Taekwondo girl Miran Cheon, who was frustrated with her short stature, stands tall as a wrestling signboard

Chun Mi-ran (Samsung Life Insurance), the next-generation signboard of Korean women’s wrestling, was a promising taekwondo player at Chungju Buk Girls’ Middle School.

Miran Cheon,메이저놀이터 armed with her tenacity like Akbari, extraordinary desire to win, and fast speed, received great expectations.

She, Chun Mi-ran, is full of her confidence. He said she “thought she could be the best player”.

However, Mi-Ran Chun found a limit she could not cross. Her short height of 152 cm was a problem.

Mi-Ran Chun recalled that time, “It was difficult to overcome the height difference in the national competition.

She couldn’t find a solution. Frustrated, she visited several hospitals with her parents. The diagnostic results were the same.

Chun Mi-ran said, “They said my growth plates were closed. They said there was no way to increase my height.”

“Even so, she didn’t want to give up on her dream of becoming an athlete,” he said. “At the time, her brother learned wrestling, and he said that height was not an issue due to the nature of the sport. That’s why she turned to wrestling.”

Chun Miran got into wrestling in earnest when she was in her second year of middle school. The intensity of her training was incomparably higher than Taekwondo. But she, Chun Miran, was happy.

He said, “In wrestling, regardless of physical condition, results come out as much as you train.”

Chun Mi-ran’s solid physique was a disadvantage in taekwondo, but rather advantageous in wrestling.

He kept his center of gravity low and honed his tackling skills by targeting the opponent’s lower body.

She knocks on the hospital door, but this time, too, her pointed count doesn’t come out. Doctors said her eye condition would be difficult to correct with vision correction.

However, Chun Mi-ran did not give up. He said, “From then on, I tried to make use of her senses and feelings,” and “I trained many techniques over and over again, so my body reacted first even if I couldn’t see well.”

The frontal tackling technique, which was honed through intense intensive training, has become Chun Mi-ran’s main specialty.
