Park Mi-seong will participate in the women’s 100m freestyle preliminaries at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games Swimming Management held at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center swimming pool in Zhejiang, China, on the 26th.
It has been about four years since the World Military Athletics Championships held in Wuhan,
China in October 2019 that a North Korean swimmer has participated in an international competition.
The International Aquatics Federation recognizes records set at the Military World Championships as official records.
Park Mi-sung set a North Korean record in the women’s 50m freestyle of 26.31 seconds at the Military World Championships in Wuhan four years ago.
At the Russian national competition held in Russia in May 2019, she also set the North Korean record (58.28 seconds) for the women’s 100m freestyle.
Park Mi-seong will also compete in the 50m freestyle on the 28th and the 50m butterfly on the 29th.
At the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, she only competed in the women’s 50m freestyle and ranked 17th with a time of 27.07 seconds.
Lee Hye-kyung (18), a member of the General Association of Koreans in Japan (Chongryon),
will compete in the women’s 100m butterfly (27th), 50m freestyle (28th), and 50m butterfly (29th) events.
Hyekyung Lee made her international debut at the 2018 Hangzhou Short Course (25m) World Championships,
where she placed 46th in the 100m backstroke (1:05.53) and 25th in the 200m butterfly (2:18.63).
After that, there is no record of participation in international competitions.
Most of the North Korean athletes participating in the Asian Games are participating in an international competition for the first time or competing in an international competition for the first time in 4 to 5 years since 2018 or 2019.
North Korea’s swimming management is at the ‘lowest level’ in Asia.
