South Korean women’s sport climbing sensation Seo Chae-hyun won a silver medal at the Asian Games after rain prevented her from competing in the final against Japan’s Ai Mori.
The women’s sport climbing combined final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games was not held today (July 7) at the Yangshan Sport Climbing Center in Kirqiao, Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province, China, due to rain.
Because Seo finished the semifinals in second place, she also finished in second place according to the competition rules.
In fact, Seo and Mori had the same semifinal score of 199.73 points, but the semifinal rankings were split between Mori in first place and Seo in second place.
This is due to the rules of the competition, which state that if the semifinal scores are the same, the qualifying scores will be used to determine the ranking.
In the preliminaries, Mori took first place with a total of 196.0 points and Chaehyun Seo took second place with a total of 176 points.
As long as you finish in the top 8, your semi-final ranking only determines the order in which you climb the wall and does not affect your final ranking.
However, due to the rain that drenched the Yangsan Sport Climbing Center, qualifying scores determined the final standings.
Sasol, who won a silver medal in the women’s combined at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, where sport 토토사이트 climbing was first recognized as an official sport, was only able to place fifth this time around.
“I wanted to have a fun competition in the final, but it’s a shame I didn’t get a chance to challenge for the title,” she said.
“In November, the Asian qualifiers for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be held,” she said, “and I will definitely try to get a ticket to the Olympics then and do better at the 2024 Games.”
