Korean 'Iron Man' Kim wins historic Olympic skeleton gold

South Korean fans cheer as South Korea's Yun Sungbin gets the gold in the mens's skeleton during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games on Friday

South Korea's Yun Sung-bin on Friday proved that he is the true No. 1 skeleton slider in the world by winning the gold medal at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games in dominant fashion. But as it often does, the Internet found an additional reason to celebrate Yun: his helmet.

He was the most consistent performer throughout the competition as he headed into his fourth and final run with an incredible lead of more than a second.

The United States - five gold, two silver and two bronze - Austria, Japan and Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation all hold nine medals for their respective nations.

As Yun claimed his victory, fans on Twitter shared their enthusiasm that one of their favorite Marvel superheroes looked like he was getting a chance to participate in the PyeongChang Olympic Games. The scores for the eight jumps will be then added to determine each team's total score, and the team with the highest aggregate score will get the gold medal.

"Second run was a lot better", Antoine said.

"I'm sure that Yun will dominate for the next 10 years", said Lee Yong, Yun's head coach.

Yun, now No. 1 in the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) rankings, claimed gold in the men's skeleton competition at the 23rd Winter Olympics on Friday, with a combined time of 3 minutes, 20.55 seconds after four runs.

Latvia's Martins Dukurs is third at the midway point, 0.88 seconds off the lead. He wins everywhere. He toyed with the World Cup circuit this season, winning five times and finishing second in his other two starts. Getting us started the right way! "We'll see. I'm not under any pressure". He is also the first South Korean Winter Olympic medalist from non-skating sports.

This was also the 125th gold medal at the Winter Games in all sports for Norway, the first National Olympic Committee reaching this mark.

"It became the best Lunar New Year's gift to our people".
