S. Korean luge team qualifies for every discipline; Bobsleigh team sweeps


South Korea is poised to have its most successful
Winter Olympics to date. That’s because they’re expected to send their
largest delegation this time around. Steven Choi joins us with the details. Hello
Hey guys,… speed skating has long been a strength for South Korea,… as has figure
skating in recent years because of Kim Yu-na . But, now the list of winter sports that
they excel in is growing. The luge,… in which the athlete lays face-up
and feet-first on a sled,… is one of them. The International Luge Federation said that
South Korea has qualified for all four luge disciplines at the Sochi Games:… men’s singles,
women’s singles, men’s doubles,… and the team relay events. And, the bobsleigh team is making tracks as
well. At the North America Cup at Lake Placid,…
the team of Won Yoon-jong and Seo Young-woo won the gold medal,… while fellow nationals
Kim Dong-hyun and Jun Jung-lin nabbed the silver. With the result,… South Korea is likely
to send two teams to compete in the two-man sport at Sochi.
