In the end, we did it.
Lee Hae-in (17, Sehwa Girls’ High School), a rising star in women’s figure skating, won a valuable silver medal around her neck. In the women’s single free skating at the International Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating World Championships held at Super Arena in Saitama, Japan on the 24th, she received a technical score (TES) of 75.53 points and a artistic score (PCS) of 71.79 points, a total of 147.32 points. Lee Hae-in, who scored 73.62 points in the short program on the 22nd, placed second overall with a total score of 220.94 points. The gold medal went to Japan’s Kaori Sakamoto. Following up on her last year, she achieved her second consecutive World Championship title.
The Figure Skating World Championships are the second most prestigious event after the Olympics. Until now, the only Korean player to reach the podium was Kim Yu-na, the ‘Queen of Figure Skating’. She has collected 6 medals (2 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze) in her personal career. She started with her bronze medal in 2007, where she won the first world championship medal in Korean figure skating history. Her last is a gold medal in 2013. After Yuna Kim retired, her medal life was temporarily cut off. Yooyoung (Surigo) ranked 5th in the women’s singles last year, the best performance by a Korean player.바카라사이트
Lee Hae-in did it after 10 years. He broke his personal high and smiled widely. Her score of 220.94 is a whopping 16.42 points higher than her previous ISU-recognized highest score (213.52), which she set when she won the silver medal at last year’s Four Continents Championships. Lee Hae-in reached the highest point at the Four Continents Championships last month (210.84 points). It is the first feat she has achieved in 14 years since Yuna Kim in 2009 as a Korean player. She was once sluggish, and she was unsuccessful in participating in the 2022 Beijing Olympics, but she overcame it proudly.
Kim Chae-yeon (Surigo), who competed together, placed 6th. From her first senior world championships to her top 10, she revealed her hopes. In the free skating she scored 139.45 points and she marked a total score of 203.51 points. Thanks to Lee Hae-in and Kim Chae-yeon’s performance, Korea won three tickets for the women’s singles at the 2024 ISU Figure Skating World Championships. If there are 3 players participating, if the sum of the rankings of the top 2 players is within 13, they can get 3 tickets. ‘Figure skating general’ Kim Ye-rim (Dankook University) stayed in 18th place with a total score of 174.30.
