Carol Hyunh, Canada’s Olympic gold medalist


               Canadian Olympic Gold MedalistCarol Hyunh


  I recently had the pleasure of meeting Olympic champion Carol Huynh [pronounced: “WIN”] while doing a photo shoot with DTHK Communications for a new client, Superior Tofu.  Carol was Canada’s first athlete to win a Gold medal at the Beijing games last summer. Our small town girl from Hazelton [180 miles west of Fraser Lake] beat Icho of Japan, the 3 times world Champion. Her triumph was broadcasted around the world and she quickly became a hero and a role model for many. 

                I was excited to meet and work with her. Carol was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has a great sense of humor, very easy to work with, not to mention gorgeous. She literally swept me off my feet….
