Yun Sungbin Has Won South Korea's First Olympic Skeleton Gold

Gold winner Chloe Kim of the United States  and bronze winner Arielle Gold of the United States celebrate after the women's halfpipe finals at Phoenix Snow Park at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang South Korea Tuesday Feb. 13 2018. (AP

It was South Korea's first ever medal in the sliding events of bobsled, luge and skeleton. I was very anxious that the event was to be held on the Lunar New Year's Day morning because it's a big holiday and many people wouldn't be able to watch our event.

Matt Antoine of the United States reacts in the finish area during the Men's Skeleton heats at Olympic Sliding Centre on February 16, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

Olympic Athlete from Russia Nikita Tregubov took the silver, while the bronze medal went to Dom Parsons of Britain.

But the day belonged to Yun, who slides in an Iron Man-copy helmet that makes him look like a superhero as he rockets around the course.

Alpine skiing was also on the docket, with Matthias Mayer overcoming a crash in the downhill on Wednesday to capture the gold in men's Super-G, his second straight Olympic Games with a gold medal.

"I just loved the thrill of the competition for sure".

After the race, Yun walked to the home crowd and greeted them with a deep bow on his hands and knees.

"I was a little anxious about racing on the morning of the lunar new year", added the former world silver medallist.

"I thought I'd lost it after that fourth run". But so many people came to watch and I know many more watched on TV.

"I would like to thank all my team for helping me, encouraging me".

Yun finished 16th in his Olympic debut at the 2014 Sochi Games, just two years after he took up the sport.

"I was very lucky to be able to move up".

"But Martins Dukurs has made some more mistakes and he's the last person I'd expect that from - he's been dominant for so many years".
