Koreans win gold and silver; Apolo Ohno becomes most decorated American winter Olympian

Filed under: sports — extrakorea @ 4:55 am

At the Vancouver Olympics’ men’s 1,000-meter short-track speedskating competition, Koreans Lee Jung-su* and Lee Ho-suk** (no relation, as far as I know) won the gold and silver medals, respectively. Apolo Ohno won the bronze to become America’s most decorated winter Olympian ever. He has seven medals, as opposed to the six held by Bonnie Blair, the previous record-holder. He has also won the most medals for any short track speedskater, regardless of nation.

* Yes, that Lee Jung-su, who acted like a douche-nozzle after winning a previous gold medal.

** Yes, that Lee Ho-suk, who wiped himself and a teammate out when he decided to go for a gold instead of settling for a bronze.
