The Park Hye-jin (Goyang City Hall), who won the ‘surprise’ victory in the Taekwondo sparring event at the Hangzhou Asian Games,
was most pleased with the fact that her ‘stigma’ had been lifted.

but she withdrew in the quarterfinals.

The Hangzhou Asian Games were the first major international competition where Park Hye-jin had the honor of standing on top of the podium.

said, “Rather than feeling good about people knowing my name, I just feel more satisfied.”
He added, “I want to be remembered as a player who always worked consistently and sincerely rather than as a player who achieved good results.”
Park Hye-jin’s next goal is to play for the national team once again.
She said, “There is an Asian Championship next year.
Now, to get a ticket to the national team,
I have to win the selection competition.
I want to become a member of the national team once again.”
