It is also the first Korean diving world championship medal won at a world championship held overseas.

Suji Kim took third place with a total score of 311.25 points from the first to fifth periods in the women’s 3m springboard final at the 2024 World Championships Diving held at the Hamad Aquatic Center in Doha, Qatar on the 10th (Korean time).

Kim Su-ji, who tied for 4th place in her first period, rose to 3rd place in the second period with a great performance of ‘107B performance of difficulty 3.1, in which she jumps forward, extends her legs, and wraps with both hands in a pike motion for three and a half laps.’

Su-ji, who finished her performance without any mistakes, climbed to the podium by 8.3 points over 4th place Madison Kinney (27, Australia), who received a total of 302.95 points.

Thanks to Kim Su-ji, Korean swimming increased its previous World Championship medals to 7 (2 gold, 1 silver, and 4 bronze).

Management Park Tae-hwan ranked first in the 400m freestyle and third in the 200m at the 2007 Melbourne Games, and won the gold medal in the 400m freestyle in Shanghai in 2011.

In Gwangju in 2019, Suji Kim won a bronze medal in the women’s 1m springboard diving event.

Management Hwang Seon-woo (Gangwon Provincial Office) ranked second in the men’s 200m freestyle in Budapest in 2022 and third in Fukuoka in 2023.

Kim Su-ji took third place in Doha this year, making Korean swimming successful in winning a medal at the World Championships for the fourth time in a row.

In the management event starting on the 11th, Korean swimming is expected to win medals in the men’s 200m freestyle (Hwang Sun-woo) and the men’s 800m relay.

With Kim Su-ji presenting medals to the Korean team before starting her swimming career, Korean swimming came one step closer to achieving the first record of producing multiple medalists at a single world championship.

It is also noteworthy that the medal came from an ‘Olympic official event’.

The 3m springboard, which won a medal in Doha, is an official Olympic event and thus attracts a lot of attention.

Kim Su-ji placed 16th in succession in the 2022 Budapest and 2023 Fukuoka 3m springboard individual competitions, failing to advance to the finals.

This year, she placed third in the semifinals, reaching the finals for the first time and qualifying for the Paris Olympics, where she placed third in the finals to earn her medal.

Su-ji Kim suffered a torn cartilage in her left knee last December, but she suppressed the pain, saying, “It’s always fun for her to compete in international competitions.”

Her perseverance was transformed into a shining medal.

Before leaving for Doha, Kim Su-ji met said, “The biggest goal for the Doha Games is to advance to the 3m springboard finals and qualify for the Paris Olympics.”

“For me, who enjoys participating in international competitions, the Olympics are the biggest stimulus.

2012 “Participating in the Olympics for the third time, following London in 2021 and Tokyo in 2021, is a very important goal for my career,” he said.

Suji Kim exceeded her goal by winning the bronze medal.

Now Suji Kim takes a leap forward to ‘win the first Olympic medal in Korean diving history’.

In the final on this day, Chang Yani (22, China) won with 354.75 points, beating Chen Yiwen (24, China), who was aiming for her third consecutive win in this event.

Cheon Yi-won’s score was 336.60 points.

Yani Chang, who had won four gold medals at the World Championships only in synchronized competitions in which two people played together, enjoyed the joy of winning his first individual event.
