Inbee Park Explains What it Means to Be a Gold Medalist

Trending: Inbee Park Wins Gold in Rio
Seven-time major champion Inbee Park captured the gold medal at the Rio Olympics, while Lydia Ko took home the silver for New Zealand.

What is it like to win a gold medal? Justin Rose found out a few weeks ago in Rio, and one week after him, Inbee Park did the same.

Park joined GOLF's Marika Washchyshyn on the GOLF.com Podcast to discuss her victory in Brazil and what it means to own a gold medal and do it for her home country, South Korea. As for where it ranks in her career, the gold medal is on the same level as a major victory.

"Being able to win a gold medal in women's golf proves that we are one of the best in the world," Park said. "It proved that we can compete on a world level."

Park asserted that after winning gold and being inducted into the LPGA Hall of Fame, she needs to recalibrate her goals moving forward and, despite rumors, has no plans for retirement. And her nickname, "Silent Assassin?" She explains that, too. Check out the podcast below.
