Lee Hae-in (18, Sehwa Girls’ High School), who participated in the International Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating World Team Trophy, a senior team event for the first time in her life, returned home in gold.
Lee Hae-in, who competed in the team trophy that ended on the 16th in Tokyo, Japan, returned home with his teammates through Gimpo Airport on the afternoon of the 17th.
The Team Trophy is a competition where a total of 6 countries with the best results during the season participate, and Lee Hae-in was the first to participate.
The team trophy gives ranking points to each ranking in men’s and women’s single and pair short programs, free skating, ice dance, rhythm dance, and free dance, and adds them up to determine the final ranking by country. Lee Hae-in took first place in both the women’s single short program and free skating, scoring 24 points.카지노사이트
Lee Hae-in, who finished the tournament in a good mood, said, “It wasn’t without pressure, but I wanted to help the team. I wanted to leave a good memory wearing the costumes I wore at the Grand Prix this season, but fortunately, I finished well.”
Lee Hae-in is rewriting Korean figure skating history this season. Lee Hae-in won the gold medal at the Four Continents Championships, the first in 14 years since Kim Yu-na, and also finished runner-up at the World Championships. It was the first time in 10 years since Kim Yu-na that a Korean figure skater won a medal at the World Championships.
Again, Lee Hae-in contributed greatly to Korea’s victory over Japan, earning the highest ranking points an individual could earn.
Lee Hae-in said, “Until now, I was alone in Kiss and Cryzone after finishing my acting, but this time my colleagues sat together to support and congratulate me. Especially, my character is a chick, and it was so fun that my colleagues used yellow props. Thanks to that, it was more meaningful.” “I think I became closer with my colleagues through this competition,” he said.
Ahead of his first group exhibition, Lee Hae-in drew pictures of his colleagues and gave them as gifts.
Lee Hae-in said, “I drew while looking for photos of my colleagues before the competition. I gave it as a gift and I was happy that everyone liked it.”
Colleagues also gave Lee Hae-in an unforgettable gift. On the 16th, the day the gala show was held was Lee Hae-in’s birthday, and his colleagues congratulated him with a cake.
Lee Hae-in said, “I didn’t expect it at all. Even if there was a birthday celebration, I thought it was after everyone’s performance was over, but a congratulatory song came right after my performance. It was the happiest birthday.” I tried.” He smiled and looked back.
Lee Hae-in struggled at the beginning of this season, but managed to bounce back at the last minute and finished the tournament with a smile.
Lee Hae-in said, “It worked well after changing the composition of the jumps from the Grand Prix held in France. I gained confidence as I composed my performance with jumps that I could perform confidently.” “It’s not over,” he said.
He added, “There were personal efforts, but many people around me helped and supported me. I had a lot of experiences. It was a meaningful season.”
