Cadet Asian Championships

North Korean Cadets Shine in Continental C'Ships

By United World Wrestling Press

NUR-SULTAN, Kazakhstan (July 9) -- Wrestlers from D.P.R. Korea had a strong performance in women's wrestling at the Cadet Asian Championships, capturing two gold medals and three medals overall. The four-day event concluded Sunday in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

Winning gold medals for North Korea at the Cadet Asian Championships were Jin Hyang JANG (43kg) and Ji Hyang KIM (49kg), while Jin A KIM (40kg) earned a bronze medal. 
 


The North Korean side was boosted by recent assistance they received from United World Wrestling's developmental program "Technical Assistance for Competitions." The program allowed for three young athletes to compete in the championships and also stay for an additional week to attend the "More than Medal" Asia. 

"We are very happy to see such positive results," said Deqa Niamkey, UWW Director for Development. "Wrestling deserves to be represented by every nation and to see the joy on these athletes faces means we are on track."


Prior to this year, North Korea had not won a medal at the Cadet Asian Championships in women's wrestling since 2016 when MyongGyong WON captured a gold medal at 40kg and UnHui HWANG claimed a silver at 43kg.
