Sanghyuk Woo won this competition last year by exceeding 2m29.

The 2023 Seiko Golden Grand Prix was held at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, but this year it will be held at the Tokyo National Stadium, the ‘venue of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.’

Woo Sang-hyuk took fourth place at the Tokyo Olympics by surpassing 2m35, becoming a world-class jumper.

Since then, he has built a brilliant career, including winning the 2022 World Indoor Championships (2m34), second place in the Outdoor World Championships (2m35), and winning the 2023 Diamond League Final (2m35).

Currently, Woo Sang-hyuk is training in Hong Kong with the goal of winning a medal at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Since it is possible to win a gold medal at the Paris Olympics by exceeding 2m 37, which is higher than the Korean record of 2m 36 that he holds, he is increasing his momentum to exceed 2m 37.

Woo Sang-hyuk, who has not yet competed in an outdoor game this year, plans to participate in two or three actual games at home and abroad before the Seiko Golden Grand Prix opens. 온라인 슬롯
