He passed the International Swimming Federation A standard record (23 seconds 53) and became the first to teach water at the World Aquatics Championships. Baek In-cheol said, “The purpose of training has become clearer than before. The reason for training is only to shorten the record, and I am working every moment with the determination not to participate in the competition if I do not have the confidence to shorten the record after participating in the competition.” .
Meanwhile, the Korea Swimming Federation selects athletes from the Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships, the Chengdu Summer Universiade, and the Hangzhou Asian Games through national team selections on the 25th and 30th. In the case of the World Championships, those who have passed the International Swimming Federation A record are automatically confirmed to participate, and those who have passed the Korea Swimming Federation’s own standard record (KSF) will be dispatched according to the decision of the Federation’s Performance Improvement Committee. In the case of the Asian Games, regardless of the standard record, the number of players approved by the Korea Sports Council will wear the Taegeuk mark for the top players in the finals of each event.
