are very strong， especially in 1，000m， 1，500m and relay."

advantage compared to her opponents， " said Li.

easy，" Li said. "Our aim is to find our problems and know ourselves

Korea also took two golds as they won the women's 1，000m and 3，000m relay.

first gold in the event at Worlds， and Wu Dajing won the men's 500m at the 2016
