Will Kim Min-seon’s heyday begin? Lee Sang-hwa and Yeni Wolf also held power for a long time
Speed skating signboard Kim Min-seon (24) won the World Cup one after another and heralded the golden age. Given that legendary players such as Lee Sang-hwa and Yeni Wolf did not miss the top spot for several years after entering their heyday, Kim Min-seon is also predicted to be able to hold power for a long time unless a strong competitor emerges.
Kim Min-sun passed the finish line in first place with a record of 37 seconds and 90 seconds at the Women’s 500m Division A at the 2022-2023 season International Skating Union (ISU) Speed Skating World Cup 5th Competition held in Tomaszow, Poland on the 11th (Korean time).
As Kim Min-seon won all 500m events in the five World Cup events held up to this day, she maintained her first place온라인바카라 in the World Cup women’s 500m world rankings.
If she wins one World Cup event, she will receive 1500 dollars (about 1.9 million won), and if she takes first place overall in the World Cup event, she will receive 16,000 dollars (about 20.32 million won). She said that if Kim Min-sun wins all of her six tournaments, she can earn $25,000 (approximately 31.76 million won) through this World Cup.
She has Kim Min-sun come to mind as her current strongest player, but her World Cup gold medals so far pale in comparison to her legendary players.
However, through the past moves of her legends, she can predict her prospects mixed with expectations that Kim Min-sun will also reign as the strongest for many seasons to come. She said that once she reached the top, it was relatively easy to solidify her solo system.
Jeni Wolf, a legendary German speed skater who dominated the mid-2000s, won 49 gold medals in the World Cup. Bonnie Blair (USA), who was active in the 1980s and 1990s, won 39, Lee Sang-hwa 36, Kodaira Nao (Japan) 28, and Catriona Lemeidon (Canada) 27.
They swept the World Cup championship while maintaining the top spot for as short as 5 years and as long as 10 years.
For Kim Min-seon, the gold medal in the Winter Olympics is also expected to motivate her. If Kim Min-seon maintains his condition with the goal of the Milan-Cortina d’Am Pezzo Winter Olympics to be held in February 2026, he can win more medals around his neck.
Back injury recurrence is something to avoid. After performing poorly at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Kim Min-seon had a back injury that put her on hold for two years. If she can prevent a recurrence of injury by taking good care of her waist, Kim Min-sun’s golden age can be opened in the women’s 500m on ice.
