Korean Olympic Roster Has 5 Women 0 Men Park Taehwan Begs to be Added

Last week it was announced that five Korean women had punched their tickets to the Rio Olympic Games, but not a single man had earned an Olympic berth.

While Park Tae-hwan surpassed FINA A standards, the Korean Olympic Committee announced last month that it would uphold its additional three year doping ban. The suspension has been argued to be a double punishment, since Park already served 18 months for his positive test at the 2014 Asian Games.

With the announcement of the Olympic roster, Park spoke at a news conference on Monday begging for a second chance. He got down on all fours, according to The Straits Times in a desperate plea. “As a swimmer, I feel it is most important to speak through records and results in the pool, ” said the 26 year old.

In 2008, he won Korea’s first Olympic swimming medal when he struck gold in the 400 freestyle. Park won the 100, 200, 400, and 1500 freestyles last week at the Korean Olympic Trials. Those titles included the world’s fourth fastest 400 freestyle this year.
