When it comes to the strong events of China’s Summer Olympic Games, you can say many things, but when it comes to the strong events of the Winter Olympic Games, it must be short track speed skating.Short track speed skating, short track speed skating, can be thought of as the main track and field event of the Summer Olympics — running.It’s a very popular sport at the Winter Olympics, full of speed and passion, power and collision.The Canadian short track speed skating team started in Canada in the latter part of the 19th century. When you go to Canadian cities like Montreal and Quebec, there are lots of indoor speed skating venues and lots of different levels of competition.By the 1900s, short track speed skating had become a popular winter sport in North America.Canada has held national short track speed skating championships since 1905, and the United States has held short track speed skating competitions with Canada since 1921.In 1975, the International Skating Union established the Speed Skating Technical Committee, which established uniform rules for speed skating.It can be seen that short track speed skating is a traditional strong project in North America.Short track Speed Skating and the Winter Olympics 1992 Albertville, France Short track speed skating became a demonstration sport at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.Similar to the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, esports became a demonstration event.Four years later, short track speed skating became an official sport at the Winter Olympics in Albertville, France.Li Yan of China won the second place in women’s 500-meter short track speed skating, which was the first medal of China’s Winter Olympics and also showed the level of China’s short track speed skating to the world for the second time.Why the second time?She won one gold and two bronzes in the 1988 exhibition competition.As we know from the origins of short track speed skating, strong competitors must include Canada and the United States.So what other countries?European and American countries as well as the UK, Russia, the Netherlands, Norway strength should not be underestimated.The Asian countries are mainly Japan and South Korea.Let’s introduce the situation of South Korea: The geographical position of South Korea is more suitable for carrying out winter sports.Korea is one of the world’s leading powers in short track speed skating.Korea ranks no. 1 in The history of speed skating MEDALS in Asia and no. 10 in the world with five gold, seven silver and seven bronze MEDALS.But South Korea, which won a silver medal in 1992, did not emerge with three golds until the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.Lee Sang-hwa of South Korea still holds the women’s 500-meter short track record of 36.36 seconds.However, in recent years, Korea’s short track speed skating has been a bit of a wane, Lee seung-hoon participated in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, this year’s Beijing Winter Olympics, still selected.Kim Bo-ryeon and Park Jin-won, who lost the women’s speed skating team event at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, publicly criticized their teammates.You don’t show any face to your teammates, and your opponents have to be more careful.The Chinese short track Speed Skating Team achieved a breakthrough of zero gold MEDALS at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.Yang Yang won two gold MEDALS in the women’s 500-meter and 1,000-meter short track speed skating, an event that has been declared as China’s traditional strength in ice and snow sports.In the following winter Olympic Games, China won gold MEDALS in short track speed skating. Wang Meng won 4 gold MEDALS in Turin and Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, becoming the athlete who won the most gold MEDALS in the history of Chinese Winter Olympic Games.Zhou Yang won the women’s 1,500 meters in vancouver and Sochi.Wu Dajing became the first Chinese male short-track speed skater to win a Gold medal at the Winter Olympics by winning the 500 meters in a world record time at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.Men’s Team: Wu Dajing, Ren Ziwei, Sun Long, Li Wenlong, Zhang Tianyi Women’s Team:Fan Kexin, Qu Chunyu, Zhang Yuting, Zhang Chutong, Han Yutong, Fan Kexin and Wu Dajing, among the 10 athletes, Wu Dajing and Fan Kexin have competed in the Winter Olympics since the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Qu Chunyu, Han Yutong, Ren Ziwei, Qu Chunyu and Han Yutong participated in the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.Wu dajing and Ren Ziwei performed well in the World Cup. Wu Dajing won the men’s 500m gold medal in The Netherlands, while Ren Ziwei won three individual gold MEDALS including the 1000m and 1500m.Zhang Tianyi, Zhang Chutong and five other young athletes will start their first Winter Olympics in Beijing.Zhang Tianyi, born in 2004, and Zhang Chutong, born in 2003, are the youngest players on the men’s and women’s teams.Several young players have performed well in the World Cup.The current short-track speed skating is a bit like the Chinese badminton team in the Tokyo Olympics. I believe that there will be a lot of household names in the course of the Winter Olympics.At the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, China won the gold medal in the men’s 500-meter short-track speed skating, the silver medal in the women’s 1,500-meter short-track speed skating, and the silver medal in the men’s 5,000-meter relay.After four years of hibernation, this is the home competition, I believe that The Chinese short track speed skater, will definitely out of this bad temper.
