Song Min-ji (Samyang Corporation), who won the women’s individual road race at the Asian Road Cycling Championships eight years after the retired ‘Cycling Empress’ Na-reum, enjoyed a double victory by winning the right to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics.

According to the Korea Cycling Federation, Song Min-ji won a gold medal in the women’s individual road race held in Almaty, Kazakhstan on the 11th (local time).

He covered the 112.6 km section in 2 hours, 56 minutes and 51 seconds, crossing the finish line first among 84 athletes.

It has been eight years since Na-reum in 2016 that a Korean athlete won the women’s individual road race at the Asian Championships.

Song Min-ji, who was disappointed by finishing in 13th place in the road solo race held on the 9th, won the championship after strategically running the entire race on a private road called the ‘Cycling Marathon‘.

Song Min-ji was finally confirmed as a participant in the road cycling category at the Paris Olympics with her win that day.

Unlike the men’s division, which was confirmed early on by Kim Yu-ro (Korea Land and Infrastructure), five players, including Song Min-ji, competed for the women’s Olympic spot, which became vacant after Na-reum’s retirement at the end of last year.

Accordingly, the federation decided to decide on the players to participate in the women’s division in Paris based on the results of the individual road race in this competition, and Song Min-ji won the championship that day, confidently securing a ticket to Paris. 온라인 슬롯
