Kim Woo-min (22, Gangwon Provincial Office) beat Lee Ho-joon (22, Daegu Metropolitan Government) in the 200-meter freestyle at the 2024 Swimming (Management) National Selection Trials for the International Swimming Federation’s World Aquatics Championships in Doha, Qatar, next February.

Kim finished second in the men’s 200-meter freestyle final with a time of 1:46.06 on Sunday at the Gimcheon Indoor Pool in Gimcheon, North Gyeongsang Province. 바카라사이트

He touched the wall behind Hwang Sun-woo (20-Gangwon Provincial Office), who won in 1:45.68.

Third place went to Lee Ho-joon in 1:46.07, 0.01 seconds behind Kim Woo-min.

Kim, who specializes in the middle and long distances, beat Lee, who was a finalist in the 200-meter freestyle at the Fukuoka World Championships in July.

Speaking after the race, Kim said, “I’m really happy to get a personal best in the 200m freestyle.

It was a good result for a meet where I wasn’t in my best condition.

I’m also happy and excited to finish second.”

Hwang Sun-woo, Kim Woo-min, and Lee Ho-joon all broke the International Swimming Federation A record in the 200-meter freestyle (1:47.06), but only the top two finishers from each country qualify for the World Championships, so only Hwang and Kim qualified for the 200-meter freestyle on their own.

The problem is that it will be difficult for Kim Woo-min to swim the 200m freestyle at the Doha World Championships.

On the first day of competition, he will compete in the men’s 400-meter freestyle preliminaries on the 11th, followed by the 400-meter freestyle final and 200-meter freestyle preliminaries on the 12th.
