Gu Ailing competes with Su Yiming for the first gold

  On the 15th, the freestyle skiing women's slope obstacle course final and the snowboard men's big platform final will usher in the second gold battle between Gu Ailing and Su Yiming respectively at this Winter Olympics.

In the qualifying rounds, the two teenagers advanced to third and fifth respectively.

  Gu Ailing is already a gold medalist in women's freestyle skiing platform diving, and platform diving is only the weakest among the three events.

At last year's World Championships, Gu Ailing won the women's slope obstacle skills championship. In this season's World Cup competition, she has swept almost all the gold medals in this event.

If she plays normally in the final, Gu Ailing should be able to win the second gold as she wishes.

  After winning the runner-up in snowboarding slope obstacle skills, Su Yiming, who was under 18 years old, became a blockbuster, but he did not know that the big snowboard platform was the real strength of this teenager.

In the World Cup competition last December, Su Yiming won the project's first World Championship gold medal for the Chinese team.

Before that, he also successfully completed the internal rotation 1980 (five and a half weeks of rotation), becoming the first person in the world to unlock this difficult movement.

  In the final on the 15th, whether Su Yiming can win his first Winter Olympic gold medal is a big suspense, and whether he will show 1980 is also a big spectacle.

  There will also be a gold medal for the women's platform jumping on the snowboard arena on the same day.

As the first person in China to advance to the Winter Olympics final in this event, the 19-year-old Jung, who was ninth in the qualifying round, will strive to achieve another success.

  In the World Cup finals last October, Jung advanced to the final and finally won the eighth place, becoming the first Chinese player to reach the World Cup final in this event.

  He Jinbo, the youngest player of the Chinese delegation in this Winter Olympics, will make another appearance in the freestyle skiing men's slope obstacle course on the 15th.

  The women's single skating short program will be held on the 15th in the figure skating arena.

The competition for medals in women's figure skating is basically a civil war of Russian dolls. Among them, 15-year-old Valieva, who holds three world records in short program, free skating and total score by a great advantage, is the biggest favorite to win the championship. .

  A few days ago, Valieva was involved in a doping incident and her eligibility for the competition was in doubt.

On the 14th, the International Court of Arbitration for Sport decided to allow Valieva to participate in the Winter Olympics-related competitions.

But whether this incident will affect Valieva's performance in the single game has become a major attraction of the event.

  Also caught in the turmoil is China's only female single skating player, Zhu Yi.

Due to his poor performance in the team competition, the 19-year-old was once controversial.

This time in the individual competition, I hope Zhu Yi can adjust his mentality and play his best level.
