Figure Skaters Cha Jun-hwan and Lee Hae-in Challenge to Win the World Championships for Two Consecutive Years



World Championships opens on the 21st... Cha Jun-hwan, men's and women's singles and ice dance sortie, aims for medal despite injury... Will Lee Hae-in escape from the slump?


Korean figure skating men's singles Cha Jun-hwan (Korea University) and women's singles Lee Hae-in (Korea University), who won silver medals at last year's World Championships, will attempt to win prizes for the second year in a row. 카지노사이트


Figure skating men's singles national team Cha Jun-hwan, Lee Si-hyung (Korea University), Kim Hyun-gyeom (Han Advertising), women's singles Lee Hae-in, Kim Chae-yeon (Suri High School), Yoo Young (Kyung Hee University), and ice dance Lim Hae-na and Quan-ye (Gyeonggi General) will compete on the 21st (Korean time) will participate in the 2024 International Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating World Championships, which will open at the Bell Center in Montreal, Canada.


On the first day, the 21st, there will be a women's single short program, on the 22nd there will be a men's single short program, on the 23rd there will be an ice dance rhythm dance and women's single free skating, and on the 24th there will be an ice dance free dance and men's single free skating.


No Korean athletes participate in the pairs event.


The World Championships are the second most prestigious international competition after the Olympics and are the best stage to end a season.


In Korean figure skating history, the only athlete to win a gold medal at the World Championships is Yuna Kim (2009, 2013).


Korean figure skating, which had been away from winning a medal at the World Championships, achieved its best results last year.


Lee Hae-in, who competed in the women's singles, won a silver medal with 220.94 points, becoming the first Korean athlete to reach the podium in 10 years after Yuna Kim, and Cha Jun-hwan also won a silver medal with 296.03 points, making him the first Korean male athlete to win a World Championships title.


It was the first time that both men and women were standing together.


With the two players' silver medals, Korea secured three tickets each for the men's and women's singles to participate in this season's World Championships.


Korea is also waiting for good luck at this year's World Championships.


However, compared to last year, the possibility of winning is small.


Cha Jun-hwan has not yet fully recovered from his injury.


Cha Jun-hwan, who suffered from a right ankle nerve injury ahead of the start of the 2023-2024 season, was unable to complete the ISU Senior Grand Prix competition.


He was unable to show his full potential at the national team selection event for the new season early this year due to injury.


Cha Jun-hwan has recently been improving his physical condition again.


Last month, he showed off his health by winning a bronze medal at the ISU Four Continents Championships held in Shanghai, China.


Lee Si-hyung, who competed in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, and Kim Hyun-gyeom, who won gold medals in the men's singles and team events at the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics, are considered dark horses.


The biggest opponent of Korean male singles players is Japanese figure skater Uno Shoma.


Uno, who won a silver medal at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and a bronze medal at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, is aiming for his third consecutive World Championship title through this tournament.


Uno, who uses multiple quadruple jumps, surpasses Korean players in terms of technique.


The skills of Ilya Malinin of the United States, who performs the extremely difficult quadruple axel jump, Yuma Kagiyama of Japan, a silver medalist at the Beijing Olympics, and Adang Xiaoyingpa (France), the European champion, are also formidable.


Many excellent players will also participate in the women's singles event.


Although the world's best Russian athletes will not participate in this competition due to disciplinary action, most of the top athletes have applied to participate, including Beijing Olympic bronze medalist Kaori Sakamoto (Japan) and Luna Hendricks (Belgium), who has recently won the World Championships for two consecutive years.


Lee Hae-in, who won the silver medal at last year's World Championships, is expected to compete fiercely with them.


But the situation is not so good.


Lee Hae-in suffered from extreme slump this season.


He failed to win a single medal in the Grand Prix series, and dropped to 11th place at the Four Continents Championships last month.


Rather, Kim Chae-yeon, who shows consistent skills in each competition she participates in, may have a higher chance of winning a medal.


Chae-yeon Kim placed 6th at last year's World Championships and 4th at the Four Continents Championships, and took second place at this year's Four Continents Championships and reached the podium.


Attention is also focused on whether Yooyoung, who had considered retirement due to a long slump, will make a comeback.


After the Beijing Olympics, Yoo Young continued to perform extremely poorly and continued to fall, including losing his status as a member of the national team.


However, Yoo Young placed 7th at the domestic comprehensive championships last January, returning to the national team after a year and taking the last train to the world championships.


Meanwhile, at the Junior World Championships held early this month, the men's single Seo Min-gyu (Gyeongshin High School) won the gold medal, and the women's single Shin Ji-ah (Sehwa Girls' High School) won the silver medal, successfully winning both men's and women's medals.


Now it's the seniors' turn.
