Rare Pair of Olympic Hero Sohn Kee Chung Trading Cards. Published in 1936 in Germany after the Berlin Olympics. Sohn won the gold medal in the marathon. Korea was under Japanese rule, and Sohn was forced to compete for the Japanese team and use a Japanese name, Son Kitei, but he signed his name in Korean and asserted Korea's independence in interviews. There is a Sohn Kee Chung Memorial Park in Seoul. He is one of Korea's most revered national heroes. 4 x 2.75 inches (10 x 7 cm) each.
