After enduring obscurity for a long time, he ascended to the top… Park Ji-won won the short track WC

Park Ji-won (27, Seoul City Hall), the Korean men’s national short track team, has overcome a long period of obscurity and has risen to the top.

Park Ji-won won the men’s 1000m second race and the men’s 5000m relay at the 6th competition of the 2022-2023 International Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Cup held in Dordrecht, the Netherlands on the 13th (Korean time)바카라사이트. He won three gold medals in the event, including the gold medal in the 1500m the day before. In the 1st to 6th competitions, only 14 gold medals were awarded to Park Ji-won.

With this, Park Ji-won recorded a total ranking of 1068 points in the 1st to 6th World Cup competitions in the 2022-2023 season, making history by rising to the top of the individual overall. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the World Cup this season, the ISU selected first place in the men’s and women’s overall rankings based on the results of the 1st to 6th competitions and presented them with a special trophy, the Crystal Globe, and Park Ji-won became the first recipient.

It is the top spot that has been reached after enduring a long period of endurance. Park Ji-won wore the Taegeuk mark in the 2015-2016 season, but did not receive attention compared to Lin Xiaojun (Korean name Lim Hyo-jun) and Hwang Dae-heon (Gangwon Provincial Office). He also experienced the pain of being eliminated from the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics national team selection rounds. However, he has been on the national team again this season and is having the best season as an ace.

In an interview with ISU, Park Ji-won said, “I wanted to become a part of short track speed skating history by becoming the first winner of the Crystal Globe,” and “I’m proud of myself for doing that.” “There were many times in the past few years when I couldn’t be selected for the national team,” he said. “So I wanted to show that I came back. The reason why I put all my energy into every moment.”

Meanwhile, Kim Gilli (Seo Hyeon-go) of the women’s national team won the silver medal in the women’s 1000m second race final with a time of 1:33:037, following Courtney Seo-ro (1:32:930, Canada). The overall championship in the women’s division was won by Shizaner Swielting of the Netherlands, and Gilly Kim came in fourth. The national team will finish the 2022-2023 season

at the 2023 ISU World Short Track Championships, which will be held on March 10-12 at the ice rink in Mok-dong, Seoul .
