Sandboard monster, roaring for 4 consecutive championships

Friends and best rivals of the same age who dominated high school wrestling finally clashed on the folk sandboard. Even in the final stage. The hero who roared at the end of pouring out all the energy he had been sucking on was the “monster” Kim Min-jae (21, Yeongam-gun Folk Ssireum Team).

Kim Min-jae won 3-1 against Seong-min Choi (Taean-gun Office) in the 2023 Mungyeong Jangsa Ssireum Competition Baekdu Jangsa (under 140kg) final match (5 matches, 3 wins) held at Mungyeong Gymnasium in Gyeongbuk on the 27th and climbed the flower palanquin. Kim Min-jae showed off his superpowers by winning 21 consecutive victories in the 4 folk wrestling competitions he participated in, all of which reached the top. Baekdu Jangsa 3 times, Cheonha Jangsa 1 time. 토토사이트

Kim Min-jae and Choi Seong-min were the players who commanded the high school sandboard until a few years ago. At that time, Choi Seong-min was ahead of Kim Min-jae as the strongest. It was Choi Seong-min who made his name first. In 2020, when he was a senior at Taean High School, he caused a stir by winning runner-up in the Cheonha Jangsa competition. It was the first time in 27 years since Baek Seung-il that a high school student reached the final of Cheonha Jangsa. Choi Seong-min immediately jumped into the folk stage the following year and won Baekdujangsa four times so far.

Kim Min-jae did not stand still. Kim Min-jae, who went to Ulsan University after graduating from Yeosu Technical High School, first climbed to the Baekdu Championship in the Dano Championship in June of last year when he was a sophomore, and even conquered the Cheonha Championship in November. It was the first time in 37 years since Lee Man-gi that the college student Cheonha Jangsa was held. The confrontation between Min-jae “Spear” Kim and Seong-min “Shield” Choi was so close that almost 1 minute of regular time was consumed in each round. Kim Min-jae, who won the round of 16 single-death match in the team event held as a rehearsal the day before, gave up the first round as a warning accumulation. However, after winning the second game with a snatch, he overturned the game by tripping Choi Seong-min, who was trying to be a wild badger, with an ankle brace in the third game, which went up to 30 seconds.

After the game, Kim Min-jae said with emotion, “Sung-min was one level higher in school and was my role model.” At the same time, he said, “I will challenge to continue the 100% win rate in the next tournament.”
