Woo Sang-hyuk is usually full of excitement, but he used a calm and restrained strategy to achieve a good record.
Reporter Park Sun-woo was on the scene.
Woo Sang-hyuk started off fresh, easily clearing 2m 20.
After crossing 2m 25 in the second period, he roared and showed his confidence.
At 2m 30, the challenge came, but Woo didn’t falter.
He cleared the bar in the third period and performed a delightful head-nodding ceremony.
The next challenge was 2m 33, the world record tie of the year, and Woo Sang-hyuk uncharacteristically asked the crowd to be quiet.
After a few moments to calm down, Woo cleared his first attempt with everyone holding their breath.
He clapped his hands in celebration as he realized he was now the world’s No. 1 not only in ranking points but also in records.
Woo attempted a height of 2.37 meters, one centimeter higher than the Korean record he holds, but unfortunately had to settle for…
[Woo Sang-hyuk/Yongin City Hall: “I won the world leader for the first time in a long time, and I feel so good, and I think it’s too much to show my enjoyment and excitement, so I restrained myself and jumped.”]
Woo also expressed satisfaction that he had succeeded in his experiment of applying maximum force when jumping off the ground in an assisted closure.
Woo Sang-hyuk will travel to Sweden to compete in the Stockholm competition on the 3rd of next month to try to win his first Diamond League title this season 안전놀이터순위.
