‘New Empress of Ice’ Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall) failed to win the 500m in all competitions by missing the gold medal in the last competition of the International Skating Union (ISU) Speed Skating World Cup in the 2022-23 season.
Kim Min-seon came second with a record of 38 seconds 08 in the women’s 500m Division A at her World Cup 6th event held at the Lodova Arena in Toma Schup Mazowiecki, Poland on the 18th (Korean time).
Min-sun Kim, who competed in the in-course in Group 8, ran her first 100m in 10.49 seconds, but she fell behind Vanessa Herzog (Austria) in Group 9 with a time of 37.96. Min-seon Kim, who had previously won gold medals in the 500m in the 1st to 5th competitions, left a regret that she could not complete the ‘World Cup 500m crown in a single season’.
However, this season she firmly held onto the top spot (354 points) in the World Cup Women’s 500m rankings. Her runner-up was Herzog온라인카지노, who added one gold medal on the day to the three silver medals earlier, with 301 points.
‘Post idealization’ Kim Min-sun is opening her own era by winning her first World Cup gold medal in the women’s 500m at her World Cup 1st event last November. She said it was the first time in seven years since Lee Sang-hwa that a Korean athlete won the women’s 500m at the ISU World Cup.
Kim Min-seon won gold medals in six consecutive ISU events, including her World Cup 1-5 and the Four Continents Championships. The record for the most consecutive World Cup victories (10) among Korean players is held by Lee Sang-hwa, who won gold medals over three seasons in 2013-14.
