Olympics Champions Tied the Knot

Olympics Champions Tied the Knot
Lausanne – 2 February 2009

Korean archers PARK Sung-Hyun, 25-year old, and PARK Kyung-Mo, 33, united Olympic destiny. They were blessed in the presence of many guests on 6 December 2008.

PARK Sung-Hyun won two gold medals (individual and team) at the 2004 Athens Games. She repeated as an Olympic champion in the women's team final in Beijing last year, leading her country to a sixth straight Olympic title. She also won individual silver in Beijing.

PARK Kyung-Mo, who also won team gold in 2004, had similar success as her fiancée four years later. In Beijing, he helped the men's team clinch the Olympic title for the third straight time and won the individual silver medal.

The newly-weds started dating two years ago while preparing for the Olympics but kept their relationship secret to avoid affecting the national team. The two are the first gold medallists in the country's history to marry each other.

We wish PARK Sung-Hyun and PARK Kyung-Mo a wonderful and happy life together!
