A 10-year-old child who watched the figure skating competition at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics will participate in the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics (hereinafter referred to as Gangwon 2024), which opens on the 19th, and stand on the same ice where stars walked The main character is Shin Ji-ah (Yeongdong Middle School), who over the past 6 years has grown into a leading female figure skater in Korea. Shin Ji-ah, who met with Yonhap News on the 10th, showed a photo taken six years ago in the stands of the Gangneung Ice Arena, where the figure skating competition was held at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, and imagined showing off a clean performance at the upcoming Gangwon 2024.
For Shin Ji-ah, who saw the performances of world-class athletes competing in the Olympics, Gangneung Ice Arena is a ‘dream stage. ’In particular, the performance of superstar Yuzuru Hanyu (Japan), who won the men’s singles title twice in a row at the 2014 Sochi and 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, remained deeply in my mind. Shin Ji-ah recalled her memory at the time, saying, “I watched Hanyu with great interest. He was a very good jumper.” Just as a craftsman does not blame his tools, the fact that he has never played at the Gangneung Ice Arena is not a problem for Shin Jia.
Since the Pyeongchang Olympics, no ice skating competition has been held at Gangneung Ice Arena. Shin Ji-ah said resolutely, “Anyway, the ice quality is different every time I go to an overseas competition. I just need to get used to it quickly during official practice. ”Considering that it is a mega event held at home, the enthusiastic support of Korean fans is said to be more of a strength than a burden. Shin Ji-ah, who takes good care of her body by avoiding crowded places and frequently wearing a mask, recently contracted the flu. But Shin Ji-ah doesn’t even care about this. Shin Ji-ah said, “I am exercising while receiving an IV. My body seems to be 카지노사이트킹 recovering quickly. The injection does not hurt at all.”
