Men’s Curling Gangwon Provincial Office has risen to the top of the National Winter Sports Festival in 12 years.
The Gangwon-do Provincial Curling Team (coach Lee Ye-joon, skip Park Jong-deok, third Jeong Young-seok, second Oh Seung-hun, lead Seong Ji-hoon) defeated Gyeongbuk Gyeongil University 4-2 in the men’s general final of the 104th Winter Sports Festival held at Uijeongbu Curling Center in Gyeonggi Province on the 12th. This is the first time in 12 years since winning the tournament in 2011.
The characteristic of the curling event at the National Winter Sports Festival is the ‘single round tournament’. It is difficult to find competitions that enter the tournament directly without preliminaries, even if the scope is expanded overseas. Gangwon Provincial Office won the preliminaries against the Gwangju City Sports Association 36-2온라인카지노, and then won the quarterfinals against the Incheon Metropolitan City Curling Federation 14-3. In the semifinals, the current national team, Seoul City Hall, was defeated 7-3. Coach Lee Ye-joon said, “Last year, the players must have been under pressure in this competition because they did not perform satisfactorily in the selection competition or the president’s cup competition. I will go to the world championships,” he said. Meanwhile, Gangneung City Hall ‘Team Kim’, who participated in the women’s general division, lost 4-10 in the quarterfinals against Gyeonggi Provincial Office ‘5G’.
