Short track Gilly Kim secures qualifications for the individual competition at international competitions… Daeheon Hwang jumps to first place in the overall rankings
Kim Gil-ri (19, Seongnam City Hall), a ‘short track prospect’, won the qualification to participate in the individual competition at the international competition.
Kim Gil-ri was the first to cross the finish line with a record of 2 minutes 25 seconds 327 in the women’s 1,500m final of the 2023-2024 season national team second qualifying round held at the Jincheon National Training 메이저사이트Center in Chungcheongbuk-do on the 22nd.
She scored 55 points in the first round of matches held on the 19th and 20th, and Kim Gil-ri, who came in first, added 34 points on the 22nd and maintained the lead with 89 points. Shim Seok-hee (Seoul City Hall), who won the 500m, ranked second with 79 points, Kim A-rang (Goyang City Hall) third with 55 points, and Park Ji-won (Jeonbuk Provincial Office, 53 points) ranked fourth.
In the women’s division, the 1st to 3rd place in this selection round will receive priority in the individual and team events at international competitions, and the 4th to 5th places in the team event. The 6th to 8th place train together in the national team, and if there is a vacancy, they are qualified to compete in international competitions.
Even if fourth-place Ji-Won Park took first place in her final 1,000m and won 34 points, Gilly Kim secured at least a third place, allowing her to compete in her individual event.
In the men’s division, Hwang Dae-heon took first place in the men’s 1,500m in the second round of the 2023-2024 season short track national team selection, and then came second in the men’s 500m.
Hwang Dae-heon added 55 ranking points in the two events held on the day and rose to first place in the overall ranking with a total of 68 points. Kim Geon-woo (Sports Toto), who tied with Hwang Dae-heon, was ranked second according to the sum of rankings in each event.
If Hwang Dae-heon finishes second or higher in the men’s 1,000m men’s 1,000m second round of the national team selection event to be held on the 23rd, he will be qualified to compete in the individual event of the next season’s international competition.
Hwang Dae-heon and Kim Geon-woo ranked 1st and 2nd in the middle of the men’s division, followed by Seo Ira (55 points) and Jang Seong-woo (42 points).
The final ranking is determined by summing up the rankings in the 1st and 2nd rounds of the national team selection competition. Only one event was left for this event, the 1,000m on the 23rd.
