Best Olympic Athletes from South Korea

List of the greatest Olympic athletes from South Korea, with photos when available. These are the best South Korean Olympians of all time who have had the honor of representing their country at the prestigious Olympic games. South Korean athletes from every era all have their place in the Olympic history books, but which South Korean Olympian is the best of them all? You can decide who the greatest Olympic competitor from South Korea is by how many medals they took back to their country, but that isn't the only factor that comes into play when considering who the best really is.

This list has a variety of items, like Jin Jong-Oh and Jeong Gyeongmi, in it.

This list answers the questions, "Who is the best South Korean Olympian of all time?" and "Who are the greatest Olympians from South Korea?"

America, Russia and Great Britain have the most Olympic medals out of every country that has been represented in the Olympics, but it doesn't mean that Olympic competitors from other nations don't deserve accolades as well. Vote for your favorite South Korea Olympic athletes on this list, and downvote the ones that you don't think had a huge impact on South Korea.
