Lee Eun-ji, whom we met after the game, said, “I was worried about whether I would be able to do well in my first match at the Asian Games, but I am happy that I got off to a good start.”
Many officials were relieved that Lee Eun-ji played well in her first game.
While training for the Asian Games, he was diagnosed with frostbite while receiving cryotherapy treatment at the end of August.
Lee Eun-ji said, “I suffered an unexpected injury, but I tried to overcome it,” and “I resumed training 9 days after the injury, and this is how I participated in the Asian Games.
“I overcame it pretty well,” he said with a bright smile.
Eunji Lee is the number one female backstroker in Korea, holding the Korean record for the women’s 100m backstroke (1 minute, 00.03 seconds).
At the Fukuoka World Championships held last July,
he participated as a member of the 400m mixed medley relay and helped achieve a new Korean record (3 minutes 47.09 seconds).
At this year’s Hangzhou Asian Games, they will compete in the 50m backstroke, 100m, 200m, and mixed medley relay.
Eunji Lee pledged, “I will show you that I am getting better and better in the remaining games, including the 50m backstroke final this afternoon.”
