The men’s high jump qualifying round for the Budapest World Championships will be held on the 20th at 5:35 pm in Korea time at the Budapest National Track and Field Stadium in Hungary.
A total of 37 players were named on the list of entrants for the men’s high jump.
The 37 players will be divided into two groups to compete, and if the final automatic entry record exceeds 2m30 or if they are in the top 12 regardless of group, they will advance to the finals starting at 2:58 am on the 23rd.
If the top 12 are covered before attempting the 2m30, the qualifying round ends.
At the 2022 Eugene World Championships, the automatic entry record for the finals was 2m30, but the preliminary round ended with 13 finalists, including a tie for 12th place in the 2m28.
At last year’s World Championship preliminary, Woo Sang-hyeok passed 2m17, 2m21, 2m25, and 2m28 all in the first round, advancing to the final with just four jumps.
In the finals, she overcame 2m35 and came second.
It was the best performance ever at the Korean track and field world championships, surpassing Kim Hyun-seop, the bronze medalist in the men’s 20km walking race at the 2011 Daegu Games.
Woo Sang-hyeok aims to win the world championship for the first time in Korean track and field history in Budapest this year.
Experts also pick Barshim, who won three consecutive World Championships, Jubon Harrison (USA), who won the Diamond League three times this year, and Woo Sang-hyeok as candidates for the championship.
Armed with thorough preparation and confidence, ‘Smile Jumper’ Woo Sang-hyeok took a ‘memorial photo’ with coach Kim Do-gyun at the National Athletics Stadium in Budapest on the 19th with a bright expression.
