Late yesterday, the International Olympic Committee finally officially announced that the Tokyo Olympics will be postponed and will be held no later than the summer of 2021. The organizers, sponsors and even sports fans are very concerned about whether the Olympic Games can be held as scheduled. Among them, there is a group in the world sports community that is particularly concerned: whether the Tokyo Olympics can be held as scheduled is related to whether their careers can "turn from danger to safety." "The name of this group is the Korean National Olympic Team.
昨天晚些时候，国际奥委会终于正式宣布推迟东京奥运会，并将不迟于2021年夏天举行。组织者，赞助商甚至体育迷都对奥运会能否如期举行感到非常关注。 。其中，世界体育界中有一个特别令人担忧的团体：东京奥运会能否如期举行与他们的职业能否“从危险转变为安全”有关。 “这个团体的名字是韩国国家奥林匹克队。
The reason is that, do you remember Sun Xingmin's crying after the quarter-finals of the 2016 Brazil Olympics men's football? Do you still remember that Sun Xingmin had to take part in the Asian Games after fighting his life in 2018?
South Korea’s military service system almost made the career of the No. 1 Asian man take a turn for the worse; fortunately, Sun Xingmin seized the last chance. Like Sun Xingmin before it, the Tokyo Olympics is really the last "life-saving straw" for many Korean players. The Olympic Games have been postponed, and there is a real possibility that a player's career will light up.
Analyzing this problem, one of the most important points is to check the time point. This so-called "time point" is composed of three lines: one is the required age for military service in South Korea; the second is the official age for participating in the Asian Games and the Olympics; the last factor is the holding period of the Asian Games and the Olympics-many players carefully calculated , Finally found out that he was really only a few months away from the opportunity to be exempted from military service again.
Every country has the term "National Olympic Team". The origin of this term is the Olympic Games. The general age requirement for men's football in the Olympic Games is under 23. For example, in the registration rules for men's football events in the Tokyo Olympics this year, the range of U23 players is defined as those born after January 1, 1997.
1997 + Korean football, many people may subconsciously think of a title: the golden generation of 97 South Korea. What is the gold content of this team? This team defeated Iran, Uzbekistan, Jordan, Australia and Saudi Arabia in the U23 Asian Cup at the beginning of the year, and finally won the Asian Cup. In a word, in Asia, this team is the top team.
Because of this, South Korea's Olympic team coach Kim Hae-fan said in an interview before that: The Tokyo Olympics will compete for medals. This is a rhetoric for the coach or the Korean Football Association, and for the players, it is a real "career talisman". For this amulet, some people have a good mentality, and some are anxious.
Some people are light and windy because they have already made a "career talisman" before that. Yes, it was at the Jakarta Asian Games where Sun Xingmin "resurrected". At that time, Jin Hefan brought 9 students who skipped the grades. The list of these 9 people is as follows: Song Fangen (1997), Zheng Taiyu (1997), Li Shirong (1997), Li Zhenxian (1997) , Jin Jianxiong (1997), Jin Zhenye (1998), Li Shengmo (1998), Li Shengyou (1998), and Jin Zhengmin (1999).
Why do you need to specifically mark the year the player was born? Just to let you feel intuitively: the above nine players all meet the age requirements for the Tokyo Olympic Games (after January 1, 1997), they can lay down their psychological burden and enjoy the game. However, there are still many people on the Korean Olympic team who are trembling. If the opponent scores a goal in the game, they will feel chills in their backs and panic.
To a certain extent, the South Korean team played well in the U23 Asian Cup at the beginning of the year, which is just a very important part of preparing for the Olympics. The lineup that won the Asian Cup at the beginning of the year, as originally planned, will be the prototype of South Korea's Olympic participation in the Olympics.
Among the players who participated in the U23 Asian Cup at the beginning of the year, as many as 9 were not exempted from military service. The most famous among them are Lee Dong-Jong, a regular guest of the Korean adult national team, and Won Doo-jae, who won the best player in the U23 Asian Cup.
There are two other players, Chinese fans are also very impressed: one is Li Dongjun. The Olympic team U23 Asian Cup first match to South Korea, the whole game played turbulent, and even once suppressed South Korea, but the last minute of injury time to kill the Chinese team, it is the substitute forward Li Dongjun. Daegu FC striker Kim Dae-won, who broke Evergrande's goal in the AFC Champions League last year, is also eager to be liberated through the Tokyo Olympics.
For these players, it is important to hold the Tokyo Olympics as scheduled, but the one-year postponement of the Tokyo Olympics is not the end of the world. The Tokyo Olympics has been postponed for one year. An official of the Korean Football Association previously stated to the plan: “In view of the possible postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, we are considering applying to the International Olympics. Whether next year’s age for participation will still be calculated based on this year’s age. It’s the U24 to participate in the Olympics. Although we know this is difficult, we have to give it a try."
Even if the International Olympic Committee refuses to participate in the U24 men's football game next year, the Korean National Olympic players born after January 1, 1997, who are only 25 years old at the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou, can at least be like Sun Xingmin in 2018. Apply through outstanding performance to participate as an over-age player.
However, the number of military service exemptions that this plan can bring is obviously not comparable to the Tokyo Olympic Games held as scheduled to receive medals, and all members are exempted from military service.
As mentioned in the previous article, the general age requirement for men’s football in the Olympic Games is under 23 years old, but there is a special rule that each team can bring less than 3 overage players. The Korean military service system stipulates that citizens must enlist in the army before the age of 28. Therefore, the age of these three over-age players can only be between 23 and 28 years old.
The five-year-old age difference, combined with the four-year cycle of the Olympics and Asian Games, once missed an opportunity to exempt military service through the Asian Games and the Olympics, there are generally only two opportunities to remedy the situation. For example, let's say that the 2016 Rio Olympics failed to exempt from military service. Then the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games is an opportunity, and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is an opportunity. Once it reaches 2022, the time span will be 6 years.
There is a prerequisite for this. You must be a real Olympic batch. Once there is a difference of six months or even three to five months in age, you may lose a chance to fight for exemption from military service because of three to five months.
What criteria does the Korean Football Association choose for these three places? In fact, to put it bluntly is very simple: at least you must be a regular visitor to the national team. The Ministry of National Defense of South Korea has the mission and tasks of the Ministry of National Defense, but the mission of the Korean Football Association is to maximize the performance of the national team. This involves a problem, avoiding many professional players to serve in the peak period. The most typical example is Sun Xingmin. There are Sun Xingmin and no Sun Xingmin, the South Korean national team has two levels.
After successfully saving the soldier Sun Xingmin, who was the soldier that the Korean Football Association originally hoped to save this time?
The first is the 26-year-old Quan Changxun who has played 15 times in the Bundesliga in Freiburg this season. In the 2017-2018 season, being able to score 11 goals and send 3 assists in Dijon, and being able to gain a foothold in the Bundesliga this season has already demonstrated the importance of Quan Changxun to Korean football.
As far as Quan Changxun’s development trajectory is concerned, even if the Tokyo Olympics has been postponed for one year, Quan Changxun has a high probability of getting an over-age player quota. But what is certain is that next year’s Olympics will be Quan Changxun’s last chance. Once the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games arrives, Quan Changxun will become very embarrassed. His birthday is June 30, 1994, and he will be exactly 28 years old on June 30, 2022. It is entirely possible that Quan Changxun was born a few months earlier and lost an opportunity to fight for exemption from military service.
According to South Korean media reports, the other two South Korean Olympic team coach Kim Hak-fan focused on two Chinese Super League faces: Guangzhou Evergrande defender Park Ji-soo and Tianjin Tianhai player Song Zhuxun. Cannavaro's praise for Park Zhisu's physical hardness and position selection skills is evident.
Park Ji-soo’s birthday is June 13, 1994. His situation is almost the same as Kwon Chang-hoon’s. The Tokyo Olympics is determined to be postponed for one year, and he may get an overage quota; but if he can’t seize the opportunity next year, then Park Ji-soo can only go. Go to the Sangju Sangmu team directly under the military in the K-League, or the Ansan Mugunghwa team that belongs to the police team in the K2 League. Song Zhuxun was born on January 13, 1994. His situation is similar to Quan Changxun and Park Jisoo, and he has the only and last hope.
朴智秀的生日是1994年6月13日。他的情况与权昌勋的情况几乎相同。确定将东京奥运会推迟一年，他可能会获得超额配额；但是如果他明年不能抓住这个机会，那么朴智-只能走了。前往K联赛中直属军队的Sangju Sangmu团队，或K2联赛中属于警察团队的Ansan Mugunghwa团队。宋祝勋生于1994年1月13日。他的情况与权昌勋和朴智s相似，他拥有唯一和最后的希望。
Of course, there are some players who don't really care about whether the Olympics will be postponed or not-their reason is that I am still young anyway! Barça’s “Korea Messi” Bai Seung-ho (23), and Lee Gang-in, who played 11 times in La Liga Valencia at the age of 19 this season, did not pay much attention to the U23 Asian Cup at the beginning of the year. When other players struggled to win an Olympic seat in the Asian Cup, these two "geniuses" directly gave up the opportunity to participate in the U23 Asian Cup.
Therefore, the two Korean geniuses may not care too much about the postponement of the Olympic Games-I am still young, and I still have a lot of opportunities. Fans familiar with Sun Xingmin know that this is also Sun Xingmin’s inner monologue. The fact that Sun Xingmin’s “too wave” led to the loss of many opportunities and the red light in his career is enough to explain-even if you still have three opportunities, you have all three opportunities. Entering the semi-finals, but someone else's character explodes in the world, and you may be sent from the rich team to the military team.
Take "Korea Messi" Bai Shenghao. His date of birth was March 17, 1997. He was originally an age-appropriate player for the Tokyo Olympics, but the Tokyo Olympics was postponed for one year (the U24 will probably be rejected for the Olympics policy) and he will no longer He is an Olympic-age player and needs to compete for the number of over-age players; once he waits for the 2022 Asian Games, Bai Shenghao will be 25 years old, and the 2024 Olympics will be 27 years old... Therefore, regarding the issue of exemption from military service through the Olympics and the Asian Games, no one should feel themselves. Still small, more opportunities...
Even Li Gangren, who is only 19 years old this year, is the same, and Zheng Youying, who is 20 years old, is the same. The development trend is very good now, but in case of injury during the Asian Games or the Olympic Games, or the genius becomes "injury Zhong Yong", even The National Olympic team can’t make it, or the Korean Football Association feels that you are not worth the value of an overage quota (after 23 years of age). The naked military policy will ruthlessly cut off your career-the first half It may be a genius, the latter half will only obliterate everyone step by step...
