Ansan, an archery player who won three gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics, visited his alma mater in Gwangju on the 3rd and said, “I wish I could grow into a great athlete and exercise together.” Ansan met her at Gwangju Munsan Elementary School and Gwangju Sports Middle and High School and encouraged juniors in the archery club.
Even though it was summer vacation, many teachers and students visited the school to congratulate Ansan, who achieved three gold medals in a single Olympic Games for the first time in Olympic archery history and for the first time as a Korean athlete. Munsan Elementary School teachers and juniors prepared cakes and bouquets with three candles lit to commemorate the three crowns and welcomed Ansan, which made their alma mater shine.
Ansan hugged the archery instructor and gave gifts to the teachers with golden bows and arrow-shaped ornaments, and expressed her gratitude to her alma mater for taking her first steps as an archery player. In the archery training room, he generously passed on his archery secrets while observing the postures of his juniors.
Gwangju Athletic Middle School and High School, where he developed his skills as an archery player in earnest, gave advice based on his experiences to his juniors. Ansan said in a greeting at the welcome event organized by Gwangju Sports Middle and High School, “As athletes, the Olympics must be the stage of their biggest dreams (even if trials come), please do not give up and fight.”
After the welcome ceremony was over, he said, “I feel like I won three Inje-ya,” and “Thanks to everyone who taught and supported me.” He then urged his juniors, “Don’t think you’re going to lose, and always play with a positive mind.”
Ansan, who returned from the Tokyo Olympics, returned to her house in Gwangju, ate the rice her mother made, and only slept and rested.
