South Korean speed skating competitor Jung Chul Won lost his opportunity to win a gold medal because he started celebrating at the finish line too early. This information follows from a CNN publication.
According to reports, the speed skater, approaching the finish line at the Asian Games, raised his arms in the air in jubilation, thereby losing 0.01 seconds to his opponent from Taiwan, who then extended his leg forward.
Currently, Jung Chul Won is able to join the army: in South Korea, winners of the Asian Games and Olympiads are exempt from this duty.
Earlier it was reported that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) refused to allow Russian athletes to participate in the Youth Olympic Games. The competition will be held from January 19 to February 2 in the city of Gangwon-do in South Korea. More about this read the material Public News Service.
