Korean speed skater

As short track speed skating is one of the most popular sports in Korea, it's no wonder South Korea's Lee-Kyung Chun was one of the greatest women's short track speed skaters. Her gold medal in the women's 1,000 meter event at Lillehammer, Norway in 1994 was just the beginning of a sports career highlighted by world records and Olympic records. She is the reigning overall women's world champion short track speed skater. Today, she is a member of the IOC Athletes' Commission.
