“I am the right person for the IOC Sports Commissioner”… 5 candidates

Five candidates, Jin Jong-oh (진종오), volleyball’s Kim Yeon-kyung (김연경), golf’s Park In-bee (박인비), taekwondo’s Lee Dae-hoon (이대훈) and badminton’s Kim So-young (김소영), are running for IOC sports commissioner.

They attended an interview with the evaluation panel for the selection of IOC Athletes’ Commissioners at the Olympic Parktel in Songpa-gu, Seoul, on Tuesday.Archer Oh Jin-hyuk, who was initially considered to run, withdrew.

One of the candidates will be selected this month.

The criteria include athletic achievements, including Olympic results, and the ability to work internationally, including speaking foreign languages.

In terms of Olympic achievements, shooting “legend” Jin Jong-oh, who has won four gold medals, is the clear favorite.

“I have 20 years of experience in the national team,” he told reporters during the interview, “and many of my friends around the world are now leaders or executives, so I firmly believe that my friends will be there for me.”

In terms of national recognition, Kim is highly regarded.

“Unlike other candidates, I’m a team athlete. I’ve been a national team captain for a long time, and I’ve also been a captain overseas, so I’ve been trying to build bridges to solve unreasonable things for the athletes.” “I think I’m good at problem solving,” she emphasized.

Park In-bee deserves a lot of credit for her stature and recognition in the sport. She has been living abroad since childhood, so her English is particularly good.

“Golf is a very popular sport,” said Park, who spoke in fluent English during the interview. If you ask her, ‘What sports have you played recently,’ you will know.” “I think the advantage of popular sports is great. Even at the Tokyo Olympics, NBA player Pau Gasol was the top vote-getter.”

Two of the youngest candidates, Lee Dae-hoon and Kim So-young, have served as athletes’ commissioners for their respective sports’ governing bodies, the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) and the Badminton Federation (BWF).

“I told them that if I was selected, I would support every taekwondo athlete in the world to be selected,” says Lee. As I am the youngest of the candidates, I will be able to work well with the younger athletes.”

“As an active athlete and BWF Athlete Commissioner, I think I would be able to hear the voices of the athletes closest to the field and deliver them well,” said Kim So-young.

The one thing the candidates have in common is the English language. 안전카지노사이트
