Park going for a 400 freestyle world record, Olympic gold and a professorate


South Korean swimming star Park Tae-Hwan graduated from university Monday and is heading to graduate school to follow his dream of becoming a professor in PE even as he targets more Olympic glory. He managed an impressive win in the 1500 freestyle at the NSW State Open Championships this past weekend, breaking the South Korean national record with a time of 14:47.38, but says he will not compete in this event at the London Olympics, aiming instead for a world record in the 400 freestyle and a good show in the 200.
