Second country of Asia to be organized the Olympic Summer Games, South Korea made everything so that these Games are those of the conciliation. She reaches there partially because 161 countries will have sent the representatives (more members than UN), on the other hand it will not have managed to realize unity with North Korea. These Games will have been marked by the fight against the doping.
