Olympic Gold Medallists to Miss Short Track Worlds

Sang-hee Han - The Korea Times - 29 février 2008

South Korea's short track speed skating stars, Ahn Hyun-soo and Jin Sun-yu will not make the short track world championships held here due to injuries, causing the team worries. [...]

"He had a reexamination, but the doctors said that it would be difficult for him (Ahn) to compete,'' IB Sports said. " [...] "Jin injured her ankle during a rather aggressive match with the Chinese players at the World Cup Short Track this month. She returned home in a wheel chair and wasn't even able to put her skates on," Song Jae-geun, the team's coach said to Yonhap News Agency.
[...] Meanwhile, Apolo Anton Ohno, who stunned the nation with his ``Hollywood action'' at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, will return to Seoul as a member of the United States team. [...] It will be his first visit for a tournament in 29 months, following the 2005-2006 International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup Short Track.
