Koihime Musou Girls and Famous Koreans, LARGE Edition! (Part III): Chen Deng and Jin Sun-yu

Jin Sun-yu (Hangul/Hanja/Romanization: 진선유/陳善有/Jin Seon-yu; Born: December 17th 1988 in Daegu, South Korea) is a South Korean short-track speed skater. She is a triple Olympic Champion from 2006 and a three-time Overall World Champion (for 2005–2007). She is a member of Yeoyang Jin Clan (여양 진씨/驪陽陳氏), a clan which is originated from the Commune of Janggok-myeon, Hongseong County, Southern Chungcheong Province.

She was the winner of the gold medal in the 1500 meters and the silver medal in the 1000 meters at the 2005 World Championships in Beijing, as she ended up as the overall champion. At the 2006 World Championships in Minneapolis-Minnesota, Jin won the 1000, 1500, and 3000 meters on her way to a second consecutive overall championship. She also finished first in the overall World Cup standings for the 2005-2006 season, in addition with 2007 World Championships in Milan.

At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, she won three gold medals, winning women's individual 1000 meters, and 1500 meters events, and as a member of the South Korean women's victorious 3000 meter relay team. In doing so, Jin became the first athlete (by less than half an hour) from Korea to win three gold medals in one Olympics. Ex-Korean-turned Russian speed skater, Viktor Ahn Hyun-soo matched Jin's achievement later by helping Korea to win men's 5000 meters relay.
