Have by seen rhythmic gymnastics by any chance? I was surprised by this beautiful Korean girl performing while I was surfing through the TV channels. Eastern European countries are traditionally good at rhythmic gymnastics. So it was very unusual and exotic to see an Asian athlete perform so majestically.
Son Yeon-jae is one of the eight most beauties of Olympics, and was given the title of goddess by Chinese media.
Although Son came in 5th and failed to get a medal, the efforts she put in make her shine even more than the gold medal.
With her innate talents, and hard efforts, Son mastered many difficult moves that would normally take 2 to 3 years to master in 7 to 8 months. Son is a rising star in the rhythmic gymnast world.
I would be thrilled to see Son Yeon-jae again in the Brazilian Olympics in 2016.
