The youngest international rowing referee in Asia has been produced in Korea. The main character is Kim Jung-ah (25) referee.

The Korean Rowing Association (hereafter referred to as the Rowing Association) announced that referee Kim, who obtained her referee license while working in the rowing club at Korea University, has become the youngest international rowing referee in Asia.

He obtained the qualification by passing the international referee test held in Nagoya, Japan for two days from December 17 last year (2022) supervised by the International Rowing Federation (FISA). As a result, Korea has a total of 11 international referees, producing Asia’s youngest referee this year, following the existing 10 international referees.

It is the second largest number in Asia after Japan (14) and India (11). Referee Kim said through the Rowing Association, “Roaring, which involves cutting through water under the hot sun, is not only nature-friendly, but also an extreme sport in which one has to overcome one’s limits each time.” I think I gained strength through adjustment,” he said. 토토사이트

Judge Kim is about to enter the Department of Korean-French at the Graduate School of Interpretation and Translation at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. He added, “My dream is to become a freelance interpreter and translator, actively participate in international competitions for the development of domestic rowing, and ultimately compete as an Olympic referee.”

The Rowing Association emphasized, “We will continue our efforts to produce international referees to strengthen sports diplomacy through international referee activities.”
