Fourth collision this season… The referee did not apply a penalty

Short track ace Park Ji-won (Seoul City Hall) clashed with Hwang Dae-heon (Gangwon Provincial Government) again and achieved the worst result.

A warning light has come on regarding selection for the national team for next season.

Park Ji-won failed to advance to the finals, finishing last in the group with a score of 1 minute 16.175 seconds in the men’s 500m semifinal group 2 of the 2024-205 season short track national team’s first qualifying round held at the Mokdong Ice Rink in Seoul on the 6th.

Park Ji-won, who placed second in the men’s 1,500m the previous day and earned 21 ranking points, failed to earn ranking points in the men’s 500m and fell to third place in the overall rankings.

The next season’s national team will be determined by the combined ranking points of the six individual events in the first and second qualifying rounds, and priority selection for individual competitions at international competitions will be given to the top three men and women.

Ji-won Park competed with Dae-heon Hwang, Jang-hyuk Park (Sports Toto), No-won Park (Hwaseong City Hall), Dong-wook Kim (Sports Toto), and Dong-min Shin (Korea University) in Group 2 of the men’s 500m semifinals.

Park Ji-won, who started as the first seed, started the race in second place.

Hwang Dae-heon chased right behind.

The crash occurred on the third curve of the first lap.

Dae-Heon Hwang squeezed through the in-course and overtook Ji-Won Park, and in the process, Ji-Won Park stumbled, was pushed back, and hit the fence.

Park Ji-won came to his senses and started the race again, but it was difficult to close the distance.

The referee did not award a penalty for the scene.

Daeheon Hwang advanced to the finals in second place, while Jiwon Park was eliminated.

The referee for the match was Italian international referee Alexadro Mauri.

Daeheon Hwang, who advanced to the finals, ranked 5th and received 5 ranking points.

This is the fourth time this season that Park Ji-won collided with Hwang Dae-heon and failed to win a medal.

Dae-heon Hwang committed a serious foul by pushing Ji-won Park, who was running ahead of him, from behind in the final of the 1,000m second race of the first competition of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup in October last year, and was given a yellow card (YC) and forfeited all points.

In the men’s 1,500m final at the ISU World Championships on March 17, Dae-Heon Hwang received a penalty for pushing Ji-Won Park with his body after forcing his way into the in-course.

And the next day, in the men’s 1,000m final, Hwang Dae-heon committed a foul by pushing Park Ji-won with his hand when he gave him the lead.

Park Ji-won failed to win a medal in all three games.

In particular, because he failed to win a gold medal at the World Championships, he lost automatic selection to the national team for the next season.

If Park Ji-won, who ranked first in the world in the 2023-2024 ISU World Cup Series, is not selected for the national team next season, it will be uncertain whether he will be able to participate in the 2026 Milan/Cortina d’Ampezzo Winter Olympics due to military service obligations.

Hwang Dae-heon, who received military service benefits, can participate in the Olympics regardless of whether he is selected for the national team next season.

Meanwhile, in the men’s 500m on this day, Lee Jeong-su (Seoul City Hall) took first place with a time of 41.181 seconds, followed by Kim Geon-woo (Sports Toto, 41.218 seconds) and Kim Tae-seong (Seoul City Hall, 41.225 seconds).

In the women’s 500m held on the same day, Shim Seok-hee (Seoul City Hall) took first place with 43.749 seconds, and Lee So-yeon (Sports Toto) and Choi Min-jeong (Seongnam City Hall) took second and third places.

On the 7th, the men’s and women’s 1,000m race will be held at the same location.
