Jang Mi-ran to Sign Mega Deal with Goyang City
Olympic gold medalist and world champion weightlifter Jang Mi-ran plans to re-sign a contract with Goyang City for an unprecedented W1.2 billion over the next three years (US$1=W1,148).
Jang was offered an initial signing fee of W500 million to W600 million and an annual salary of W200 million, which is double what she was paid in the past and the highest in Korean weightlifting history.
Earlier in the month, a gym in her name, the Goyang Jang Mi-ran Gym opened in her honor.
