New Zealand player Lydia Ko did not take care of herself by helping her father save the silver medal in women’s golf at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Tokyo 2020 recorded Ko for the second time at the Olympics, scoring -10 and keeping the medal match when five strokes from the top of the table after 54 holes on East Kasumigaseki, par71. Last period, in Rio 2016, Ko finished second, receiving a silver medal with a score of -11.

“I haven’t watched it in a long time. It’s in my dad’s wardrobe. He looks at it more than I do,” Ko recently revealed about the place where the prize won from the first Olympics is kept.

She’s also not the ostentatious type. “It’s cool to put it on but I don’t like to show it off everywhere, not like ‘Hey! I have a medal’,” Ko said.

Not self-preserving, but Ko has always been proud of her Olympic achievements. “I finished after Park Inbee, but for me, that medal is the most prestigious and proudest silver medal. And I think it’s great to represent the country as an Olympic athlete. That honor is also a victory,” Ko said.

She also celebrates with a medal through a small incident in Rio de Janeiro. After the event, she caught a flight to Canada for the LPGA Tour leg. At the exit gate, the scanner sends out a warning signal at Ko’s turn to scan personal belongings. “When it came to my hand luggage, the machine rang. The medal is big, but it’s metal. The security staff asked me, so I replied ‘yes that’s the silver medal'”, Ko said.

Ko was born on April 24, 1997. Winning the 2012-2013 Canadian Women’s Open, Ko became the youngest and only amateur to win two events in LPGA Tour history since 1950. Over the next three years, she picked up 12 more titles, including two majors. .

On February 2, 2015, Ko became the youngest golfer to top the world rankings, including both men’s and women’s golf – OWGR and Rolex Rankings. The New Zealand player accumulated 104 weeks in this position.

However, after the 14th title – Marathon Classic 2016, Ko took two years to hold the 15th title – Mediheal Championship. From this victory, Ko passed 1,084 days of thirst for the LPGA Tour title and ended it with the Lotte Championship at -28 point in Hawaii on April 18.
