Shim Seok-hee accused of illegal recording… Cho Jae-beom reveals match-fixing on two occasions

Sim Seok-hee, 24, the women’s national short track speed skater, who was accused of demeaning and deliberately disqualifying a teammate at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, was embroiled in allegations of illegal recording in the locker room during the Olympics.

On the 14th, CBS Radio’s ‘Kim Hyun-jung’s News Show’ additionally revealed the contents of a messenger conversation between Shim Seok-hee and a national coach. According to Kim Hyun-jung’s news show, Shim Seok-hee and coach exchanged opinions through messenger on February 20, 2018 around 7 pm. Shim Suk-hee, Choi Min-jeong (23), and Kim A-rang (26) were just after finishing the women’s short track women’s individual 1000m qualifier. In the message, Shim Suk-hee said, “I’m in the locker room to hear what Choi Min-jung has to say to the director,” and “I should record it.”

The conversation between the two led to the contents of the women’s 3000m relay finals. When Shim Suk-hee said, “I’ll leave the cell phone recorder on and leave it in the locker room, so be careful and text me.” When Shim Seok-hee said, “Should I just go out and turn on the recorder,” the coach replied “yes”, saying that he would speak if he left when there were other players. It is not known whether Shim Seok-hee actually recorded the recording, but it is clear that it was not common sense.

During the recent Pyeongchang Games, Shim Seok-hee was criticized for beating her teammates and exchanging messages suggesting an intentional clash with Choi Min-jung, who was a rival in the women’s 1000m final. Shim Seok-hee apologized to her colleagues and stated that “there was no intentional collision,” but his position was further narrowed as suspicions of illegal recording in the locker room broke out. Shim Suk-hee’s side has not yet responded to the recording of the locker room. In addition to the Pyeongchang Olympics, there were also suspicions that match-fixing was done to win gold medals at the 2017 Sapporo Winter Asian Games. According to Chosun.com on the same day, former national team coach Cho Jae-beom, who was arrested on charges of sexually assaulting Shim Suk-hee, revealed two match-fixing attempts through a letter in prison in September 2018. In the 2016-2017 World Cup 1500m, former coach Cho requested concession to Choi Min-jeong for Shim Suk-hee’s gold medal under the direction of Professor B of Korea University of Sports. Shim Suk-hee won the gold medal in the 1500 m without Choi Min-jung.

The following year, Shim Seok-hee won the gold medal in the 1000m at the Sapporo Winter Asian Games after former coach Cho asked Choi Min-jeong to yield the gold medal, Chosun.com reported. Former coach Cho was sentenced to 13 years in prison at the second trial on the 10th of last month.

On the other hand, Kim Ye-jin (21), who collaborated with Shim Seok-hee and Choi Min-jeong for the gold medal in the women’s relay 3000m relay at the Pyeongchang Olympics, posted on her Instagram on the same day, “I just wanted to live quietly and quietly.” Kim Ye-jin posted a photo taken with Choi Min-jung along with this article.
