Yang Hyeon-jong and Kim Gwang-hyun’s ‘left-handed genealogy’, Gu Chang-mo “The first button of the national team is well done”

This is the bold aspiration of NC’s native ace Chang-mo Koo (26), who overcame an arm injury last year and rose again. Overcoming difficult times with his injury, surgery, and rehabilitation, he enjoyed the joy of being selected for the first World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team in his debut.

In the meantime, I had no contact with the national team. I had a chance, but I missed it because of injuries every time. In fact, he returned the Taegeuk mark due to back pain after being selected as the Premier 12 representative in 2019. An opportunity also came at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held in 2021, but was frustrated by a stress fracture in the forearm muscle of his left arm.

Is that why? The moment I made my name in the 30-man final entry for the WBC national team, I felt joy, tension, and excitement. In a phone call with Sports Seoul, he said, “I have always dreamed of becoming a national representative, but I missed it every time, so I thought I should not relax until the final announcement.” “It was so nice to have my name on the final list. I was not satisfied with being selected, but I was nervous and excited at the thought that I had to do well.”

Is it because of the regret of missing the Taegeuk mark due to his injury? He repeatedly emphasized ‘health’ in preparing for the WBC. 카지노

Gu Chang-mo said, “Above all, I will prepare healthily. If you are healthy, you are confident in all parts. The first and second are health,” he said. “Since the WBC tournament is in March, I am preparing quickly so that I can improve my physical condition before the spring camp and immediately enter the (national team) official training. We are training with an emphasis on the technical part.” “I am preparing well without any pain and I am in good condition. I want to go to official training soon and pitch.”

In the 2021 season, he ended up on the operating table as his rehabilitation was slow, and he couldn’t play the entire season. However, overcoming his injury, he showed off his strength by playing a comeback match against Doosan in Changwon on May 28 last year. Chang-mo Koo participated in 19 games last year, digested 111.2 innings, recorded 11 wins, 5 losses and an average ERA of 2.10, announcing the return of the ace and boarded the WBC final entry. He has fully recovered from his injuries.

Now, his eyes are on Tokyo, where the WBC will be held. The goal of inheriting the left-handed pitcher lineage of ‘Kwang Hyeon-jong (Kim Gwang-hyeon, Yang Hyeon-jong)’ is also certain. Although he lacks international competition experience, his spirit and confidence are second to none. Moreover, I got a chance to play with ‘Kwang Hyeon-jong’ in this WBC.

Koo Chang-mo said, “I want to learn the left hand, such as how to make a long run from seniors Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong. I talked to senior (Yang) Hyeonjong, but (Kim) Gwanghyeon had no relationship. I plan to have a lot of conversations and get contact information this time.” This WBC is the first step. I want to sew the first button well,” he said vigorously.
