2020 Tokyo Olympics ‘Badminton’ match schedule, Korean national team player introduction

by archysport

Badminton is the fastest racquet sport in the world.

Badminton uses a shuttlecock, not a ball. The shuttlecock, made by inserting feathers into a round cork, weighs only 5g (4.74-5.50g), but when subjected to a strong smash, it flies at a speed of 300 km per hour. High-speed rail KTX In 2013, Malaysian men’s doubles player Tan Bun-Hung set a new world record with a smash speed of 493 km/h.

However, hitting the shuttlecock hard in a badminton match is not the only skill. Since the shuttlecock is sensitive enough to be affected by the wind of the air conditioner, ‘controlling the strength’ is essential. Sometimes the score is scored by hitting lightly enough to go over the net.

If the shuttlecock falls into the opponent’s court at the end of the rally, 1 point is awarded regardless of the right to serve The first player to score 21 points wins the game. If there is a tie of 20-20, the first player to score two points in a row wins. In 29-29, you have to reach 30 points first to win.

A badminton match consists of three games, and the player who wins two games first becomes the winner of the match.

Five gold medals are at stake in the Olympics: men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.

Korea has emerged as a badminton powerhouse since the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, when badminton was adopted as an official Olympic sport.

At the Barcelona Games, Korea won a total of four medals: a gold medal in the men’s doubles, Joo-bong Park and Moon-su Kim, a gold medal in the women’s doubles Hye-young Hwang and So-young Jeong, a silver medal in the women’s singles Bae Su-hyeon, and a bronze medal in the women’s singles Eun-jeong Shim and Young-a Gil.

Since then, badminton has established itself as a steady ‘filial piety’.

At the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Kim Dong-moon and Gil Young-ah in mixed doubles and Suh Su-hyeon in women’s singles won gold medals. Young-ah Gil and Hye-ok Jang in women’s doubles and Joo-bong Park and Kyung-min Ra in mixed doubles won silver medals.

Although there was no gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, men’s doubles Lee Dong-su and Yoo Yong-seong took silver and men’s doubles Kim Dong-moon and Ha Tae-kwon won bronze medals.

At the 2004 Athens Olympics, men’s doubles Dong-Moon Kim and Tae-Kwon Ha succeeded in winning the gold medal again, and at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Yong-Dae Lee and Hyo-Jeong Lee in mixed doubles took the gold medal.

However, at the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, men’s doubles Lee Yong-dae-Jeong Jae-seong and women’s doubles Jeong Kyung-eun-Shin Seung-chan only won one bronze medal, respectively.

The pride of Korean badminton was hurt by ‘No Gold’ in two consecutive tournaments.

However, it also means that the number of emerging badminton powerhouses has increased.

China is the strongest country in badminton, winning a total of 18 gold medals at the 2012 Olympics, including swept gold medals in 5 sports at the 2012 London Games. However, at the Rio Games, China had to be content with two gold medals. There was a crack in the ‘Great Wall’.

Japan won the gold medal in women’s doubles for the first time in Japan, and Indonesia, where badminton is loved as a ‘national sport’, also won a gold medal in mixed doubles.

Spain’s Carolina Marin became the first non-Asian athlete to win an Olympic gold medal in women’s singles.

It will not be easy for some countries to win gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics as well.

In the last week of June, in the World Badminton Federation (BWF) rankings, the first place in each event was men’s singles Kento Momota (Japan), women’s singles Tai Ziying (Taiwan), men’s doubles Marcus Fernaldi Gideon-Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (Indonesia), women’s singles. Players from various countries such as doubles Fukushima Yuki and Hirota Sayaka (Japan) and mixed doubles Zheng Tsuwei-Hwang Ya-chung (China) are occupying it.

Top rankers are also being produced in India, Thailand, Malaysia, Denmark and the UK.

In particular, it is predicted that Japanese athletes, who have recently climbed on the uptrend and can enjoy the advantages of the host country, will make great strides in the Tokyo Olympics. The Japanese badminton team is led by Korean badminton legend Park Joo-bong.

The Korean national team, led by coach Kim Chung-hoe, will compete in the Tokyo Olympics with men’s singles Heo Kwang-hee, women’s singles Ahn Se-young and Kim Ga-eun, men’s men’s singles Choi Sol-gyu-Seo Seung-jae, women’s women’s singles Lee So-hee-Shin Seung-chan and Kim So-young-Gong Hee-yong, and mixed doubles Seo Seung-jae-chae Yu-jeong.

So-hee Lee and Seung-chan Shin (4th) and Kim So-young-Gong Hee-yong (5th), who have the highest world rankings, are expected to win medals. Shin Seung-chan, who won a bronze medal in Rio, is paying attention to whether he can change the medal color with a partner of the same age in Tokyo.

Women’s singles Ahn Se-young (ranking 8th) and mixed doubles Seo Seung-jae-Chae Yoo-jung (6th) are also considered prospective prospects for medals.

Unlike the BWF Open Tournament, which is held as a round of 64 or round of 32 tournament, the Olympics are group stage matches to determine who advances to the round of 16 (singles) or quarterfinals (doubles).

Singles are divided into 12-16 groups (3-4 players per group), and the first place in each group advances to the round of 16. In doubles, league matches are played in four groups, and the first and second place teams in each group advance to the quarterfinals.
