Swimming Kim Woo-min’s freestyle 400m world No. 1 → No. 4

April 24, 2024 | by

In order for Kim Woo-min (23, Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province) to win the gold medal at the 33rd Paris Summer Olympics in France, the record of winning the 21st International Swimming Federation World Championships may not be enough.

According to the 2023-24 world ranking updated by the U.S. “Swimsworm” on April 23 (Korea time) with the sponsorship of the Australian and British-based global swimming brand “Speedo,” Kim Woo-min is fourth in the men’s 400m freestyle.

▲ Elijah Winnington (24, Australia), the gold medalist at the 19th World Championship in 2022, ▲ Samuel Short (21, Australia), who won the 20th World Swimming Championship in 2023, ▲ Lucas Mertens (23, Germany), the runner-up at the World Championship two seasons ago, ranks first and third.

Indoor management events at the Paris Olympics will be held from July 28 to August 5. The 400-meter freestyle is the first day of the competition. Kim cannot let his guard down just because he won the World Championship this year.

Kim Woo-min won the 2024 World Championship with a time of 3:42:71. However, he was overtaken one after another by posting ▲ Elijah Winnington 3:41:41:41 ▲ Samuel Short 3:41:64 ▲ Lucas Mertens 3:41:98.

Of course, Kim Woo-min’s experience of winning Elijah Winnington silver and Lucas Mertens bronze at the World Swimming Championships this season is a valuable asset to compete for the Paris Olympics. 밤알바

At the 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China in 2023, Kim continued his strides by winning his first 400-meter freestyle major championship title. This is why expectations and attention are focused on the results of the Summer Olympics.
