Momomi Atkinson faced a tough choice entering the first day of Far East track and field meet Wednesday: focus on her best event, the 300 hurdles, or try to score more team points for Edgren by also taking on the 400.

Makgeolli is Korea’s oldest folk liquor. The signature brew is a favorite among Koreans and foreigners for its clean and refreshing taste.

Its place in Korean culture isn’t likely to change any time soon.
