Kim Min-seon, who ran alongside Goetsu in the Group 9 in-course, passed her first 100m in a slightly slower time of 10.53 seconds.

Her time was 6th overall, and she was 0.22 seconds slower than Jackson (10.31 seconds), who took gold.

However, he showed his spirit with his unique spirit of racing and climbed to the podium in 3rd place overall.

Min-seon Kim has continued her medal streak since winning a bronze medal in the second race of the women’s 500m at the second World Cup held in November last year.

Kim Min-sun, who added 48 ranking points to her ranking, maintained her second place spot with 400 points.

First place is Jackson, who accumulated 434 points.

Kim Min-seon is aiming for a come-from-behind overall victory in the final World Cup tournament to be held in Quebec, Canada starting from the 2nd of next month.

Lee Na-hyun (Nowon High School), who competed in the same event that day, ranked 5th, setting a new junior world record of 37.34 seconds.

Lee Na-hyun set a new Korean junior record of 37.48 seconds at the Four Continents Championships held at the same location on the 21st, and broke the world junior record in just one week.

The junior world record in this event has deep ties to Korea.

In 2007, ‘Ice Queen’ Lee Sang-hwa (37.81 seconds) and in 2017, ‘New Ice Queen’ Kim Min-seon (37.78 seconds) set new records.

The world record, which Korea had held for over 10 years, was broken by the Netherlands’ Fecker Kok (37.45 seconds) in 2020, but was brought back by Lee Na-hyun on this day.
