Korea’s first gold in the Beijing Olympics


I was watching the coverage of the Beijing Olympics on both KBS 2 and MBC while preparing our dinner of kimchi chigae (kimchi stew) this evening when South Korea got its first gold. Choi Min Ho defeated the Austrian Ludwig Paisher, who is ranked world’s No. 1 in the 60 kg Men’s Judo. I heard cheers from the other residents at our apartment complex. Congratulations Mr. Choi! (I wonder how many medals and trophies Mr. Choi has collected in his whole sporting career!)
