Silver medal for two years in a row... The twins Kim Yu-jae and Kim Yu-sung , who are aiming for the first gold medal in 18 years since Yuna Kim, also challenge for a medal... Will we break the 4th place jinx?

Figure skating women's singles star Shin Ji-ah (Yeongdong Middle School) is attempting to win the Junior World Championships for the third consecutive year.

Jia Shin will compete in the women's single short program at the 2024 International Skating Union (ISU) Figure Skating Junior World Championships held at the Taipei Arena in Taiwan on the 28th.

Shin Ji-ah, the present and future of Korean figure skating, won silver medals at both the 2022 and 2023 Junior World Championships.

In 2022, she ranked second with 206.01 points, losing 0.54 points to Issa Bo Levito (206.55 points, USA).

It was disappointing last year too.

Shin Jia, who received 201.90 points, was unable to surpass her rival Mao Shimada (224.54 points, Japan) and took the silver medal.

Shin Jia is expected to compete with Shimada for a medal in this competition as well.

He has not been able to overcome the barrier of Shimada, a player of the same age born in 2008.

Shin Ji-ah ranked second after Shimada at the 2023 Junior World Championships, the 2022-2023 Junior Grand Prix Final, and the 2023-2024 Junior Grand Prix Final.

This was the case at the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics (Gangwon 2024) held last month.

She received a total score of 191.83, losing first place to Shimada (196.99 points) and had to be satisfied with her silver medal.

Shimada uses extremely difficult jumps such as quadruple jumps, but the success rate is not very high.

If Shin Ji-ah, who focuses on her stable acting and expressiveness, perfects her acting, she may win the Junior World Championship supremacy for the first time.

The last time a Korean athlete won a gold medal at the Junior World Championships was Yuna Kim in 2006.

Shin Ji-ah aims for gold at this event for the first time in 18 years.

‘Twin athletes’ Kim Yu-jae and Kim Yu-seong (Pyeongchon Middle School) are also determined to break the ‘4th place jinx’ and win a medal.

The two players unfortunately failed to reach the podium in major major competitions.

Kim Yu-jae ranked 4th at last year's Junior World Championships, and Kim Yu-sung ranked 4th at Gangwon 2024 held last month.

Seo Min-gyu (Kyungshin Middle School) and Lee Jae-geun (Suri High School) will compete in the men's singles short program to be held on the 29th.

In ice dance, the team of Ji-ni Kim and Namu Lee (Gyeonggi Provincial Skating Federation) will compete in rhythm dance on the 1st of next month.
