The golden age of women’s figure skating… World ranking TOP 10 3 Koreans

The 2022-23 women’s figure skating ended the main schedule for individual events with the closing of the International Skating Union (ISU) World Championships on the 26th.

In the women’s figure skating singles world rankings released by the International Skating Federation reflecting the results of the World Championships, South Korea has ▲4th place Lee Hae-in (18, Sehwa Girls’ High School) ▲6th place Kim Ye-rim (20, Dankook University) ▲9th place Yoo Young (19). 3 finished the season in the top 10.

Compared to 2004-2014, when absolute ace Kim Yuna (33), the “Queen of Figure Skating”, won 17 major competitions (9 golds, 6 silvers, 2 bronzes), there is no world number one, but now, with many talented people, the development of the sport and the base In terms of expansion, it is more positive.

In the 2022-23 season, Lee Hye-in won the silver medal at the World Championships, the gold medal at the Four Continents Championships, and the bronze medal at the 4th Challenger Series. The ‘Challenger Series’ is the concept of the second division of figure skating by the International Skating Federation following the Grand Prix Series (first division).

Kim Ye-rim won silver medals at the Four Continents Championships this season, won 1 gold and 1 silver in the Grand Prix Series, 2 gold medals in the Challenger Series, and won gold medals at the FISU Winter World Games (Winter Universiade).

Yoo Young led the rise of Korea at the beginning of the 2022-23 women’s figure skating season with a bronze medal in the second competition of the Grand Prix Series and a silver medal in the first competition of the Challenger Series.

Of course, we must not forget the cold reality of achievements achieved while the stars of the world’s strongest country, who are recognized by others, are absent. Russia was kicked out of the world of sports after it invaded Ukraine in February last year.

This is because the International Olympic Committee (IOC) maintains a recommendation not to participate in world federations and organizing committees of major competitions. The fact that Anna Sherbakova (19), the gold medalist at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, who has no points this season, is still ranked 9th in the women’s figure skating world ranking, shows how high the level of Russia is.

Russia wants to return to the international sporting stage with the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Women’s figure skating can also return to ISU-sponsored competitions as early as the 2023-24 season.
