‘It’s a waste of 0.12 seconds’ Kim Min-sun, ice speed World Cup 500m 6th consecutive gold failure
Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall) failed to sweep all six speed skating World Cup events.
Kim Min-seon recorded 38 seconds 08 in the Women’s 500m Division A at the 2022-2023 season International Skating Union (ISU) Speed Skating World Cup 6th held at the Rodova Arena in Tomaszow Mazowiecki, Poland on the 18th 스포츠토토(Korean time), Vanessa She won the silver medal, 0.12 seconds behind Herzog (Austria).
Kim Min-seon raced on the 8-group in-course. She started the race again due to a false start, but her 100m time was good at 10.49 (Herzog 10.50). However, her speed has dropped slightly since then. In the end, her gold medal was missed as Herzog, who came out in group 9, took 37.96.
However, Kim Min-sun had a great 2022-2023 season.
He won his first World Cup gold medal in November last year. The women’s 500m World Cup gold medal was the first in seven years since Lee Sang-hwa (retired) in December 2015. She then dominated the gold medal until the 5th World Cup event. Even at the Four Continents Championships, she did not miss the gold medal. The record for the most consecutive World Cup victories by a Korean player is Lee Sang-hoe’s 10th consecutive victory.
Although she failed to sweep away the 1st to 6th World Cup gold medals in one season, she received the trophy as the overall first place. Kim Min-sun’s ranking points are 354 points. In second place is Herzog with 301 points.
