Shin Yu-bin, Korea’s top table tennis star,
secured a bronze medal in her first Asian Games appearance.
She also competes in women’s singles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.
Korean women’s table tennis has failed to reach the finals of the Asian Games team event for 33 years since the 1990 Beijing Games, where it won a silver medal.
Shin Yu-bin looked to change her tune as she led 6-1 in three games,
but she was unable to clear Hayata’s hard backhand and she was overtaken.
Korea’s attempt to advance to the finals ended in failure as Shin Yu-bin,
who played 4th singles, lost to Hirano 1-3 (11-13 11-7 10-12 9-11).
Shin Yu-bin’s previous singles record against Hirano was 1 win in 1 match,
if you add their doubles record,
Shin Yu-bin was ahead with 3 wins and 2 losses,
so it was an even more disappointing loss.
The men’s national team, led by coach Joo Se-hyuk,
will attempt to advance to the finals of the team event for the 10th consecutive time
against the ‘ambushed’ Iran at 5 PM Korean time on this day.
