The Doha World Championships were held from the 2nd to the 19th of this month, and the management event began on the 11th. Diving and artistic swimming athletes who completed their schedules earlier have already returned home. The most brilliant achievement was the ‘golden duo’ that won the gold medal. [Kim Woo-min](https://guidetoiceland.is/traveler-profiles/cristellecruz-two/will-t1s-circus-work-against-the-gen-g) won a surprise gold medal in the men's 400m freestyle final, giving Korean swimming its first World Championships gold medal in 13 years since Park Tae-hwan in the same event at the 2011 Shanghai Games. Although many of the world's top athletes did not participate in this competition in preparation for the Paris Olympics, Kim Woo-min was the first to touch the pad in the 400m freestyle, where most of the strong athletes participated. Sun-Woo Hwang won the men's 200m freestyle and finally collected a gold medal in this event, following a silver medal at the 2022 Budapest Games and a bronze medal at the 2023 Fukuoka Games. Kim Woo-min, Hwang Sun-woo, Lee Ho-jun (23, Jeju City Hall), Yang Jae-hoon (25, Gangwon Provincial Office), and Lee Yu-yeon (23, Goyang City Hall) combined their efforts to win a silver medal, the first team medal in Korean swimming history, in the men's 800m relay. Last month, the relay team, which completed four weeks of intensive training in Gold Coast, Australia, achieved the result of winning a medal together. At the Doha World Championships, the Korean management team achieved its best performance ever by winning two gold medals and one silver medal. Korea, which previously won two bronze medals in diving, finished the competition in 8th place overall with two gold, one silver, and two bronze medals. Korean swimming, which had never even ranked 10th overall, entered the 'quarterfinals' of the World Championships. There were quite a few athletes who did not stand on the podium, but achieved valuable achievements that will remain in Korean swimming history. [Sun-woo Hwang](https://65e146d0751d2.site123.me/blog/another-great-record-from-choi-jeong-eun) became the first Korean athlete to advance to the finals of the 100m freestyle finals and finished in 5th place, his highest ranking. Hangzhou Asian Games gold medalist Baek In-cheol (23, Busan Jung-gu Office) became the first Korean athlete to reach the finals in the men's 50m butterfly and finished 7th. Lee Joo-ho (29, Seogwipo City Hall), the eldest member of the Korean management team, took 5th place in the 200m backstroke final, recording the highest ranking in Korean backstroke history. Park Soo-jin (24, Gyeongbuk Provincial Office) became the first Korean athlete to advance to the finals in the women's 200m butterfly since Ahn Se-hyun at the 2017 Budapest Games and placed 8th. The players who returned to Korea on this day will rest for a while and then begin preparations for the 2024 National Management Team selection match, which will open at the Gimcheon Indoor Swimming Pool on the 22nd of next month.
