It’s a weekly sports time to deliver sports news for the week.
I’m with reporter Kwon Ki-jun.
I heard that Heo Mi-mi, who has emerged as a new hope for Korean women’s judo, achieved another good result in the world competition?
On the 28th of last month, Heo Mi-mi, a member of the Gyeongbuk Sports Association’s judo team, won the gold medal by beating the winner of last year’s world championship in an extended match at the 2023 Portuguese Grand Prix of the International Judo Federation.
The athlete she faced in the women’s under-57kg final was Brazil’s Rafaela Silva, gold medalist at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and winner of last year’s World Championships.
She won her bout with an uplift over her left shoulder in the third and a half minutes of overtime.
Previously, Heo Mi-mi also won the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam held in the United Arab Emirates in October of last year by defeating Kosovo’s Nora Jacoba, the gold medalist at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, with a single victory, making her the world’s strongest in this weight class.
Hermimi, who made a surprise debut on the world stage by ranking first at the Tbilisi Grand Slam, an international competition she participated in last June, won three gold medals in just seven months of participating in international competitions, winning the Portuguese Grand Prix following the Abu Dhabi competition.
With her victory, Heo Mi-mi is likely to advance to the top 5 in the world rankings and the top 3 in the Olympic rankings.
She is also expected to perform well at this year’s Paris Grand Slam.
It is said that the professional basketball gas corporation’s losing streak continues.
There must be a lot of fans who are concerned about whether they can play spring basketball?
KOGAS, which was sluggish with three consecutive losses, including losing after two consecutive extended matches, failed to win its fourth game in an away game against Suwon KT on the 31st of last month.
While Lee Dae-heon was unable to play due to a suspected rib fracture, Lee Dae-seong scored 22 points, and Holloway, who tried to return to the United States, played hard with 21 points and 13 rebounds, but could not escape the losing streak.
In the first half alone, the lead was exchanged 12 times, and by the third quarter, they had won 66-65.
In the end, they couldn’t overcome the 4-point gap in the 4th quarter and gave up the game.
What is unfortunate and regrettable is that all of the matches we lost four times in a row were games that we were winning and could have won.
After taking a break for three days, Gas Corporation called Suwon KT home the day before yesterday (4th) to seek revenge, but it ended in vain.
In the first quarter, the score was tied at 22-22, the second quarter was 43-44, trailing by one point, and in the third quarter, the score was 60-66, 6 points, allowing more score difference, and after finishing, the final score was 73-76, 3 points, 5 consecutive losses. I got bogged down.
Lee Dae-seong scored more than 20 points in 7 consecutive games, and scored 4,000 points in his career by making 2 free throws in the second half of the 4th quarter, but the team lost.
Gas Corporation continued to show the appearance of giving up the game unfortunately at the juncture of the final match, and only won 1 out of the 8 games recently played.
How is the women’s professional volleyball road construction going?
Yes, the road construction is running very well these days, so we are continuing our winning streak.
In the away game against Ginseng Corporation on the 31st, after falling behind in the first set, won 25-23 in a last-minute reversal, then easily won the other two sets 25-15 and 25-19, recording three consecutive wins.
In the match against IBK Industrial Bank on the 4th, the road construction easily won the first set 25 to 16, lost the second set, and then won the reverse with 28 to 26 at the end of deuce, but won the third set against the second set at the end of deuce We lost 27-29.
However, by winning the 4th set 25-19, I had a pleasant 4-game winning streak, the first 4-game winning streak of the season.
In professional volleyball, a먹튀검증 semi-playoff is held only when the difference between the 3rd and 4th place teams is 3 points or less.
The road construction is currently behind the 1st and 2nd teams by a lot of points, so it seems more efficient to maintain a stable 3rd place than to catch up with these teams.
With 15 wins and 11 losses and 3 points added, hopes for spring volleyball are growing as they widen the gap with 4th place team Ginseng Corporation by 8 points and solidify their 3rd place with 44 points.
I heard that there is a new specialized facility for indoor soccer training in Gyeongju. Please introduce it.
Yes, the ‘Smart Air Dome’ created by Gyeongju City is an indoor soccer training facility where you can train in a pleasant environment all year round.
On the 30th of last month, Gyeongju City and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism held a completion ceremony at the Air Dome Stadium in Cheongun-dong.
This smart air dome has a structure in which the roof is not retractable but is fixed and always closed.
However, it is equipped with a system that automatically purifies the air by supplying air from the outside to protect the interior space from various external environments such as rain, snow, and fine dust.
There is also an indirect lighting system installed.
There is no glare and there is no shadow so that it does not get in the way of training.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism promoted the completion of the air dome through a public offering by local governments in 2020, and Gyeongju City was selected as the project destination, and the air dome was completed with a total cost of 10.7 billion won, including 5 billion won from the government.
It is built on an area of 10,000 square meters in the Wellness Center in Cheongun-dong, near the Bomun Tourist Complex, and is the first in Korea to have a regular-sized indoor soccer field, bleachers, training space, meeting rooms, offices, and locker rooms.
The Air Dome, which is expected to become a new attraction in Gyeongju, will be officially opened in April after a two-month pilot operation period.
