Star Swimmer Says Army Boot Camp Helped Him Grow

Swimming star Park Tae-hwan has completed for his four-week military training at a boot camp in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province.

"I feel like I've matured a lot during my four weeks of training. I was able to finish the training program safely thanks to my fellow soldiers, who treated me like a friend rather than a well-known swimmer," he said at a press conference on Wednesday.
