South Korea’s women’s epee fencing team has reached the final of the team event at the Hangzhou 2022
Asian Games, where they will look to win back-to-back gold medals following the individual competition.
The team of Choi In-jung (Gyeryong City Hall), Song Sera (Busan Metropolitan Government), Kang Young-
mi (Gwangju Seo-gu Office) and Lee Hye-in (Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province) defeated China
30-27 in the semifinals of the women’s epee team event at Dianzu University Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China, on Sunday.
After sweeping both the gold and silver medals in the individual events earlier in the day, the women’s epee team continued its strong performance by securing the silver medal.
Korea will face Hong Kong for the gold medal at 8:05 p.m.
Korea struggled early on, falling behind 7-11 in the third vault.
However, in the fourth vault, Kang Young-mi scored five points against Tang Jun-yao with only one point to level the score at 12-12.
Substitute Choi In-Jung turned the game around in the fifth bout. Choi, who won the gold medal in the individual epee at the tournament, came in for Lee Hye-in and won 4-2 against Sun Yi Yen to give Korea a 16-14 lead.
The Koreans maintained a two-point lead by playing conservatively but allowed Kang Young-mi to catch up in the eighth vault to close the gap to 23-22.
But individual silver medalist Song Sera was strong.
As Korea’s final runner, she tied the score at 24-24 and then scored immediately to regain the lead. She then took advantage of an impatient China to secure the win. 카지노사이트존
