Kim Min-seon (Uijeongbu City Hall), who succeeded in winning the World Cup women’s 500m four times in a row this season, said that it is still too early to compare her with her ‘role model’, the ice queen Lee Sang-hwa.
In the afternoon of the 20th, Kim Min-seon, who returned home in gold through Incheon International Airport, said in an interview with reporters, “I did my best to keep first place in the 3rd and 4th competitions by achieving good results in the 1st and 2nd competitions. I feel proud that the results came out.” laughed
Kim Min-sun won the 2022-2023 International Skating Union (ISU) Speed Skating World Cup 4th Competition Women’s 500m Division A (1st division) with a record of 36 seconds 96 held at the Olympic Oval in Calgary, Canada on the 17th.
Including the ISU Four Continents Championships held earlier this month, she is the fifth consecutive gold medal in ISU international events.
Kim Min-sun said, “I want to give 90 points out of 100. In the 1st and 2nd competitions, I was very satisfied with the record and overall race management, so it was close to 100 points. It was regrettable, so I deducted 10 points.”
Kim Min-seon is one step closer to her 2013 world record set by Lee Sang-hwa (36 seconds 36).
The record for the most consecutive World Cup victories among Korean players is 10 by Lee Sang-hwa. From the 2nd race of the World Cup Finals in M arch 2013 to the 2nd race of the 1st World Cup in November 2014, he won 10 consecutive victories. 메이저사이트
Regarding the comparison with Lee Sang-hwa, Kim Min-sun said, “My sister has kept the first place for a long time. She also has a world record. Personally, she is the most respected player. I don’t think I’m comparing myself to my sister yet. I want to challenge the world record.”
In order to challenge Lee Sang-hwa’s world record, he said that the first priority was to supplement the start.
He said, “This is something I’ve always worried about before. I think I’m making up for it little by little, but there’s still something lacking.” It seems,” he said.
