Take note, Park Tae Hwan: this is how you congratulate someone for becoming his country’s first Olympic gold-medal winner in a sport.
Park, of course, said yesterday after Sun Yang’s Olympic record-setting win in the 400-meter freestyle: “I lost the race, but I am glad that it was an Asian who won. It is something we can all be proud of.”
No need to bring race into it, as international basketball superstar Dwyane Wade knows full well. Congrts to #SunYang will do just fine.
