Here is a good story about a Korean Olympic Gold Medalist who’s success was able to lead to a new home for his parents:
A construction company on Tuesday promised an apartment to gymnast Yang Hak-seon, who endured grueling poverty and won Korea’s first gymnastics gold medal at the London Summer Olympics on Tuesday.
Yang told reporters in London that he would like to buy a house for his parents using the money he would receive as rewards from the government and sport organizations. [Chosun Ilbo]
