‘New Empress of Ice’ Kim Min-seon (24, Uijeongbu City Hall) failed to win the World Cup title by staying at the silver medal in the last event of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup this season.
Kim Min-sun won her silver medal in the women’s 500 m at the 6th competition of the 2022-2023 ISU Speed Skating World Cup held at the Rodova Arena in Toma Schup Mazowiecki, Poland on the 18th with 38 seconds 08.

If Kim Min-sun, who previously won the 500m in the 1st to 5th World Cup competitions, won the gold medal in her final 6th competition, she could achieve the feat of ‘all-time World Cup 500m crown in one season’ for the first time ever. Min-sun Kim ran the relatively weak first 100m section in 10.49 (2nd place overall), but she did not show as much power in the second half of the race as she did in the previous event, and she settled into second place.
Min-seon Kim participated in the World Cup, Four Continents Championships, Winter Universiade, and Winter Sports this season, and her stamina has declined. In particular, the Universiade was held in an outdoor stadium, which added to the burden of physical strength.
However, Min-sun Kim retained her No. 1 spot in the women’s 500m World Cup this season with her total of 354 points. Her gap with Hairchoke (301 points) in 2nd place and Erin Jackson (USA 241 points) in 3rd place is overwhelming. Hairchoke finished second behind Kim Min-seon in the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th competitions, and then won her first gold medal in her last competition.
Kim Min-seon is also called the successor of Lee Sang-hwa (retired) as a Korean short-distance signboard. Overcoming her back injury, he showed his true worth in earnest by winning the 500m personal best (36.96) at her 4th World Cup this season. She is still a growing player, so she can also surpass the world record held by Lee Sang-hwa (36 seconds 36) and the record for the most consecutive World Cup wins by a Korean player (10 times).
Kim Min-sun will train in Europe and challenge to become her first world champion at the World Championships in Heerenvein, the Netherlands, starting on the 2nd of next month.
