Figure skating female singles Lee Hae-in (18, Sehwa Girls’ High School) challenges to win a medal at the International Skating Union (ISU) World Championships in 10 years since Kim Yu-na (retired). On the 23rd, she will compete in the women’s singles free skating at the 2023 ISU Figure Skating World Championships at Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. It is scheduled to be postponed at 9:00 pm Korean time.

Lee Hae-in, who scored 210.84 points at the ISU Four Continents Championships last month, becoming the first Korean to win a gold medal in 14 years since Yuna Kim (2009), is also challenging to win a medal at the World Championships for the first time in 10 years. In Korean figure skating, there has been no world championship medal since Yuna Kim won in 2013. Yooyoung (Surigo) ranked 5th last year, the highest record for a Korean player. Yuna Kim won all 6 of her Korean medals (2 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze).

Lee Hae-in’s clean performance in the short program increased her chances of winning a medal. He received a total of 73.62 points (39.51 technical points, 34.11 artistic points) in the short program of the same competition on the 22nd and placed second out of 35 players. It is the highest individual short program score (previous 70 points at the 2020 Junior World Championships). Kaori Sakamoto (Japan) ranked first with 79.24 points, and Mai Mihara (Japan, 73.46 points) ranked third.

In the short program, Lee Hae-in started her performance with a clean double axel and triple lutz-triple toe loop combination jump in line with Eric Radford’s storm. The Flying Camel Spin was postponed at 4, the highest difficulty. In the second half of the jump, where an additional 10% is added, the triple flip was smoothly digested, and the GOE score was 1.44.

Lee Hae-in, who said she focused on physical recovery and clean acting after the National Winter Sports Festival, also performed well in her strong point, spin. He finished off his performance with a clean finish of the sit spin (level 4) step sequence (level 3)토토사이트 and change foot combination spin (level 4). Cheers erupted from the crowd.

Lee Hae-in, who met with this magazine before departure and said, “I regretted ‘breaking’ at last year’s World Championships,” said Lee Hae-in, who finished his short program performance that day, through his management company All That Sports, “I really wanted to participate in the World Championships, but I looked good.” I am happy to be able to show you. He tried to carry on the confidence he gained at the Four Continents Championships (in the short program at the World Championships).”

Lee Hae-in’s strength is ‘mental’. It is evaluated that he stands out for his ability to make up for mistakes quickly. After failing to achieve good results throughout the season, such as finishing 4th in both the 1st and 3rd Grand Prix competitions, she won the gold medal at the Four Continents Championships. There is a high chance of medaling at the World Championships, where Russian players do not participate. Lee Hae-in, who had been silent throughout the season, unable to establish a relationship with the podium, will perform a double-pole electrode at the last minute.

In the free skating at the Four Continents Championships, Hae-in Lee scored a total of 141.71 points with a technical score (TES) of 74.96 and an artistic score (PCS) of 66.75 points, recording the highest score of the season. This is why winning medals at the world championships is more expected. Lee Hae-in said, “It would be a lie if I said I didn’t feel any pressure in the remaining free games, but since it’s a tournament I really wanted to come to, I want to enjoy it and show a good performance until the end.”
