Gymnasts to Vie for Medals at Korea Cup

Rhythmic gymnast Son Yeon-jae and Olympic gold medalist Yang Hak-seon will compete at the 2014 Korea Cup this weekend in Incheon, where some 53 athletes from 19 countries will compete for spots on the podium.

Rhythmic gymnastics was not included in the inaugural event in 2001 in Goyang, Gyeonggi Provice but has been added for the follow-up event this year.

The event will serve as a dress rehearsal for the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon in September. As Son and Yang both will both be vying for gold at the regional games amid heavy competition, they will be able to get a feel for the venue this weekend.
