Voting held during the Paris Olympics 4 people elected

Golf Empress’ Inbee Park (35) was named on the list of candidates for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) athlete committee.

On the 30th (Korean time), the IOC released a list of 32 candidates running for IOC Athletes’ Commission on its official website.

The new IOC Athletes’ Commission will be elected by a vote of participating athletes during the 2024 Paris Olympics. Of the 32 candidates, 4 will be selected as the new IOC Athletes’ Commission.

Inbee Park, who has made significant achievements as a golf player, is running for the IOC Athletes’ Commission. Inbee Park, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic gold medalist, has a total of 21 wins on the LPGA Tour and is a leading star of Korean women’s golf, having achieved the ‘Golden Slam’, which is a combination of wins in four major tournaments and an Olympic gold medal.

Last August, Inbee Park was confirmed as a candidate for the IOC Athletes’ Commission, beating Kim Yeon-kyung (volleyball), Jin Jong-oh (shooting), Lee Dae-hoon (taekwondo), and Kim So-young (badminton).

There have been two Korean IOC athletes in the past. Dae-sung Moon (Taekwondo) made the first case of election at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and Seung-min Yoo, president of the Korea Table Tennis Association, who is currently an IOC athlete member, was elected at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

There can be only one IOC athlete member per country. As Chairman Yoo’s term expires after the Paris Olympics next year, Inbee Park will be able to take on the challenge.

Russian pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva and 2008 Beijing Olympic fencing gold medalist Britta Heidemann (Germany) are also nearing the end of their terms.

In addition, Allison Felix (USA, track and field), who won 7 gold medals at the Olympics, Aaron Silaj (fencing, Hungary), Mariana Pajon (cycling, Colombia), Valent Sinkovic (rowing, Croatia), and Kahena Kunz ( Yachting, Brazil), Sheikh Salah Cisse (Taekwondo, Ivory Coast), and Jessica Fox (Canoeing, Australia) are competing for the IOC Athletes’ Committee. 토토사이트
