JAKARTA, Aug. 24 (Yonhap) — South Korean swimmer Kim Seo-yeong won the first Asian Games gold medal of her career on Friday by taking the women’s 200-meter individual medley title.

Kim finished the race in an Asian Games record of 2:08.34 at GBK Aquatic Center and gave South Korea its first swimming gold medal.

This is the final day of swimming events in Jakarta. South Korea has won one gold, one silver and four bronze.

Kim had the reaction time of 0.66 second, fourth fastest in the field of eight, but she got to the 50m point faster than anyone at 27.31 seconds.

Kim stayed in first place at the halfway mark at 59.37 seconds. The South Korean was still in the lead after 150m at 1:37.60 and held on for the record-setting victory.

Yui Ohashi of Japan won the silver medal in 2:08.88. Miho Teramura, also of Japan, got the bronze in 2:10.98.

Kim is South Korea’s first Asiad swimming champion since Park Tae-hwan won three gold medals in 2010. The last South Korean to win an individual medley gold in the Asian Games was Choi Yun-hui in the women’s 200m in 1982.
