olympics day 2: marine boy wins gold!

marine boy does it!

his oma loses it!

18-year-old park tae-hwan becomes korea's first swimming medalist, winning the gold in the 400-meter freestyle with a time of 3:41.86.

it must feel nice after being disqualified for a false start in athens (he was only 14) and all the pressure that's been on him of late. good work, marine boy! collect dem endorsement won now. (btw: i think this is the fourth time kbs has replayed the race in the past 25 mins.)

update 12:03: medals ceremony

i guarantee the locals are eating up this hierarchy.

i get the feeling he may be on anti-depressants, but anyway, nice work!
