On her first day at the 54th President’s Cup National Men’s and Women’s Speed Skating Championships held at the Taereung Ice Rink in Seoul on the 1st,
Kim Min-seon took first place in the women’s 500m with a time of 38.05 seconds.
Although it falls short of the personal best record (36.96 seconds),
it is not bad considering that it was achieved at the Taereung Ice Rink.
Taereung Ice Rink’s facilities are outdated and the ice quality is poor,
so records are not as good as those of major foreign ice rinks.
This day’s record is especially noteworthy considering that Kim Min-seon recently changed her skating shoes.
Skating World Cup
Athletes usually replace old shoes every two to three years, but during the replacement season,
personal records tend to drop due to the need for an adaptation process.
Jegal Seong-ryeol, coach of Uijeongbu City Hall, said in a phone call,
“Kim Min-sun changed her skate shoes ahead of the start of this season.
This is because we decided now was the right time to show off her best skills at the 2026 Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo Winter Olympics.” explained.
He continued, “I was worried at first, but Kim Min-seon adapted quickly and well.
Especially when playing in new shoes, the angle of the foot can change slightly, so the record may drop,
but Kim Min-seon set a good record even in these adverse conditions.” explained.
In addition, he predicted, “If Kim Min-seon plays in international competitions in the new season and adapts perfectly to the new shoes, he will be able to perform even better.”
Kim Min-seon is the world’s best sprinter, sweeping the women’s 500m gold medals from the first to the fifth competitions of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup last season.
In particular, she won the women’s 500m at the 4th competition of the 2022-2023 ISU World Cup held in December last year with an incredible record of 36.96 seconds.
After checking her physical condition and new shoes, Kim Min-seon plans to compete in the first round of the 2023-2024 ISU Speed Skating World Cup,
which opens in Obihiro, Hokkaido, Japan on the 10th,
start hunting for medals at international competitions in the new season.
