Shin Yu-bin and Lim Jong-hoon clashed with Shunke Dogami and Miyu Kihara of Japan in the round of 16 mixed doubles at Hangzhou Archer Canal Sports Park Gymnasium in China on the 28th, winning the game score 3-1 12-10, 6-11, 11-9, 11-9. 토토 This led to the quarterfinals between Shin Yu-bin and Lim Jong-hoon.
Shin Yu-bin came out as a runner in the first and fourth singles in the women’s table tennis team semifinals on the 25th, losing to Japan’s Hina Hayata and Miu Hirano. In the end, the Korean women’s table tennis team failed to advance to the final and had to settle for the bronze medal.
Shin reportedly shed tears after the game. At the age of 19, he played an overwhelming ace and lost two games alone, so it was inevitable. On top of that, there was also a noise from the Chinese cheering squad during the team event.
At that time, a team event between China and Thailand was held at the same time right next to the area where the match between Korea and Japan was held. Chinese spectators chanted ‘jayo’ one after another. Even when Shin Yu-bin served, the voices of the Chinese cheering squad continued.
In response, KBS commentator Oh Sang-eun said, I’m playing a match now, but it’s too loud. You can’t do this. It’s interfering with the game, he said in a fit of anger. Nevertheless, Shin Yu-bin quietly vowed to do well in the next game without giving any excuse.
Shin Yu-bin is stronger in doubles than in singles. In the women’s doubles, she teamed up with Jeon Ji-hee to win a silver medal in women’s doubles at the World Championships in May. In the semifinals, the team defeated the then world No. 1 Sun Yingsa and Wang Man Yu of China with a set score of 3-0.
He also boasts perfect chemistry with Im Jong-hoon in mixed doubles. He won the mixed doubles of the 2023 World Table Tennis Contender Rio de Janeiro held in August.
Finally, Shin Yu-bin began his mixed doubles schedule with Im Jong-hoon on the 27th. It was followed by a 3-0 11-6 11-3 11-1 shutout victory over Nepal’s Sanog Kapali-Navita Ryresta group. It was a victory that could soothe the pain of the team event.
However, they met the Japanese team in the quarterfinals. I could recall the memories of that time because I lost to Japan in the semi-finals of the team tournament in a row. There was also a high possibility of falling into crisis because he is Shin Yu-bin, who has not much experience in comprehensive international competitions yet.
However, Shin led the game with a confident forehand drive. He also minimized his mistakes with a calm return. His perfect chemistry with Im Jong-hoon was also brilliant. He was not swayed even in the match, and beat the Japanese group 3-1 to repay the team’s loss to the semifinals.
Shin Yu-bin, who is called a table tennis prodigy and stands tall as the ace of Korean table tennis. In the team event, they suffered from China’s cheering and pressure for non-manners. However, he took a pleasant revenge on Japan in his main event, mixed doubles. Shin Yu-bin is growing to the next level after overcoming the ordeal.
