Lin Xiaojun, who competed in the men’s 500m final at the 5th World Cup, looked for an opportunity in the middle ranks and overturned the match at once.
With three laps to go, Tae-Sung Kim and Dubois of Canada collided with each other, quickly dug inside and took the lead, crossing the finish line스포츠토토 first.
This is the first time Lin Xiaojun, who naturalized as a Chinese citizen in 2020, has won an international gold medal.
Xiaojun Lin also won the relay race, where Korea failed to reach the final, and won two gold medals.
Lim Hyo-joon, who emerged as a male short track signboard by winning a gold medal wearing the Taegeuk mark at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, was naturalized in China the following year after being suspended from qualification for sexual harassment after pulling down his junior’s pants as a joke during training.
Under the name Xiaojun Lin, he returned to the international stage after almost four years this season, and is slowly regaining his former skills.
Park Ji-won, who emerged as the new ace of the men’s team without Hwang Dae-heon, won two gold medals by winning the 1,500m, and swept 11 gold medals until the 5th competition this season.
