Short track skater Min-jeong Choi revealed her determination for the Beijing Olympics in an interview with SBS. A collision injury during the World Cup was rather a trick, and in Beijing, he vowed to surpass the two gold medals at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Correspondent Kim Hyung-yeol.

Since the first World Cup of the season, they collided twice and lost the gold medal in front of them and suffered injuries, but Choi Min-jung was full of positive energy.

While paying more attention to taking care of his body, he revealed that during the last World Cup, his condition improved enough to approach his former skills.

[최민정/쇼트트랙 국가대표 : (충돌·부상은) ‘액땜’이라고 생각하고 이번 월드컵 시리즈를 바탕으로 베이징 올림픽을 더 잘 준비할 수 있는 계기가 된 것 같아서 더 좋게 생각하고 있어요.]

He said that not being able to leave the Jincheon Athletes’ Village due to the corona crisis is rather helpful.

[최민정/쇼트트랙 국가대표 : (코로나 때문에) 저는 오히려 (선수촌) 안에만 있으면서 훈련할 수 있는 시간이 더 많아서 괜찮았던 것 같아요.]

She said that she wanted to focus on her own race rather than opponents such as swiping.

[최민정/쇼트트랙 국가대표 : 저 스스로와의 싸움이라고 계속 생각을 해서 제가 얼마나 더 기량을 높일 수 있는지 그 부분에만 더 신경을 쓰게 되는 것 같아요.]

Choi Min-jung, nicknamed the Ice Princess for her expressionless expression, said that she would smile brightly once more after running a golden race like in Pyeongchang.

He promised the best gift to both himself and his fans, not only in individual events, but also winning three consecutive women’s relay and first victory in mixed relay.

[최민정/쇼트트랙 국가대표 : (최민정 선수에게 평창 올림픽이란?) 나를 성장시켜줬던 것이다! (베이징 올림픽이란?) 나를 성장시켜 줄 것이다! (올림픽 중계는?) SBS. ‘꿀잼’ 경기 보여 드릴게요. 많은 응원 부탁드려요.]
