Kim Min-sun (23, Uijeongbu City Hall), called the ‘second idealization’,’s goal of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics is of course to win a medal. Kim Min-sun insisted that he would show his idol Lee Sang-hwa in this competition.

Kim Min-seon met with reporters after the 48th National Men’s and Women’s Sprint Competition held at the Taereung International Skating Rink in Seoul on the 14th and said, “The Beijing Olympics is the second individual Olympics after the Pyeongchang Games. We will make up for the parts that were disappointing in the Pyeongchang Games, and we will prepare perfectly for the rest of the time so that we can achieve good results.”

Kim Min-sun is the representative sprinter in Korean speed skating. Since middle school, he has been attracting attention at the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup, and in September 2017, he set a mark of 37.78 in the ISU International Pole Classic 500m, and also broke the junior world record held by Lee Sang-hwa (37.81).

At the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, he suffered a back injury, but at the end of last month, he was revived by setting his own best record (37.205) in the 500m at the 4th International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup. He is also aiming for medals in the 500m and 1000m at the Beijing Olympics.

When asked about his goal at the Olympics, Kim Min-sun confidently said, “Of course, I want to win a medal.” “I think I can achieve my goal if I do my best.”

Furthermore, Kim Min-sun said, “I was careful to supplement the start. “I was trying to find a way to get the best record from the start,” he explained about the Olympic preparation process.

Kim Min-sun is considered to be the successor to Lee Sang-hwa, a legend in speed skating. Lee Sang-hwa also has affection for Kim Min-sun, giving generous advice.

Kim Min-sun said, “(Lee) Sang-hwa unnie often says ‘You are doing well’ and ‘Play with confidence’. I want to show that I work hard and grow even without an older sister.”

Min-gyu Cha (29, Uijeongbu City Hall) of men’s speed skating won a silver medal in the 500m at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. It was a surprising achievement, but it was also disappointing, only 0.01 seconds behind the athlete who won the gold medal at the time.

Cha Min-gyu said, “Unfortunately, I won a silver medal in the Pyeongchang Games. As time passed, the regret grew. I am personally greedy for gold medals.” “I will reduce ups and downs as much as possible and reduce the number of mistakes. I will work hard.”
