Hae-in Hae-in, a figure skater who raised his head despite frustration, “didn’t give up”

Lee Hae-in (18, Sehwa Girls’ High School), who won a medal at the International Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating World Championships 10 years after Kim Yu-na 메이저놀이터(retired) and emerged as a Korean female singles player, is very satisfied that she has dispelled her doubts about herself. revealed

Lee Hae-in, who returned to Korea via Gimpo International Airport on the 27th, said at a meeting with reporters, “There was a little bit of doubt about me, but through this competition, she realized that I could do better. . Even though she didn’t do well at the beginning of the season, it’s rewarding that she didn’t give up until the end (leading to her medal win),” she said.

Lee Hae-in rewrote Korean figure skating history. Lee Hae-in, who won the gold medal at the Four Continents Championships in Colorado last month, also took her silver medal at the World Championships. He recorded her total score of 220.94 points (73.62 points in short and 147.32 points in free) at the 2023 World Championships held at Super Arena in Saitama Prefecture, Japan on the 24th, and won the silver medal. It is the first splendid achievement in 10 years since Yuna Kim won the event in 2013.

Lee Hae-in, who walked out of the arrival hall with a silver medal at the World Championships, said, “I wanted to participate in the World Championships the most out of all competitions this season, and I was so happy to be able to participate.” I thought so, and I took part in this competition. It feels good to be able to give my best performance this season,” she said.

Lee Hae-in failed to compete in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics due to being pushed by his teammate. He has not been able to stand on the podium in the Grand Prix this season. Lee Hae-in did not collapse. He won medals at the season-ending Four Continents Championships and the World Championships. He said, “Rather than being regretful (not being able to participate in the Olympics), what I couldn’t do was not to be able to go. He said, “I thought, ‘I will show a lot of what I can do’ even in this season.”

Lee Hae-in, who received a “congratulations” message from her role model Kim Yuna, now looks higher. He said, “I want to perform a triple axel jump (rotating 3 and a half times) next season.” I will train hard,” he promised.
