Nervous rehabilitation last year. Expectations for medals
in the Asian Games are still high . Shin Yu-bin (19, Korean Air), who is called the future of table tennis in Korea, had a nightmare last year. At the end of the 2021 World Table Tennis Championships in Houston, he suffered a wrist injury and went to the operating table twice, and spent a year undergoing tedious rehabilitation. She’s spent more time in her hospital than holding the racquet she loves. What bothered Shin Yu-bin even more was the anxiety that she might not be able to regain her pre-injury skills. She was initially confident of her comeback when she was injured, but after her injury recurred, she lost that confidence as well. Shin Yu-bin found her way through sports that do not use her wrists. She built her body with weight training and running, to prevent her wrists from spreading to other parts of the body. Shin Yu-bin’s efforts showed results on the international stage. Shin Yu-bin took first place in the World Table Tennis (WTT) contender singles and mixed doubles held in Nova Gorica, Slovenia last November. Although it is not a stage where the best players fight, he gradually regained confidence and was able to raise the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) ranking to 19th and regain the national team qualification for 2023-2024.
Shin Yu-bin’s rising trend was also confirmed in the Asian regional qualifiers for the 2023 Durban World Table Tennis Championships in Doha, Qatar. Shin Yu-bin secured her ticket to the finals by beating Thailand’s Paranang Orawan 4-3 in the women’s singles group 1st place match on the 10th. Following the women’s doubles and mixed doubles, she successfully qualified for all events, raising expectations for the World Championships in Durban in May.바카라
Shin Yu-bin stayed in the round of 64 due to an injury in this tournament two years ago.
Her performance at the World Championships is also a barometer for determining the color of medals at the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September. In the table tennis world, it is evaluated that if Shin Yu-bin regains her skills that she showed at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and 2021 Asian Championships, she will not even win a medal.
However, Shin Yu-bin is not yet completely free of her injuries, so she is cautious. She still feels pain when she swings her racquet, so she has to compete on her own while having a conversation with her body.
Shin Yu-bin’s father, Shin Soo-hyeon, said, “I’m careful because her injured parts don’t recover overnight,” but also added, “Yubin is doing her best to prepare for her this year without regrets. Please support her fans as well.”
