YU (President CHOI Oe-chool) won the championship cup at the 2nd Korean Sport & Olympic Committee’s National Jangsa Ssireum Competition. 


 The YU Ssireum Team (Coach HEO Yong) won the team event at the National Jangsa Ssireum Championship held at the Beolgyo Sports Center in Boseong-gun, Jeollanam-do on the 16th and 17th. After becoming the first champion in the first competition held last year, they won the competition and achieved the second consecutive title.


 There was a difficult process for YU to reach the final. In the match against Dankook University, they won with 4:3 after a hot competition that went all the way to the 7th game, defeated Daegu University with 4:2 in the quarterfinals, and Inje University with 4:3 in the semifinals to advance to the final. In the final, with a tight 3-3 score against Kyungnam University, HONG Ji-eun (3rd year, Physical Education) defeated the opponent and won the championship.


Captain KIM Min-jae (4th year, Department of Physical Education) of the team said, “I am grateful to the players who worked together and the parents who supported each competition. YU Wrestling Team will train harder in this season with the goal of winning three gold medals.”


 Coach HEO Yong of the team, who led YU to the championship and received the Outstanding Coach Award, said, “I am grateful to Coach LEE Seung-ho for doing his best always to guide the students, the university officials who supported us to concentrate on training, the parents who always support us, the Alumni Association of the team, and the Sponsorship Advisory Committee. I will work with the players to help the Ssireum Team, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, show even more outstanding skills.
