The word ‘appengers’ is used in Korean fencing.
It is a combination of fencing and the popular hero movie The Avengers, and refers to Kim Jeong-hwan, Koo Bon-gil (National Sports Promotion Foundation), Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall), and Kim Jun-ho (Hwaseong City Hall).
This nickname was given to the four athletes after winning the gold medal in the men’s fencing saber team event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held in 2021.
The presence of the four players was especially highlighted as they had outstanding skills and looks,
and were consistently performing well in international competitions.
In fact, the sum of the four was the highest in the world. 카지노사이트
The Appengers, who won the team event at the 2022 Cairo World Championships,
showed off their skills by winning a gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games held in September and October last year.
But now I can’t see the Appengers again.
This is because Kim Jun-ho retired from the national team.
On the 24th, Kim Jun-ho officially announced his retirement through his agency,
saying that he would no longer represent the national team.
In an interview on the 25th, Kim Jun-ho said, “I was unable to properly spend time with my family while playing for the national team.
I had originally planned to retire from the national team after the Asian Games.”
He explained, “Of course, there is the Paris Olympics this year.
But if I can’t stop now and work hard until the Paris Olympics,
my retirement will continue to be postponed, so I made up my mind and made a decision this time.”
It is too early for Kim Jun-ho, born in 1994, to step down from the national team based on his skills.
Last June, he won a gold medal as a member of the Appengers in the saber team event at the Asian Championships held in Wuxi, China, and a silver medal in the individual event.
The world ranking of the men’s saber event in the 2022-2023 season was 12th,
the highest among Korean players.
Kim Jun-ho participated in the men’s saber individual event at the national championship and national team selection event held from the 16th to the 21st and stood at the top. 토토사이트 백링크
Nevertheless, Kim Jun-ho believed that now was the right time to relinquish his national team qualification.
