‘New Empress of Ice Speed’ Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall) challenges her first win in the world speed skating championship.
Kim Min-sun will compete in the women’s 500m at the International Skating Union (ISU) Speed Skating World Championships in the 2022-2023 season held in Thialp, Heerenvein, the Netherlands on the 4th. Match start time is 4:53 a.m. Kim Min-sun is a unique player in the women’s 500m. She swept all the gold medals in the women’s 500m from the 1st to 5th World Cup this season. On the 18th of last month, she missed out on the gold medal at the sixth round of the World Cup, where she failed to claim her former gold medal. This season, she went back and forth to various competitions at home and abroad, which put a lot of strain on her physical strength, but she won a silver medal around her neck. 안전놀이터
Although she is called the Empress, she has yet to reach the world championship podium. Kim Min-sun’s best performance at the World Championships was 15th in the women’s 500m in the 2016-2017 season. Her most recent appearance, in the 2019-2020 season, she placed 18th in the women’s 500 m.
When introducing the contestants on its website, the ISU said of Kim Min-seon, “I only climbed the World Cup podium once (women’s 500m bronze medal) until last season, but this season in the women’s 500m World Cup, I was runner-up once in five women’s 500m gold medals.” After Lee Sang-hwa (34, retired), who won three gold medals in the 500m, she could become Korea’s second female gold medalist.”
Kim Min-sun’s best competitor in this tournament is Vanessa Herchoque (28, Austria), who won the women’s 500m in the 6th World Cup in the 2022-2023 season. She is also expected to compete for her medal with Femke Cork (23, Netherlands), the runner-up at the World Championships in the 2020-2021 season.
Kim Min-sun will also compete in the women’s 1000m event. The women’s 1000m event starts at 11:57 p.m.
