[Asian Games] Oh Sang-uk, Who Stopped Gu Bon-gil From Losing 4 Times in a Row, “I’m Nervous Remembering the Loss From 5 Years Ago”
“I only think about the gold medal rather than ‘punishment’…
It’s a good opportunity to measure ‘combat ability’ ahead of the Olympics.”
Oh Sang-uk (Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall), who won the gold medal by defeating Gu Bon-gil (Korea Sports Promotion Foundation),
who reigned as the ‘strongest’ in the men’s saber fencing individual event at the Asian Games,
recalled the ‘1-point loss’ from their meeting five years ago at the final hurdle.

Sang-uk Oh held a press conference after winning the men’s saber individual event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Hangzhou University of Electronics Gymnasium in China on the 25th, saying, “I was very nervous because I remember losing in the finals at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games,” and “I was very nervous in the second half of the game.”
“I’m glad that it seems to have worked out well,” he said.
Oh Sang-uk, the silver medalist in the individual event at the Jakarta Games,
defeated Gu Bon-gil 15-7 in the final on this day and won his first Asian Games individual gold medal.
Oh Sang-uk reached the finals five years ago when he debuted on the Asian Games stage,
but at the time, he was unable to overcome his senior Gu Bon-gil’s stronghold and had to be satisfied with second place.
He decorated the ‘finals return match’ with a landslide victory,
putting a stop to Gu Bon-gil’s challenge of winning his fourth consecutive individual title.
Oh Sang-uk said, “I didn’t focus on (Gu Bon-gil’s) record of four consecutive losses.
“I felt at ease because I met Korean players in the finals and secured first and second places,” he said.
“Rather than seeking revenge for the last Asian Games,
I just thought I wanted to win in this situation and win a gold medal.”
He had surgery due to an ankle injury in November last year.
The individual gold medal was even more meaningful to Oh Sang-uk as it was a competition he entered after a quick rehabilitation after receiving it.
Oh Sang-uk said, “I didn’t have much time to recover after being seriously injured,
but I was able to gain confidence because my teammates told me, ‘You’re good, you can do it.'”
“Thanks to that, I was able to play with confidence,” he said.
He said, “It was a good opportunity to measure my ‘combat ability’” ahead of the Paris Olympics,
which is less than a year away.
“I was very nervous, but I am even more honored to be able to win a gold medal because there are not many opportunities to compete in such an environment.”
