The CWNU table tennis team won a victory that was achieved by men’s and women’s team together at Korea University Table Tennis League held at Jeonnam Hong-gil-dong Gym. Both teams from the same university winning a victory together are very uncommon and a great result. I met this great table tennis team captain Chae Yoo-na (Dept. of Physical Education)
Q. I heard that you won a victory in this championship, Congratulations!
Chae: Thank you. I won second place in this championship last year, so I am very happy that I won a victory this time. Also it is the first time in my athletic life that I won a victory together. Actually winning a victory together is difficult so I feel like getting double pleasure.
Q. Please introduce CWNU table tennis team.
Chae: Our table tennis team is composed of a men’s team and a women’s team. First introducing the women’s team, we have 7 members and their names are Han Sun-young (이름 형식), Chae Yoo-na, Lee Ye-eun, Park Hyo-won, Seo Eun-hee, Won Ji-eun, Kim Tae-yeon. Our team won a victory in the National Sports Festival, and National Table Tennis Championship of the President Flag. The men’s team has 5 members and their names are Jo Kyeong-hwan, Lee Seong-bae, Kim Dong-gu, Shin In-chul, Jun Jin-woo. This team, in the same championship personal doubles, Lee Seong-bae and Jo Kyeong-hwan won a victory and Kim Dong-gu and Shin In-chul player team won third place.
Q. What is difficult as a captain?
Chae: First I hold the post of captain because I’m the eldest, but leading the members is not easy for me. When they have another opinion or propensity, sometimes it doesn’t go my way. Like this situation, I’m so hard and tough. Also it’s so hard that I didn’t get a good result after I practiced hard. In that situation I feel sad and frustrated, but I still practiced hard for the next championship’s good result.
Q. What is the best feeling you get as a team?
Chae: Somehow, it will be the moment that we got a good result. That moment can’t be expressed in words. Also, I was so happy that I won a victory in this championship. I enjoy playing table tennis and I love my team members so I am happy when I exercise.
