Yang Hak-seon Wins Korea's First Ever Gold in Gymnastics
We start this morning with the latest from day ten of the London Oympics.
Korea's Yang Hak Seon brought home Korea's first ever gold medal in gymnastics on Monday, pulling off the highest-level techniques and a perfect landing in men's vault.
Yang finished with an average of 16.5-3-3, winning with what the foreign media called the most difficult vault any gymnast has ever successfully landed.
Denis Ablyazin of Russia won the silver.
In the meantime, Kim Jong-hyun won the silver medal in men's 50-meter rifle 3 positions event, adding another medal from shooting for the nation.
Korea closed the shooting events after sweeping three golds and two silver medals in total.
In table tennis, Korea's star players Oh Sang-eun and Yoo Seung-min beat Hong Kong to advance to the finals and securing at least a silver medal.
The duo will face off against China on Tuesday, UK time.
Korea still ranks an impressive fourth in medal standings, with eleven gold, five silver and six bronze medals.
