Lee Hae-in (18, Sehwa Girls’ High School), who won the women’s singles at the International Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating Four Continents Championships, became the first Korean athlete in 14 years since Kim Yu-na (33) to win the title. The 104th National Winter Sports Festival stayed in 4th place in the girls’ high school division.

Lee Hae-in scored 134.96 points, a total of 67.92 points in technical score (TES) and 67.04 points in art point (PCS), in the Figure Skating Girls’ High School Single A Free Skating at the Winter Games held at the Uijeongbu Indoor Ice Rink in Gyeonggi-do on the 19th.

Lee Hae-in, who scored a final total of 193.23, finished the event in 4th place. Kim Chae-yeon (17, Surigo), who received 212.09 points, won the championship. Wi Seo-young (18, Suri High School) ranked second with 202.49 points, and Kim Min-chae (17, Shin Jeong High School) ranked third with 199.58 points.

Lee Hae-in, who finished fifth in her short program the day before, singled her first jump in her triple lutz + double toe loop + double loop combination jump. The triple flip that followed was pointed out as a quarter landing (marked with q: when the number of jump rotations was insufficient at the level of 90 degrees). 온라인바카라

However, Lee Hae-in did a good job by cleaning up her remaining elements.

After the game, she said, “I had a sty in my left eye. It was difficult (to play) because I couldn’t see her eyes well when I applied the ointment and went to the game.” She continued, “I thought it was important to get a feel for the competition. I made mistakes in the free skating, but I think I did well in the rest and I’m satisfied.”

Lee Hae-in won the ISU Four Continents Championships, which ended on the 12th in Colorado Springs, USA. After returning to Korea on the 14th after finishing this tournament, he participated in the sports event in a situation that was not normal.

He said, “I thought I was okay, but my body wasn’t okay,” and then said, “I tried to do it until the end, but I had the experience of playing in a bad condition.”

Perhaps because of his victory at the Four Continents Championships, Lee Hae-in received warm support from domestic fans. He thanked the crowd, saying, “I was nervous before the game, but they came a long way and cheered me on, giving me strength.” He continued, “I was embarrassed because my vision was blocked in the middle (with the right ointment because of the sty).

Lee Hae-in revealed that he was greatly encouraged by the support of his teammates at the Four Continents Championships. As an individual sport, figure skating rarely trains and participates in competitions as a team with peers.

However, last summer, Lee Hae-in had his first training camp with his national teammates at the Jincheon National Training Center. He also participated in many international competitions with his colleagues, strengthening teamwork more than ever.

He said with a laugh, “I felt a sense of competition with other players before. He continued, “I trained together at the Jincheon National Training Center, and I became very close with his older brothers, and the older sisters also developed from being awkward to being close. I’m happy about this.”

Regarding the remaining World Championships, he said, “I will practice hard every day without worrying. Lee Hae-in added, “I want to show a better image while always being grateful.”
