Former AMPC President Park appointed Minister in Korean government
Former President of the Korea Modern Pentathlon Federation (KMPF) and the Asian Modern Pentathlon Confederation (AMPC), Sangwoo Park, has been appointed Minister of Land, Infrastructure & Transport of the Republic of Korea.
President Park led the KMPF from 2016-19 and the AMPC from 2017-21, making a major contribution on both the continued success of Korea in Modern Pentathlon and also its wider growth throughout the Asian confederation.
Having previously served as CEO of the Korea Land and Housing Corporation, Mr Park has continued to make further impressive progress in his political career. He was nominated as the new Minister in December of last year and subsequently was officially approved by the President of the Republic of Korea on December 25, with the consent of the National Assembly who recognised Mr Park’s integrity, honest performance of public duties and excellent work abilities.
UIPM President Dr Klaus Schormann wrote to extend warm congratulations to Mr Park on his appointment.
"As President of the KMPF and the AMPC, our sporting movement benefited greatly from your expert leadership - also in your capacity as CEO of the Korea Land and Housing Corporation,” said President Dr Schormann.
“Your continued support and friendship is very important to us, especially at a time when the AMPC and KMPF are doing outstanding work in upholding your legacy with exciting developmental progress across Korea and Asia.”
