and “I think yesterday was that day.
I will think of it as homework in the process leading to the 2024 Paris Olympics.”
