General
OVERCOMING INJURY
He underwent surgery on his back in grade 11 of high school. "One day, when I competed at a tournament, I was not even able to breathe due to pain in my back after jumping on vault. That's why I decided to have surgery. I focused on four-hour intense training sessions for rehabilitation each day. After six months, I felt like I was back to form. However, when I was standing in front of the vault for the first time after the surgery, I was hesitant for 10 minutes. I was afraid to jump, and doubted whether I could do it again, despite having metal pins inserted into my back. But I had no choice, as vault was the only thing I could do in my life." (TV Chosun Life Documents My Way, 29 Aug 2021; yna.co.kr, 03 Aug 2021)

ROLE MODEL
His hero is Korean artistic gymnast Yang Hak-Seon, who won gold in vault at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Shin followed in Yang's footsteps by claiming gold in the same event at the 2020 Games in Tokyo. "I have admired Yang since I was age 15. When he won gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, it gave me great motivation. I wanted to become like him. The following day I went to the gym, and copied his routine, like spitting saliva on both hands before jumping. I also hope to inspire young gymnasts."
