[The Chosun Ilbo, August 13 2008] Int’l Press Hail Korean Performance in Beijing

The international press is praising Korean athletes who are performing superbly by winning gold medals almost every day.

China News, a quasi-official Chinese news agency, on Tuesday selected three top athletes or athletic teams of the Beijing Olympics -- American swimmer Michael Phelps, who has been breaking world records every time, the South Korean women's archery team, who won the team title for the sixth time in a row, and the American basketball dream team of NBA superstars. "After the semifinals, the South Korean women's archery team shot all arrows into the central gold target area. We must bow our heads to their divine skills,” it wrote.
