The Korean ice skating rink is again fighting over the hiring of a leader for a local government team.
Some leaders issued statements of opposition, saying that certain people such as Ahn Hyun-soo were not allowed, and even the team players publicly protested against this, and eventually, the recruitment itself was completely put on hold.
Reporter Kim Ki-beom covered the story.
Earlier this month, Viktor Ahn and Ahn Hyun-soo applied for open recruitment of ice coaches at Seongnam City Hall.
[Ahn Hyun-soo: “I don’t think I have anything else to say, and I’ll give you an answer when this process is completed and an opportunity arises.”]
When this fact was known, a group of ice leaders issued a statement.
He mentioned the real names of Ahn Hyun-soo and coach Kim Seon-tae, who served as coach of the Chinese national team, and expressed their position that the hiring was inappropriate.
As public opinion became noisy, Seongnam City Hall eliminated Ahn Hyun-soo and Kim Seon-tae, and was scheduled to announce the successful candidates this morning.
By the way, Choi Min-jung, the national representative of Seongnam City Hall, posted a statement through SNS this morning.
She was cautious about what kind of leader a player would want, but insisted that the selection of a leader should be fair, free from outside influence.안전놀이터
After the controversy was heated, Seongnam City Hall announced today that there is no successful applicant.
In order to prevent the hiring of a specific person, the same ice dealers issued a statement of opposition, and the team player virtually refused to appoint another leading candidate and faced a tight confrontation.
The internal power struggle in the ice skating world is not yesterday or today.
The Skating Federation gave up on appointing a national coach two years ago after a qualification dispute ahead of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
Although their skills are world-class, the bitter reality of the Korean ice world, which is at odds with internal discord, continues to repeat itself.
