Korea Sets Ambitious Target for Pyeongchang Olympics
Sports officials and the organizing committee of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang gathered on Tuesday to set targets for the quadrennial sporting event.
Korea aims to achieve its best-ever result at the Games by ranking fourth with eight gold, four silver and eight bronze medals. Its best record was a fifth place finish with six gold, six silver and two bronze medals in Vancouver in 2010.
But winning 20 medals seems an overly optimistic goal as it is more than double the eight medals -- three gold, three silver and two bronze -- Korea collected in Sochi earlier this year, where it finished 13th.
