New Empress of Ice’ Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall, photo) decorated the last competition of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup in the 2022-2023 season with ‘silver’.

She was narrowly beaten by Vanessa Herzog (Austria 37.96). She hoped to conquer the
‘gold medal’ season in all of the 5th competitions , but Kim Min-sun, who had won all 5 gold medals in the 500m in the 1st to 5th competitions before failing, failed to win the ‘single season World Cup 500m’ gold medal. The record for most consecutive World Cup victories ahead of her is held by Lee Sang-hwa (retired) with 10. But Kim Min-sun’s season has been a big success amidst her amazing development. Kim Min-sun, who showed her potential by placing 7th in the women’s 500m speed skating event at the Beijing Winter Olympics in February last year, prepared well ahead of this season. Although she is 160cm tall, Kim Min-seon, who trained vigorously with tenacity, won her first World Cup gold medal in the women’s 500m event held in November last year. She said it was the first Korean athlete to win the ISU World Cup Women’s 500m in about 7 years since Lee Sang-hwa of the 4th event of the 2015-2016 World Cup held in December 2015.

Kim Min-sun did not stop, and at the end of January, she set new records for two days in a row, surpassing Lee Sang-hwa’s previous record in the 500m and 1000m at the National Winter Sports Festival.
Her physical load was not small due to her schedule without breaks, so she only won a silver medal in the last World Cup, but Min-sun Kim kept her No. 1 spot in the women’s 500m World Cup rankings this season. Considering that she is in her mid-twenties, Kim Min-seon is likely to grow further.
Her next Winter Olympics will be held in Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo in 2026. Min-sun Kim, who has been on her rise, is waiting for her stage where she can fully solidify her place on the top of the world.
