Gateway to Games of the XXlV Olympiad
The above image was captured in June 1994. It is a World Peace Gate to the 1988 Summer Olympics, in Olympic Park (올림픽공원), Seoul, South Korea. This is where U.S. sprinter Florence Griffith Joyner of Los Angeles California set an Olympic record (10.62) in the 100-meter dash and a still-standing world record (21.34) in the 200-meter dash to capture gold medals in both events. To these medals, she added a gold in the 4×100 relay and a silver in the 4×400. Go Flo Jo!
