The atmosphere of the men’s short track team is not unusual ahead of the 2026 Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo Winter Olympics.
Park Ji-won ((Seoul City Hall) of the 메이저사이트 short track men’s national team recorded a record of 2 minutes 18 seconds 263 in the second race of the men’s 1500m at the 2022-23 season International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup 5th held in Dresden, Germany on the 6th (Korean time). He won the
gold medal in the men’s 1000m event held the previous day as well, and scored a total of 868 points in the World Cup rankings, widening the gap with 2nd place Hong Gyeong-hwan (634 points, Goyang City Hall) and 3rd place Stephen Dubois (524 points, Canada). In the World Cup rankings
, which are determined based on individual performance in the 1st to 6th competitions, Park Ji-won is likely to be the final 1st place with the 6th competition left.
It is nice to see Park Ji-won appear in the middle.
Hwang Dae-heon is the player who won the first gold medal for the Korean team at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics held last year.,With the addition of Park Ji-won, who virtually confirmed the world cup overall ranking, the men’s national team also has a clear ‘two-headed carriage’ If Hwang Dae-heon returns from injury, a synergistic effect can be expected between the two players.
The men’s national team has been singing hymns of hope as they have two high-level aces, but it is necessary to be wary of the rising trend of Lin Xiaojun (Korean name Lim Hyo-jun). is there
Lin Xiaojun, who won the gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics as a signboard for the Korean short track speed skating team, was at the center of controversy in 2019 for sexual harassment of a junior player, and eventually received a one-year suspension from the Korea Skating Federation.
Afterwards, Lin Xiaojun was naturalized as a Chinese citizen to compete in the Beijing Winter Olympics, but due to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) rule that ‘in order for an athlete to change nationality and participate in the Olympics, three years must pass since the international competition in which he participated in the previous nationality’. I couldn’t step on the Olympic stage.
Lin Xiaojun, who did not show his presence in the Chinese national team even after the Olympics, finally announced his revival through the 5th World Cup.
Shaojun Lin, who competed in the men’s 500m final, won the gold medal beating Kim Tae-seong (Dankook University) and Dubois. After winning his first gold medal in the individual event, he even shed tears at the awards ceremony.
In the men’s 5,000m relay final that followed, Lin Xiaojun took the lead in winning the Chinese national team and won two gold medals in this event.
The revived Lin Xiaojun has emerged as the No. 1 target to be wary of, who will repeatedly block the Korean men’s short track speed skating team in future international competitions.
In particular, Lun Xiaojun is scheduled to participate in the ISU World Championships, which will open in Seoul on the 10th of next month following the 6th World Cup, which opens in Dordrecht, the Netherlands on the 10th, and will continue to compete with Korean players.
