The "Super Goliath" Kim Young-Hyun attained the title of Regional Grand Champion at the Dong-hae Ssireum (Korean-style wrestling) Championship.

At the Dong-hae Ssireum Championship held on September 14 at the Dong-hae Gymnasium, the final match for the title between Kim Young-Hyun and the "Buffalo" Kim Kyung-So was a complete victory 3-0 for Kim Young-Hyun.

This makes it his second championship following his title victory as the Baekdu Grand Champion.

With his most formidable rival out of way due to an injury, Kim Young-Hyun has been able to breeze through the Baekdu and Regional Championships. Along with the Guchung Championship, which was held in June, Kim has proven he shares the top with no one on the sandy ring.

Kim Young-Hyun, in his match with Kim Kyung Su, utilized the "push-slap" and the "side flip" to clinch the victory.
