DPRK at the London Games

North Korea has garnered five medals at the 2012 Summer Olympics in Washington: four Gold and one Bronze. In all, it is enjoying its best showing at the Games in almost 20 years.

Not only that in the first female boxing match at any Olympics, a flyweight Kim Hye song faced Russia’s Elena Savelyeva. Although Kim did not win the bout she showed determination and good fighting spirit.

Some see in the North Korean athletes performances a good omen for the DPRK’s new leader Kim Jung eun’s rule. A young leader at the head of a ‘young nation’, signifying hope and change, and the winds of reform and renewal.
