‘Short track speed ace’ Choi Min-jeong (25, Seongnam City Hall) won her first World Cup gold medal this season, and the Korean men’s and women’s short track speed track team won 3 gold medals (1 silver medal, 1 bronze medal) at once. harvested

Choi Min-jung was the first to cross the finish line with her unique out-course protrusion at the 2022-23 International Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Cup (5th) Women’s 1500m final held in Dresden, Germany on the 4th (Korean time). Her record was 2 minutes 26 seconds 536.

This gave Choi Min-Jeong her first gold medal in her World Cup this season. Kim Geon-hee (23, Seongnam City Hall), who ran with her, finished in 5th place and unfortunately failed to win her medal.

Choi Min-jung ran in the 4th and 5th positions at the beginning of the race. Then, with two laps to go, Choi Min-jeong took the lead, easily overtaking Christon Santos-Griswald (USA) and Courtney Saro (Canada).

Choi Min-jung, who achieved four gold medals at the 31st Winter World University Games (Universiade) last month, will continue her good mood in this World Cup. Choi Min-jeong also passed her previous semifinals as first place, raising expectations for her gold medal. 안전놀이터

Choi Min-jeong won a silver medal in the 1000m in her first World Cup event, a silver in the 500m and a bronze in the 1500m in her second. She also slowly raised her senses as she won the silver medal in the 1500m when she was third.

Shim Suk-hee made it to the women’s 1000m final, but finished fourth and was unable to stand on the podium. Shim Suk-hee, who made it to the final after beating the two Chinese players (Wang Xin-ran and Gong Li), took the lead from the start. She did, but with five laps to go she was pushed all the way to 3rd and she sprained on the last lap, pushing her to 4th. The first place was taken by Schjaner Swielting (Netherlands).

Lee Jun-seo (23, Seongnam City Hall) won the gold medal in men’s 1500m. Junsu Lee took the lead with 9 laps to go and gave up the lead for a while, but he did not give up the lead after 2 laps left and went to the front again. Lim Yong-jin came in third and took the bronze medal.

Lee Jun-su won silver and bronze medals in the 500m event at the 1st and 2nd World Cup held last year, but this time he won the gold medal.

Park Ji-won (27, Seoul City Hall) also won the gold medal in the men’s 1000m final. Park Ji-won succeeded in overtaking Roberts Kreuzbers (Latvia) by momentarily digging into the inner course on the last lap.

Park Ji-won has won gold medals in all World Cups this season. Park Ji-won swept the 1500m in the first round, the 1000m in the second, the 1500m in the third, and both the 1000m and 1500m in the fourth. Kim Tae-seong (22, Dankook University) collided with Miyata Shogo (Japan) and fell and missed the medal.

In the 2000m mixed relay final, Korea won the silver medal. Korea, consisting of Choi Min-jung, Kim Gil-li (19, Seongnam City Hall), Lee Jun-seo, and Hong Kyung-hwan (24, Goyang City Hall), recorded a time of 2 minutes 39 seconds 514, finishing second after Italy (2 minutes 39 seconds 388).

Meanwhile, Lee So-yeon (30, Sports Toto) and Seo Hwi-min (21, Korea University) were eliminated in the women’s 1000m quarterfinals. Lee Dong-hyeon (19, Uijeongbu Kwangdong High School) advanced to Final B by staying third in the group in the men’s 1000m semifinal.
