‘Chinese naturalized’ Lin Xiaojun enters Korea after 2 years… “I will tell you how I feel after the competition.”

Correspondent Moon Dae-hyeon = Short-track athlete Lin Xiaojun (27, Korean name Lim Hyo-jun), who was naturalized as a Chinese, stepped on Korean soil in two years.

Xiaojun Lin, who will compete in the 2023 International Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Championships held in Korea, arrived at Incheon International Airport on the 4th with the Chinese short track team.

Surrounded by dozens of fans at his arrival hall, Lin Xiaojun exited the airport with a rather nervous expression.

In response to a reporter’s question about his impressions of entering the country, he replied, “I think this competition is the same as other competitions. I will prepare well as I prepare for other competitions.”

Lin Xiaojun, who won a gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics wearing the Taegeuk mark, was accused of pulling down his teammate Hwang Dae-heon (24, Gangwon Provincial Office)’s pants during the 2019 national team training, exposing some parts of his body.

In the end, he was acquitted, but the Korea Ice Skating Federation imposed a one-year suspension. In response, Lin Xiaojun was naturalized in China the following year.

Lin Xiaojun has not been able to participate in international competitions for a while due to the Olympic Charter of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which states that ‘in order to participate in the Olympics when naturalized, three years must pass after the international competition in which the country participated.’ 먹튀검증

From the 2022-23 season, Lin Xiaojun split the ice with a five-star red flag. In particular, he is in excellent condition, winning gold medals in the men’s 500m and men’s 5000m relay at the 5th ISU Short Track World Cup, and the men’s 500m at the 6th competition.

Xiaojun Lin visited Korea for the first time in two years since 2021 to compete in the World Championships to be held at the Mokdong Ice Rink in Seoul on the 10th and 12th.

It is the first time in four years since 2019 that Lin Xiaojun competed domestically before being punished by the Korea Ice Skating Federation.

He is expected to compete fiercely with the Korean national team players in this tournament.

Meanwhile, the confrontation between Lin Xiaojin and Hwang Daeheon does not take place. Hwang Dae-heon gave up the national team selection this season due to a back injury after the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
