Skater, aspiring Winter Olympian

After moving to Australia from Korea, Andy began competing at a local ice-skating club in Melbourne. In 2013, less than two years after he started the sport, Andy won an outstanding achievement award from Australian Ice Racing and held the 500m national record. The 19-year-old is now based in Utah where he trains with the US team coach. His goal is to make it into the top 15 at the ‘International Skating Union’ and Track to Track World Cup and ultimately win a medal for Australia at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in 2018. “I always imagined myself becoming a part of the Australian team, which has come true after two years. I think when you believe in a miracle, it’s not a miracle anymore but your destination.”
