First place in the men's 100-meter freestyle in 48.48
Possible first three-year medalist in history if he wins five titles

Hwang Sun-woo (Gangwon Province) won gold in the 100-meter freestyle, giving him four medals. With one more event to go, he could win a fifth.

Hwang Sun-woo, representing Gangwon Province, finished first in the men's 100-meter freestyle in 48.48 seconds at the Mokpo Indoor Swimming Pool in Mokpo, Jeollanam-do, on Nov. 18.

His time of 48.48 was slower than his own Korean record of 47.56 and the meet record of 47.78.

However, it was still good enough for first place ahead of Kim Jin-won (49.11), Kim Min-joon (49.14) and Ji Yoo-chan (49.17).

After the competition, Hwang Sun-woo said through his agency, All That Sports, "I was worried about the 100m freestyle today because I wasn't in the best condition, but I'm happy that I finished with a time in the 48.4sec range." "I realized the importance of taking care of my body through this National Championships, and I will use this experience to thoroughly prepare for the upcoming competitions," he said.

She won gold in the 100-meter freestyle, 200-meter freestyle, and 400- and 800-meter freestyle relays, making it a four-peat on the day. This is the second consecutive year the team has won four medals at the national championships.

If he wins the men's 400-meter medley relay on Aug. 19, he will win five medals.

If he wins five medals, he would become the first athlete in history to win the event three years in a row. He won five medals in 2021 and four in 2022, and was named Most Valuable Player for the second straight year.

"If I do well in the 400-meter medley relay, it would mean a lot to me to win five medals," he said. "I want to do my best until the end of the competition and become a better athlete." 스포츠토토맨
