“The only adult I’ve ever yelled at during a game is my mom, and she still doesn’t know about this. She only found out that her son won a gold medal because someone else told her, and she said she loved the ‘clumsy’ text.” ‘Forty-four-year-old gold medalist’ Kim Kwan-woo’s voice trembles. Kim defeated Chinese Taipei’s Hsiang-Yu Lin in the Street Fighter V final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Aug. 28, becoming the first South Korean to win a gold medal in esports, which became an official sport of the Asian Games. The next day, on the 29th, he had the privilege of attending the medalists’ press conference at the Korean Olympic Committee’s Sports Diplomacy Lounge at a hotel in Hangzhou, China, and burst into tears when asked if any of the adults who scolded him when he was playing had ever congratulated him .”My mom doesn’t really know about this stuff yet, and she’s an old lady, so it’s hard to find her… She said someone else called her and said, ‘Your son won a gold medal. “She said, ‘I’m so happy for you. I’m so happy for you,” he cried. “My brother, a relative I hadn’t seen in a long time, also contacted me,” he said, breaking down in tears .The athlete, who trained for up to 10 hours a day to win the Asian Games gold medal, said he was driven by the challenge. “I challenge myself in most competitions,” Kim said. “I’ve been playing for a long time, but as I grew up, I wanted to make a strong showing at the Asian Games, and I’m glad I got the gold medal,” he said. “Street Fighter, if you’ve ever played it, it’s an arcade game, and you always get beat up when you go to play it. I don’t think there’s anyone who hasn’t been beaten up when they were younger,” he said, “but I’ve always loved it, and I’ve come this far with a strong will and a strong desire to win, even when I’ve been hit in the side.” Kim Kwan-woo’s rise to the top of Asia through a pastime enjoyed by most men his age has drawn the attention of sports stars .Among them was fencer Koo Bon-gil, who has won more gold medals at the Summer Asian Games than any other Korean athlete (six).”Honestly, I’m good at fighting games, especially ‘Tekken,'” said Koo, who was sitting next to Kim at the press conference. “I’m so good that if Tekken was held at the Asian Games, I might have been here instead of Kim, and I’m still doing it today,” he said.” What’s great about games is that they require a lot of focus. Whether it’s 카지노사이트 esports or sports, it’s an important part,” he said.
