marathon in Helsinki

The other week the World Championships in track and field were held in Helsinki. As a true Korea blog, Hunjangûi karûch'im steps down from the high pedestal for a moment to take a look how the North and the South fared. Most of the interest in the South has concerned the marathon, but unfortunately the performance of its athletes didn't match the interest.

Below are the marathon results for North (PRK) and South (KOR) Korean women and men.
14 Jong Yong-Ok PRK 2:29:43 (SB)
23 Oh Song-Suk PRK 2:34:07
24 Ryang Gum-Hwa PRK 2:34:35
44 Oh Jung-Hee KOR 2:47:42
32 Ri Kyong-Chol PRK 2:20:35
54 Je In-Mo KOR 2:26:39
60 Cho Keun-Hyung KOR 2:31:59
So at least the other of the two South Korean men who finished run faster than the best North Korean woman.
