2022 Beijing Winter Olympics short track gold medalist Hwang Dae-heon (24, Gangwon Provincial Office) announced his recovery from injury and pledged to revive.

Hwang Dae-heon was appointed as the public relations ambassador for the 2023 Seoul International Skating Union (ISU) World Short Track Championships at the Genesis BBQ Group International Conference Room in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 9th.

Hwang Dae-heon, who won the men’s 1,500m short track gold medal and the 5,000m relay silver medal at the Beijing Olympics, gave up the 2022-23 season national selection due to a back injury. Therefore, instead of being unable to participate in the World Championships held at the Mokdong Ice Rink in Seoul on the 10th and 12th of next month, he took on the role of a public relations ambassador.

Hwang Dae-heon made up his mind to return next season. He said, “I think I will try to be better in the upcoming selections.” He also smiled, saying, “I think a player should not be without confidence,” and “I will always face it with confidence even if it is not a sport, so I will try to face it with confidence this time.”

Hwang Dae-heon, who is spending a먹튀검증 relatively leisurely season working hard to recover from his injury, said, “I did new things such as appearing in entertainment and received treatment for a back injury.” Still, “I feel that the position of the national team is precious. It is such a desperate place,” he said.

Park Ji-won (Seoul City Hall), who emerged as an ace by winning 13 gold medals, 5 silver medals, and 1 bronze medal in 6 international competitions this season, also ignited Hwang Dae-heon’s will to return. Hwang Dae-heon said, “I feel good and motivated when my fellow runners perform well.

Hwang Dae-heon did not avoid the question about Lin Xiaojun and said, “I don’t care. When he gets on the starting line, he always does his best.” Xiaojun Lin has been naturalized in China since the ‘sexual harassment incident’ that occurred between Hwang Dae-heon in 2019 and is active as a player.

Meanwhile, at this world championship, which marks the 48th, South Korea’s women’s overall winner Choi Min-jeong (Seongnam City Hall) last season, and Park Ji-won, who won the ISU World Cup men’s overall ranking this season, will participate.

Hwang Dae-heon said, “I am very honored to be the ambassador for this big event. For the successful hosting of the event, I will take responsibility for the position of public relations ambassador and do my best to publicize the event,” he said.
