Leisure games? The PR guy seems cool.
This is Um Hong-gil, the first climber to climb all sixteen of the peaks over 8,000m in the Himalayas. He has also "been named the public relations representative of the Chuncheon 2010 World Leisure Congress and Leisure Games" according to the Korea Times (but photo is from a previous article).
I have a degree in recreation and leisure studies, so you know I am going to defend the field of study (a great deal of the coursework was in management). Still, I am not sure what leisure games are.
I know there are lifeguard games, in which lifeguards perform simulated rescues, judged on time and technique...
Ah, I'll let it go. I have to pick up my son from the daycare.
