Shin Eui-hyun, who won Korea's first Winter Paralympic gold medal in Pyeongchang four years ago, is challenging for a medal for the second time in a row in Beijing.

I did not win a medal in the main event today (the 6th), but I was impressed with the galloping spirit.

Shin Eui-hyeon, who competed for two days in a row following the biathlon yesterday, ran with all his might on the 1,600m high altitude course, which is more than twice that of Pyeongchang.

He made it through the first 3km in 5th place, but then slowed down and fell into mid-range.

But even though he was out of breath, he made a last-minute spurt, finishing 8th out of 25.

I think I'm out of breath because the rent is high here.] Although it was a

pity that I couldn't win a medal in the main event, I expressed my gratitude with a trembling voice for the interest and support of the people.

So many people's attention...

I didn't know I would get it.]

The sprint of the iron man is not over yet.

In the remaining four events, Eui-Hyeon Shin will fight again with her unique 'positive energy'.

I took a breather today, so the next game will be better.]

Jeong Jae-seok, who played with Shin Eui-hyun, placed 22nd, and Chinese players who had the advantage of the home course took first and second places.
