By becoming the Olympic foil champion at the Sydney Games, the South Korean became the first Asian winner of a major fencing competition.He discovered the sport on television as a child and immediately wanted to be a fencer.A left-hander like the majority of the best specialists, the Korean is handicapped by his small stature in a sport in which tall athletes take advantage of their reach. In order to progress, he moved to Europe. Through hard work he was finally able to achieve his aim: to become the best.Kim Young ho will now devote his efforts to training young Korean fencers in the hope of being able to defend his title in Athens.
