Hwang Dae-heon (24, Gangwon-do Office), who was on the verge of being eliminated from the short track national team, revived his career by rising to the top of the midterm total in the preliminary round.
Hwang Dae-heon took first place in the men’s 1,500m and second in the 500m in the 2023-24 season short track national team second round held at the indoor ice rink in Jincheon National Training Center in Chungcheongbuk-do on the 22nd. As a result, Hwang Dae-heon, who added 55 ranking points on this day alone, added the points (13 points) of the first round of selections and took first place in the overall ranking with a total of 68 points. Kim Gun-woo (Sports Toto) recorded the same score as Hwang Dae-heon, but Hwang Dae-heon took the lead in the total rankings in each event. If Hwang Dae-heon finishes second or higher in the men’s 1,000m men’s 1,000m second qualifying event for the national team, which will be held at the same place on the 23rd, he will be qualified to compete in the individual event of the next season’s international competition.카지노
Hwang Dae-heon, a gold medalist at the 2022 Beijing Olympics, was unable to wear the Taegeuk mark because he withdrew from the national team selection due to the aftereffects of a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) last year. The desperate Hwang Dae-heon tried to return to the national team this season, but suffered from severe bad luck in the first round of selections held on the 17th and 18th of this month.
He fell in the men’s 500m final and finished fifth, and in the men’s 1,000m final, he ran first but fell one lap before the finish line to finish sixth. Hwang Dae-heon, who finished the first selection contest in 8th place in the overall ranking, seemed to miss out on the right to participate in the individual competition at the international competition, which is given up to 2nd place in the men’s overall ranking. However, he made a dramatic rebound on the first day of his second tryouts, recovering to his prime.
In the men’s division, Park Ji-won (Seoul City Hall) automatically boarded the national team with the qualification of winning two gold medals at the world championships, and 7 more will be selected. Among them, Park Ji-won and the 1st and 2nd place in the selection competition will participate in the individual and team events of the next season’s international competition, and the 3rd and 4th place in the selection competition will be qualified to participate first in the international competition team event. Players ranked 5th to 7th will be given opportunities to participate in international competitions such as the World Cup depending on whether the top ranked players are injured or rested. Currently, after the first day of the second selection round, Hwang Dae-heon and Kim Kun-woo are followed by Seo Ira (Hwaseong City Hall, 55 points) and Jang Seong-woo (Korea University, 42 points).
In the women’s division, Gil-ri Kim (Seongnam City Hall, 89 points) is in first place in the interim ranking including the results of the 1st competition, Shim Seok-hee (Seoul City Hall, 79 points), Kim A-rang (Goyang City Hall, 55 points), and Park Ji-won (Jeonbuk-do Office, 53 points) points) were placed in the 2nd to 4th places. Choi Min-jung (Seongnam City Hall) was absent.
In the women’s division, which does not qualify for automatic boarding, the 1st to 3rd place in this selection will compete in the individual competition at the next season’s international competition. As a result of the match, Kim Gil-ri secured at least 3rd place in the overall rankings, confirming her advance to the individual competition in the next season’s international competition.
