Hwang Seon-woo (19, Gangwon Provincial Office), the ‘signboard of Korean swimming’, pledged to win the 200m freestyle in a row.

Hwang Sun-woo now leaves the 800m relay and 200m freestyle events. The 800m relay qualifiers will start at 10:30 am on the 16th, and the 200m freestyle qualifiers will start at 9:30 am on the 18th. Hwang Seon-woo is scheduled to cross the water in the 1st group, 3 lanes and the 4th group, 4 lanes, respectively.
According to the Korea Swimming Federation, Hwang Seon-woo said, “I finished the 100m freestyle event. The local weather is cold and I am playing in an unfamiliar outdoor swimming pool. It is very difficult to manage my condition.” I will prepare by focusing on the 800m and 200m freestyle,” he said, expressing his feelings ahead of the preliminary round.
Next, Hwang Seon-woo said, “In the 800m relay race, my goal is to advance to the finals and achieve good results by raising individual skills to the maximum. In the 200m freestyle, I won first place in the last competition. I want to repay you with love.
