Yeon Kyung, Lee is the Korean gold medalist in the women’s 100 meter event from the Guangzhou Asian Games in 2010. Although she won the medal with her own efforts, we must pay respects also to her coach who provided tremendous support.
Today, I would like to introduce the meeting between the KAAF president, Dong Jin OH and her coach whose name is Sergei.
The KAAF President, OH presented a gold medal to Mrs. Lee for her achievement of breaking her Korean record in the women’s 100 meter hurdle event for the last four years. President OH asked Lee to break her record again within 1 year as a joke but she actually set the Korean record less than 1 month ago.
On the day of the ceremony, Mr. Oh met her coach, Sergei and complemented him, asking for him to help other athletes too. Sergei answered his request by saying, “That’s the reason why I am here.”
Mrs. Lee met her professional hurdle coach, Sergei last May and her technique has improved since then. In fact, training with him helps helped win the gold medal in Guangzhou Asian Games. We hope she will make good mark on the Championships 2011 with the support of her coach.
