Beijing Olympics 2008 Update - Park Tae Hwan wins 400m Freestyle

Park (on the right) won the 400m freestyle event this morning. Congratulations!

HelloHallyu has been bitten by the Beijing Olympics 2008 bug. Have been following watching various sports, beach volleyball, hockey, swimming, on the cable when I caught the 400m freestyle finals this morning.

Being a fan of Korean dramas, I didn't really pay much attention to how Korean sportsmen do in the games since I naturally support my own countrymen/women - Team Singapore! But I was happy when I saw the great race by Park Taw Hwan against the games favourite - Grant Hackett.

Grant led initially, but Park took control of the race and beat Hackett, who eventually came in fourth, convincingly.
Congratulations to the Korean team on their 2nd Gold medal!
