Foot Volleyball Heading For Globalization, National Sports Are Heating Up
The heat of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games continues in South Jeolla Province. The venue for the National Sports Festival (National Sports Festival, 13th-19th) is being held.
In this competition, stars that shine “Hangzhou” compete for the honor of their region, not the Taegeuk mark.
Hwang Sun-woo (Gangwon Provincial Office), Kim Woo-min (Gangwon Provincial Office), “Walkle Jumper” Woo Sang-hyuk (Yongin City Hall), three-time archery champion Il Sung-hyun (Korea National Sports University), and Ansan (Gwangju Women’s University), the gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, will also participate. Jeon Woong-tae of the modern pentathlon, Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall), Koo Bon-gil and Kim Jung-hwan (Korea Sports Promotion Foundation), and Kim Jun-ho (Hwaseong City Hall), who won four consecutive fencing sabre team events, will also meet this time.
Although it is an exhibition event, there are events that draw attention (foot volleyball, Hapkido). Among them, Korea’s unique sport, “foot volleyball,” will be held on the 15th after the men’s and women’s preliminaries on the 14th at Jinnam Gymnasium in Yeosu, Jeollanam-do. Following last year, the brilliant skills of the participating players will heat up the court this year.

Foot volleyball, which is actively moving for globalization in the powerhouse of sports for all, is the second year of the national sports demonstration event. The Korean Foot volleyball Association (Chairman Hong Ki-yong) expects to adopt an official event after the National Sports Festival.
Foot volleyball, a “native” brand, is moving vigorously for globalization while strengthening its domestic base by hosting the Korean League.
In July, the first World Foot volleyball Championship was held in Yanggu, Gangwon-do, and 11 countries from around the world (Czech Republic, Ireland, Iraq, Bulgaria, Pakistan, Hungary, Laos, Thailand, Slovakia, Romania, and South Korea) participated, and the Korean national team showed off its best skills and became the first gymnasium.
As the scope of jokgu, which has a solid status as a lifestyle sport, expands toward elite sports and globalization, the government and the Korea Sports Council are also increasing their interest. 토토사이트
