As the national coach for the Korean national air rifle team, Coach KIM Woo Young won two gold medals at the World Championships in September and two QPs for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics with bronze medals, and has achieved great accomplishments such as winning gold medals in team competition. Japanese National Team Members Takashi Matsumoto and Ayano Shimizu, both of the Self-Defence Forces Physical Training School, and Naoya Okada of ALSOK participated in the joint training camp to learn the secrets of strength, thereby deepening the exchange. November and December are the off season in South Korea with no competitions, and during the winter, training is organised with a focus on returning to the basics such as rifle maintenance, equipment replacement, posture review, enhancing rifle power, and physical strengthening. Both coaches and athletes deepened their friendship with the Japanese team and promised to maintain a friendly relationship. We would like to continue holding joint training camps with the Korean national team in the future.
