Jinho Park9 June 1977 South Korea
- LATEST TRIUMPHS:
- 2015 IPC Shooting World Cup – Gold: R1 (10m air rifle standing SH1) and R3 (10m air rifle prone SH1)
- 2014 IPC Shooting World Championships – Gold: R3 (10m sir rifle prone SH1); Bronze – R7 (men's 50m Rifle 3 positions SH1)
However, despite only competing at one World Cup in Sydney, Australia, Park still ranked as equal second in the world in R3 (mixed 10 air rifle prone SH1) alongside the likes of Great Britain’s Matt Skelhon.
Unsurprisingly on his single outing of 2015, Park won two golds in R3 and R1 (men’s 10m air rifle standing SH1).
2014 was his best year on record, winning 10 medals across his first World Championships, and at the Asian Para Games in Incheon, South Korea.
Park smashed two world records and won five medals in individual and team events at the Worlds. He also claimed five medals, including three golds, at Incheon 2014.
Vadovicova claimed two golds whilst Park agonised at just missing out on the podium in R6 (mixed 50 rifle prone) with fourth. He did however set a Paralympic record in R1 (men's 10m air rifle standing SH1) as small consolation.
He will be back in 2017 to start the Paralympic cycle once again, being careful to ensure he does not make the same mistakes again.
