Lee Sang-ho is the third Korean athlete to win a gold medal at the FIS World Cup, following Lee Sang-ho in December 2021 and Choi Ga-on (Sehwa Girls’ Middle School) in the women’s halfpipe at the Snowboard World Cup in December last year.
Lee Sang-ho, from Sabuk, Gangwon-do, was given the nickname ‘Cabbage Boy’ because he first went snowboarding at a local sledding slope built in a cabbage field in the highlands when he was in elementary school.
He won a silver medal in the parallel giant slalom at the FIS Snowboard World Cup held in Turkye in March 2017, becoming the first Korean athlete to become a FIS World Cup medalist, and at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, he won the first Olympic medal for Korean skiing.
In addition, he became the first Korean player to win a FIS World Cup gold medal at the Russian competition in December 2021, and with this win, he also set a record of becoming the first Korean player to win two gold medals at the FIS World Cup.
The next event for the Snowboard Alpine World Cup is the parallel giant slalom competition held in Slovenia on the 25th.
In Snowboard Alpine, the rankings are determined by adding up the records of running two courses alternately in the preliminary round, and the top 16 people advance to the finals to determine the winner in a tournament format.
It is called parallel because two snowboarders race down the course side by side and compete for speed. 카지노사이트
