‘Chulgak’ Kim Eui-yeon (29, Pocheon City Office) won his third title of the season in the men’s 400 meters at the 2023 Yecheon KTFL National Unemployment Athletics Games.

Kim’s victory marked her third consecutive podium finish, following her triumphs at the Iksan KTFL National Unemployed Athletics Competition (March) and KBS Boat Competition (May).

“It is encouraging that (Kim) has been steadily improving her time and has entered the 46-second range,” said Choi Sung-ho, head coach of Pocheon City. If she is selected for the Asian Games with this trend, I think she can break into the 45s,” said Choi. “We will work harder with her to achieve this 메이저놀이터.”

In the men’s and women’s sprint hurdles, Kim Kyung-tae and Ryu Na-hee (Ansan City Hall) took the top spots side by side. Kim Kyung-tae won the men’s 110m hurdles final in a personal best time of 13.84 (previously 13.87), ahead of Kim Joo-ho (Commerce – 13.89) and Kim Byung-joon (Changwon City Hall – 14.12), and secured his 12th consecutive title after winning nine titles last season.

In the women’s 100m hurdles final, Ryu Na-hee clocked 13.78 seconds to win her first gold medal of the season, beating ‘opponent’ Cho Eun-joo (Yongin City Hall – 13.81 seconds), who had lost to her at both the Iksan and KBS Bae competitions.

In the women’s 100m final, ‘twin sisters’ Kim Da-eun and Kim So-eun (Gapyeong County Office) split the gold and silver medals with 11.86 and 12.11 seconds respectively. Kim was also the last runner in the 400-meter relay with Jeon Ha-young, Kim So-eun, and Min Ji-hyun, helping Gapyeong County win the title in 46.29 seconds, ahead of Siheung City Hall (46.88 seconds).
