Lee Sang Hwa won a gold medal in the speed skating Women 500m in 2014 Sochi Olympic. She set a new Olympic record and became the queen of ice. She changed her event from short track to speed skating and it was successful. I was happy to watch Sochi Olympic thanks to her and I hope her to do well in the next Olympic. Also, we can see her many times on TV because she has a talent in entertaining. I hope her to do well in both entertainment and skating.
Kim Dong Sung won a gold medal in the short track Men 1000m and a silver medal in the short track Men 5000m relay race in 1998 Nagano Olympic. At that time, his rival Rijajun was considered to do better than him. However, he won the game by 'stretching out a skate blade' and broke many people's prediction. This video is being played many times until now. I remember him as the first hero of the short track. Starting him, many juniors became promising skating athletes and they are doing well…

Park Tae Hwan won a gold medal in the swimming free style 400m and a silver medal in the swimming free style 200m in 2008 Beijing Olympic. He was the first Korean who won medals in the swimming event. He became famous when I was in my 3rd year of middle school and until know, we can see him in many advertisements on TV. Therefore, he is one of the most familiar sports stars for me. Even though he was embroiled in doping controversy recently, he is still Korea's Olympic hero and I hope he do…
Jang Mi Ran won a gold medal in the weight lifting in 2008 Beijing Olympic. She set a new world record and became the top in the heavy weight class. I've never had been interested in weight lifting. However, I remember that I watched her Olympic game and cheered her with my family. I was so surprised that woman can lift that heavy thing and it is really incredible. I think her medal is invaluable because it can not be gained without her tremendous effort.
Nadia Comaneci will forever be remembered as the first #gymnast to achieve the perfect score of 10 in #Olympic competition on the way to winning three gold medals at the 1976 Montreal Games. Comaneci, who was just 14, went into the Olympics with admittedly "very, very low expectations" -- but in the space of a few short days became one of the most recognizable athletes on the planet. Which Olympic sport do you look forward to watching the most?
