Kim Seo-young plays the role

Kim Seo-young (29, Gyeongbuk Provincial Office), a leading female swimmer in Korea, started strongly toward advancing to the finals of the 200m individual medley world championships for the fourth time in her career.

Seoyoung Kim hit the mark with a record of 2 minutes 13.85 seconds in the women’s 200m individual medley preliminaries at the 2024 International Aquatics Federation World Championships held at the Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar on the 11th.

Among the 25 people who participated in the preliminary round, Kim Seo-young, who participated in the last 3 groups, ranked 10th and earned a ticket to the semifinals, which was given to a total of 16 people.

Kim Seo-young, who was the first Korean athlete to compete in the business management event at the Doha Games that started on this day, passed the preliminaries with ease and showed herself as the eldest member of the business team.

The semifinals of the women’s 200m individual medley will be held at 1 a.m. on the 12th, Korean time.

Seoyoung Kim advanced to the finals of the World Championships in this event three times in a row, from the 2017 Budapest Games to the 2019 Gwangju Games and the 2022 Budapest Games, and ranked 6th.

At last year’s Fukuoka competition, he passed the preliminaries in 2 minutes, 11.50 seconds and 14th place, but finished 13th in the semifinals and failed to advance to the finals.

In the women’s 200m individual medley at the Hangzhou Asian Games, where she competed later, she took the bronze medal with a respectable record of 2 minutes, 10.36 seconds, signaling a revival.

Kate Douglas (USA) took first place overall with an overwhelming record of 2 minutes 10.01 seconds, while Sydney Pickrem (Canada, 2 minutes 10.97 seconds) and Marit Steenbergen (Netherlands, 2 minutes 11.45 seconds) took second place. Finished the race in 3rd place.

Douglas, the gold medalist in the 200m women’s individual medley at the 2023 Fukuoka Games, will attempt to win the title for the second time in a row. 19가이드03
