(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kim Kyung-yun = Winter heroes who won gold medals at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics bow their heads ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

Lim Hyo-jun (26, China) and Shim Seok-hee (25, Seoul City Hall), both men and women short track signs in Korea, are representative.

Shim Seok-hee, who led the gold medal in the women’s 3,000m relay at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, lost her dream of participating in the Beijing Olympics when messages containing gossips from colleagues were released last year.

Shim Seok-hee, who received a disciplinary action from the national team suspension, showed her will to participate in the Olympics by taking legal action, but eventually was unable to step on the Olympic stage as the court rejected the application for injunction.

There is only one way for Shim Suk-hee to participate in the Beijing Olympics.

The Beijing Olympics will be postponed just like the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. It’s not easy in reality.

Lim Hyo-jun, who won the men’s 1,500m gold medal and the men’s 500m bronze medal in the short track at the Pyeongchang Olympics, will not be able to stand on the stage at the Beijing Olympics.

In June 2019, while playing pranks during training for the national team, he lowered the pants of a junior of the same sex to expose his lower body.

Lim Hyo-jun restored his honor when he was acquitted by holding a court battle over the charge of sexual harassment, but he made an irreversible choice during the trial.

He became a naturalized Chinese citizen to participate in the Beijing Winter Olympics.

According to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Olympic charter, Lim Hyo-jun was not allowed to participate in the Beijing Olympics in accordance with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Olympic Charter, which states that ‘for an athlete to change nationality and participate in the Olympics, three years must pass after the international competition in which he participated in the previous nationality’.

Hyo-Jun Lim failed to properly understand the rules, so the dream of winning the Olympics for the second time in a row was futile.

Recently, Lim Hyo-jun entered the Chinese national team selection, regardless of whether he participated in the Olympics or not, but he did not qualify for the national team as he did not finish in the top 3 in all the events he participated in.

Men’s mass start gold medalist Lee Seung-hoon (IHQ) in speed skating at the Pyeongchang Olympics also experienced ups and downs after the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Seung-Hoon Lee was embroiled in a dispute over training preference and corruption, and was suspended for one year for assaulting two younger players in the past and went through a period of self-reflection.

Seung-Hoon Lee aims to restore his honor by participating in the men’s mass start and men’s team pursuit at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
