Sun Ye’s best friend, Park Tae Hwan grabbed the first Olympic swimming gold for his country by finishing first in the men’s 400-meter freestyle competition of the Beijing Olympics Sunday. Park clocked 3:41.86. This also marks the first time that South Korea has ever won an Olympic medal in swimming.
He still has his pet 1,500m Freestyle event to come. So Nyeo Shi Dae “Girls Generation” was played in the background after he won his event. Although there were some complaints, but the song was also played at various times throughout the sessions, not just after his win, just for the record.
Congratulations to him!
