To everyone's regret, Jaesung Yoo falled to set a new record

The key to setting a new record was a hard training and cash reward. Now 70 million won was promised to anyone who can set a record in 2 hours 13 minutes range. At the 56th Game, Jaejung Yoo did his best but regrettably his record was 2 hours 15 minutes and 48 seconds. In the women's part, Eunjoo Im became the winner for 3 consecutive years with 2 hours 45 minutes and 6 seconds
