From men’s and women’s handball to archery, foreign leaders lead Tai Chi warriors

The foreign coaches leading Team Korea at the Hangzhou Asian Games come from different countries

and backgrounds, but they all have the same goal: to put Korean athletes on the top of the podium.

The Xiaoshan Gymnasium

Of Zhejiang Normal University on Friday during the first round of the women’s handball group stage

match between South Korea and Uzbekistan at the Hangzhou Asian Games. 카지노사이트 A foreigner

stood in front of the South Korean team’s bench, waving his arms and shouting “Attack!” and “Defense!” in

Korean. He also clapped when a goal was scored, saying, “Great!” Henrik Signell (47-Sweden) is the head coach of the South Korean team.

South Korean women’s handball

Has won two gold, three silver, and one bronze medal at the Olympics, but hasn’t had much success on

the international stage since the 2010s. In response, the Korean Handball Federation (HF) appointed a

foreign coach to strengthen its international competitiveness. In April of this year, Sigel became the

second foreigner to take the helm of the Korean women’s national handball team. “(Coach Signell) has

experience as a coach of both the men’s and women’s national teams and club teams, so he has a

variety of tactics, and he is eager to understand Korea and incorporate European styles,” said an

association official. Handball has also entrusted the men’s national team to “rebuilding specialist” Hollando Preistas (58-Portugal).

Among the ball sports, the longest-serving foreign manager of a Korean national team is women’s

soccer head coach Colleen Bell (62-England). 온라인카지노 Bell has been in charge of the women’s

national soccer team since 2019 and has adapted to life in South Korea to the point where she uses Korean for most of her communication instead of English.

South Korea’s national archery team

One of the strongest in the world, also has a foreign coach. Rio Wilde (50-USA) is the head coach of the national compound team. Most people are familiar with recurve archery, which involves pulling a bowstring with your arm, and compound archery, which involves a pulley at each end. Unlike recurve, which is an Olympic sport, South Korea does not have a single athlete in the top 10 in the world for both men and women in compound. That’s why they brought in Wild, who was ranked No. 2 in the world in compound in 2013. At the Asian Games, there are five gold medals up for grabs in both recurve and compound.

In artistic swimming, where South Korea has been barren, coach Oksana Pysmena (51-Ukraine) is credited with taking the national team to the next level. Canoeing coach Oleksandr Siukhov (34-Ukraine) and kayaking coach Dimitar Ivanov (48-Bulgaria) are also working to improve the Taegeuk Warriors’ performance.

Women’s national volleyball

Coach Cesar Hernández González (46-Spain) will be looking to redeem himself at the Games. Since Cesar took over in 2022, the Korean women’s volleyball team has gone 5-38 (11.6% winning percentage). “If we don’t qualify for the Paris Olympics, I will take responsibility,” Cesar said, but the team lost all seven of its qualifying matches on Thursday.

In sports, it’s common for athletes to become coaches after their playing days are over, so it’s not uncommon for coaches to be older than their players, regardless of sport or nationality. However, Mano Andrea (39-Italy), who leads the contact bridge team, is more than 14 years younger than the average age of the national team players (53.1).

Of the 223 managers and coaches representing South Korea at the Asian Games, 17 are foreigners, according to the Korean Sports Ministry. Sixteen of the foreign coaches are from North America or Europe, but badminton coach Ronnie Agustinus, 45, is an Indonesian national who may be rooting for his country to lose at the Games. 카지노사이트존
