Speed skater Kim Min-seon (23, Uijeongbu City Hall) won five consecutive championships in the women’s 500m event in the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup Series.
Kim Min-sun finished the 2022-23 5th World Cup in Speed Skating, which ended at the Toma Schup Mazowiecki Ice Arena in 바카라Poland on the 13th (hereinafter Korean time) with her 500m gold medal.
With five consecutive victories, Kim Min-sun is leading the World Cup series 500m world rankings by beating ▲ 2019 World Championship winner Vanessa Herzog (27, Austria) ▲ 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics gold medalist Erin Jackson (30, USA).
▲ 2022 World Sprint Championship Champion Utah Leirdam (24, Netherlands) ▲ 2022 European Championship winner Femker Cock (22, Netherlands) and other 500m speed skating stars are also pushed by Kim Min-sun and are forced to be satisfied with the world ranking TOP5.
Kim Min-sun also won the 500m at the Four Continents Championships, which ended last December at Center de Glace in Quebec, Canada. This means that it is the 6th consecutive gold medal in the 2022-23 International Ice Skating Federation sponsored event.
Last month, she also won the 500m gold medal at the 31st FISU Winter World Games (Winter Universiade) held at the Olympic Center Speed Skating Oval in Lake Placid, New York, USA.
It’s not as good as the 500m, where he won 7 consecutive victories in international competitions, but his 1000m skills are also top-class. Starting with the World Cup opening match victory, they won the top spot at the Four Continents Championships and the Universiade.
Kim Min-sun is ranked fourth overall in the 1000m in the 2022-23 World Cup series. Whether or not the world ranking TOP5 of the two events this season is confirmed will be determined through the last 6th competition (18-20th @ Toma Schupmazowiecki).
