The Korean women’s short track was again blocked by the Netherlands. In 2023, the KB International Ice Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Championships Women’s 3000m relay was a disappointing runner-up.
Korea recorded 4:09:151 in the women’s 3000m relay final held at the Mokdong Ice Rink in Seoul on the 12th, failing to overcome the Netherlands’ wall and claiming the silver medal.안전놀이터
‘Short track empress’ Choi Min-jeong, who only finished with silver medals in the 1500m and 1000m, tried her first gold medal, but unfortunately, she finished the event with only three silver medals.
On this day, Korea, composed of Choi Min-jung, Kim Gil-li, Sim Suk-hee, and Kim Gun-hee, maintained second place, alternating the lead with the Netherlands at the beginning of the race. Korea, which was only looking for a gap to overcome the Netherlands while enduring the pursuit of Italy and Canada, recaptured the lead with 11 laps left and Choi Min-jeong riding a half lap.
However, with 8 laps to go, Korea lost the lead to the Netherlands again and was pushed back to 3rd place with 5 laps left due to a touch mistake. Korea, which rose to second place with three laps left, had the last runner, Gilly Kim, dig into the inside, but could not overcome the centrifugal force and crossed the finish line in second place.
