Dae-heon Hwang Wins Gold at 2023-24 ISU World Cup Despite Harassment from Chinese Fans

[몬트리올=AP/뉴시스] Dae-heon Hwang is happy after finishing first in the men’s short track 1500m final at the 2023-24 International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup held in Montreal, Canada on the 21st (local time). Daeheon Hwang won the gold medal with a time of 2 minutes 23.666 seconds. 2023.10.22.

Hwang Dae-heon (Gangwon Provincial Office) of the short track team was ridiculed by Chinese fans who came to his lodgings during the 3rd competition of the 2023-2024 International Skating Union (ISU) Short Track World Cup.

The third competition of this season’s Short Track World Cup was held in Beijing, China from the 8th to the 10th.

Hwang Dae-heon, who returned to his lodgings after finishing the game on the second day of the competition, was in trouble because of the Chinese fans who came to his lodgings. Chinese fans are said to have mocked Lin Xiaojun (Korean name Lim Hyo-jun), who played for the Korean national team but became a naturalized Chinese citizen.

At the media day for the 4th competition of the 2023-2024 ISU Short Track World Cup held at the Mokdong Indoor Ice Rink in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul on the 12th, Ahn Jung-hyun, coach of the short track team, said, “After the race on the 9th, an unpleasant incident occurred. A Chinese fan was waiting for Hwang Dae-heon at the national team’s dormitory. He explained, “Hwang Dae-heon had a bad feeling while waiting for the elevator, and something unpleasant happened while waiting and going up.”

He added, “Something happened that shouldn’t have happened. I think we should accept the booing at the stadium, but I think it was a serious problem that they came to the dorms and chased the players around as if they were terrorizing them.”

Coach Ahn and the Korea Skating Federation protested to the ISU. Afterwards, Daeheon Hwang moved with security guards for the remainder of the competition.

An official from the Ice Skating Federation said, “After the security guard came along, there were no more unpleasant incidents with Chinese fans.”
