What made Yun so successful against other competitors this season was his superb starts. "Yun showed to us that we can be the best in the world if we try and dare to challenge a new field", Moon wrote. Yun reportedly can squat 240 kilograms.

Yun started the day as the top-ranked slider with a time of 1:40.35, setting track and start records at Olympic Sliding Centre. His tough practices resulted in an easy wire-to-wire victory. But so many people came to watch and I know many more watched on TV.

Prior to the PyeongChang Games, only nine countries had won medals in skeleton, but Yun re-wrote history on Friday.

Parsons, who finished just two hundredths off silver, was nevertheless ecstatic after claiming Britain's first medal of the Games.

He was the most consistent performer throughout the competition as he headed into his fourth and final run with an incredible lead of more than a second. Coincidently, his gold came on Lunar New Year's Day, and this could be Day One of his era.
