Ryu Seong-Hyun, First Place in Floor Exercise at the Gymnastics

Seong-Hyun Ryu, First Place in Floor Exercise at the Gymnastics World Cup… Heo Woong took Second Place in Pommel Horse Training

Korean men’s artistic gymnastics has given the green light to secure additional qualification for the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.

Ryu Seong-hyun (Korea National Sport University) won the floor exercise finals of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) World Cup event held at the International Stadium in Cairo, Egypt on the 17th (local time) with a score of 14.070 points.

Heo Woong (Jecheon City Hall) ranked second in the pommel horse finals with a score of 14.930.

Ryu Seong-hyun, who ranked 4th in the floor exercise event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics,

has established himself as a leading figure in Korea, and Heo Woong is an unrivaled massage specialist with world-class skills. 카지노

Ryu Seong-hyun passed the floor exercise preliminary round of this competition in first place and received the highest score in the final.

Heo Woong, who came first in the preliminaries and advanced to the finals where eight people competed,

was unfortunately pushed back by one place.

Unlike the Korean women’s artistic gymnastics, which won a ticket to the Olympic finals for the first time in 36 years at last year’s World Championships, where 12 countries compete, the men’s gymnastics,

which participated in the Olympic finals for eight consecutive times from the 1992 Barcelona Games to the Tokyo Games, will advance to Paris for the team event.

I missed my ticket.

Korean male gymnasts, who cannot participate in team competitions,

are attempting to participate in the Paris Olympics as individuals.

Lee Jun-ho (Jeonbuk Provincial Office) has already won a ticket to the Olympics in the individual all-around event,

which includes all six events: floor exercise, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars, and horizontal bars, and he is looking forward to one more in the four FIG World Cup series held this year.

Starting with this year’s Cairo Games, FIG will hold four World Cups in each event,

including Cottbus, Germany (22nd to 25th), Baku, Azerbaijan (March 7th to 10th), and Doha, Qatar (April 17th to 20th).

Next, the scores from the three best-performing competitions among the four competitions are added together,

and the 1st and 2nd place rankings in each specific event are given the right to participate in the Olympics.

Ryu Seong-hyun and Kim Han-sol (Seoul City Hall) are each aiming for an Olympic ticket in the floor exercise,

Shin Jae-hwan (Jecheon City Hall) in the vault, and Heo Woong in the pommel horse.

Due to quotas for each country, only one out of four Korean athletes can compete at the Paris Olympics.

Ryu Seong-hyun and Heo Woong made a good start, but Kim Han-sol,

who ranked 7th in the floor exercise finals, and Shin Jae-hwan, the gold medalist in this event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics,

who placed 15th in the vault preliminary round and did not advance to the finals, faced an immediate crisis.

Meanwhile, North Korea’s Jeong Ryong-il took first place in the men’s ring with a score of 14.600, and Ahn Chang-ok,

who won two gold medals in the women’s vault and uneven bars at the Hangzhou Asian Games, also won a gold medal in the vault with a score of 14.230.
