ISU “Choi Min-jung’s class is forever”… Season’s first gold, Park Ji-won and Lee Jun-seo also gold choir

“Choi Min-jung and Susan Schulting showed that ‘class is forever’.”

The second day of the 5th competition of the 2022-2023 International Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Cup held in Dresden, Germany on the 4th (local time). After South Korea’s Minjeong Choi (25, Seongnam City Hall) and Netherlands’ Susan Schulting (26) won gold medals in the women’s 1500m and 1000m events, the ISU highly praised the two rivals.

Even if it was not such an evaluation, Choi Min-jung was thrilled because it was her first gold medal in the 5th competition this season. In the women’s 1500m first race, Final A, Choi Min-jung crossed the finish line first with a time of 2:26:536. The unique outskirts worked well this time.

Choi Min-jeong waited for an opportunity while running in 4th and 5th places with 8 players competing on the day, and started to hit the outside with about 3 laps left and crossed the finish line first. Christon Santos-Griswald (USA) took the silver medal (2:56:570) and Courtney Saro (Canada) took the bronze (2:56:591). Kim Kun-hee (23, Seongnam City Hall) came in 5th (2:26:954).

Choi Min-jung won the women’s 1000m silver in the first World Cup, the women’s 500m silver and 1500m bronze in the second, and the women’s 1500m silver in the third. She had nothing to do with the gold medal.

In an interview with ISU after the game, Choi Min-jeong said, “She is really happy to win her first gold medal this season. After the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, I really needed a break. So I took some time off and came back slowly. I had a bad start this season, but I feel like I’m getting better again.”

Choi Min-jung previously won four gold medals in the women’s division at the 31st Winter World University Games (Winter Universiade) held in Lake Placid, New York, USA last month.

Choi Min-jeong collaborated with Hong Kyung-hwan (Goyang City Hall), Kim Gil-ri (Seo Hyeon-go), and Lee Jun-seo (Korea National University of Physical Education) in the mixed 2000m relay final A at the 5th competition. Korea ran first in the last minute, but Hong Kyung-hwan, the last runner, allowed the Italian to chase ahead of the final. 스포츠토토

In the men’s 1000m Final A, Park Ji-won (27, Seoul City Hall) won the gold medal (1:23:231), while Lee Jun-seo (23, Seongnam City Hall) and Lim Yong-jin (26, Goyang City Hall) won the men’s 1500m 1st race Final A, respectively. He won the gold medal (2:28:291) and bronze (2:28:773).

As a result, Korea took 3 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze in the finals of the 5 events held that day. Only the women’s 1000m failed to medal. Shim Seok-hee (26, Seoul City Hall) reached the final in this event alone, but she fell behind in fourth place.
