  • February 19, 2023

‘New Empress of Ice’ Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall) failed to win the World Cup title by staying at the silver medal in the last event of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup this season.

Kim Min-sun won her silver medal in the women’s 500 m at the 6th competition of the 2022-2023 ISU Speed ​​Skating World Cup held at the Rodova Arena in Toma Schup Mazowiecki, Poland on the 18th with 38 seconds 08. She placed 1st She was 0.12 seconds behind Vanessa Herzog (Austria · 37s 96) and she missed the 1st place.

If Kim Min-sun, who previously won the 500m in the 1st to 5th World Cup competitions, won the gold medal in her final 6th competition, she could achieve the feat of ‘all-time World Cup 500m crown in one season’ for the first time ever. Min-sun Kim ran the relatively weak first 100m section in 10.49 (2nd place overall), but she did not show as much power in the second half of the race as she did in the previous event, and she settled into second place.

Kim Min-seon participated in the World Cup, Four Continents Championships, Winter Universiade, and Winter Sports this season, and her physical strength has declined. In particular, the Universiade was held in an outdoor stadium, which added to her physical strength. After returning home, she participated in the Winter Games, then immediately left the country to play in the 5th World Cup, repeating her recent hard march. 온라인카지노

However, Min-sun Kim retained her No. 1 spot in the women’s 500m World Cup this season with her total of 354 points. The gap between her second place hair choke (301 points) and third place Erin Jackson (USA 241 points) is overwhelming. Hairchoke finished second to Min-sun Kim in her 2nd, 3rd and 5th competitions before winning her first gold medal in her final competition.

Kim Min-seon is also called the successor of Lee Sang-hwa (retired) as a Korean short-distance signboard. Overcoming his back injury, he showed his true worth in earnest by winning the 500m personal best (36.96) at the 4th World Cup this season. As a player who is still growing, he can surpass the world record (36 seconds 36) held by Lee Sang-hwa and the record for the most consecutive World Cup wins by a Korean player (10 times).

After training while staying in Europe, Kim Min-sun will challenge to become his first world champion at the World Championships to be held in Heerenvein, the Netherlands from the 2nd of next month.
