Unfortunate Mistake in the Second Period… Kim Su-ji, 8th Place in Women’s Diving 1m at the World Championships

Kim Su-ji (25, Ulsan Metropolitan City Hall) made a fatal mistake in the second period and lost her chance to win a medal at the World Aquatics Championships.

Suji Kim placed 8th in the women’s 1m springboard diving final at the 2024 World Aquatics Championships held at the Hamad Aquatic Center in Doha, Qatar on the 3rd (Korean time) with a total score of 248.60 points in the 1st to 5th periods.

The second period was disappointing. 바카라사이트

Kim Su-ji, who got off to an easy start in the first period by scoring 54.00 points and tying for third place,

made a mistake in the second period while attempting to do 105B’,

which involves standing forward with both legs straight,

bending the upper body and grabbing the legs with both arms, and doing 2.5 laps in a pike motion.

It scored only 33.80 points.

The median ranking fell to 10th.

I was even more disappointed because I had scored 53.30 points with the same movement in the preliminaries.

Kim Su-ji performed her 3rd to 5th periods without making any major mistakes,

but was unable to significantly improve her ranking.

In the preliminaries, Suji Kim ranked second out of 47 people with 243.85 points and advanced to the finals where the top 12 compete.

China, the ‘best in diving’, did not participate in the women’s 1m springboard,

raising hopes of winning a medal.

However, due to a mistake made in the second period of the finals,

the team had to be satisfied with entering the ‘top 10’ in this event.

Suji Kim won the world championship medal (3rd place in 1m springboard) for the first time in Korean diving history in Gwangju in 2019.

At the Doha World Championships, where he overcame a torn cartilage injury in his left knee,

he attempted to win his second diving medal for Korea, but failed to stand on the podium in the 1m springboard.

Suji Kim will also compete in the women’s 3m springboard individual event,

women’s synchro 3m springboard, and mixed synchro 3m springboard.

In the individual 3m springboard event, she aims to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

If she places in the top 12 in this event and makes it to the final,

she virtually secures her ticket to the Paris Olympics.
