Skeleton - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Men's Finals - Olympic Sliding Centre - Pyeongchang, South Korea - February 16, 2018 - Yun Sung-bin of South Korea arrives at the finish area. This is the first time that any athlete outside of Europe or North America has won an Olympic medal in the sliding event.

"He has no reason to think about others", Lee told Reuters in a phone interview after hours of meetings to discuss Yun's tactics for Thursday.

Wearing an Iron Man-style helmet and red race suit, the 23-year old rocketed past the finish line at over 125 kilometers per hour, winning by a whopping one-point-63 seconds over silver medalist Nikita Tregubov, an Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation.

"I just loved the thrill of the competition for sure".

With only a potential disaster to stop him from securing gold, "Iron Man" again delivered the fastest run down the ice and thundered over the finish line at over 125 kph in front of a euphoric home crowd where he took off his helmet and gave a deep bow on his hands and knees.

The flight landed safely and passengers were evacuated onto the runway down emergency slides. Airport fire authorities met the aircraft on its return, according to the airline.

"I was a little anxious about racing on the morning of the lunar new year", added the former world silver medallist. It's kind of what keeps me coming back year after year. "That support really helped push me to win the gold medal". Antoine won bronze at the 2014 Sochi Games.

Typically the likes of the United States, Austria, Canada, Germany and Switzerland have dominated the sport but Yun upset the established order with his breath-taking speed. "It's a great honour".

Dom Parsons of Britain was third.

"It's incredible, four years of work has gone into this".
