S. Korean swimming sensation Hwang Sun-woo makes it to 100m freestyle final Updated: 2021-07-28 13:40:03 KST

Now, let's turn to the Olympics and South Korea's new swimming sensation, Hwang Sun-woo, is making headlines again.
He's become the first Korean swimmer to make it to the final of the men's 100m freestyle.
In the semi-final this morning, he made a time of 47.five-six seconds to place fourth in the round and setting a new Asian record.
He was just four one-hundredths of a second behind the third-place swimmer, so hopes are high for a good result in the final on Thursday morning.
After this he still has two more events left the 50m freestyle and 4-by-200m relay final.
If he makes it to the podium he'll be only the second Korean to win a medal in swimming after Park Tae-hwan.
