The 93rd National Games of Korea, held Oct. 11-17 in Daegu, attracted the country's top gymnasts, including full participation from its 2012 Olympians.

The annual multi-sport event is held for one week each October. This year's edition featured more than 18,000 athletes competing in 42 official disciplines and three exhibition sports. The games feature Olympic events such as artistic and rhythmic gymnastics, basketball, swimming and wrestling, as well as non-Olympic sports, including aerobics, squash, rugby and wushu.

Held at Keimyung University Gymnasium, the artistic gymnastics competition was split into two divisions, general and high school, allowing veterans and rising star a chance to compete for national glory.

World and Olympic vault champion Yang Hak-Seon took part, as did his four teammates from the 12th-place Korean team in London: Kim Hee-Hoon, Kim Ji-Hoon, Kim Seung-Il and Kim Soo-Myun.

Two-time Olympian Kim Dae-Eun, the all-around silver medalist at the 2004 Olympics and co-world champion on parallel bars in 2007, also competed.

High-schooler Sung Ji-Hye, 16, had the best results in the women's competition with four gold medals and a silver. Sung was a member of Korea's sixth place team showing at the pre-Olympic test event in January.

2012 Olympian Heo Seon-Mi, 17, took second all-around in the high school division.

In the women's general division, 2008 Olympian Jo Hyun-Joo was third all-around behind Park Eun-Kyung and Cha Myeong-Ji.

Lee Jun-Ho, who turns 17 on Oct. 22, won the men's high school all-around title among high schoolers.

Rhythmic star Son Yeon-Jae, fifth all-around in London, won the rhythmic event, held at Kyungpook National University. Son, one of the most sought-after Korean athletes for endorsements, starred in the opening ceremonies.
