I didn’t feel any discomfort while training. ”Woo Ha-ram, who ranked 4th in the men’s 3m springboard at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, the highest ever in Korean diving, has suffered from severe sluggishness since then. The cause was a back injury. He missed the 2022 Budapest World Championships, and at the 2023 Fukuoka Games, he fell to 19th place in the 3m springboard and missed out on a ticket to the semifinals, which would take him to 18th place.

Woo Ha-ram said, “Ahead of last year’s Fukuoka Games, I was unable to do enough technical training due to the aftereffects of an injury. Now, I have completed my training well. Once I advance to the finals and secure a spot at the Paris Olympics, I will aim for a higher ranking.” said .He set his body clock to the ‘Paris Olympics’ .Woo Ha-ram said, “I’m 100% physically, but not 100% technically . I’m preparing to reach 100% technically this summer when the Paris Olympics are held. Winning a medal at the Paris Olympics is my life’s goal. . After recovering from the injury, I trained even during my vacation. I will come to Doha and check the possibility of winning a medal at the Paris Olympics. ”When leaving Incheon International Airport to compete in the Fukuoka World Championships in July of last year, Woo Haram said with a stern expression, “Because of the injury, my training is too short. To be honest, it is difficult to expect good results. “Before leaving for Doha, Woo Ha-ram’s expression was bright .He explained, “It’s because I trained as much as I wanted to. ”Expectations 카지노사이트킹 for Korean diving for Woo Ha-ram are also growing again.
