‘Tokyo Thumbs Up’ Taekwondo Lee Da-bin, World Championship Jung Aim “Without Regrets!”

Taekwondo women’s 73kg class signboard Lee Da-bin (Seoul City Hall) suffered from bad luck at the 2022 World Taekwondo Federation (WT) World Championships held in November last year.

Lee Da-bin, who was trying to win her second consecutive title, broke her finger in the first round of her preliminary round.

He put up with her pain and showed her fighting spirit, but he was unfortunately defeated in the final and took her silver medal around her neck.

Unfortunately, the women’s Taekwondo national team did not win a single gold medal at the event, and placed 11th overall, the worst ever.

Lee Da-bin, who was a leading gold medalist, suffered from guilt.

Lee Da-bin, whom she met on the 16th at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village, said she was “very disappointed” and that “more than not winning the gold medal, she was upset that she hadn’t put all her skills into it,” she said.

“She was much more regretful than when she lost in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic final,” he added. “I still feel bad when I think about that time.”

In the women’s over-67kg final at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games held in 2021, Lee Dabin made headlines after she lost 7-10 to Milica Mandić (Serbia), where she cleanly conceded defeat and raised the thumb to her opponent. have collected안전놀이터

Lee Da-bin’s ‘thumbs up’ has also become a model of sportsmanship.

He said, “She had no regrets because then she poured everything into it.”

Lee Da-bin is trying to wash away the regrets of last year through the 2023 World Championships.

Lee Da-bin, who won the national selection match, aims to win the World Championships to be held in Baku, Azerbaijan from the 29th of this month.

He said, “I want to play a game without regrets.”

In fact, Lee Da-bin’s physical condition is not very good. He recently injured the medial ligament in his right knee and hamstring (muscles in the back of his thigh) and is in pain.

Lee Da-bin said, “Every Taekwondo player has an injury,” and promised, “I will not make excuses for losing because of an injury.”
