[Asian Games] Korean women’s hockey lost 0-2 in the final against China… Won a silver medal
The Korean women’s hockey won a silver medal at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Korea, led by coach Han Jin-soo, lost 0-2 to the home team China in the women’s hockey final held at the Archer Canal Sports Park in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 7th.
A Korea, which won the 2014 Incheon Games by beating China 1-0 in the final,
attempted to return to the top of the Asian Games for the first time in nine years, but finished with a silver medal.
At the previous tournament, the 2018 Jakarta/Palembang Games,
Korean women’s hockey lost 1-2 to China in the 3rd and 4th place match and did not fall into the medal range. 온라인카지노사이트
On the other hand, China won the Asian Games gold medal again for the first time in 13 years after winning three consecutive Asian Games from Busan in 2002 to Guangzhou in 2010.
In addition, China also took the ticket to the finals of the 2024 Paris Olympics,
which is given to the winning team of this competition.
Korea still has a chance to qualify for the Paris Olympics through the final qualifying round to be held in January 2024.
Korea failed to advance to the finals of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
On this day, Korea was unable to make up for the goal it gave up to China’s Chen Yi in the 7th minute of the first quarter and wasted no time.
Korea, which maintained a one-goal lead until the middle of the fourth quarter,
was in a tight fight and was unable to continue its pursuit as Chau Mei-rung conceded an additional goal with about six minutes left in the game.
However, Korea won a silver medal for women and a bronze medal for men in this hockey competition,
shaking off the pain of ‘no medals for both men and women’ at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games.
In 2018, women ranked 4th and men ranked 5th.
At the Hangzhou Asian Games, hockey became the only sport among Korea’s team ball sports (baseball/softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, handball, hockey) in which both men and women won medals.
In the 3rd and 4th place match, India defeated Japan 2-1 and won the bronze medal.
