At the Paralympics in Tokyo, there was hope for another medal this afternoon in women's athletics with Jeon Min-jae competing in the 200 meters.
But she finished just a fraction of a second behind to take fourth.
She'd won silver medals in athletics at the previous two Paralympics.
Jeon lives with cerebral palsy, diagnosed at age five, and now at 44 years old, said she had not been expected to have lived past twenty.
Tonight at 8 PM, fellow Korean Yoo Byung-hoon will compete in the men's 400 meters.
This is his fourth Paralympics, and he won Bronze at the 2008 Beijing Games.
In Tokyo, South Koreans have won eight medals so far.
All of those were won on Saturday, seven of them in table tennis.
