Winter Games

South Korea competed (as Korea) at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, People's Republic of China. This is a list of all of the South Korean athletes who qualified for the Olympics and their results. South Korea sent a delegation of 267 athletes to these games.[1]

North and South Korea had initially intended to send a joint delegation to the Games,[2][3] but were unable to agree on the details of its implementation.[4][5] (See North Korea at the 2008 Summer Olympics.)

The South Korean contingent aimed for ten gold medals and to be ranked in the top ten in the games. However, they exceeded expectations and the nation was ranked 7th in gold medals, and 8th in total medals. The 13 gold medals won was the highest number of gold medals earned in its Olympic history.
