It is too early to be reassured, there is a possibility of Chinese territoryIn international competitions such as the Olympics and Asian Games, controversies about biased decisions often arise. Since the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics short track is the most recent example, there is a strong perception that China is particularly severe.
However, looking at the case of Kim Yuna taking the silver medal and Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova taking the gold medal in figure skating at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics due to unconvincing decisions (grading), it is not necessarily a Chinese problem.
In fact, we also made biased decisions in order to collect more medals as the host country at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Although time has passed and a movie has been released that tells the story of the difficult life of the athlete who won the gold medal due to a biased decision, there is no doubt that it was wrong.
Before the opening of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which was postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, what the Korean athletes paid most attention to other than performance was China’s territoriality, or biased judgment. Team leader Choi Yoon repeatedly requested the national team coaching staff of each sport to read the competition outline and be familiar with the recently changed rules and regulations in order to avoid providing an excuse for controversy over biased decisions.
There was no decision that caused controversy until the 27th, whether it was because China had changed from before or because the Korean team had prepared well. Of course, this tournament, which promoted the ‘smart’ Asian Games, introduced video assistant referee (VAR) in so many events that it could not even be compared to the Jakarta and Palembang games five years ago. By applying advanced technology, the sensitivity of the scoring sensors for each event has increased, reducing the scope for subjective judgment to intervene.메이저사이트
Even in sports where the referee still has the possibility of influencing the outcome of the game, such as taekwondo, judo, and fencing, there has yet to be any scene that could be called a biased decision.
Among the Korean players who faced and lost to Chinese players, none expressed dissatisfaction with the decision, even indirectly. Kim Ha-yoon, who maintained the pride of judo, defeated the Chinese athlete in the final and won the gold medal. Has China changed?
But it seems too early to be relieved. If the Korean soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, advances to the quarterfinals, there is a high possibility that it will face China on the 1st of next month. And there is no VAR in soccer in this tournament. It seems that ‘judgment’ on changes in China should be reserved until then.
