Do-yeon, the teenage star having a great Olympics so far
Mark, that’s right… South Korean teenage swimming star, Hwang Sun-woo, for the first time in the country’s history, made it to the final of the men’s 100m freestyle.
He got there by swimming 47-point-five-six seconds in the semi-final to be the fourth fastest in the round AND set a new Asian record.
He was just zero-point-zero-four seconds behind third… so fans are hopeful that he can get a good result in the final on Thursday morning.
After this… he still has two more events left… the 50m freestyle and 4-by-200m relay final.
If he manages to get on the podium… he’ll only be the second Korean to win a medal in swimming after Park Tae-hwan.
