[“Keep your seat!”]
During the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, Coach C and Shim Suk-hee gossiped about the players via text message, and in particular, there was a contention that he would intentionally trip Choi Min-jung, which caused a great controversy.
As a result, he was suspended for six months as a leader, but less than a year after the suspension was lifted, he made an appearance in the national team selection competition.
[Coach C: “(Did you come back now that the disciplinary action is over?) I won’t say anything.”]
Since the disciplinary period is over, there is no problem with the rules.
However, it is understandable that the leader who caused serious moral problems appeared again in the national team selection match. It is difficult to do.
It is pointed out that the moral insensitivity of the ice skating world that a leader needs only skills is once again
revealed. (By the way) leaving the girls in charge (doesn’t make sense).”]
Shim Suk-hee finished 4th overall in the women’s division in the first round of selection.
Hwang Dae-heon, a gold medalist at the Beijing Olympics, fell during the 1,000m event and finished 8th overall, making it impossible to guarantee participation in the individual event at an international competition next season.
