Austrian judoka Ludwig Paischer (center), who lost the gold medal to Choi Min-ho of Korea at the Beijing Summer Olympics but showed his good sportsmanship by cheering Choi, poses for a photo with children at Nakmin Elementary School in Busan Thursday. The school is the alma mater of Lee Soo-hyun, who died trying to save a drunk man who fell onto the tracks in the Tokyo subway in 2001. Paischer was invited by a charity foundation set up to honor Lee, and said, he is grateful to Koreans and feels sorry over Lee`s death.
