Kim Su-ji and Kwon Ha-rim are performing in the women’s synchro diving 3m final at the 2024 International Aquatics Federation World Championships held at the Hamad Aquatic Center in Doha, Qatar, on the 7th (local time).
Kim Su-ji (Ulsan Metropolitan City Hall) advanced to the women’s 3m springboard diving semifinals at the 2024 World Aquatics Championships, giving her a green light to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Suji Kim ranked 15th out of 53 participants with a total score of 257.55 points in the first to fifth periods in the women’s 3m springboard diving competition held at the Hamad Aquatic Center in Doha, Qatar on the 8th (Korean time).
Kim Su-ji, who won the right to advance to the semifinals given to the top 18, entered the semifinals of this event for the third time in a row, following the 2022 Budapest and 2023 Fukuoka competitions.
Kim Su-ji won the 1m springboard bronze medal at the 2019 Gwangju Games, making her name as the first Korean diving medalist at the World Championships.
He also increased his chances of qualifying for the Paris Olympics.
The women’s 3m springboard is an official Olympic event, and depending on your performance in this competition, you can earn a ticket to Paris.
Regarding the qualifications for the Paris Olympics in the individual diving event, the International Aquatics Federation decided to distribute 12 tickets for last year’s Fukuoka World Championships, 5 tickets for each continental championship, and 12 tickets for this year’s Doha World Championships.
In diving, qualifications for the Paris Olympics are distributed to the National Olympic Committee (NOC) rather than to individual athletes.
Each country can take up to two Olympic qualification spots in the women’s 3m springboard, and China, Italy, and the United States have already secured two Olympic qualification spots each in the women’s 3m springboard at last year’s Fukuoka Games.
In the women’s 3m springboard semifinals at this year’s Doha Games, China and Italy each have two runners, and the United States has one runner, so if Kim Su-ji ranks in the top 12 out of 13 people excluding them, she will get a ticket to Paris.
The women’s 3m springboard semifinals are scheduled to take place at 4:02 p.m. on the 9th.
Meanwhile, Kwon Ha-rim (Gangwon Provincial Office), who also competed, ranked 43rd with 204.95 points and was eliminated from the preliminary round. 스포츠토토
