KOC aims high for London 2012


09 Jan 2012
Seoul, Korea: Hundreds of Korean Olympic athletes on Monday held their first training sessions of 2012, the year of the London Olympics, at the nation’s major training ground for amateur sports, Yonhap News reports. The Korean Olympic Committee celebrated the inaugural training session of the year with a ceremony at the National Training Center in Seoul, attended by about 400 athletes and coaches from 15 sports, along with top sports officials.

The London Olympics are scheduled for July 27 to August 12. In his address to the athletes, Park Yong Sung, President of the KOC, reiterated the stated goal of finishing in the top 10 medal standings in London, with at least 10 gold medals, and implored athletes “to once again place South Korean sport at the centre of the world.”

Korea has ranked in the top 10 in medals in six of the past seven Olympics. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Korea set its own Olympics record by winning 13 gold medals and ranking seventh. Choe Kwang Sik, the minister of culture, sport and tourism, said athletes would be rewarded for their work ethic.

“Sport is honest, and your dedication and hard work in training will bear fruit,” he said. “Make sure your blood and tears will lead to great results at the London Olympics.” Park said the immediate goal was to send 250 athletes to London. “To this day, 106 athletes have qualified for the Games,” he said. “It’s imperative we qualify in as many events as we can.”
