`Let today last forever.` Two Korean sports stars stood at the top of the world together, sending good news to the citizens after a long time.

`Golf Queen` Park Se-Ri (Samsung Electronics) claimed her first victory of the season in the U.S. LPGA Tour’s 2002 The Office Depot-Amy Alcott at Tarzana’s El Caballero CC, California, overrunning her greatest rival Annika Sorenstam (Sweden) by 1 stroke. On the same day, `Short-Track King` Kim Dong-Sung (Dongduchon City Office) swept through 6 titles in the International Championship, which took place in Montreal, Canada. Although she missed birdie-putting on the 18th hole green in the 3rd round, Park (left) is smiling after confirming on the title, and Kim is also celebrating after cutting the finish line first in the 5000 meter-relay.
