South Korea won the men’s taekwondo team gold medal at the Chengdu FISU World University Games on Saturday, defeating Iran 52-40 in the final.

The Koreans took an early lead and never looked back, thanks to strong performances from all four members of the team. Kim Tae-hun, Kim Jun-ho, Lee Dae-ho, and Lee Seung-woo all won their matches, helping Korea to secure the victory.

Iran put up a good fight, but they were simply outclassed by the Koreans. The Iranians won two matches, but they were unable to stop the Korean juggernaut.

The victory is a major boost for South Korean taekwondo, which has been struggling in recent years. The Koreans have not won a gold medal in the men’s team event at the World University Games since 2015.

The win is also a personal triumph for Kim Tae-hun, who was named the tournament MVP. Kim is a two-time Olympic gold medalist, and he is considered to be one of the best taekwondo fighters in the world.

The Korean men’s taekwondo team is now the clear favorite to win gold at the 2024 Paris Olympics. They have the talent, the experience, and the hunger to succeed.
