Sihyeong Lee of the Republic of Korea was a proud part of the team bringing home the silver medal at the 2023 World Team Trophy—the country’s ever first team competition.
The 2022 Nebelhorn Trophy silver medalist has steadily continued to climb the international ranks over the past six years, particularly at the Four Continents Championships. He was 16th in 2017 at this event but came in sixth this season.
The 22-year-old from Seoul takes us through his memories of this event and also reveals that he traveled to Worlds in Saitama to experience figure skating for the very first time as a spectator. He also opens up about his path into the world of figure skating and shares his key moments that made him fall in love with the sport.
Being a participant of 10 ISU championships, as well as of the 2022 Olympic Games, he shares his brightest career memories, as well as his goals for the future. He also explains the Korean system of having two “nationals” and the function of both competitions.
He is one of a handful of skaters that has already revealed his program music for the 2023-24 season and opens up in this interview about new challenges that these programs bring and on working with his role model Joshua Farris.
Listen in as we get glimpses into his fun personality as he shows a great sense of humor throughout the interview!
