Park Joo-bong (Hangul: 박주봉; Hanja: 朴柱奉; born 5 December 1964) is a former badminton player from South Korea who excelled from the early 1980s through the mid-1990s.

Career[edit]

Park is one of the most successful players ever in the World Badminton Championships with 5 titles, 2 of them in men's doubles and 3 in mixed doubles. He also won a gold and a silver medal at the Summer Olympics and 9 All England Open Badminton Championships titles. Though Park was primarily a doubles player, the greatest one ever in the opinion of some, he was capable of world class level singles which he displayed in occasional tournaments and Thomas Cup appearances early in his career and currently holds the South Korean national record of 103 consecutive wins in men's singles from 1981 to 1984. His playing strengths included remarkable reflexes, reach, quickness, agility, and power.

Park competed for Korea in badminton at the 1992 Summer Olympics in men's doubles with partner Kim Moon-Soo. They won the gold medal defeating Eddy Hartono and Rudy Gunawan from Indonesia 15-11, 15-7. Park also competed for Korea in badminton at the 1996 Summer Olympics in mixed doubles with partner Ra Kyung-min. They won the silver medal, losing in the final against Kim Dong-moon and Gil Young-ah 13-15, 15-4, 15-12.

Park was inducted into the Badminton Hall of Fame in 2001.
