The Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) also announced on Monday
that saber fencer Kim Jung-hwan would captain the men's
delegation at the Sept. 19 to Oct. 4 Games, and handball player
Woo Sun-hee would head up the women's contingent.
The 25-year-old Kim, who goes by the nickname 'Mowgli', overcame
a badly swollen eye to beat Hungary's Tamas Lorincz in the 66kg
final in London. He also won gold at the world championships in
Budapest last year.
Kim will compete in the 75kg class in Incheon, west of Seoul.
Woo won handball gold at the 2002 and 2006 Asian Games and an
Olympic silver in Athens, while Kim was part of South Korea's
victorious saber squad that won gold at the London Games.
