South Korea bagged 10 gold medals at the Incheon Asian Games Tuesday. It was the country’s biggest one-day haul at this year’s Games.

Four of the golds were won in sailing at the Wangsan Sailing Marina, one of which went home with 14-year-old Park Sung-bin. Park became the youngest South Korean gold medalist, finishing first in the men’s one-person Optimist dinghy race for athletes under 15, with 16 penalty points after 12 races in seven days. Kwok Raynn of Singapore took silver after filing a protest against Thailand’s Suthon Yampinid and Malaysia’s Dhiauddin Rozaini for infringements during a previous race. The Thai sailor settled for bronze.

“Today’s wind speed was about 5m/s, just the way I like it,” Park said. “I had a feeling I would win today.”

Another South Korean, Ha Jee-min, topped the podium in the men’s one-person Laser dinghy race, while Kim Keun-soo and Song Min-jae scored gold in the Hobie-16 open multihull category. The team of Kim Chang-ju and Kim Ji-hoon finished first in the men’s two-person dinghy event. Their female counterparts settled for bronze.

Triple golds in bowling

South Korean bowlers added three golds to the collection in the men’s all-events and the five-man team event. Park Jong-woo secured South Korea’s first all-events title in 36 years, aggregating 5,047 points in the singles, doubles, trios and five-man team events at the Anyang Hogye Gymnasium. Thailand’s Apharat Yannaphon Larp took silver with 5,015 points and Kang Hee-won of South Korea snagged bronze with 4,999 points.

The South Korea team of Choi Bo-keum, Park, Kim Kyung-min, Kang Hee-won, Hong Hae-sol and Shin Seung-hyeon also topped the podium in the five-man team event. Lee Na-young won gold in the women’s all-events, becoming the country’s first triple gold medalist with a combined score of 5,132 points in the singles, doubles, trios and five-man team events.

More golds in wrestling, tennis

Wrestler Jung Ji-hyun claimed his first Asiad gold in the men’s 71kg Greco-Roman event, with a 9-0 win over Uzbek opponent Dilshodjon Turdiev. The 2004 Olympic champion won only a silver medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asiad, and his gold marked the country’s first wrestling title in eight years.

South Korea pocketed a gold and bronze each in the men’s and women’s soft tennis competitions.

Kim Hyeong-jun beat Edi Kusdaryanto of Indonesia 4-0 in just 15 minutes for the men’s soft tennis singles gold, and soon afterwards, Kim Bo-mi won the women’s singles gold defeating Chen Hui of China 4-1.

Kim Dong-hoon and Kim Ae-kyung settled for bronzes in their respective matches.

Meanwhile, South Korea’s Park Chul-sung added a silver medal to the country’s collection on Wednesday in the men’s 50km race walk.

Kim Byoung-jun and Kim Deok-hyeon also pocketed silver medals in the men’s 100m hurdles and long jump, while Lim Eun-ji scored a bronze in the women’s pole vault.
