Shin Yu-bin (19, Korean Air), the star of the Korean women’s table tennis team, pledged to win a medal at the World Table Tennis Championships in Durban.
On the afternoon of the 11th, the table tennis team unveiled training at Oryungwan, Jincheon National Athlete Village.
The national team will participate in the World Championships held in Durban, South Africa from the 20th to the 28th. The 12 players (6 males and 6 females) are set to depart on the 15th.
Shin Yu-bin also showed strong confidence ahead of the tournament. Shin Yu-bin, who suffered from a wrist injury last year, regained her confidence this year by beating world-class players.
Shin Yu-bin said, “It was regrettable that she withdrew from the 2021 World Championships in Houston due to injury,” she said.
Shin Yu-bin competes in her individual singles and matches with Jeon Ji-hee in women’s doubles. In the mixed doubles, she will challenge for a medal with Lim Jong-hun.
She cited mixed doubles as her most likely medal event.
She predicted Shin Yu-bin, “All three events are important because she represents Korea in three events. But the mixed doubles with brother Lim Jong-hoon are the most important.”
Shin Yu-bin explained, “(Lim) Jong-hoon oppa has a powerful side while managing a stable game. I think I need a defensive backing part, so I’m working hard.”
The advantage of her doubles was that she could get help from her peers, she said.
Shin Yu-bin said, “When I fast, I feel like going to fight alone.메이저사이트
Shin Yu-bin, who overcame her injury, showed confidence in her current physical condition.
Shin Yu-bin said, “When she was sick, it hurt just to lift a racket, but now she is much better than before,” she said.
She continued, “She competes in a lot of international competitions, so I think all players get injured. I think she needs to work harder on management.”
The national team is currently focusing on physical training. Shin Yubin is also doing a lot of training from dawn to evening.
Shin Yu-bin said, “It is physically difficult, but I think positively thinking that it is helpful. I train from 6 am, train in the morning, train in the afternoon, and then train at night.”
She doesn’t have time to recover, but she confesses that she spends her personal time listening to songs and dancing.
Yubin Shin said, “I think these days she listens to ‘New Jeans’ ‘High Lip Boy’ a lot. She even secretly imitates the dance when she is alone,” she laughed.
Lastly, she asked her fans to support her as well.
“She will do well in the World Championships, so please support her a lot,” she said.
