The Park family and the Doosan Group have contributed much to the development of the Korean sports world. The Doosan Group owns and operates baseball, handball, and archery teams in Korea and has given rise to several Olympic medalists.
Since he was elected as a board member of the Korea Triathlon Federation, Mr. Park has been working closely with all KTF members to boost the triathlon up to next level by focusing on young athletes’ development.
The triathlon’s acceptance as one of the Korean National Youth games has had a positive effect on the development of young athletes.
