  1. No video footage of his performance?!
    We would at least like to see more than still pictures and a news speaker!

  2. i know from the harsh conditions in north korea compared to rio then this gymnast has noticed a significance difference between the two. You'd think the north korean gymnast would attempt to make a new escape for life somewhere while not in north korea for this period of time but i guess he's just too deeply brainwashed about the "leaders and history" of his country to want to move someplace else.

  3. North korea we can communicate to north korea for Olympics that is when you know an evil dictator loves Olympics I am suing the greeks because they created it
