Difference between Cho Kwang-hee and Jang Sang-won is 0.189 seconds.

Cho Kwang-hee and Jang Sang-won recorded a time of 1 minute 39.138 seconds in the preliminaries held the previous day, taking first place overall.

In the preliminaries, the Kazakhstan group was 0.842 seconds behind in second place, but in the finals, the rankings were reversed.

This competition also serves as the final Asian qualifier for the Paris Olympics.

In the men’s two-person kayak event, only the first-place team receives a ticket to Paris.

Cho Kwang-hee, a leading Korean canoeist who participated in both the 2016 Rio de Janeiro and 2020 Tokyo Olympics, was unable to participate in three consecutive Olympics.

Cho Kwang-hee’s main event, where her instantaneous explosive power is her strength, is originally the 200m single-seater kayak.

In this sport, she participated in two Olympic Games and won two consecutive Asian Games (Incheon 2014, Jakarta and Palembang 2018).

However, when the single-person kayak 200m race was not held at the Paris Olympics, Cho Gwang-hee paired up with Jang Sang-won to try to change the event.

The two participated in last year’s Hangzhou Asian Games, which can be considered a ‘mid-term inspection’ stage, and won a silver medal in the two-person kayak 500m with a time of 1 minute 37.690 seconds.

He succeeded in shortening the record at this competition held about six months later, but unfortunately missed out on a ticket to Paris.

Kwanghee Cho won the 200m single-person kayak event at this competition.
