Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.

Today we’re hearing about an archer from South Korea and we will be learning the phrase 'best hope'.

Im Dong-Hyun is an archer from South Korea.

At this year's Olympics he is hoping to win his first individual medal for archery.

BBC reporter John Sudworth has been to meet Im Dong-Hyun.

Listen for the phrase 'best hope' and listen for what medal the South Korean archery team won at the Beijing and Athens Olympic Games.

Im Dong-Hyun is probably South Korean archery's best hope of an individual gold Olympic medal at London 2012. South Korea won the team gold at both Beijing and Athens and Dong-Hyun was part of that team success but so far no Korean archer has ever won a men's individual Olympic gold.
