Joo Jae-hoon and So Chae-won (Hyundai Mobis) lost 158-159 to India's Oyas Praveen Deotale and Jyoti Surekha Bennam in the final of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games compound archery mixed event held at the archery range at Puyang Inhu Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 4th. Won a silver medal. **[온라인카지노사이트](https://www.casinositetop.com)** Unlike recurve, compound is known to have a much higher level of difficulty in winning medals in international competitions because the players' skills are more standardized. In particular, it is more difficult to win a medal in mixed competitions because the best male and female athletes must work together. This silver medal has greater meaning for Joo Jae-hoon. This is the result of hard work, even temporarily giving up one's livelihood. Joo Jae-hoon is not a professional athlete, but an ordinary office worker. He is working as a police officer at Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Company. I started archery in 2016 when I was a college student and by chance joined a compound archery club in Gyeongsan, Gyeongsangbuk-do. [Joo Jae-hoon](https://writeupcafe.com/yoon-dong-hee-the-hope-of-the-national-baseball-team/), who discovered his talent late by achieving overwhelming results in club competitions, won the Taegeuk mark in 2023 after five attempts. However, in order to enter the Jincheon Athletes' Village and compete in international competitions, he had to give up his job as a police officer. He took a leave of absence from his job and began his career as a national team member in earnest. Since he was on unpaid leave, he had to convince his wife and other family members as well. The result was a silver medal. When Joo Jae-hoon was asked what he would choose between a promotion and a silver medal, he said, "It's really hard to choose," but ultimately answered, "The silver medal." ‘Isn’t this a medal in exchange for a year’s salary?’ When asked by reporters, he said, "That's true. But I have no regrets." Joo Jae-hoon said that he learned foreign players' posture, equipment tuning methods, and mental management know-how through [YouTube](https://app.simplenote.com/p/l1cFkL). He consistently participated in hobby competitions, practicing what he learned and making it his own. Joo Jae-hoon said, “(Unlike professional players), he was given a wide range of options, so I think he was able to do many things to catch up with professional players.” Because he combines work and training, he overcame the inevitable shortfall in training time compared to regular athletes by speeding up his training. Joo Jae-hoon said, "I trained for about 2 to 3 hours after work, and I saved time by shooting an arrow at three times the speed of [professional athletes](https://alchetron.com/Tron/Korean-Baseball-Wins-17-0-Cold-Game-Against-Thailand-5218268-UW). It usually takes 15 minutes to shoot 6 arrows, but I shot them in 5 minutes. It was my own compressed training method. "I think I've done enough training on my own," he said. Joo Jae-hoon does not plan to compete for the national team until this year. Joo Jae-hoon said, “If I say ‘I will represent the national team’ again next year, I will be fired from the company,” and added, “I will think again when it becomes an official sport in 2026.”
