Korean women's badminton ranks at the top of Asia for the first time in 29 years.

Korea won a landslide 3-0 victory over China in the final of the badminton women's team event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Binjiang Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China, on the 1st, without giving up a single set. 카지노

This is the first time Korean badminton has won the women's team event at the Asian Games and only the second time in history since the 1994 Hiroshima Games.

It has been 29 years since Korea defeated China in the women's team event at the Asian Games.

Korea has failed to overcome the Great Wall of China on its way to victory, with its last victory in the semifinals against China at the 1994 Hiroshima Games.

At the 1998 Bangkok Games, they lost 1-3 to China and won a silver medal, and at the 2002 Busan Games, they lost 1-3 to China in the final.

In the 2006 Doha and 2010 Guangzhou tournaments, they met China in the semifinals and lost 0-3 in both games, failing to even advance to the finals.

In the finals of the 2014 Incheon Games, they were also blocked by China's wall.

'No medal' Sumo was eliminated in the quarterfinals without even a chance to face off in Jakarta 2018.

With this valuable win, Korean women's badminton avenged its poor performance in the previous competition and announced the emergence of a new powerhouse.

On the other hand, China finished second in a row for the second time in a row after losing to Japan in the finals of the last tournament.

Before that, China swept the women's team gold medal five times in a row, starting from the 1998 Bangkok Games.

The team match is played in the following order: singles - doubles - singles - doubles - singles, and the first person to win 3 out of 5 rounds is the winner.

World No. 1 Ahn Se-young (Samsung Life Insurance), who was the first runner, took the lead by defeating Chen Yu-fei (world No. 3) 2-0 (21-12 21-13).

Ahn Se-young, who showed off her lively movements from the beginning of the game, shook Chen Yu-fei back and forth with a combination of attacks that included elaborate hairpins, clears, and smashes.

Chen Yufei repeatedly sent the shuttlecock out of the court without finding a way to attack Ahn Se-young's solid defense.

The second runners, Lee So-hee (Incheon International Airport) and Baek Hana (MG Saemaeul Geumgo), also continued their momentum by defeating world No. 1 Cheon Qing-cheon and Jai-pan 2-0 (21-18 21-14).

Lee So-hee and Baek Hana won the game by scoring in two in-out challenges in the second half of the first set.

At one point, they allowed the chase to reach 18-17, but escaped thanks to Baek Hana's push score and the opponent's receiving error.

Entering the second set, they took a 5-0 lead early on, and after the interval, the score went from 11-8 to 18-10 to take the win.

And Kim Ga-eun (Samsung Life Insurance), the third runner, produced a reversal and put an end to the day's game.

Kim Ga-eun, ranked 18th in the world, defeated He Bingjiao, ranked 5th in the world, 2-0 (23-21 21-17).

It was a surprising victory achieved despite an inferiority record of 2 wins and 6 losses as of Badminton World Federation (BWF) competitions.

Kim Ga-eun unfortunately gave up a set point at 20-20 deuce in the first set, but after pulling out her opponent's consecutive mistakes, she won the first set with an exquisite stroke that fell on the line.

Kim Ga-eun, who took the lead early in the second set with momentum, was pushed back by He Bingjao and allowed a 16-17 comeback.

However, they calmly tied the score at 17-17 and reached the 21-point mark with active net play and sharp smashes.
