The FIBA 3×3 Challenger, which was held for the first time in the world this year, was held in Hongcheon amid the attention of people around the world.

The “NH Nonghyup Bank FIBA 3×3 Hongcheon Challenger 2024” hosted by the KXO (Korea 3×3 Basketball Federation) and Hongcheon-gun Sports Council was held for two days from the 11th to the 12th in Tori Forest, Hongcheon, with 16 teams from 11 countries participating. The competition, which was held ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics and received a lot of attention from 3×3 basketball players around the world, heated up the court with the enthusiastic enthusiasm of basketball players throughout the tournament, even though some games were held on the 12th due to inclement weather such as rain on the 11th, the first day of the game.

The 3×3 basketball powerhouses such as the U.S. (Princeton), Latvia (Adaji), and the Netherlands (Utrecht) participated in the event, while the Korean teams included Seoul and Busan Clean Shot, Hamo Jinju, and Hanul Construction. Unfortunately, however, the Korean team failed to advance to the quarterfinals. The only time a Korean team beat a foreign team was Seoul’s victory (21-18) in Davao City, the Philippines.안전놀이터 추천

Busan suffered a complete defeat against Australia’s Non-Awarding 2-21, while Ha displayed a two-game full-time fighting spirit with just three players without a substitute, but lost two games. Seoul, which includes Korea’s No. 1 player Kim Jung-nyeon, secured two wins by beating Jinju and Davao City in the Philippines in the preliminary round. However, Seoul failed to advance to the quarterfinals by losing to Germany’s Dusseldorf and Japan’s Utsunomiya in the main draw. “Unfortunately, our team failed to advance to the quarterfinals, but we will continue to make various efforts such as fostering 3×3 basketball players and attracting international competitions so that Hongcheon can establish itself as a mecca for 3×3 basketball,” said Shin Eun-seop, head of the Hongcheon Sports Council.
