It’s the expected home ‘swagger’.
The Asian Games men’s soccer team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, arrived in Hangzhou from Jinhua on Monday. After a day’s rest, the team trained at the Huanglong Sports Center Auxiliary Stadium in Hangzhou on Monday at 6 p.m. (local time) to prepare for their quarterfinal match against China. It was the first training session in Hangzhou. Defender Hwang Jae-won (Daegu FC) was scheduled to be interviewed.
It was a pre-announced open training session. At first, the reporters were not stopped by the Asian Games Organizing Committee officials, who rushed to the open gate and refused to let them in. They refused to let us in without any explanation.
In the early days of the Asian Games, there were a few altercations between organizers and journalists during the traffic jams, but this did not happen once the Games began in earnest, and it was not limited to journalists. As I walked around to find another door, I realized that even the team’s luggage was not allowed through. Team support staff had been handing their luggage over the fences and barriers, which were securely locked. The support staff who couldn’t get in were carrying the luggage over the fence.바카라
“Is this the beginning of the end?” was a common comment among officials. Fortunately, the team’s luggage and supplies were later brought into the training center after a series of twists and turns, and the training went off without a hitch. However, the press was not allowed in until the end. Football federation officials tried to find a way in, but were unable to do so. The organizers demanded that we leave without any explanation.
“It’s a difficult situation. We’ve had arguments about access before. We’ve had arguments over access before. This is the first time they’re not letting us in at all. It’s difficult. There are different stories from different sides,” he explained. In the end, Hwang Jae-won’s interview turned into a laughable “skit” with a cage.
The team will remain in Hangzhou for the remainder of the tournament until the final. The team has been rotating between three or four training venues set by the organizers. The teams do not have the right to choose the training grounds. This ‘posturing’ is likely to continue in the future. Hwang Sun-hong has been experiencing the ‘attitude’ from the first day in Hangzhou.
