Hwang Sun-woo, who placed 11th out of 67 people with a time of 1 minute 46.99 seconds in the preliminaries, increased his speed in the semifinals and easily advanced to the finals.

The men’s 200m freestyle final begins at 1:02 a.m. on the 14th, Korean time.

After the semifinals, Hwang Sun-woo said through his management company All That Sports, “I was worried a lot during the preliminaries because my physical condition was not as good as I thought, but in the semifinals, I was more satisfied with my record and race,” and “I advanced to the finals of the World Championships for the third time in a row.

“So, I have a strong desire to get on the podium for the third time in a row.

I want to do well in the final race based on what I have accumulated during the month-long training camp in Australia,” he said.

Sunwoo Hwang took second place (1 minute 44.47 seconds) at the 2022 Budapest competition and third place (1 minute 44.42 seconds) at the 2023 Fukuoka competition.

He set a new Korean record every time he competed in the 200m freestyle finals at the World Championships.

The current Korean record is 1 minute 44.40 seconds, set by Hwang Sun-woo when he won the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games last fall.

If the Korean record is broken at this year’s Doha Games, it will also be possible to surpass the Asian record (1 minute 44.39 seconds) held by Sun Yang (China).
