Busan World Table Tennis Sighs Over ‘Table Tennis Gate’… Players say, ‘We are One Team’

Men’s national team wins 3-1 over Poland in opening match of tournament

The staff of the BNK Busan Bank 2024 Busan World Table Tennis Championships Organizing Committee have one thing to worry about.

This is none other than the so-called ‘Table Tennis Gate’ in the soccer world. 온라인카지노

Table Tennis Gate is an incident in which conflict erupted while some players were playing table tennis on the eve of the semifinal match between the national soccer team and Jordan at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup, leading to physical conflict.

The Busan World Table Tennis Championships organizing committee has put a lot of effort into promoting this tournament as it is the first world championship to be held in a home during the 100th anniversary of Korean table tennis.

However, after the table tennis scandal broke out, when you search for ‘table tennis’ on an internet portal site, only the names of soccer players such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) and coach Jurgen Klinsmann come up.

This is the case even after the Busan World Table Tennis Championships opened on the 16th.

The organizing committee’s public relations officer sighed heavily, saying, “This is a really difficult situation.

There is no way to do anything.”

However, if the table tennis national team shows a good performance in the competition, sports fans’ interest will gradually shift to ‘real table tennis.’

In the opening match of the tournament this morning, the Korean men’s national team started the challenge with ease by winning against the ‘ambushed’ Poland with a match score of 3-1.

The national team players and coach Joo Se-hyuk, who achieved a pleasant victory, cheerfully fielded somewhat mischievous questions about the table tennis gate in the mixed zone (joint coverage area).

Among soccer and table tennis fans, a photo combining Jang Woo-jin’s body with Lee Kang-in’s face became a hot topic.

When I asked coach Joo Se-hyuk if he had seen the photo, he laughed out loud and said, “We laughed a lot among ourselves.

Wouldn’t this be a good way to promote the tournament?” ‘Main character’ Jang Woo-jin was also happy.

It is said that he came across the photo suddenly through a social media message sent by a Chinese fan.

Jang Woo-jin burst into laughter, saying, “I heard that China will be in more trouble because of the table tennis scandal, but when I looked at the picture, it was me.

Why did they bother to include me…”

Jang Woo-jin confidently answered the question, ‘Is the national table tennis team the original team?’
