    Ryu Seungmin: Korea's Women's Team Can Threaten Japan



    https://japanese.joins.com/JArticle/276598
    <卓球>大韓卓球協会長「韓国女子代表は日本を脅かす」
    ⓒ 中央日報日本語版2021.03.16 12:05

    大韓卓球協会の柳承敏(ユ・スンミン)会長が2020東京オリンピックメディア懇談会で、韓国選手は好成績を出せるという希望を表した。

    柳承敏会長と金擇洙(キム・テクス)協会専務理事は15日、ソウル龍山(ヨンサン)ドラゴンシティホテルでメディア懇談会を開いた。

    柳会長は「日本はデータを重視するが、シン・ユビンの情報と成長の速度を看破できなかったはず」とし「今大会を見ながら女子団体戦も日本と対戦すれば今のメンバーでも(メダル獲得が)可能という気がした。団体戦は5セットで行われるため、女子代表チームも(日本を)脅かすことができるだろう」と予想した。

    特にシン・ユビンは、最近終わったWTTスターコンテンダー大会女子シングルスの16強で日本のエース平野美宇にセットスコア3-1で勝利した。またチョン・ジヒと組んだダブルスでも平野美宇-石川佳純を退けて金メダルを獲得した。

    金擇洙専務理事は「オリンピック団体戦は最初の競技がダブルスで、その後にシングルス4試合が行われる。息を合わせる時間が短かったシン・ユビン-チョン・ジヒが平野美宇-石川佳純に勝ったのは大きい。日本が中国を脅かす唯一の国だが、今大会で自信がついたはず」と話した。
    <Table Tennis> President of the Korea Table Tennis Association "Korea's Women's National Team Threatens Japan"
    Ⓒ Korea JoongAng Daily Japanese version 2021.03.16 12:05

    Ryu Seungmin, president of the Korea Table Tennis Association, expressed his hope at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Media round table that Korean players will be able to perform well.

    President Ryu Seungmin and Managing Director Kim Taeksoo held a media round-table conference at the Dragon City Hotel in Yongsan, Seoul on the 15th.

    "Japan attaches great importance to data, but Shin Yubin's information and the speed of growth should not have been deciphered," said President Ryu. "While watching this tournament, I felt that even the current members could (win medals) if they played against Japan in the women's team event. The team event will be best-of-5, so the women's national team could also threaten (Japan).

    In particular, Shin Yubin defeated Japanese ace Miu Hirano with a score of 3-1 in the round of 16 in the women's singles of WTT Star Contender, which ended recently. She also won the gold medal in doubles with Jeon Jihee, beating Miu Hirano/Kasumi Ishikawa.

    "In the Olympic team event, the first match is doubles, and followed by four singles. Shin Yubin/Jeon Jihee, who have paired a only short while, stand a big chance at defeating Miu Hirano/Kasumi Ishikawa. Japan is the only country that threatens China, but this tournament should have given us confidence," said Kim Taeksoo.

    Possible result:

    Korea v Japan
    Jeon/Shin v Hirano/Ishikawa 3-1
    Choi v Ito 1-3
    Shin v Hirano 3-1
    Jeon v Ito 2-3
    Choi v Ishikawa 3-2

    Rio 2016 semifinals deja-vu?
    Only, Germany didn't really announce their intentions prior to Rio, so maybe Ryu shouldn't have sounded the alarm on behalf of Japan.

    Interestingly enough, that report is not available on the Korean and Chinese editions of the said South Korean newspaper(1 of 3 biggest), which means it's aimed specifically at the Japanese audience.

    On a related note, RSM has bigger problems at hand, namely the hugely indebted KTTA due to the cancellation of WTTC Busan.

    [송지훈의 탁구·공·감] 국제대회 무산 후폭풍, 협회 혼자 뒷감당?
    [중앙일보] 입력 2021.03.18 00:03

    송지훈 기자

    “탁구협회장 재선 직후 제일 먼저 은행에 가서 20억원 대출 서류에 서명했습니다. 협회가 빚더미라는 걸 알면서 굳이 회장을 다시 맡은 건, 어떻게든 해결해야 한다는 책임감 때문입니다.”

    15일 만난 유승민 대한탁구협회장 겸 국제올림픽위원회(IOC) 위원은 “협회의 대출금 이자만 매년 5000만원에 이른다. 원금은 손댈 엄두조차 내지 못한다. 기댈 곳 없는 체육 단체에는 한없이 버거운 상황”이라며 한숨을 내쉬었다. 활기차던 유 회장 얼굴에 드리운 그늘은 그대로 굳어버린 듯했다.

    탁구협회가 ‘20억 빚쟁이’가 된 건 코로나19 팬데믹으로 취소된 ‘하나은행 2020 부산세계탁구선수권대회’ 때문이다. 대회는 당초 지난해 3월 21일 부산 벡스코에서 개막할 예정이었다. 코로나19로 어찌해볼 도리 없이 주저앉았다. 6월로, 다시 9월로, 그리고 올해 2월로, 세 차례나 개막을 미루며 어떻게든 대회를 치러보려 했다. 역부족이었고, 결국 좌초했다. 한국 탁구 100주년(2024년)을 앞두고, 국제대회 유치를 통해 ‘제2의 탁구 붐’을 기대했던 탁구협회의 꿈은 물거품이 됐다.

    대회 준비 때는 ‘주최 측’을 자처한 이가 넘쳤다. 부산시는 탁구협회와 조직위원회를 공동 구성했다. 하나은행은 20억원 규모의 타이틀 스폰서십을 약속했다. 지난해 2월 부산에서 열린 타이틀 스폰서 협약식 때는 오거돈 당시 부산시장 겸 공동조직위원장이 “부산 세계탁구선수권대회를 ‘국제도시 부산’의 발판으로 삼겠다”고 공언했다. 참석한 이호성 하나은행 부행장은 “단순한 대회 후원 개념을 넘어 탁구팬과 선수단에 종합 금융서비스를 제공할 것”이라고 목소리를 높였다.

    대회가 취소되자 다들 발 빼기에 바빴다. 정부(26억6000만원)와 부산시(23억원)는 지원금 회수 조치에 나섰다. 하나은행은 “스폰서십 협약식은 했지만, 계약서는 쓰지 않았다”며 후원금 지급을 거부했다. 후속 조치부터 채무까지, 뒷정리는 오롯이 탁구협회 몫이 됐다.

    탁구협회는 하나은행이 약정 후원금 중 일부라도 지급하길 바랐다. 유승민 회장은 “사전 제작 유니폼과 기념품을 팔아보려고 노력 중이다. 모든 물품에 후원사(하나은행) 로고가 박혀 있어 쉽지 않다”고 하소연했다. 하나은행은 대회 준비 과정의 이벤트에도 스폰서십 권리자로 함께했다. 적지 않은 홍보 효과를 누렸다. 그런 만큼 이제라도 탁구협회 짐의 일부라도 나눠 진다면, 코로나 시대 상생 사례라 할 것이다.

    정부, 그리고 부산시의 책임 있는 자세가 필요하다. 더구나 정부는 ‘북한 초청’, ‘남북 단일팀’ 등을 거론하며 남북 화해 분위기 조성에 틈나는 대로 대회를 활용했다. 부산시는 더 말해 무엇하겠나. 그런데도 모두가 뒷감당을 탁구협회에 떠넘긴 채 모르쇠로 일관한다.

    곧 부산시장 보궐선거가 열린다. 여야 후보자가 오거돈 전 부산시장 겸 대회 공동조직위원장의 남은 임기를 맡겠다고 나섰다. 가덕도 신공항만 중요한 게 아니다. 대회 무산에 따른 뒤처리는 부산시가 향후 스포츠 이벤트를 개최할 만한 자격이 있는 도시인지를 가늠할 잣대가 될 것이다.

    [Song Ji-hoon's Table Tennis·Gong·Gam] After the fall of the international competition, the Association alone handles the storm?
    Enter [JoongAng Ilbo] 2021.03.18 00:03

    Reporter Song Ji-hoon

    “I went to the bank immediately after being re-elected as the chairman of the Table Tennis Association and signed the 2 billion won loan document. Knowing that the association is a pile of debt, the reason why I took over as chairman again is because of my responsibility to resolve it somehow.”

    Yoo Seung-min, chairman of the Korea Table Tennis Association and a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), met on the 15th said, “The association's loan interest alone amounts to 50 million won every year. The principal cannot even be touched. "It's an endlessly difficult situation for a sports group that has no place to lean on," he sighed. The shadow on Chairman Yoo's lively face seemed to have hardened as it was.

    The reason why the Table Tennis Association became a “2 billion debtor” was due to the “Hana Bank 2020 Busan World Table Tennis Championships,” which was canceled due to the Corona 19 pandemic. The competition was initially scheduled to open at BEXCO, Busan on March 21 last year. With Corona 19, he collapsed with no way to do anything. In June, again in September, and in February of this year, I tried to play the contest somehow, delaying the opening three times. It wasn't enough, and eventually got stranded. Ahead of the 100th anniversary of table tennis in Korea (2024), the dream of the Table Tennis Association, which expected a “second table tennis boom” by hosting international competitions, has become a fuss.

    When preparing for the competition, there were overflowing people who claimed to be "organizers." Busan City jointly formed an organizing committee with the Table Tennis Association. Hana Bank promised a 2 billion won title sponsorship. At the title sponsorship agreement ceremony held in Busan in February last year, the then Mayor of Busan and co-organizing chairman Oh Geo-don professed, "We will use the Busan World Table Tennis Championships as a foothold for the'International City of Busan'." Ho-sung Lee, Vice President of Hana Bank, raised his voice, saying, "We will provide comprehensive financial services to table tennis fans and players beyond the concept of simple tournament sponsorship."

    When the tournament was canceled, everyone was busy withdrawing. The government (2.66 billion won) and the city of Busan (2.3 billion won) have taken measures to recover the subsidy. Hana Bank refused to pay the sponsorship, saying, “The sponsorship agreement was held, but the contract was not written.” From follow-up to debt, the cleanup was entirely up to the Table Tennis Association.

    The Table Tennis Association wanted Hana Bank to pay some of the contract sponsorship. Chairman Seung-min Yoo said, “I am trying to sell pre-made uniforms and souvenirs. It is not easy because the logo of the sponsor company (Hana Bank) is embedded on all items,” he complained. Hana Bank also joined the sponsorship holder at the event during the preparation process. It enjoyed considerable promotional effect. As such, if even now, if even a part of the table tennis association gym is divided, it would be a case of win-win in the Corona era.

    The government and Busan city need a responsible attitude. In addition, the government used the competition as it was possible to create an atmosphere of reconciliation between the two Koreas by addressing “North Korea invitation” and “South-North single team”. What more will Busan city do? Nevertheless, all of them have left behind the table to the table tennis association, and are consistent with it.

    The Busan mayor's by-election will soon be held. The ruling and opposition candidates announced that they would assume the remaining term of office as former Busan mayor and co-organizer of the competition. Gadeok is not the only airport that matters. Post-treatment following the loss of the competition will serve as a benchmark for determining whether Busan is a city that is qualified to host future sporting events.

    “패기있게 덤비겠다… 중국이 오히려 부담감 클 것”
    [도쿄 카운트다운] 탁구 남자단체 금 노리는 이상수·정영식·장우진
    김상윤 기자
    입력 2021.03.22 03:00 | 수정 2021.03.22 03:00

    도쿄올림픽 탁구 종목에는 금메달 5개가 걸려 있다. 한국 대표팀의 전략 종목은 이상수·정영식·장우진 3인방이 나서는 남자 단체전이다. 개최국 일본은 물론이고 ‘절대 1강’으로 꼽히는 중국을 넘본다. 오상은 남자 대표팀 감독은 “1차 목표는 메달권 진입이고, 결승에서 중국과 한번 승부를 펼쳐보고 싶다”고 했다.

    작년 초 9회 연속 올림픽 진출을 함께 일궜던 대표팀 선수들은 최근 각자 다른 방식으로 도쿄올림픽 출전을 확정 지었다. 세계 랭킹이 12위로 국내 선수 중 가장 높은 장우진이 자동 선발됐고, 이상수는 선발전 1위를 차지했다. 정영식이 경기력향상위원회 추천으로 막차를 탔다.

    ◇중국 아성 넘본다

    진천선수촌 입촌을 앞둔 대표팀 선수들은 최근 본지 통화에서 “서로를 믿는다”고 했다.

    “상수 형, 영식이 형을 믿어요. 첫판에서 이겨줄 거라고. 형들 덕분에 저도 자신 있어요.”(장우진)

    “우진이가 그래요? 하하. 우린 반대인데. 우리가 잘하면 그다음에 우진이가 잠재력을 터뜨려 끝내버릴걸요.”(이상수)

    도쿄올림픽부터 탁구 단체전 방식이 바뀐다. 원래 1~5경기 중 세 번째가 복식이었으나 이제 복식을 먼저 치른 뒤 2~5경기 단식으로 진행된다. 첫 경기로서 복식의 중요성이 커졌고, 단식에 나설 순서를 놓고 치열한 수 싸움이 예상된다. 이상수·정영식 조는 최근 카타르 도하에서 열린 세계탁구(WTT) 스타 컨텐더에서 우승하며 남자 복식 세계 랭킹 1위에 올랐다. 이들이 첫 경기를 잡아내고, 장우진이 제2경기 단식에서 상대 에이스를 꺾어 기선을 잡는 게 대표팀이 생각하는 ‘베스트 시나리오’다.

    대표팀의 목표는 중국을 넘어 금메달을 목에 거는 것이다. 정영식은 “중국과 제대로 붙어보고 싶다. 유남규 감독님, 유승민 대한탁구협회장님의 뒤를 잇고 싶다”고 했고, 장우진은 “중국이 오히려 부담감이 클 것이다. 우린 패기 있게 덤비면 된다”고 했다.

    ◇3인 3색, 마음은 하나

    세 선수는 오른손잡이, 셰이크핸드 그립, 공격형이란 점에서 닮았다. 플레이 스타일은 눈에 띄게 다르다. 대표팀 맏형 이상수는 공격형이다. ‘공격 80, 수비 20’이라고 할 정도로 공세를 펼쳐 상대를 무너뜨린다. 그와 오랫동안 호흡을 맞춘 정영식은 침착함이 돋보인다. 다른 선수보다 화려함은 덜하지만, 끈질기고 안정적이다.

    한국 탁구는 2016 리우올림픽에서 ’28년 만의 노 메달'이란 아픔을 겪었다. 이상수와 정영식은 당시 단체전에서 베테랑 주세혁과 함께 나섰으나 준결승에서 중국에 무릎 꿇었고, 동메달 결정전에서 독일에 졌다. 이상수는 “리우올림픽은 탁구 실력이 늘게 한 전환점이었다”며 “지금도 그때 경험을 토대로 매 경기를 풀어간다”고 했다. 정영식은 “첫 올림픽에서 좌절을 겪은 뒤 전략·심리·체력이란 3요소를 설정하고 끊임없이 노력했다. 리우 때보다 나아진 걸 스스로 느낀다”고 했다.

    셋 중 가장 어린 장우진은 과감한 공격력에 순간순간 발휘되는 센스까지 갖춰 팀의 차세대 에이스로 떠올랐다. 그만큼 국제대회에서 상대의 집중 분석 대상이 되기도 했다. 그는 “부담을 느낀 적도 있지만, 지금은 자신감을 되찾았다”고 했다.

    ◇코로나 딛고 올림픽 정조준

    다른 종목과 마찬가지로 탁구도 코로나로 부침이 많았다. 올림픽을 앞두고 다른 나라 전력을 미리 엿볼 기회였던 부산 세계선수권대회가 취소됐다. 유승민 탁구협회장이 중국과 합동 훈련 등도 추진했지만 결국 무산됐다. 선수들은 “한국에서 세계선수권이 열리는 것에 대해 기대가 컸던 만큼 아쉬움도 크다”고 입을 모았다.

    남자 대표팀 감독으로 올림픽을 준비하던 김택수 전무는 지난해 말 유 회장의 부름을 받아 협회 집행부로 자리를 옮겼고, 그와 수십년간 탁구계에서 동고동락한 오상은 감독이 대표팀 지휘봉을 이어받았다. 오 감독은 “우리 선수들은 공격력에선 밀리지 않지만, 수세에 몰린 상황에서 견디는 능력이 부족한 것이 약점”이라며 “올림픽을 앞두고선 수비하다가 공세로 전환하는 훈련을 주로 할 예정”이라고 했다.

    각 선수에게 코로나로 1년 미뤄진 올림픽에 임하는 각오를 물었다.

    “제 마지막 올림픽이 될 것 같아요. 재작년부터 애 보느라 고생 많았던 아내에게 메달을 꼭 가져다주고 싶어요.”(이상수)

    “추천 선수로 어렵게 기회를 얻은 만큼 더 책임감을 가져야죠. 준비 기간이 길었던 만큼, 후회 없도록 준비하겠습니다.”(정영식)

    “단체전 멤버가 정해진 뒤 책임감이 더 생기고 한 팀이란 느낌이 듭니다. 첫 올림픽이지만 두려움을 깨볼게요.”(장우진)
    “I will fight with ambition… China would rather be burdened.”
    [Tokyo Countdown] Lee Sang-soo, Jung Young-sik and Jang Woo-jin are aiming for gold in table tennis men’s group
    Reporter Kim Sang-yoon
    Enter 2021.03.22 03:00 | Revision 2021.03.22 03:00

    Five gold medals are at stake in the table tennis event of the Tokyo Olympics. The strategic sport of the Korean national team is a men's team competition with three members Lee Sang-soo, Jung Young-sik, and Jang Woo-jin. Not only the host country, Japan, but also China, which is regarded as the “absolute first-class”. The men's national team manager Oh Sang-eun said, "The first goal is to enter the medal zone, and I want to play against China once in the final."

    The players of the national team, who made their ninth consecutive Olympic advancement at the beginning of last year, recently confirmed their participation in the Tokyo Olympics in different ways. Jang Woo-jin, the highest among domestic players with the world ranking of 12th, was automatically selected, and Lee Sang-soo took the first place in the selection. Jeong Young-sik got on the last train with the recommendation of the Competition Improvement Committee.

    ◇Let's go over the Chinese castle

    The national team players who are about to enter the Jincheon Athlete's Village said, "I believe in each other" in a recent phone call.

    “I believe in Sangsoo and Youngsik. I'll win the first edition. Thanks to the hyungs, I am confident too.” (Jang Woo-jin)

    “Is Woojin like that? haha. We are the opposite. If we do well, then Woojin will unlock his potential and end it.” (Lee Sangsoo)

    Starting from the Tokyo Olympics, the table tennis team competition has changed. Originally, the third out of matches 1-5 was doubles, but now doubles are played first, followed by singles in 2-5 matches. As the first match, the importance of doubles has grown, and fierce number fights are expected over the order in which they will go to singles. Lee Sang-soo and Jung Young-sik Jo recently won the World Table Tennis (WTT) Star Contender in Doha, Qatar, and rose to the top of the men's doubles world rankings. The ‘best scenario’ that the national team thinks is that they catch the first game and Jang Woo-jin beats the opponent's ace in the second game's singles.

    The national team's goal is to win a gold medal over China. Jeong Young-sik said, “I want to stick with China properly. Director Yoo Nam-gyu and Yoo Seung-min, the chairman of the Korea Table Tennis Association, said, "I want to succeed." We just have to fight with ambition.”

    ◇3 people, 3 colors, one heart

    The three players are similar in that they are right-handed, shakehand grip, and offensive type. The play style is noticeably different. Lee Sang-soo, the eldest of the national team, is offensive. He says “attack 80, defense 20,” so he strikes out and destroys his opponent. Jeong Young-sik, who has been breathing with him for a long time, stands out with his calmness. He is less glamorous than other players, but he is persistent and stable.

    Korean table tennis suffered the pain of'No Medal in 28 Years' at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Lee Sang-soo and Jung Young-sik went on to join veteran Ju Se-hyuk in the team match at the time, but knelt to China in the semi-finals and lost to Germany in the bronze medal match. Lee Sang-soo said, "The Rio Olympics was a turning point that helped improve my table tennis skills," and said, "I still solve every game based on my experience at that time." Jeong Young-sik said, “After experiencing frustration at the first Olympics, I set the three elements of strategy, psychology, and physical strength, and made an effort constantly. He feels for himself that he is better than when he was in Rio.”

    Woojin Jang, the youngest of the three, emerged as the team's next-generation ace with a sense of moment-to-moment with bold attack power. As such, it was also the subject of intensive analysis of the opponent in international competitions. He said, “I have felt the burden, but now I have regained my confidence.”

    ◇ Overcoming the Corona and aiming for the Olympics

    Like other sports, table tennis had a lot of ups and downs due to corona. Ahead of the Olympics, the Busan World Championship, which was an opportunity to glimpse other countries' power in advance, was canceled. Chairman of the Table Tennis Association Yoo Seung-min also promoted joint training with China, but eventually failed. The players said, “As we were excited about the opening of the world championship in Korea, we are regretful too.”

    Kim Taek-soo, who was preparing for the Olympics as the men's national team coach, was called by Chairman Yoo at the end of last year, and moved to the executive department of the association. Coach Oh said, “Our players are not backed by offensive power, but their lack of ability to withstand the defensive situation is their weakness.” “We will focus on training to switch from defense to offensive before the Olympics.”

    Each athlete was asked about his determination to face the Olympics that had been delayed for one year due to the coronavirus.

    “I think it will be my last Olympics. I really want to bring a medal to my wife, who has had a hard time watching babies since last year.” (Lee Sang-soo)

    “As I got a difficult opportunity as a recommended player, I have to take more responsibility. Since the preparation period was long, we will prepare so that we do not regret it.” (Jeoung Young-sik)

    “After the team members are decided, I have more responsibility and I feel like a team. It's my first Olympics, but I'll break my fears.” (Jang Woo-jin)
