The Accident Of Talented Horse Racing Athlete
The sudden fall in the content of the individual band caused horse racing athlete Kim Hyung Chil (Korea) to die at the hospital. He will be awarded the Korean Government Medal and will be buried in the national cemetery.
Kim Hyung Chil fell off the Bundaberg Black horse when the two were trying to overcome the eighth barrier in the race that took place at Doha’s Temporary Race School. This sudden accident caused him to fall to the ground and was trampled on the head and chest by the horse, leading to serious injury. Immediately, the 47-year-old athlete was taken to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment but he did not survive.
Korean horse racing general secretary Park Won Oh recounted: “When Kim had an accident, the helmet was still on his head but the blood was flowing from his head”. Korean team doctor Park Won Hah said the X-ray results showed that the cause of Kim’s death was the destruction of the spinal cord nerve after being injured in the skull.
Kim Hyung Chil is the oldest athlete of the Korean sports team and has 30 years on the saddle. He won bronze medal at ASIAD 1986 and silver medal at ASIAD 2002. Not only good horse racing, he was also a doctor of research on horse racing at Yong In University.
President of the Korean Olympic Committee – Kim Jung Kil asked ASIAD 15 to conduct an investigation soon to clarify the cause of Kim Hyung Chil’s death. Kim Jung Kil said the athlete Kim Hyung Chil will be awarded the government medal and will be buried in the national cemetery. Vice President ASIAD 15 Ahmed Abdulla said that he will spend a minute of reciting at all venues to remember Kim Hyung Chil.
According to many, the last 42 years of rain in Doha not only caused many sports to be postponed, but the slippery aftermath was part of the unfortunate accident. However, Vice President of International Horse Racing Federation (IEF) Christopher Hodson has denied weather is the cause of the death of Korean athletes.
