2022 Beijing Winter Olympics gold medalist Hwang Dae-heon (24, Gangwon-do Office) was sluggish on the first day of the national team selection match.

Hwang Dae-heon recorded 2 minutes 19 seconds 219 in the men’s 1500m final of the 2023-24 season short track national team first selection held at the indoor ice rink in Jincheon National Training Center in Chungcheongbuk-do on the 18th, finishing only 6th out of 7 players. Hwang Dae-heon also fell in the early stages of the 500m race and ended up in last place among the five.

Hwang Dae-heon won a gold medal at the 2022 Beijing Olympics and emerged as a signboard of Korean men’s short track speed skating. Last year, he was unable to participate in international competitions as he withdrew from the representative selection due to the aftermath of a new coronavirus infection (Corona 19).카지노사이트

The top 24 men and women from the 1st contest can compete in the 2nd contest. Then, the total score of the two competitions is added and the final representative is selected.

This season’s short track national team consists of a total of 16 people (8 men and 8 women). Among them, except for Park Ji-won (27, Seoul City Hall), who automatically boarded the men’s world championship with two gold medals, the remaining top seven will be selected as national representatives. However, in order to qualify for the World Championships and World Cup series, they must finish 4th and 5th respectively. Otherwise, only when there is a gap due to injury among the top players can they participate in the World Championship and World Cup series.

In the men’s 1500m event, Kim Da-gyeom (Seongnam City Hall) placed first, Jang Seong-woo (Korea University) second, Lee Jun-seo (Seongnam City Hall) third, Kim Kun-woo fourth, and Jung Won-sik (Sports Toto) fifth. In the men’s 500m event, Lee Jung-min (Korea National Sport University) took first place, Seo Ira (Hwaseong City Hall) second, and Kwak Yoon-ki (Goyang City Hall) third.

In the women’s 1500m event, Lee So-yeon (Sports Toto) took first place, while Kim A-rang (Goyang City Hall) and Lee Yu-bin (Uijeongbu City Hall) placed second and third, respectively. Shim Seok-hee (Seoul City Hall) and Seo Hwi-min (Korea University) followed in 4th and 5th places.

In the women’s 500m event, Kim Gil-ri (Seongnam City Hall), who won two gold medals at the World Cup last season, took first place. Park Ji-won (Jeonbuk Provincial Office) ranked second, Park Ji-yoon (Uijeongbu City Hall) third, Kim A-rang fourth, and Lee So-yeon (Sports Toto) fifth. ‘Women’s short track signboard’ Choi Min-jung did not compete for reasons such as replacing and reorganizing her equipment.

Meanwhile, Victor Ahn (38, Korean name Ahn Hyun-soo) was reported not to have appeared at the stadium that day. It seems that he refrained from taking public actions in consideration of the attention he was receiving. Having recently helped train juniors at his alma mater, Korea National University of Physical Education, he participated in this selection as a personal coach for some players, rather than leading a specific team.
