Choi Byung-hwa’s life was a series of challenges.

Choi Byeong-hwa’s grandfather was the late Choi Yun-chil, an advisor to the Korea Athletics Federation, who was called an ‘unlucky marathoner’ but achieved lasting achievements in Korean sports history.

Advisor Choi Yun-chil participated in the marathon at the 1948 London Olympics and ran in the lead until 38 km.

However, due to muscle spasms, he withdrew about 3km before the finish line.

There is a record that proves that Advisor Choi Yun-chil passed the 35 km in 2 hours, 06 minutes, 02 seconds, in first place.
