Veteran wrestler Kim Jin (Jeungpyeong-gun Office) roared by conquering the Baekdu level of folk wrestling after 1 year and 4 months.

In the Baekdu Jangsa (under 140 kg) deciding match (5 rounds, 3 wins) of the 2023 Chuseok Jangsa Ssireum Competition held at the Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi Province on the 17th, Kim Jin made a great comeback by first losing two matches to Oh Jeong-moo (Mungyeong City Hall) and then coming down to win the third round. He unfolded and lifted the bull trophy.

Kim Jin reached the top of the Baekdu weight class a year and four months after the Goesan competition in May of last year, winning the ninth Baekdu title in his personal career. This is his tenth win in total, including one World Champion title. Kim Jin, who celebrated his first son’s 100th birthday, enjoyed double joy by winning today.

In the deciding match that day, Kim Jin tried to attack Oh Jeong-moo first, but was kicked back and was pushed to the edge, losing two rounds. He achieved balance by winning the third and fourth rounds with a push and leg kick, respectively, and finally decided the winner with a quick chop in the fifth round. Oh Jung-moo fell backwards and attempted to overturn the match until the end, but was unable to overturn the outcome of the game.

Oh Jeong-moo, who changed his name from Oh Jeong-min this year, caused a stir by defeating ‘monster’ Kim Min-jae (Yeongam-gun Folk Ssireum Team), who boasts a 95% winning rate, 2-0 in the quarterfinals, and then defeated ’emerging powerhouse’ Choi Seong-min (Taean County Office) in the semifinals. He dreamed of winning the Baekdu weight class for the fourth time in 2 years and 10 months, but was blocked by Kim Jin’s skill. Kim Min-jae lost 4 consecutive championships and 6 gold medals this year.안전놀이터

In the Geumgangjangsa (Under 90kg) final held the previous day, Lim Tae-hyuk (Suwon City Hall) defeated teammate Kim Ki-soo 3-1 and won the championship a year and eight months after the Lunar New Year’s Day competition in January last year. Lim Tae-hyuk, who won the Chuseok competition six times alone, increased his record for most wins in active duty to 21. In particular, by winning the Geumgang class 19 times, he beat Choi Jeong-man (18 times, Yeongam-gun Folk Ssireum Team) and once again holds the record for the most wins in this weight class. In addition, he won the Taebaek-Geumgang combined championship twice, widening the gap with Noh Beom-soo (Ulju County Office), who was close to chasing the record for the most wins in active service. Noh Beom-su has won a total of 19 times, including 18 times at Taebaek and once at Geumgang.
