It is an epidemic that is happening all over the world!
One of South Korea's most decorated inline skaters, Woo Hyo-sook, moved to speed skating on ice for the National Winter Sports Festival that was held on February 18-21. South Korea's 94th National Winter Sports Festival was held in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province. Almost 2500 athletes came from various parts of the country to compete in the four-day event.
Woo Hyo-sook has won multiple world championships in inline speed skating. And in the years since the Olympic ice appearances of Joey Cheek, Jennifer Rodriguez, Chad Hedrick and many other former inline racers, it is not unusual for an inline speed skater who has Olympic aspirations to consider switching from wheels to blades.
