The first player from Korea to make it to the Diamond League Finals is Woo Sang-hyuk.
Woo Sang-hyuk enjoyed his match with Australia’s Hamish Kerr, playing a delightful game of banter.
Starting at 2m 15, Woo was the only one to make it through 2m 20 and 24 without a single failure.
Woo roared after crossing 2m 28, which he had failed twice before, in the third period.
He could hardly contain his emotions as he dramatically succeeded in his last attempt at 2m 31.
After failing to clear 2m 33, Woo tried to raise the bar to 2m 35 as Bashim and Kerr cleared 2m 33 side by side.
Both attempts ended in failure, but with the disappointment of the World Championships behind him, Woo waved to the crowd.
With 2m 31, Woo finished third behind Bassim and Kerr, adding six ranking points to his total of 20 and fourth overall.
After falling one point short last year, Woo fulfilled his dream of becoming the first Korean athlete to compete at the World Championships.
