Watch out Vancouver! Korea is on its way

Every year we sit at home and watch the Olympics on our TV’s and cheer on the American athletes. We enjoy the opening ceremonies and don’t really spend too much time focused on the other countries. Well let me tell you this year, my eyes will be focused elsewhere…

This year, Korea is sending 45 contenders to the Olympics. and it seems, if I was worldly enough to know this, but at the 2006 Olympics Korea was ranked number 7 with 11 total medals, 6 being gold. The Korean Olympic Committee has set a goal of finishing in the top-10 in gold medals with a target of six. The total Korean Delagacy of Althletes, Coaches and Officials is 82, the largest they have ever had. So, like I said, Watch out Vancouver…SOK is marching into town.
