‘World Championship D-1’ short track team, spirited and final training
The Korean short track team has completed the final quenching for the 2023 International Ice Skating Federation and ISU World Championships held in ‘Anbang’.
The national team had their last official training ahead of the opening of the World Championships held at Mokdong Ice Rink in Seoul.
The World Championships, the second most prestigious short track speed skating competition after the Olympics, will be held at the Mokdong Ice Rink on the 10th and 12th.
It is the first time in seven years since the 2016 Seoul Games that the World Championships will be held in Korea.
Korea is scheduled to launch a ‘golden run’, led by Choi Min-jung, the ‘ace’ who won the women’s overall championship at the World Championships last year, and Park Ji-won, who is world number 1 in the ISU World Cup this season. 바카라사이트
Ten men, including Park Ji-won, Lee Jun-seo, Hong Kyung-hwan, Lim Yong-jin, Lee Dong-hyun, and women’s women’s Min-jung Choi, Gil-li Kim, Gun-hee Kim, Suk-hee Shim, and So-yeon Lee, participated in the men’s competition.
The players, who warmed up lightly, gathered in a circle and shouted spirits, then increased their speed in earnest to check their condition.
The national team trained with serious faces, but when they took a break, they gathered in groups of threes and fives in the center of the rink and chatted lightly.
About 300 athletes from 34 countries will compete for nine gold medals, including men’s and women’s individual 500m, 1,000m, 1,500m, men’s 5,000m relay, women’s 3,000m relay, and mixed 2,000m relay.
