Park Tae-hwan’s second medal excites sports fans

Korea’s swimming superstar Park Tae-hwan earned one more priceless silver medal for Korea.

On July 30 (Korean Time), the swimming sensation picked up silver in the 200-meter freestyle, recording 1 minute and 44.93 seconds, sharing second place with his rival Sun Yang of China behind the gold winner Yannick Agnel of France who recorded 1 minute 43.13 seconds.

His smile returned when winning two medals in a row. He appeared to have overcome the shocks of two days earlier, in which he had been disqualified from moving on to the next round due to a false start, but the London Olympic Committee corrected their decision after four hours.

However, he showed how well he managed his pressure, winning his second medal at this 200-meter game.

Once again, he will rise up to the challenge for a third medal at the 1,500-meter freestyle on August 3.
