The national anthem echoed throughout the three days of fencing competition at the Hangzhou Asian

Games in Hangzhou, China. Women’s sabre national champion Yoon Ji-soo (30-Seoul City Hall) won

South Korea’s third gold medal of the Games. Yoon defeated Yao Yachi (27-China) 15-10 in the women’s

individual sabre final on Saturday to claim the gold medal.

Yoon Ji-soo

Is more associated with the team event than the individual competition. She was part of South Korea’s

first Asian Games gold medal in Incheon in 2014 and its second consecutive title in Jakarta-Palembang in

2018, and she played her part in the Korean women’s sabre team’s first Olympic team medal (bronze) in

Tokyo in 2021. But this is the first time she has won an individual gold medal at an international event.

It has been nine years since a Korean woman sabre athlete has won an individual gold medal at an Asian

Games since Lee Irjin (33) at Incheon 2014. 섯다 She defeated London 2012 Olympic gold medalist Kim Ji-

yeon (35-Seoul City Hall) in the final of that event. Yoon is three years younger than Irajin’s Busan counterpart Yang Woon-joong.

Playing in her first Asian Games final

Yoon scored six straight points from 2-2 to end the first period with an 8-2 lead. The silver medalist in the

individual event at the Jakarta-Palembang Games was visibly flustered. With the one-sided support of her

fans in Anbang, she managed to pull within 11-9 at one point in the second period, but Yun Jisoo

regained her pace and eventually closed out the match with five points. After securing the win, Yun removed her mask and roared on the piste.

The road to the final was not easy. Playing through knee pain, Yoon battled back from a 15-14 deficit against Paola Pliego (29-Uzbekistan) in her first match of the tournament in the Round of 16. Trailing 12-14, she scored three straight points to turn it around. In the semifinals, Yoon faced another Uzbek player, Zainab Dybekova (21). Dybekova had defeated Yoon in the round of 16 of the individual competition at the Tokyo Olympics. However, the result of this match was a 15-14 victory.
