3 gold medals in the 6th WC competition… 1st Place
ISU Crystal Trophy ‘Shining’
Park Ji-Won (27, Seoul City Hall) of the Korean men’s short track team has been noted for her solid cornering skills since her rookie days. He stood out for his ‘outside pass’ and game management ability to beat opponents with explosive spurts without slowing down even while making a very large turn on the out-course.
If there was a downside, it was that the ups and downs were severe and the national team selection was sluggish. Since the 2015-2016 season, his senior debut season, only 3 out of 7 seasons have been selected for the national team. His participation in the Olympics was also unsatisfactory.
Park Ji-won, who had온라인바카라endured for a long time, stood tall as the world’s best skater as well as the national team’s ace this season.
Park Ji-won won the gold medal with a record of 1:25:359 in the second race of the men’s 1000 at the 2022-2023 International Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Cup 6th competition held in Dordrecht, the Netherlands on the 13th, and also in the men’s 5000 relay. He led the championship as a runner.
Park Ji-won, who won three gold medals in this event following the men’s 1500m the previous day, took first place in the individual overall this season with a total score of 1068 in the World Cup rankings. The gap between 2nd place Hong Gyeong-hwan (674 points, Goyang City Hall) and 3rd place Stephen Dubois (668 points, Canada) was also large. It is also true that Park Ji-won won 12 gold medals in the 1st to 6th World Cups. He dominated 9 events, including 5 in the main event, 1500m and 4 in 1000m.
For Park Ji-won, winning the World Cup this time has a special meaning. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the World Cup this season, the ISU awards a special trophy, the Crystal Globe, to the top men and women based on the results of the 1st to 6th World Cup competitions, and Park Ji-won became the first winner. Park Ji-won was delighted, saying, “He became the first Crystal Globe winner and he wanted to be a part of short track history.” The key now is whether to decorate the spectacular finale of the 2022-2023 season at the World Championships held in Seoul next month.
