[Seoyoung Kim advances to World Aquatics Women's 200m individual medley semifinals]

Baek In-cheol, Park Jeong-won, and Choi Dong-yeol also passed.

Korean women's swimming star Seoyoung Kim (30, Gyeongbuk Provincial Office) took her first step toward advancing to the finals of the 200m women's individual medley at the World Championships for the fourth time in her career.

Seoyoung Kim hit her mark with a time of 2 minutes 13.85 seconds in Group 3 of the women's 200m individual medley preliminaries at the 2024 International Swimming Federation World Championships held at the Earthfire Dome in Doha, Qatar on the 11th.

She placed 3rd in her group, and Kim Seo-young, who ranked 10th out of 25 people in the preliminaries, won a ticket to the semifinals, which is given to the top 16 players in the preliminaries.

Kim Seo-young, who was the first Korean athlete to race in the management event at the Doha World Championships that started on this day, saved the face of her eldest sister by successfully passing the preliminaries.

Kim Seo-young aims to advance to the finals in the women's 200m individual medley semifinals, which will be held early in the morning on the 12th, Korean time.

The 200m individual medley is Seoyoung Kim's main event. She has made it to the finals three times in a row at the World Championships in Budapest 2017, Gwangju 2019, and Budapest 2022. In her finals she placed 6th.

At last year's World Championships in Fukuoka, Kim Seo-young placed 14th in the preliminaries with a time of 2 minutes 11.50 seconds and advanced to the semifinals, but was ranked 13th in the semifinals with a time of 2 minutes 12.91 seconds and did not advance to the finals where the top eight compete.

At the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held in September last year, she showed signs of a rebound, winning a bronze medal with an even better time of 2 minutes, 10.36 seconds.

Kate Douglas (USA) took first place overall with a time of 2 minutes 10.01 seconds, and Sydney Pickrem (Canada) took second place with a time of 2 minutes 10.97 seconds. Marit Steenbergen (Netherlands) was third with 2 minutes 11.45 seconds.

Douglas, who won the women's 200m individual medley at the Fukuoka World Championships last year, is aiming for her second consecutive victory.

Following Kim Seo-young, Korean players succeeded in passing the preliminary round.

Baek In-cheol (24, Busan Jung-gu Office), who won a surprise gold medal in the men's 50m butterfly at the Hangzhou Asian Games, became the first Korean athlete to advance to the semifinals of the men's 50m butterfly at the World Championships.

Baek In-cheol, who raced in Group 5 of the preliminary round, took the touchpad in 23.34 seconds. Baek In-cheol, who placed 4th in his group and 8th out of 67 people in the preliminaries, advanced to the semifinals as the top 16 players.

This is 0.19 seconds short of the Korean record of 23.15 seconds that he set at the National Sports Festival last October.

In last year's Fukuoka World Championship preliminaries, Baek In-cheol, who placed 23rd with a time of 23.50 seconds and failed to advance to the semifinals, enjoyed the joy of passing the preliminaries this time.

Choi Dong-yeol (25, Gangwon Provincial Office), the bronze medalist in the men's 50m breaststroke at the Hangzhou Asian Games, placed 14th in the 100m breaststroke preliminaries with a time of 1 minute 00.15 seconds, earning a ticket to the semifinals where the top 16 will compete.

Following last year's Fukuoka competition, this is the second consecutive 100m breaststroke semifinalist.

Park Jeong-won (17, Sacred Heart Girls' High School), who participated in the women's 100m butterfly preliminaries, ranked 16th with a time of 59.32 seconds and took the last train to the semifinals.

On the other hand, Han Da-kyung (24, Jeonbuk Sports Council), who participated in the women's 400m freestyle preliminaries, finished in 24th place with a time of 4 minutes 18.38 seconds and failed to advance to the finals among the top eight.

The men's national team, swam by Yang Jae-hoon (Gangwon Provincial Office), Ji Yu-chan (Daegu Metropolitan City Hall), Lee Yu-yeon (Goyang City Hall), and Kim Min-seok (Busan Swimming Federation), recorded a time of 3 minutes 17.11 seconds in the 400m relay preliminaries, ranking 12th out of 19 countries. I ended up being ranked 8th and was unable to get a ticket to the finals.
