It was a silver medal that was as valuable as a gold medal.
Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall), the ‘Empress of Confidence and Confidence’, took second place in the last (6th) competition of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup in the 2022/23 season and won the overall championship in this event.

With this, Kim Min-sun finished the women’s 500m at the World Cup six times this season with five gold medals and one silver medal. Kim Min-seon won gold medals in all of the previous 1st to 5th competitions, and if she won the 6th competition, she would be the first Korean speed skating company to achieve the gold medal in all competitions in a single season and single event at the World Cup.
However, due to the combination of variables such as her physical burden and psychological contraction due to a false start, she won the silver medal.
Assigned to the 8-group in-course that day, he started ahead of her starting gunshot and was judged to be a false start.
The second shot showed a good start, and the first 100m was accelerated by running in 10 seconds and 49 seconds, but it fell slightly short of the record of 37 seconds and 90 yen in the 5th competition held at the same place a week ago.
Until her own race, Min-sun Kim ran first, beating Leirdam, Utah, Netherlands (38.14), but Vanessa Herzog (Austria), who played in the next group 9, passed the finish line with 37.96 seconds, and was pushed back to second place.

Kim Min-seon smiled broadly as she held the large trophy given to the overall winner of each event in her arms.
In fact, she was 스포츠토토faced with a great physical burden so that it would not be an exaggeration to say that Kim Min-seon almost ran her mental strength through this tournament.

It was because he competed in the relay race.
Immediately after returning home, he participated in the Winter National Sports Festival, which was held as a pre-game, and hurriedly packed up and returned to Poland. He won a gold medal in the 5th competition and a silver medal in the 6th competition.

Kim Min-seon, who has been reborn as the best sprinter in women’s ice skating through this season’s World Cup, will challenge her first world champion through the event-specific world championships held on March 2-5.
