Mentioned I enjoy the archery and these incredible South Koreans.....
When archery opened with ranking rounds at the 2012 Olympic Games on Friday morning, South Korea took ownership of London's Lord's Cricket Ground.
Im Dong-Hyun broke his own world record with 699 points for 72 arrows. Im, mind you, is legally blind and was ranked second in the world behind U.S. archer Brady Ellison going into the Games.
Im has suffered from myopia all his life. He can see the colors on the target 70 meters away, but not much else. Corrective lenses make him uncomfortable, so he refuses to wear them while shooting. Going off of muscle memory has proven plenty effective for the two-time team gold medalist. But Im is not the only supreme talent shooting for South Korea.
The nation also set a world record for team shooting with 2087 points. It would be very easy for people to overlook the other two members. To aid South Korea en route to the record-setting finish, Kim Bub-Min had a score of 698, just a single point shy of Im's topper. As Im's previous world record was 696, Kim would have made history if not for his teammate.
